This story is just awesome. Part 2 of a trilogy that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Loved every minute!
There are a lot of parts in the book that made me laugh out loud or say "what the H3!!". Very captivating!
I'm halfway through this book and already realizing that its the best of the series. Vance is perfect in his narration, the characters have not changed even a little from book to book. Highly recommended.
Absolutely! I tried reading the actual book several times but couldn't get into it. Because of the location of the setting, I could never get past the city names or the names of the people. They were just too had to pronounce in my head. This is why the audiobook is great, the narrator reads it for you! Plus the narrator's voice is right on the money, accent and all! (I have played it twice)
Lisbeth!! After book 1, I couldn't imagine how two more books followed it but Lisbeth finds trouble and off you go into another journey.
Accent and correct pronunciation! Absolutely well done!
This is a MUST READ SERIES!! I cannot believe that I put the book down twice and moved on to something else. If you love a good tale and like to see the underdog win (especially when she is a girl) then this is your kind of story!
It is easily ranked in our top 10.
I love how it all comes together and keeps one on the edge of your seat.
The fact that my husband and I can listen at the same time on our travels and discuss things as we go along.
Great sequel. Looking forward to the next.
Yes. This is a great novel. I wish Stieg Larsson had written more than this trilogy.
I like all the underlying messages about abuse towards women...ways that people don't commonly think about.
I almost did. Hard to stop.
I'll listen to it again at some point, and I'll put them into the proper order.
I wish the narration had been done by someone who actually spoke Swedish. Simon Vance's mispronunciations detracted somewhat from my experience. This is not to disparage his skill as a narrator, but more a comment on the choice of narrators for this series.
I can't attest to whether the audio is better than the print, but the audio rocks.
I found the intricate character portraits to be so cunning and detailed that they functioned more as plot than exposition. Good fun to not-quite-get-in-the-heads of the multifaceted characters.
I'm not sure I can identify a particular scene, but tonally I loved the book's head-spinning transitions from procedural information to dramatic - even shocking - scenes without damaging the narrative's cohesiveness.
Disabled Alaskan reader of mostly mysteries historical. Also vampires, werewolves, things that go bump in the night! Some scifi and fantasy!
Steig Larsson is a genius, it's a shame he didn't live long enough to see the success of his books. Mikael Blomkvist, crusading publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled genius hacker Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation. Meanwhile, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, which forces her to face her dark past. This time, Lisbeth must return to the darkness of her own past (more specifically, an event coldly known as "All the Evil") if she is to stay one step ahead--and alive. This series is tremendous, a real edge of the seat thriller.
Tell us about yourself! I LOVE TO READ AND BE IN THE KNOW. I LIKE TO TALK TO INTELLIGENT PEOPLE.
ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS THAT I HAVE READ. AMAZING THE WAY THE CHARACTER IS DEVELOPED.
THE MYSTERY WAS THERE
AN OLDER LADY RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK TO ME BASED ON THE TYPE OF BOOKS THAT SHE KNEW I LIKED TO READ. THIS BOOK ONE WAS MY FIRST OF THE THREE BOOK SERIES BY VANCE.
MY HUSBAND AND I LISTENED TO IT FROM UPPER EASTERN PART OF NORTH CAROLINA TO FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA. WE LISTEN TO THE END AND IT WAS GREAT AND WE WANTED TO HEAR THE WHOLE STORY.
I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO OTHERS. THE GUY READING THE BOOK DID A GOOD JOB!
