    Careys Schreibstil finde ich wie immer sehr angenehm. Sie schafft es eine spannende Atmosphäre aufzubauen, die Personen, die sie einbaut, sind interessant und glaubwürdig, und die drei Fragezeichen wirken in ihrer Art realistisch. Gerade im Vergleich zu manchen Autoren bei denen die drei sehr hölzern reden und wenig Persönlichkeit haben, fällt mir das bei ihr sehr positiv auf. Ich mochte den wirr wirkenden Tierschützer, der denkt mit Tieren sprechen zu können, und fand den Fall auch unterhaltsam, obwohl ich wusste, wie er ausgeht. Richtige Spannung kam aber keine auf.Negativ anzumerken habe ich, dass es mir wieder einmal sehr unwahrscheinlich erscheint, dass eine Frau ganz zufällig einer anderen 100 % gleicht bis auf die Frisur. Das Doppelgänger-Thema kommt ja in vielen ??? Büchern vor und es ärgert mich immer mehr, weil es so ein fauler Trick ist. Gewundert hat mich an diesem Buch, dass am Ende doch tatsächlich (wahrscheinlich) so etwas wie ein Monster, eventuell in Art eines Yeti, gibt, und das Mysterium hier nicht aufgelöst wird.

    And yet another one of my favourites from this series!Like I've mentioned before, I like mysteries that don't really get solved at the end of the book/ movie/ TV series/ etc, and I also like cryptozoology (as a concept; debunkings of the "myths" are better than the actual myths, please check out Trey The Explainer's channel on Youtube, his videos on the subject are very well made), and this book combines these two. Of course it's one of my favourites.

    This volume really takes the series in a new direction. (view spoiler)[ In this case, unlike the Scooby Doo aspect of most volumes, there is a real monster. A sasquatch type monster is in the story, and it's not a guy in a suit. It's a real monster. So far nothing truly supernatural had appeared in the series, so this was an interesting development. I wonder now if things go back to the status quo, or do we see more real monsters as the series progresses?(hide spoiler)]This series doesn't take place in its usual setting of Rocky Beach, but instead at a mountain resort the boys travel to with Hans and Konrad, the Bavarian employees of the junkyard. Part of the story was predictable and slightly far fetched, but was still very entertaining. You'd think after so many adventures taking place around their hometown a story set elsewhere would be refreshing, but I like their little secret agent style hideout so much as well as their chauffeur that I like the stories set there better.In any case, this one would probably either make the series more interesting to readers, or perhaps turn some readers off due to my earlier points. For me, it made the series more interesting and I look forward to further volumes.

    original 2010 review - Hans & Konrad travel up to Sky Village, to stay with their cousin Anna and the boys tag along for a camping trip. However, it’s soon obvious that everything isn’t as it should be. Never one of my favourites, with this re-read, I’ve revised that opinion slightly - it’s well written, fast paced and has some nice interplay between the boys. However, the main mystery (not the title one) has such a preposterous explanation that it does feel very contrived, whilst the monster - obviously the big draw (title and artwork) has only the most minor part to play. Not as bad as I remembered it, this is far from the worst TTI book and is worth a read.2015 update - this re-read found me much more forgiving, I like the build-up this time and felt the boys came across well, the scenes on the high meadow (especially the crevice) were well handled and yes, the main mystery does hinge on a huge coincidence, but I think the story grips enough for it. I’d say it was well worth a read.

    داستان سرعت خوبی داشت . البته انکار نمیکنم که واقعا سطح کیفی کتاب هایی که خود رابرت آرتور نوشته اصن یه چیز دیگست. مثلا من چهار کتابی که از این مجموعه خوندم و خود رابرت آرتور نوشته بود اونقدر جذاب بود که جزئیاتشون هنوز یادمه ولی خب باقی کتاب های مجموعه که خودش ننوشته از ذهنم پریده رفتهسری سه کارآگاه یه ویژگی خوبی که داره اینه که تعداد فصل های بالایی داره و طول هر فصل کوتاهه. این ویژگی رو خیلی دوست دارم . حتی اگه میشد استقبال می کردم که رمان های معمولی هم اینطوری باشند ( که خب البته خیلی امکان پذیر نیست ) ولی توی داستان های پلیسی این مسئله به راحتی قابل لحاظ شدنه.در مجموع برای یه بار خوندن خوب بود

    Took me back to my childhood, when I devoured this series...

    Historia nie była nudna, ale troszkę mi się dłużyła, bo bohaterowie całą książkę rozkminiali coś, co było oczywiste od samego początku. Wiem, że to lektura dla młodszych, ale jednak inne przygody trzech detektywów nie były aż tak przewidywalne. Dobrze, że znalazły się jeszcze inne mniejsze wątki, które nie były do końca jasne, aż do końca.

    AH&T3I Update: 20 read, 8 hardbacks to go (and 15 paperbacks):Direct quote from page 146: "No one believes wild stories from kids." No, no they do not, and despite my five star rating of this book, I found part of the story just too unbelievable. Mary Virginia (M.V.) Carey added a somewhat extra supernatural element to this tale that is not really present in any other T3I book to this point. Granted, the boys investigated green ghosts and witchcraft circles among other supernatural phenomenon in previous books, but there always turned out to be some less than supernatural reason for the supernatural occurrence. The bad guys seem to think that they can always scare off people by making some sort of ghost appear or some dragon to cough or some other silly such nonsense. In those tales, the Three Investigators seem to be the only ones with enough common sense and logic to figure out the real reason behind the supernatural happenings. M.V. Carey used a slightly different tactic with Monster Mountain. She implies that something supernatural does happen to the boys and that the boys stay quiet because after all, who would believe them if they told the whole truth? I am not quite sure that is the type of message I want to tell to kids. Should kids not tell the whole truth no matter what the consequences? Regardless, this story uses most of the usual T3I story elements--the boys, Hans and Konrad the salvage yard workers, etc--but the story does take place away from the boy's home in Rocky Beach, CA therefore not all of the supporting cast members make an appearance in this title. The plot moves along at a nice pace and before you know it things start to fall into correct place so that the solution becomes evident before the end of the book. It is a typical T3I book with the possible exception of the one supernatural element that just seems out of place and distracting. Of course, it is meant to be distracting in an effort to hide the real solution from the reader for a little longer, but alas, the supernatural piece is just that: a distraction from the main story. Overall, this is a good book and a fun mystery to read. Enjoy it!

    Not bad. There were more possible suspects in this book than many of the books in the series. Some of the suspects did some questionable things that would set off any alarm bells. Some in series like this someone looked cruel or like a criminal or act a bit suspiciously so they automatically become suspects and often are the criminals without actually having done something to legitimately highlight them as a potential culprit. For example, one man wipes out footprints of a person who attacked Jupiter and lies about it. This would make anyone suspicious.I also like that not everything is completely explained. There can be some mystery in life.

    (view spoiler)[The Three Investigators series is at its best when dealing with real people pulling hoaxes and clear, if not contrived, explanations of seemingly mystical phenomena. By making the monster of Monster Mountain a real monster instead of a shaggy hermit, the author has done the series a real disservice. This is the first time in the first 20 books that a mystery doesn't have a scientific, logical conclusion. (hide spoiler)]

    I rated this one a 3 as I enjoyed hearing about the background of some of the characters - mystery left a lot to be desired. I was excited to find several of these I had missed reading in my childhood. I loved this series as a kid.

    Aku punya banyak koleksi novel Alfred Hitchcock di dalem lemari buku. Meskipun sampulnya udah sobek, tapi aku nggak pernah berasumsi kalo buku ini ketinggalan zaman.Duh, suka banget sama tokoh Pete, Bob, dan Jup.

    The fun part of this one is we get to know a little of the background of Hans and ??, the Bavarians. The story left a little to be desired, there were too many mysteries that were too far-fetched.

    This was the first 3 investigators book I read and I'm still partial to it for that reason.
