Title : Hardy Boys : Trapped at Sea

Author : Franklin W Dixon

Main Characters : Mr. Hardy, Ox Maneley, Joe, Frank, Chet, Ted Herkimer, Cy Ortiz, Dave Falcon, Minkovitch, Lanky and McGinnis

Description of one of the main characters : Minkovitch is a mad scientist who invents atom bombs using Uranium which has been hijacked from trucks which go to Washington DC. He is assisted by two burly servants.

Whom I like and Why : I like Frank Hardy as he is brave and tackles a problem wisely. He sometimes gets brilliant ideas. He is a young detective.

Whom I Dislike and Why : I dislike Ox Maneley as he lies to everyone. He says that Cy Ortiz, the manager of the truck loading company, is a hijacker. But Cy is not. Maneley himself is a hijacker.

Setting/Theme of the story : The trucks which go to Washington DC carrying Uranium are hijacked. The Hardy boys and their friend Chet find the hijackers and help the police to catch them. They save the world as the atom bombs made out of Uranium were planned to be kept at all main cities in the world.

Part I enjoyed the most : I enjoyed the part when Frank saves Minkovitch by pressing the stop button when an atom bomb was going to blast.

Different ending : Ox Maneley and the other hijackers become good. They surrender to the FBI Uranium group and Cy Ortiz. They all are happy again. The young detectives join the FBI group.
