Format: Paperback
I couldn't disagree more with the other reviewers; Game Plan For Disaster was one of the best of the digests (particularly the wanderers) that I've read. The book had probably one of the most realistic plots (a college athlete is being targeted for unknown reasons, the action is very reasonable (the Hardy's saving the athlete from a sniper) and still exudes a sense of excitement. This book did drag a little at times (several Hardy Books do...The Mummy case for example) but the plot is interesting enough to keep you reading. While it is corny when the bookie cries, that does not take away from the overall story. The bookie subplot (the bookies' terrorize a young boys family to get hold of an expensive, important precious metal antique)does not tie in with the main plot to harm the college athlete. **Gasp everybody!** This is a refreshing change, as many Hardy's stories (The Pentagon Spy comes to mind: The Hardy boys investigate thefts of weather vanes in Pennsylvania-where farms contain mysterious hex signs-that "happen" to tie into their father's pentagon espionage case)attempt to join two different plot's in an utterly ridiculous and cheesy fashion. This is a great book. If you like the wanderers, I would also recommend "Trapped at Sea." The story is fast-paced and at times hilarious! Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
Frank and Joe are hired as bodyguards for a college football star who has been plagued by a series of strange accidents. This book is terrible! In my opinion, it is the second worst Hardy Boys book that I have read, which includes all of the hardcovers, original and revised editions, and most of the Wanderer paperbacks. There is no mystery, the plot is boring and the action is almost non-existent. The criminals are some of the worst ever included in a Hardy Boys book (one of them actually cries, yes cries, upon being caught). Even the most die-hard Hardy Boys fan probably wouldn't like this one.

Format: Hardcover
The Hardy Boys stories are supposed to be about mystery. This poorly written effort has no mystery at all. The Hardys are hired to bodyguard a college football star who's been receiving death threats and determine who's behind it all. An inane sub-plot concerning sports gamblers bogs down the lame story. One of the worst Hardy Boys stories I've read, although the series really didn't hit rock bottom until the late 1980's. The Wanderer books, (#59-85) are fairly good (and underrated by many Hardy Boys fans) with some exceptions, "Game Plan" being one of them.
