The Mystery of Cabin Island The Mystery of Cabin Island Hardy Boys Book
Another thrilling adventure for Frank and Joe with the friends Biff and Chet This time they are using an iceboat being a Southerner, I didn t even know they existed and camping in a cabin on Cabin Island with two mysteries to solve They have to fight off some rowdy no gooders in Ike and Nash and a pretty insistent bad guy Hanleigh as well as ghosts and ferocious snowstorms So far, one of my son and I d favorite Hardy Boy stories full of twists and excitement and Chet s pancakes Loved it
This was the first Hardy Boy that I read, and I am glad I did because years ago when I tried to read one of these Hardy Boy books there was just too much action for me to believe what was happening, that is, every time they turned around something bad was happening to one of them So far, I have not found that to be true of the ones that McFarlane wrote, but I have not read them all The long cold snap had caused rejoicing in the hearts of the young folk of Bayport Although the ice in mid bay was [...]
I loved this book and a lot of the reason was that I was lucky enough to read the 1929 version Lots of differences the first being that Frank and Joe are age 16 and 15 respectively in the older books, instead of the 18 17 age they are in newer reprints.The mystery is simple and honestly this book is a wintertime camping adventure, which I enjoyed too The clues kept one guessing, and ok some of it was a bit obvious, but the pacing was swift and we still got to spend a considerable amount of time [...]
3.5 stars rounded up to four.This was my first adventure with the Hardy Boys, but first a side story Review for this book marked below in bold if you want to skip to it Mama was thinning out her books, so I snatched up the first two Hardy Boys mysteries because I had always wanted to try them again The Tower Treasure and The House on the Cliff I gave the first one a whirl when I was a kid, but it just didn t take for some reason Then I embarked on my own mystery adventure before I started readin [...]
Didn t like this one as much as the other Hardy Boys mystery I read It was just really hard to follow the story and I don t know why I did love the one character s obsession with food and eatingd his hiding those sandwiches for a midnight snack but then he ended up sharing when the rest of their food was stolen hilarious
One of the best Hardy Boys Books Great book for Christmas Lots of adventure for all mystery lovers.
This one was great fun and now I have a strange desire to go ice sailing
I think this is a fun wintery book for everyone and anyone to read

I read the Hardy Boys books and Nancy Drew when I was a child The stories are old fashioned, but that s why I like them so much.
Really intense and was really a mystery I m gonna stick with this seriesReally good my name is bunn Bob hook look noon diem dude many good have toot root foot are is
I have no idea what I just listened to XD Honestly, I don t know Only read this well listened on audio for the Hunger Games challenge, so yeah no clue p I liked that view spoiler they always wanted to do the right thing, and that they weren t all perfect They weren t scared of nothing hide spoiler One thing I didn t like was how view spoiler they acted a little uppity at times hide spoiler I like how even though this one s 8 it still made sense I didn t know much about the characters, but I stil [...]
Another fun mystery, with lots of inclement weather, ice boat attacks and Chet s excellent cooking The boys encounter a trespasser on Mr Jefferson s island and they get all fist a cuffs, but never use unnecessary force An Arab named Yussef is running around in the snow, a con man is running an international scam, and the Hardys crack the case again
Adorable I read all the Nancy Drew s when I was younger and only picked up this Hardy Boys because I was on vacation and I forgot to bring a book and this was in the house It was suspenseful and gave a sense of adventure for the youngsters just like I remember Nancy Drew It was a hark back to my childhood and I now may have to read some of the the Hardy s adventures.
Frank and Joe pull off another caper with The Mystery of Cabin Island, a not bad if meandering addition to the Hardy oeuvre If you re a fan of claustrophobic winter thrillers where no one gets murdered, but where ice boats are slightly damaged and groceries are scattered, you will enjoy this book.This installment in the Hardy saga spends most of its time describing Frank, Joe, Chet, their other friend not the Italian with the boat, the other guy Biff Tyrion , a ghost, a lost rich teenager, and t [...]
I love island mysteries This one has a ton of stuff I love, the prowlers, the warnings, the suspense Good story.
A marvelous mystery for the student who likes adventure, but does not like to read.
Kids loved it Plenty of twists, turns, and drama.
I re read this recently, as an adult collector, because I usually re read a book when I pick up a different edition, in this case, an original text volume One of the favorites of adult fans of the series, the original 25 chapter Cabin Island caused me to go huh a couple times the fact that several teens spend all of their Christmas holiday away from their home albeit a few miles across the bay, but still was the main cause for suspension of disbelief I remember reading the original 25 chapter bo [...]

I first read The Mystery of Cabin Island on a cold winter night about 35 years ago and on this cold winter night decided to relive my childhood re reading it The Hardy Boys are a little dated in dialouge and technology and vary considerably in quality from book to book, but this is one of the better ones and I daresay even a modern kid might still enjoy reading the Hardy s winter adventure in a cabin on an isolated island If you like the Hardy Boys you will enjoy this book I even plan to track d [...]

So the boys are told that they guy they have seen sneaking around on Cabin Island is wanted by the FBI, but they don t bother to report his presence And these kids are supposed to be super sleuths Fair enough when they re investigating a potential smuggler or whatever, but not when we re talking about a dangerous wanted criminal Maybe they should do the right thing and report these criminals when they know they ve already committed a crime Still, kids will like this story of kids overcoming adul [...]
I have no business, as a 34 year old woman, reading a Hardy Boys mystery I used to be a huge Nancy Drew fan as a kid, and I think that s why, when I found this book during our great book purge, I decided to read it before getting rid of it I don t think I ll be picking up another Hardy Boys mystery any time soon I did enjoy, however, the fact that the boys friends were named Chet and Biff How dated and waspy
