I actually really enjoyed this. Yes, the story is a bit silly, completely unbelievable and downright goofy at times but it was a fun and fast read. Chet is hilarious, and a great addition to the Hardy Brother's dynamic. There was a lot of action, maybe a little too much at the end, but still it was entertaining. Aunt Gertrude deserves her own series too! The language is a little dated, but I think the plot still holds up for a whacky teen adventure.
