As confusing as this mystery was, I really liked it. Having to really concentrate and think about the mystery and the clues instead of it all being so obvious (like many of the more recent ND books) was very refreshing. And I like these older editions because of the differences in spelling and talk: "tyre" for tire, "storeys" instead of stories, etc. It's really interesting!

As for the storyline itself, not the best ND I've ever read, but fairly good. It was more confusing then usual, there were a lot of times where I just couldn't understand what the significance of something was, and sometimes that frustrated me. I think it also kind of got annoying that Nancy and crew spent so much time investigating the castle when (until the end) it wasn't even known to be connected with the actual case. But it was a good read. ( )
