    1 thought on “The Mystery of the Coughing Dragon (Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators #14)”

    1. This one was entertaining, but slightly more predictable than some of the others. It had some other differences as well. There was no other boys their own ages involved, and the villain wasn't quite as sinister as in previous volumes. The story seemed a little lacking though, as in there wasn't much variety as far as settings go and the characters weren't quite as interesting. That being said, this was still entertaining. This is such a great series.

    2. Once again, I have abandoned Mrs Dalloway for the simpler pleasures of a children's book, but even the relatively un-challenging prose of Virginia Woolf requires too much cognitive processing from me right now. So I turn to an old favourite.Quite apart from the undeniable coolness of running a detective agency out of a trailer hidden in a junkyard, I always liked the Three Investigators because they seemed to be more independent, less childish and more intelligent than other child detectives. In [...]

    3. I've been reading this series for over 15 years now and I've been collecting them for nearly as long. This particular one wasn't my favorite -- it has a great story and plenty of adventure, but I think I prefer the writing style of some of the other author's of the series over Nick West's. The beginning felt a little rocky and awkward, but by the middle it began to get into the rhythm of the typical T3I mystery. As always, the boys find more than they bargained for and end up putting themselves [...]

    4. Iste, prečo by aj záhada zmiznutého psa, nemohla prerásť v napínavý príbeh troch pátračov?Nemyslím, že som tento diel predtým čítala a preto bol príjemným prekvapením, i keď boli momenty, keď som tušila niektoré kroky skôr ako naši pátrači, výsledok bol veľmi dobrý, preto 5 hviezd.

    5. AH&T3I Update: 14 read, 14 hardbacks to go! (Yes, I am now halfway done with the hardbacks in the series. There are 15 additional titles all originally released in paperback versions that I still need to read as well. Of course, Alfred Hitchcock does not appear in the last 13 titles.)Kin Platt, aka Nick West, only wrote two of the T3I titles: this one and book #16. Given the limited number of titles that this author wrote for the series, it would be easy to deduce that he was not the best T3 [...]

    6. I read the few books in the series that the local library had when I was in 4th and 5th grade. I had not read this one. It appears it is a repackaged version of Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators. References to the legendary director are mostly changed to a made-up mystery writer. However, the editors failed to change all the times Hitchcock's name appears so it confused me. The mystery was okay. I would have probably liked it more when I was younger, but as an adult, it wasn't very ch [...]

    7. I picked up this UK paperback edition while I was at Half Price Books a few days ago. Other than the change of the word torches for flashlights, this story was as I remembered it from my childhood. Not the best of the T3I books (which I think are the ones penned by Robert Arthur) but a solid entry nonetheless.

    8. original 2009 review - The boys are hired to find a missing dog, but then discover the dogs owner has spotted a coughing dragon coming up the beach in front of his house. Investigating that, the boys discover hidden caves and a long-abandoned underground railway, before coming face to face with the dragon itself. This is preposterous but such good fun that you can forgive the plot-holes (you’d use a dragon, for that purpose?) and the humorous interplay between the boys is superb (the dialogue [...]

    9. Nick West penned two of the 3I books and it's a pity that they were both pretty weak. This book has a lot of slapstick banter and it turns out that "Nick West" was actually Kin Platt, who wrote among other things one of my fave TV shows Top Cat. And I can hear T.C.'s voice in this! It might as well be Chooch and Benny the Ball talking, with a little Fancy and Spook thrown in for even more laughs. But as a 3I writer, he just never got to grips with it. The story is very, very weak. The solution i [...]

    10. The boys are hired to find a missing dog, but then discover the dogs owner has spotted a coughing dragon coming up the beach in front of his house.

This is preposterous but such good fun that you can forgive the plot-holes (you’d use a dragon, for that purpose?) and the humorous interplay between the boys is superb (the dialogue here, in fact, is proba [...]

    11. Ich kannte diese Geschichte bereits als Hörspiel, aber nichtsdestotrotz hat es mir wieder viel Lesevergnügen bereitet. Stellenweise ist es mal wieder schön unheimlich. Vor allem, als die drei in das Bergwerk hinabsteigen und dort plötzlich auf besagten Drachen treffen. Einen Ausweg scheint es nicht zu geben. Was also tun? Auch die Auflösung des Ganzen finde ich sehr gut und (wenn man es noch nicht kennt, natürlich) sehr überraschend.

    12. It's been a long time since I've read a Three Investigators book. I really enjoyed them back in elementary school. I forgot what a know-it-all Jupiter is (and he isn't even the research guy). It was an ok book, but probably better for its target age audience. More interesting than Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys and the Alfred Hitchcock tie-in adds a new level.

    13. sebenernya 2,5/5 untuk tulisan Nick West ini.Ga sedahsyat tulisan Robert Arthur, penulis asli serial ini, ataupun William Arden, penulis lain yang juga ikut menulis beberapa judulnya.Kisahnya mirip Scooby Doo ini sih, dan ide dasarnya agak ngikut-ngikut salah satu kisah pendek Sherlock, dari buku The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes.Tapi lumayan lah buat bacaan ringan.

    14. It was a little disconcerting that the boys kept talking about how dragons don't exist "any more," as if they went extinct instead of never existing. (view spoiler)[Also, kind of weird that two thugs were able to grab the tail of the dragon and prevent it from moving. Not a lot of power in a "bus-like" machine, I guess. (hide spoiler)]

    15. If only that dragon hadn't started smoking cigarettes at such a young age, he wouldn't be dying of emphysema now, lost and alone in some old bootlegger's cave.

    16. This was the first book in this series that we have read and we really enjoyed it. It was something a little bit different and was very entertaining even if it was a little far fetched!

    17. My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.
