To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
One of the worse Nancy Drew books ive read. The fact is its so easy to know who committed the crime and it takes away from anything that could make this a good book. It has a bases to be a great book, but thats few and far between.
This Diaries entry was alright, not as good as some of the other books in the series however. Like some of the other books in the series, Nancy is determined and motivated in solving the mystery and uses her head. Unfortunately, despite that though, she still solves the mystery through dumb luck. The story is also pretty slow paced most of the time, due to all the talking that's in the book. Most of the conversations in the book seemed like filler and I was a bit annoyed and kept thinking how Nancy is going to have time to solve the mystery with so much chit-chat! I had a pretty good feeling of who the culprit was and was correct. It was pretty obvious halfway through. This is also the first book in the series where Nancy doesn't have Bess and George helping her with the case and although it was a little nice change when she had another friend, Iris, helping her out, she was kinda annoying. The author did a good job with characterization and description however and with the action scenes. There was also a little twist halfway through. Overall, not the best Diaries book, if it was a bit more fast paced and Nancy didn't have most of the clues just fall in her lap, it would be better. 3 stars
This was a pretty good little mystery, complete with all the Greek subtleties and hints to make a mythology nerd happy. Perfect for fans of Percy Jackson. My only complaint is that it seemed to go by too fast and it seemed that Nancy came by several clues by mere coincidence. Otherwise, it was pretty good.
