review The Secret of Skeleton Island 100 review ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ñ Bruce Campbell Bruce Campbell Ñ 0 review The answer to these and many other uestions before Ken and Sandy solve one of the most baffling mysteries of the da. Ride along as pure thrilling adventure is propelled firmly into the limelight THE SECRET OF SKELETON ISLAND sits firmly in the upper most echelon of the juvenile mystery sub genre This novel and its seventeen seuels follows the exploits of the eponymous Ken Holt and his soon to be buddy Sandy Allen Refreshingly the protagonists are neither self styled amateur detectives or innocent bystanders with a knack of getting swept up in adventures via coincidence rather the boys hail from the world of journalism in its macro and micro forms Ken is son of globally renowned reporter Richard Holt while in the sleepy backwater town of Brentwood the Allan family operate the local newspaperThis book is one third adventure one third thriller and one third mystery so it should be varied enough to entertain any reader no matter their vintage Tales of smuggling and parental abduction abound in the Hardy Boys series but rarely do they have the emotional impact as events here have upon our young hero Ken who feels very alone in the world palpably so prior to his fortuitous encounter with the AllensEvents are related via a breezy yet immensely varied prose where one cannot but admire the author s talents However the pace does sometimes drag a little and what the writing has in over abundance insofar as the richly textured descriptions it perhaps lacks somewhat in failing to uicken the pace during the eventful passages However this is a minor nitpick and other readers may find their mileage varies hereAll the good groundwork the author lays in establishing the characters the plot and the locations could have been neutered by a middling or mediocre denouement But happily this is not the case SKELETON ISLAND culminates in a rollicking good finale where the mystery element is played down propelling pure thrilling adventure firmly into the limelight Ken and Sandy emerge triumphant from their ordeals and travails and this reader for one was mentally applauding as he turned over the final page of a truly classic juvenile tale

review The Secret of Skeleton Island 100 review ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ñ Bruce Campbell Bruce Campbell Ñ 0 review E daytime Why did the freighter Louise always sail empty from her pier This first KH in a brand new series gives you. I found the second of this series at an antiue shop a few months ago and finally picked it up to read on Sunday expecting a stand alone with some sort of continuity as is the case with most series like this About a uarter through some of that continuity was implied but not explained so I went in search of the first book this one And for late 1940s boy adventure it s not bad The ambiguity of the age of the two main characters and their independence and knowledge might have been deliberate to appeal to a broader age demographic but there were than a few incongruities with the ages that the authors husband and wife team writing as Bruce Campbell were trying to portray The flow was pretty well crafted until the end and the story for the most part seemed realistic until the end the authors did waver a bit towards the end with a few naive points for the primary character that seemed well out of character for what they had developed The wrap up was a little too uick and a little too pat and wasn t as baffling as the description but the book and ending fit the genre and is similar to others I ve read from the period written Still a light fun read which gave me the missing parts to continue with The Riddle of the Stone Element I rarely summarize plots of fiction in my reviews mostly out of respect for the author but also for the reader because I don t like to spoil the read for others even with a spoiler alert warning
