New Drew - Who Knew?
I've just begun reading one of the newly released Nancy Drew mysteries and I can't believe the difference. In the ones supposedly updated in the early 1980s the characters still sounded like people from the 1930s. That was my mother's generation, so I recognized the speech patterns even though there had been minor changes like substituting a convertible for Nancy's roadster. But the new book really sounds like it was written recently - at least so far. I'm just getting into it and, if you'll excuse me, I'll stop blogging and read on to find out what happens next.
