On a lark, I reread this as a 63 year-old because it was such a favorite when I was about 8 or 9. I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed this re-read. Of course this is not "good" literature and like all the Nancy Drew books I read as a child is formulaic. Unfortunately, I don't think my daughter would want her daughter reading these books, simply because they are not "good" literature. However, I couldn't believe how exciting it was today as it was back then. I couldn't put it down. I liked the simplicity and yet the plot at the same time. It sparkled for me and not just from bringing back memories of childhood. Of course, it's a quick read. I don't think there is anything wrong with getting a reluctant reader to get hooked on these. Nancy Drew hooked me on reading more than any other books and I can imagine younger girls today might want to devour them as I did back in the early 60's.

I bought this for my 7 year old second grader, who loves Nancy Drew mysteries. The vocabulary is excellent, & it is a quick read. There is no objectionable language and it is chaste enough for young children. Additionally, Nancy Drew doesn't behave disrespectfully to her parents, use incorrect grammar, or throw her friends under the bus like Junie B. Jones, another fictional titled character that was causing some stress between my daughter and me.

My daughter's reading level has improved immeasurably since beginning these Nancy Drew books & her love of reading has escalated as every chapter ends with a minor cliffhanger. She used to complain about her school mandated 20 daily minutes of reading, but now wants to sit down together and solve these mysteries. Thank you, Carolyn Keene!

I grew up on the original series of books that had belonged to my own mother in the 30s and 40s. I had no idea they had tweaked the books in the late 50s to make Nancy more demure and deferential to men. Glad they are bringing back the original editions/printing! My great niece <3 reads them amazingly well for a 1st grader and discusses the stories in depth! I send her one, in their order, every other month. I want her to have the entire collection as I did and as her great grandmother did. So thankful for this revival of the original printing.

My mother got me hooked on Nancy Drew when I was in my teens. We used to have the hard back books, but I have no idea what happened to them, so I decided to start over again with the 1st book on my Kindle. I read it from start to finish last night. I haven't done that since I was 17! Granted, these books are nothing like today's books, but hey, that's why I like them! ;-) Nancy Drew has an innocence about her that is a breath of fresh air. She is adventurous, friendly, and caring. All of the characteristics I look for in a best friend. She has a heart of gold and she has the best of intentions. I look forward to reading book number 2 again and reliving my youth!

I received the original print (blue book/orange writing), instead of the pictured second print (blue book/black writing), but I am extremely happy with it. I have started to collect the *original* ND books, and I am trying to collect all of the original prints. Book arrived in three days--well before the estimated delivery date. Would definitely recommend this seller!

I have a copy of the book from 1930 and there is not a whole lot of resemblance between the story in my book and your version. Frankly, I like my book version a lot better than the one you sold me. Relationships are changed, names are somewhat different, and the story in my book is far more exciting than yours. Your version, it seems to me, is someone writing down what they remember of the story.

When I was 10, a friend of my mother's gave me a set (about 10 books) of early Nancy Drew mysteries that she had from when she was a little girl. Among them was this book - The Mystery at Lilac Inn. It was the first Nancy Drew mystery I read, and I fell in love with Nancy and the teen girl mystery genre.

Eventually, in one of the many moves my family made while I was growing up, that beloved original set of 10 books somehow didn't make it with us. I was devastated, but I started my collection again with the newer Grosset & Dunlap books from the 1970s. But, Nancy was not MY Nancy from those original 10 books.

Enter Applewood and its line of reprints of several of the 1930s original Nancy Drew mysteries. Of course I had to buy this one. Possibly because it was the first of the series I ever read, this one will always be my favorite. Nancy is independent, competent, intelligent, and level-headed as she depicts a teenager who manages to push the boundaries of her society's gender expectations. The writing isn't as "snappy" as the revised versions of the 1970s, but there is more richness in these original versions that is not equalled by the 1970s versions.

What I especially like about these Applewood reprints, and especially this one, are the introductory essays by writers who shed some interesting light on the series and the characters. Mystery at Lilac Inn is introduced by Mildren Wirt, one of the original "Carolyn Keene" ghost writers, who had forward-thinking ideas of gender roles when she was writing back in the 1930s. It is a pleasure to re-read this and the other Applewood reprints. It's a window into our social history.

My 10 year old one is falling in love with this series. We have read the Nancy drew Clue Crew books, but this is new to her. She seems to like it a lot. I glanced through it and enjoyed the "good old day" mentality and writing style. My daughter recommends this book to everyone who is wondering if they should get it or not A classic.
