this book is a little hard to get into at the beginning, but as soon as you've established all the characters in the book, it's very easy to follow. I think all the swedish names were throwing me off that's why. It's also very graphic, in terms of the imagery that popped up in my head when listening to this, i don't know what that says about me. Although I have not finished the audio yet (one more hour to go) this is a very good listen.
Excellent narrator. I was so disappointed in the ending until I read that it is a trilogy. Can't wait until the next book. (One of the reviewers listed the names of the characters. It really helped. Thank you for that list!) Very interesting twists and a good listen.
do not start unless you have a whole day to finish it. Found myself getting up in the middle of the night to listen to more of it.. Melt down at end reminds you of todays Madoff mess.
What a great book! I couldn't stop listening. A gripping story with twist and turns. The main characters are likable but flawed, which leads to a really interesting story. The author is great at creating a bold visual without over describing or providing too many details. Throughout the book I kept wishing that they'd make a movie of this story...maybe we'll get lucky and they will though I doubt it will be as great as the book.
This is the first audiobook I ever listened to and I am now happily addicted. I walked home from school (5 miles)four times JUST so I could listen to this book.
The narrator does a great job--the only slightly annoying part is his impersonation of Salander's voice. (It's mostly a whisper)
The beginning part about economic scandal was a little dull but once the story gets going it keeps you interested until the end.
I recommend this book for almost anyone. (almost because there are some graphically sexual parts)
Simon Vance is one of my favorite narrators, but even without his expert reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo would have been excellent. The story is fascinating, and you never know quite in which direction the author is going to take you. The family that our protatonist investigates may be THE most disfunctional family ever!
