    Ich war nie ein großer Fan des Hörspiels und auch das Buch konnte mich nicht so richtig überzeugen. Das liegt teilweise daran, dass ich die "Ocean World" (aka Sea World) Verherrlichung sehr irritierend finde, aber vor allem daran, dass mich der Fall ein wenig langweilt. So richtig logisch find ich ihn leider auch nicht.

    Mein ursprünglicher Gedanke war, dass das eine locker flockige Sache war, ein bisschen leichte Unterhaltung kurz vor dem Schlafengehen. Ich lag so falsch. Die Geschichte war wohl spannender, als ich oberflächlich wahrgenommen habe, denn ich lag noch eine Weile wach im Bett und bin über die Schlüsselmomente gegangen. Die Geschichte war gut aufgenommen. Der Erzähler im besonderen hatte eine angenehme Stimme. Natürlich ist alles viel zu schnell und leicht passiert, für meinen Geschmack.

(Als Kind, hingegen, hätte ich es geliebt, keinen einzigen Kritikpunkt.) Als Erwachsene, die in Kindheitserinnerungen schwelgen wollte, fand ich die Geschichte ein bisschen zu leicht und offensichtlich und die Stimmen der Darsteller, besonders von Constance, nicht ausdrucksstark genug. Trotzdem denke ich, dass ich weitere Folgen auf Spotify anhören werde.

    Ich staune jedesmal, wie schnell die Jungs eine Grube für den Wal buddeln können, ohne dass ein Erwachsener vorbei kommt. ;)

    Another good adventure of the Three Investigators. I sometimes have to keep in mind that this series is geared more towards children or at least tweens rather than adults because sometimes things seem a little far-fetched, but thankfully not totally implausible. In this case, a beached pilot whale is found and rescued. That part was fine. However, the trainer puts the whale in a pool and has the whale doing tricks literally the first day. She's swimming with him and having him do special jumps an Another good adventure of the Three Investigators. I sometimes have to keep in mind that this series is geared more towards children or at least tweens rather than adults because sometimes things seem a little far-fetched, but thankfully not totally implausible. In this case, a beached pilot whale is found and rescued. That part was fine. However, the trainer puts the whale in a pool and has the whale doing tricks literally the first day. She's swimming with him and having him do special jumps and such the first day! I know whales are plenty smart but this whale went straight from the ocean to a pool and immediately treated the trainer as a best friend and did everything that was asked. Just seemed to happen a little too fast. Other than that, this was a good mystery that really keeps the reader guessing. There were certain things you could probably figure out, but some things were a total mystery until the reveal. All in all a good entry in the series, but honestly I think I've yet to read a bad one.

    I read this series to my 7 year old son and we both love them! The writing is on a level he understands and the mystery has us guessing until the end.

    This is Marc Brandel's first novel with this series. He definitely had a better feel for the series than the other writers right out of the gate. There are some interesting variants here: "Hector Sebastian's" introduction is much more verbose than the way the other writers have handled them. Plus, it has taken on a little bit more personality too. Brandel even takes the time to allude to Worthington, but explains that he is away on vacation.

This is a good case, but pretty convoluted as the books tend to be later on. But I think he could have taken the time to come up with a slightly less "random" happenstance to use as the trigger for the case.

    This is not as strange as some of their books but I love whales so I'm particularly fond of it. There is plenty of action in this one and smart thinking by members other than just Jupiter.

    This is the 35th book in The Three Investigators series. I believe this is the first one written by Marc Brandel, and it is refreshing to have some of the original characteristics back. Again we see the colored chalk question marks, the code "ramble and scramble," and Jupiter pinching his lower lip in thought. The mystery itself isn't extremely demanding, but is still good quality when compared with other children's series.

    The Three Investigators series is a great one for kids, especially boys. These are old books, but it is well worth the search for them at the library and at used bookstores. We've read several and enjoyed them all.

    Olipas virkistävä lukukokemus, jonka myötä palasin sinne 20 vuoden taakse, jolloin nämä kirjat tuli luettua lähes kaikki. Tapahtumia riittää ja jännitettävääkin löytyy, ratkaisuakaan ei ennalta arvaa. :)

    This is a great book for kids. It really peaked my interest with mystery novels. It kept you guessing throughout. Plus I really liked whales at that age so it was pretty cool.

    Book in Bahasa Indonesia that I own since I was kid. Good book but not exactly my favorite. I enjoyed it though but not so much.

    One of my favorite books from childhood. Three boys team up to find a missing whale despite any adults that might stand in the way!
