#47 Flight into danger
« on: April 17, 2017, 11:58:15 PM »
Just read this book a few days back, and while not my favorite, definitely enjoyed it.

Good things: I liked how Frank went total geek on planes, decent mystery, lots of action, Moira and Ray were pretty good characters, I especially liked how Moira wasn't just a damsel in distress.

Bad things: not specifically bad or anything, just not my preference. This book was less cerebral compared to a lot of other hardy books case files. Jill was a pretty unnecessary character, I feel.

Rating: 7/10

It's been a long while since I've read this book, but I rather enjoyed Flight Into Danger, probably because I like airplanes and I like all of The Hardy Boys books to some extent. I particularly remember the quip Frank makes to Joe about him needing to stay home to watch Looney Tunes reruns. And I do seem to recall a bit at the end about a tabloid newspaper printing a story about a local teen seeing a UFO- apparently a somewhat spaced out kid at the gas station saw the experimental plane in the book and mistook it for that, if I recall correctly.

Those are in fact, the starting and ending passages of the book.
