I do prefer the older Nancy Drew books. In the older ones, she's a nice teenage girl who wants to help people by solving their mystery. She's put together, helpful and is actually friends with Chief McGinnis. I like how she's just an average teen doing what she loves. In the new ones, she's sloppy, forgetful and she doesn't seem to kind. I don't care for Bess or George in the new ones either. George is sort of stuck up and all Bess can think about is being gorgeous. (Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just like the old a characters better.)

"I like a good detective story, but they begin in the wrong place! They begin with the murder. But the murder is the end. The story begins long before that." -Mr.Treves (Agatha Christy: Towards Zero)

Elly Girl I totally agree. I haven't read any of the newest comic book-like Nancy Drew "books," but I've read many of the paperback and I definitely like the original Nancy Drew characters better.
