    One thought on “A Figure in Hiding”

    1. While still a fun adventure of intrigue and sleuthing where Frank and Joe team up with their father Fenton Hardy to capture a dangerous gang of thieves with the help of Chet as well as Tony and Biff (plus guest appearances by the sweethearts Iola and Callie), this was not one of my son and I's favorite episodes. It did feature a hydrofoil boat (probably a novelty at the time when it was written in the 50s), but it lacked any real danger to the Hardys and kind of borrowed the idea of warnings via [...]

    2. In this installment, Frank and Joe Hardy receive a cryptic warning from an informant and are set on the trail of a mysterious medical facility.When I was a kid my grandparents regularly gifted me Hardy Boys books for my birthday and/or Chanukkah (and this second-hand copy I've just read has an inscription to a boy from his grandmother as well!) I had quite a few of them, but I only read a couple. It may have been because I was more interested in fantastic fiction at the time, or maybe I was "sav [...]

    3. The Hardy Boys and their friend Chet go to watch a movie with the same name as the title of this book. After sitting down in the movie house Chet sees that he is sitting next to his sister. Yuck! My brother was 4 years older than me and used to make me walk a block ahead of him. It had a two-fold purpose. 1. He did not wish his friends to see me with him; and 2. I could save him a quarter by buying his ticket for him. Mine cost twenty-five cents. He could have lead me into a life of crime by doi [...]

    4. I am happy about this book. I gave it a ten out of ten or on this website 5 out of five because i like the Hardy boys. Its for boys who like adventure and like having fun. it gets you into the story like you actually there fighting bad guys, driving a car, getting kidnaped and driving there boat. i gave it a ten out of ten becaus the author is good, he wrote tons of these hardy boys books adventures because he likes people imagining what it is like to be them. ilike this one because of the eye i [...]

    5. Things I liked about this book:- it had Chet in it- the father and son(s) relationship in being detectives- plot

    6. This is merely more of the same as the previous booksbut, that isn't a bad thing. Fans of this series probably know what to expect; if you're unfamiliar with it, let's just say these books are mysteries with plenty of excitement and adventure, plus squeaky clean content. Though these books may be marketed for kids, adults may enjoy them as well.

    7. This book was leisurely paced and suspenseful with a ton of mystery added. The mystery really comes in when the blind peddler gives them the message about the eye and they find it on the boat and later in the book when it starts ticking.

    8. The book I read is “A Figure In Hiding.” A Figure In Hiding is by the Hardy Boys have a huge series of books. The lexile level for this book is 750L. In the book A Figure in Hiding there is two main character's are Frank and Joe. There are on a mission to find out who did the Jewelry Sina. Then the got into a different mystery with the glass eye. To find out more good read the book. The setting really impacted Frank and Joe’s discovery’s. They can go to different cities because they have [...]

    9. 3.5 stars, it got a little bit confusing at the first 10 chapters, but chapters 10-20 got really exciting and action packed, overall a great read. I would recommend.

    10. I only wish that current criminals would name themselves such things as "The Goggler Gang". This was a pretty good book.

    11. Mood“A Figure in the Hiding” is like a mystery book. When you turn to the first page of the book it tells you that the Hardy boys are approached by a blind peddler with a warning for their father Fenton Hardy. To me this makes the mood of the story weird. I say this because when I picture this in real life I can’t imagine this happening. If this ever happened to me in life, the situation would be weird.How could a blind man that I have never talked to give me a card with a cat eye drawn on [...]

    12. The classic boy detectives by Frank Dixon--I read ALL of them in my younger years, one I ran out of Nancy Drew books. The Hardy Boys are brother amateur detectives, aspiring to follow in their famous father's footsteps. Frank Hardy is the elder of the two and has dark hair. Joe Hardy is the younger brother, and has blond hair and blue eyes. The stories are an unaging series, in which Frank and Joe are always 18 and 17 years of age, respectively. In the original series the brothers were a younger [...]

    13. This is a book from a boys' mystery series and the version I read was the original 1937 text. It was a bit bizarre! A quack Dr. that goes to people's homes and charges them money to perform a fake operation on their eyes to restore sight? Really? How gullible were people in the 1930s? And brave to have one man do surgery alone in their house without anesthesia or helpers. One thing I learned in this book is that coincidences are astounding! Every time there's a person mentioned as being a long-l [...]

    14. I think the Hardy Boy books helped me with learning deductive and inductive skills. I had to work through logic. Who knew? I enjoyed all these books.

    15. In which the Chet-is-fat jokes get old again, crooks turn to plastic surgery to avoid the cops, and things get genuinely spooky.This is how you write a goddamn Hardy Boys book.

    16. Excellent series for young readers - highly recommended. I read these books when I was 10 - 15 years of age.

    17. Awesome!This book is absolutely thrilling, especially for ages 8-12! I highly recommend this book and all others in this series.

    18. 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.
