AlwaysaJoeFan,

I guess the question is...how much do you like the Hardys? lol It's a GREAT book to have but you will need to buy Nancy's next one in August to complete the story.

Oh, ya have to?  :-\ I guess I probably would, just for the Hardy's though. ;)

Keep in mind, also, that this book has a theme we really haven't seen before....the boys fighting more than ever.

Fighting how?

So yeah I definitely think it's worth having. But then again, I am biased lol and collect as many as I can. :)

I try to, but finances can be against me.  ::)

I got the hardcover and it's awesome! I love the quality.

I love hardcover books. I don't really like it when they have the jacket around them, though. Like Nancy Werlin's book Locked Inside, the books with the shiny hardcovers are more my thing.  :)

I've been on this forum for I don't even know how long and can't figure out how to do that with the quotes...so I'm just going to try and respond to those questions. :)

1. Yes, Together with the Hardys (ND 3rd book) comes out in August and will continue the story. Both Crawling with Zombies and Break Up hint at a trip to River Heights. So, they are leading up to that for sure.

2. They are fighting mostly by disagreeing. No real hand to hand combat or anything else. They are basically getting under each other's skins and annoying the crud out of each other. I don't want to say too much. :)

3. Money is hard...I totally know. Save for the ones that you want the most. Or buy them after they come out online from an outside seller. It might be cheaper.

4. This is a hardcover just like you described. No dust jacket or anything...just very smooth and shiny. :) It's really awesome actually. I have CWZ in paperback and Break Up in hardcover. Not sure which one I will get for the crossover though.
I'm not on here as much or I just come on for a few moments. So I trying to keep up with posts. Sorry for being MIA. I've been off on a mission with Frank and Joe! :)

2. There is at least some physical combat to a degree- but no, they don't punch each other's lights out or anything.

3. Don't forget to check your local library! And if they don't have it, tell them to order them! And of course, there's always the option of skulking around the comic book store or local Barnes and Noble/Books-A-Million (seems I've seen the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew graphic novels at both with this New Casefiles series now) and just read it at the store without buying it. ;D

2. Okay- then I'll just leave out the part about them battling to the death in a caged arena using mixed martial arts with John Kreese egging them on. ;)

John Kreese is the main bad guy from the classic 1984 movie The Karate Kid 8)

Oh duh to me! I just watched those recently. I think I liked them more now than I did back then. How could I have forgotten him??

What I do is quote a post, get rid of everything except the part I referring to. Then I just press the Insert Quote symbol and do the same thing.  :)

It's so well done and looks so cool...It would be hard not to buy it.

I would suggest going to Barnes & Noble for that or Books-A-Million. Neither store seems to mind too much if their customers do just that. (Mainly because they're hoping they'll buy some coffee and snacks instead. ;D)
