    I've reviewed so many of these books, I've run out of things to say about them. This is as good as any Nancy Drew novel. Not sure what to say other than that.

    Well. Re-reading this timeless treasure led me to discover that the Nancy Drew mysteries are not the novels of genius I once thought they were. This one had the particular distinction of not only being poorly written, but also containing numerous offensively discussed stereotypes about Japan and Japanese-Americans.

Despicable. The mystery is solved at the end through the discovery of some weird cult ritual that comes out of left field and makes no sense whatsoever. In fact, the mystery is never really solved, so much as Carolyn clearly took a hit off the bong, wrote a paragraph, called it a night, and then sent the manuscript off without editing it. I think what's most displeasing is that Nancy's long-suffering, blue balled boyfriend Ned finally makes an appearance, only to once again be denied any sort of romantic dalliance with super prude Nancy. Jesus, Carolyn, just let them have sex already!

    This is the LAST ONE. And there are still unanswered questions, like where is River Heights? (My guess is upstate NY.)

Probably a good thing, because it makes no sense. Nancy goes on a wild-goose-chase to Japan and disguises herself as a Japanese girl (with blue eyes and titian hair) and none of the Japanese people are any the wiser. I thought "Asiatics" were supposed to be smart. This was one of the few trips she took with her father and no other entourage. Anyway, they eventually return to River Heights where all the bad guys are (jewel thieves and a pearl-worshipping cult. Nancy and Ned lose consciousness when they're chloroformed at the close of the penultimate chapter. This book could have been not-the-final book if one sentence had been added to the effect of "Little did she know but she was soon to be entangled in the [insert next title here]."

    Wow! THE THIRTEENTH PEARL did not age well and re-reading it just confirms that some childhood memories are best left without revisiting. The book's main problem is that it was poorly edited. Grammar issues that should have been caught were not. A couple examples: Plurals do not need an apostrophe. An apostrophe either before or after an "s" at the end of a word shows possession. In other words, the Cuttinis would refer to two or more people named Cuttini, and Cuttini's refers to something possess Wow!

In other words, the Cuttinis would refer to two or more people named Cuttini, and Cuttini's refers to something possessed by Cuttini. A word showing relationship (mom, dad, aunt, uncle, etc.) is not capitalized when it follows a possessive pronoun (my, our, your, his, her, their). That means it should be "my dad" or "our aunt Gertrude" and not "my Dad" or "our Aunt Gertrude." However, I think the real reason for the lack of editing and tightening up the story is that the Stratemeyer Syndicate, then the owner of Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and many, many more children's series characters, had signed a new publishing contract with Simon & Schuster for new books in various series. Moving to a new publisher would certainly kill any motivation I had to improve an inferior draft, so I don't believe my theory here is too far off. Had the proper editing been completed I don't believe the word "Asiatic" would have been used as Asian was already the more acceptable word choice. (By the way, the original Nancy Drew series ended at book 175 and there have been various spinoff series throughout the years. As bad as I think THE THIRTEENTH PEARL is, books 57-74 (I think, though it could be book 73) -- also written by Stratemeyer Syndicate authors -- contain some better-written stories than those of the 56 published by Grosset & Dunlap, while featuring the same Nancy Drew as before. Starting with either book 74 or 75, books written by ghostwriters for new owner Simon & Schuster began to be published.) Enough grammar and history! There are better Nancy Drew stories than this out there. May I suggest THE CROOKED BANISTER or THE FLYING SAUCER MYSTERY? I suggest reading this one only to be a completist or to learn how pearls are formed when mankind aids in the process or to learn Japanese customs as viewed through a 1970s perspective.

    This one wasn't that great. I hate when Nancy goes to another country and everyone happens to speak English and the police are willing to drop everything to help her. Also Nancy seems to run around in circles and take a pointless trip to Japan. Not one of the best but it is the last of the original Nancy Drew series so it's worth a read. ___________________________________________ second time reading: They really used this book as an excuse to break out every Japanese stereotype.

Also, Benny the Slippery One Capputti is hands down the worst criminal nickname I’ve ever heard.

    I know the series continues after 56, but this technically is the last of the originals. I'm kind of sad after finally reading this book many years too late. I used to read these as a 10 year old. In my dark room, I'd get scared of the evil criminals in these tales. I used to fantasize being Nancy Drew. As a fan of this series, there wasn't many things that bothered me in this book. Just the fact that it is kinda of impossible for an 18 year old to figure all this out within a few weeks/days.

I might have to dig out the rest of them for a re-read!

    Nancy Drew works on a jewelry theft case. In this mystery, she travels to Japan with her dad. This was a little different because most stories involve her traveling with her friends, Bess and George. This is the 56th Nancy Drew mystery. Another fun mystery for Nancy Drew to solve.

    The book I am doing for my book review is called Nancy Drew and the 13th Pearl. It is written by Carolyn Keene. The genre of this book is a mystery because it is about a crime and good vs. bad.

In Nancy Drew and The Thirteenth Pearl, Nancy, Carson Drew, Ned Nickerson, Bess Marvin, and George Fayne are main characters. This story took place in River Heights. The plot is how Nancy and her companions were trying to solve a crime involving a highly valuable necklace. The theme of this story is how never to give up. I think so because Nancy had a few bad points in the story but she never gave up, and with the help of her friends solved the mystery. A internal conflict happened on page 27, when Nancy Drew was arguing with herself over the fact if Mr. Kikichi was telling the truth if he knew the whereabouts of Mr. Moto after his disappearance. A external conflict, (Man vs. Man) happened on page 154, when Nancy and Ned were trapped in Mrs. Rosemary’s house. They were locked in a room on purpose by a bad criminal. One thing I like about this book was in each chapter, it left you with a cliffhanger and so you always wanted to keep reading. There was nothing I didn’t like about the book because Nancy Drew is one of my favorite series to read. I recommend this book from fifth to eight grade because it’s an easy book to read but it is also has a minimum of hard words. I think that this book is fun to read for all genders because it has a mix of both genders for the main characters. People would like this book because Nancy Drew is a really good series to read if you like mystery’s, and a book that you never want to stop reading.

    Nancy has to find a missing pearl necklace for Mr. Moto. The necklace was on loan by the wealthy Mrs. Rossmeyer, and Mr. Moto worries that his business reputation will be ruined. All clues point to Japan, so Nancy and her father follow the trail there.  This was an interesting mystery. Weird, but interesting.

So there’s that haha. So the weirdness? A pearl worshipping cult. They weren’t the main culprit but they were sort of involved. Nancy and Ned witness a ritual or something. They’re baffled. I was baffled. To each his own, I guess. I did learn about oysters and pearls though! I didn’t know it was possible to get oysters to make the pearls by inserting some kind of nucleus into them. Sad, but fascinating. Are pearl farms still a thing? It sounds like something that would continue to exist nowadays. So not a shabby mystery. Thank goodness for that. Not a terrible way to end the original series

    2.5 stars Unfortunately, The Thirteenth Pearl didn't fulfill much of its potential. The information on pearls and on Japanese culture was an enjoyable part of the book. But like many of the final books in the original series, there are a lot of things that take you out of the story when you read it as an adult. The (view spoiler)[ pearl-worshipping cult (hide spoiler)] comes out of nowhere and is never fully explained, which is a shame because it could have made the story enjoyably strange.

There is also a lot of lackadaisical police work in this book, like letting someone look around the crime scene unsupervised right after a police raid. The weirdest one? The police in Japan having Nancy sit behind a one-way mirror folding screen(just a screen, mind you, not an actual pane of glass in a protective wall) to identify a possible criminal who is made to walk through the room with no police supervision whatsoever, with exactly the results any sane person would expect. Nostalgia causes me to retain a bit of fondness for Nancy's 56th mystery, but it is objectively a lackluster addition to a series that can do much better.

    It surprises me that so many of the critiques revolving around this story deem it boring and unsatisfying. This was my favorite of the mysteries and the one that enamored my fourth-grader self most. Upon reflection, it probably had a lot of unjust stereotypes and was clouded with unnecessary sleuthing, but it was oh so fascinating to me as a child.

Far more intriguing than most Nancy Drew mysteries, at least in my childhood self's opinion :)

    I read to about half way through this novel. It has not aged well. Extremely boring, cheesy and written with no intent to en-capture a readers attention for more than 10 seconds. I have never read a Nancy Drew novel before but I expected them to be more engaging than this... Honestly it is such a dull novel. Problematic representation of Japanese characters and culture. Would not recommend at all.

    It took me a while to read this one. I stopped reading it a few times. I usually love every Nancy Drew book, and that it why I decided to try again. I didn't love it. But I didn't hate it either. It was okay. I'll still read Nancy Drew books. I'm a huge fan of the series.

    2.5 Again, it wasn't the greatest. Also, that ending came out of no where? It made their trip to Japan kind of... pointless? Like I said, not the greatest but helped me pass time during down time at work.

    This one, the last of the original series, was a little far fetched to me. The pieces just fall into place a little too easily, especially in another country. Still, I liked it.

    Historically known as the "last" Nancy Drew book, it wasn't a terrible book to end the "original" Mystery Series on. I noticed others have been a bit taken aback (or more) by certain words and the ways of description of Japanese culture in this book but I think overall there wasn't much to be insulted or irritated at, yes the use of the word "Asiatic", "oriental" and "exotic" is probably outdated in popular usage these days but considering when these books were written those were the terms used Historically known as the "last" Nancy Drew book, it wasn't a terrible book to end the "original" Mystery Series on. I noticed others have been a bit taken aback (or more) by certain words and the ways of description of Japanese culture in this book but I think overall there wasn't much to be insulted or irritated at, yes the use of the word "Asiatic", "oriental" and "exotic" is probably outdated in popular usage these days but considering when these books were written those were the terms used to describe anyone who was of Asian origin or association or foreign -i.e. not white/Caucasian. As someone who is of both Caucasian and Asian descent I wasn't insulted by the terms but I can see how others might be, once you get past all the outdated terms the story itself was nice. It wasn't anything flashy or different, it very much followed along the same plot lines as most of the Nancy Drew books took -which in a way I find comforting and enjoy knowing Nancy always gets them at the end. I loved that this mystery was mostly her and her father -a nice touch I think, I like that they continued to keep the story focused on the mystery and didn't start answering all those questions you have piled up when you first hear about Nancy Drew -where is River Heights? How did Mrs Drew die? Do Ned and Nancy ever get married? Will Nancy become a professional detective or join the police force? Well at least, those were my questions (that I started asking when I was about 12 or 13 so bare with). In summary, this book was good because it was like every other Nancy Drew I'd read before and it didn't build itself up to be anything big like I would have thought. There were elements which were unusual but simple enough for me to understand (such as the cult, it had been sitting in the background for a while before and the whole thing confused me a great deal) and I enjoyed the "trip" to Japan and I hope to be able to go there one day myself and see all the lovely things that was described by "Ms. Carolyn Keene". In the meantime, I will mention that I will continue to read the rest of the Mystery Series but have not decided if I will read from any other Nancy Drew series.

I think that The Thirteenth Pearl by Carolyn Keene is a very exciting book, and keeps you on the edge of your set till the very end. Also it is a very fast read, and you could finish it within a week. I rate this book for kids in 4th and high, since their are a very scary part. That could scare younger kids. Also in this book you get to know a little bit about pearls and Japanese culture. Finally their are a few funny parts. In the end I think that this book is a really good exciting and fast read, that you won't want to put down.

So, as a child, one of my favorite things about summer was the frequent trips to our local library, which was less than a mile from our house. Like most young girls of a certain age (ahem), my love for mysteries started with Nancy Drew—there simply was no mystery too baffling that she couldn’t solve. And as I would read her most current adventure, I would imagine myself following in her footsteps … taking charge and plunging ahead, getting into mischief, chasing down culprits and solving the mystery. Even though I haven’t re-read any of these books since I was a child, I still think that Nancy is a great character—her courage, confidence and fierce independence, makes her an iconic source of inspiration for young girls everywhere. A must-read children's book, The Thirteenth Pearl is another wonderful Nancy Drew mystery.
