The Secret of Red Gate Farm by Carolyn KeeneI don’t remember this one from my childhood, but I’m sure I must have read it. As an adult it is rather absurd, but as a kid looking for adventures, I’m sure it was exciting and suspenseful.
As an adult it is always easy to pick out features of children’s mystery books that help give away the clues and allow the reader to potentially solve the mystery on their own. Here we can see how the author makes it easy to pick out the “bad guys.” They are always described using words with negative connotations like rough, hard, penetrating eyes, or even outright hostile. The “good guys” are described using words with positive connotations such as sweet, personable, bright eyes, and warm. There is no wondering whether a character will be friend or foe, just see how they are described.
As a kid I’m sure all those scary and mean bad guys were thrilling to read about. No doubt, I imagined myself as Nancy, brave and fearless, always just out of harm’s reach. Now if only it were so easy today to detect the “bad guys.” Criminals have gotten much more savvy in their duplicitous methods. Don’t think I’ll be fooled by a ghost costume and nonsensical waving of arms! Yesterday you could have gotten me, but today I’m wiser after reading this Nancy Drew case.
A fast paced read, I was intrigued to see how all the various, albeit absurd, happenings would tie together in the end. Nancy was a childhood favorite and I just can’t bring myself to rate this less than 4 stars.
