In 1982, Benjamin Hoff published The Tao of Pooh, a plainspoken yet startling and complex take on A.A. Milne's Winnie The Pooh stories. Hoff's keen insights propelled the book, and its sequel, The Te of Piglet to total sales of over 2.5 million copies. Now Hoff has turned to another childhood classic, Franklin W. Dixon's beloved Hardy Boys mysteries, and created The House on the Point. As a child, Hoff loved the Hardy Boys; they were the books that hooked him on his lifelong love of reading. Recently, he revisited The House on the Cliff, one of the classic early Hardy Boys mysteries, and decided to reshape it for readers of all ages. Hoff sets this recast story, now entitled The House on the Point, in 1947, when the Swing Era was giving way to the Baby Boom, and gives it a plot involving a post-war smuggling racket, a young newcomer to town who may have something to hide, and a police chief who's in no hurry to investigate. And he does so with a greater attention to detail, more fully developed characters, and a modern ear for dialogue. Publishing in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the first Hardy Boys mystery, The House on the Point is a book for tho se who haven't yet made the acquaintance of the Hardy Boys and those who haven't "grown up" and left their adventures behind.… (más)

Hoff's updating and reworking of the original 1927 version of the second Hardy Boys Mystery, THE HOUSE ON THE CLIFF, is ultimately a decent read, but seems in no hurry to get to its satisfying conclusion. Hoff does a good job of fleshing out the characters, especially of the Hardys' teenage friends, but he lets some of his own interests intrude a little too much into the story. While I found it entertaining to Google the various models of cars he mentions, the repeated references to swing music bands and lyrics just interrupted the flow of the story (and I LOVE swing music). The plot is creaky and you'll see just about everything coming before it happens, but I have to admit my time back in Bayport was pleasant. ( )
