Reviews - What do customers think about Mandie and the Dark Alley (Mandie, Book 33)?

Mandie and the Really Bad Decisions  Apr 27, 2008
While I have long enjoyed the Mandie series, I feel that this book is too full of historical inaccuracies to enjoy fully. As a young Victorian lady of means, Mandie by this time would have had it drummed into her that she is not to do anything that might damage her reputation. The European voyage with Jonathon was bad enough, but having Mandie deliberately go to a place where she could very well have something horrible happen to her is so out of character for the time. There's no way that a real Heathwood's would have allowed her or Celia or April for that matter to continue their education there with the questionable mark on their reputation, regardless if one of their grandmothers did own the school. I know that the books are written for children, but still, there has to be some recognition of the mores of the age that Mandie grew up in.
:( (i had to put a rating)  Jul 7, 2006
Actually, I havent read this book yet (maybe i shouldnt be talking) but from the reviews ive seen it must be a big disapointment... but give poor Lois abreak, some people say she should make mandie more mature, than others say she should keep her original personality! and also after writing as many books as she has, ideas start to run out, but all her readers want more!
Not so good  Feb 14, 2005
Mandie and the Dark Alley is the worst Mandie book in the whole series. Mandie is sometimes sooo stupid. How old is she now? something like 15- 16. She certainly doesn't act like it. I mean it is not a bad thing to be curious, but I think she went a little too far in this book. I think this book has been a turning point in the Mandie series. Ever since this book many of the books that come afterwards seem to be losing their charm. And all my friends agrea with me. Go ahead and read this book if you want to read the whole series and your a Mandie fan, but if you never really liked Mandie in the first place I don't reccommend it.
Isn't there a gap here?  Jun 11, 2004
I was disapointed with this book because in the "seaside rendevous", Mandie was talking all about how she and her friends were planning out their summer and they were going to visit each other's houses and everything, and then in this book, being the next one in the series, it skips over the summer, and goes stright to the fall! What happened here?
And also, I think the books need to start developing her relationship with Joe a bit more. He should be in more of them, and he and Mandie should get closer.
Disapointed  Aug 28, 2003
Mandie is back at school again, and she's itching for an adventure. And she seems to have found it when she thinks she hears a puppy in a dark alley. The problem is, that alley is off-limits. But Mandie will stop at nothing to find it, even if it means breaking the rules and sneaking off after curfew.
Things get worse when Mandie loses her locket and her grandmother's silver tea set is stolen. Now Mandie simply has to go back to the alley...even if it means getting in major trouble.

I was supremely disappointed with this book. Mandie was just too...disobedient. Normally I like it when the characters are a bit human, but this is way out of hand. This isn't being human, this is sheer stupidity! Just when I thought Mandie was learning something from all those lessons she gets in the other books, she goes and does this crazy thing. But she does get severely punished, if that's any consolation.
Maybe it's just me, but this has got to be one of the worst books in the entire series. Read it if you must, but don't put too much stock in it.
