The Secret of the Old Clock  - Carolyn Keene, Laura Linney

I was delighted to find that the first 4 books in the Nancy Drew series are available on audio with my  new Houston Public Library e-card, and I'm listening to them out of order, because that's just how they're coming available on the Holds list. But it's actually sort of a disappointment. I love Laura Linney as an actor, but something is a little lacking as an audio narrator. Plus, listening on audio really does highlight the glaring flaws in these books that I can't help but see in spite of the soft-focus filter of nostalgia.
