5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BOOK OF THE SERIES! June 17 2003
By Jeeves
I own the entire set of the Applewood re-releases, and this was the best of the lot.
Inexplicably the writing of this book was far superior to the rest of the novels in this series (and they were all very good!) Several other readers that I have spoken with agreed that "The Sign of the Twisted Candles" was their fave!
I wonder if a different "ghost writer" worked on this particular novel? Hmmmm... I guess that will remain a mystery!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sign of the Twisted Candles Aug. 1 2011
By Martha
Nancy and her friends Bess and George are going to a place called "The sign of the twisted candles". They meet a waitress called Carol. Carol has lived without parents. She was with foster parents. A man called Asa Sidney was locked in a tower. Carol's foster parents were trying to steal Asa Sidney's property when he died at 100 years old. Nancy tries to solve the mystery to save Asa Sidney's property.

Nancy drew books are very good because there is a lot of action (kidnapping, fainting, and a lot of jokes). I love the end of chapters, because there are cliffhangers. They are very exciting and it makes us want to read the whole day.

She also meets a man by the name of Asa Sidney who happens to own the old inn that Carol and her foster parents live in. She soon discovers that the Whipples may be making old Asa Sidney a prisoner in his old house.

Later on clues lead her to think that Whipples may be stealing and swindling stuff from Asa Sidney's fortune. With the twisted candles leading the way Nancy uncovers hidden teasures and letters within the old inn. One letter of which may bring closure to an old family fued thats been going on over the years.

This book was awesome cover to cover. Lots of suspense and surprises along the way. A true mystery book.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Story March 1 2003
This review concerns both the original 1933 edition and the revised 1968 edition, which is the one with which most younger readers would be familiar. Both books have a similar story; except the revised edition is shorter, some characters names were changed and some events were either eliminated or altered. During a storm, Nancy, Bess and George seek shelter at an old tea room. While there, they meet a one hundred year old man named Asa Sidney, as well as an orphaned girl and her dishonest guardians. This launches Nancy into the middle of an old family feud between Asa Sidney's relatives and the relatives of his deceased wife, who happens to have been the sister of Bess and George's great-grandfather. Nancy's involvement in the feud ultimately costs her her friendship with Bess and George. Nancy has a lot of work to do as she tries to end the long-standing feud, repair her friendship with Bess and George, discover the parentage of the orphaned girl and prevent the girl's guardians from stealing the fortune that Asa Sidney has amassed. There really isn't much of a mystery to this book; however, the story more than makes up for that. Like all of the other books in the series, it features unscrupulous people up to something dishonest and Nancy usual desire to help someone in need, but this time she is affected personally because of the loss of her friends. I found the book to be very interesting and the writing was very descriptive (at least in the original version). I recommend reading the original version over the revised edition, if possible, but either way this book should not be missed if you are a fan of Nancy Drew. In my opinion it is one of the 5 best books of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful! July 14 2002
By A Customer
This is definately a great Nancy Drew mystery. I read a lot of them often, and this one is definately extremely descriptive and you can just be there with Nancy through thick and thin. I was right there the whole time. Certainly a must for readers!
