What's Christian Reading? The Shore Road Mystery

Last week, Christian told us about a Hardy Boys mystery that he had been reading. When I asked him what book he'd like to talk about this week, he said he'd like to tell us about another Hardy Boys adventure, The Shore Road Mystery. When I asked him if there was something else that he'd read he said, "All I've read this week is Hardy Boys."

I guess he really likes the books. When something grabs him, he goes with it. So, at the risk of being repetitive, here are Christian's thoughts on The Shore Road Mystery by Franklin W. Dixon.

Here's what Christian says the book is about.

"The Hardy boys have another mystery to solve. Some crooks have been stealing cars, and it's up to the Hardy boys to discover who. They meet a fisherman that they suspect to be part of the gang. According to the police, the gang has been stealing cars and then heading north, but the Hardy boys suspect that they're making a U-turn. 

"They guess that the hideout is somewhere along the cliff. One night they see a man climbing up a gigantic spider web. Their friend, Tony, is watching the shoreline and sees the spider man, too. The boys' friend, Jack Dodd and his father were accused of the crime.

"The Hardy boys set out to prove the police wrong."

Here's what Christina liked best about the book.

"I liked the part where they saw the spider guy, because it was interesting and surprising at the same exact time. It was interesting and surprising, because it's not every day that you see a spider man climbing up a giant web."

Was there anything Christian didn't like?

"I think that they could have described the fishing boat better, instead of just saying it was a black boat."

So, how did Christian rate The Shore Road Mystery by Franklin W. Dixon?

He gives it four out of five flaming monkey heads.
