Could not stop listening, had me at the first 5 minutes. And the narration by Simon Vance was outstanding. I love his voice and how he reads this book to you. I will listen to anything he narrates. He kept it the same throughout this fantastic journey of the trilogy. Wish there could have been more.
Everything, but his voice is fantastic. I loved his narration.
Yes. you do not have to read the first one to get the second one....,
its complexity and varous pieces that all come together.
I love his voice and tone.
When Salinda hooked up with Woo again.
Great series, hope the up coming movie does part one justiice.
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.
