This is how I wanted the first of the series to read. It is the first book in a long time that I was not able to put down. I actually stayed after work for 2 hours so I could sit in my office and be alone while reading this. Filled with suspense and action through out. Absolutely great writing!
I enjoyed the entire series so much! I have only one negative comment, and it might just be me, but I had trouble keeping all of the characters straight with so many names ending with "son" and others that sounded so much alike, I got confused as to who was who. Other than that, the book was wonderfully written and the characters really came alive! I wish there were more.
I am a regular listener of Audiobooks. This one specially caught my total attention throughout all three parts. I literally couldn't stop listening at it. I was happy I finished it so I could finally get proper sleep. Now I feel like listening to it again!
I was very entertained by this book. I read them out of order, but it was still awesome! I read "....dragon tatoo" after this one and the two don't conflict the other. You can read one and still be pulled in with another. The narrator was amazing. I had to keep asking myslef if it was narrated by more than one person because he truly bought the characters to life. Good book!
Audiobooks allow book nerds like me to venture out in public and keep "reading."
I liked it - better than the Dragon Tattoo - and I like that the series is building and I'm starting to care about the characters.
I'm a middle school English teacher and mother of one teen girl. I tend to read paper copies of YA books and listen to books for adults.
This book started slowly and with a gazillion characters / names that were difficult for me to keep track of. However, after the crime occurs, the story gets increasingly interesting. This book reveals a lot of background and history behind the most interesting title character.
I love to read books that come in a series and with that I understand that you can expect a lull in the story. This is never the case with the Stieg Larsson "Girl" series. Every moment is exciting and there are so many twistes in the story,
not quite as good as number 1 in the series, yet better than number three. doesn't matter. still a superior book and you'll listen to all three anyways.
Well, it was interesting. The structure did not seem as finely honed as his first; the whole hurricane section of the book seems unrelated to the rest.
Well plotted, tense, interesting characters. Don't know that I'd see the movie.
I read the first book in this series and it took a bit of time for me to warm up to it. I decided to listen to this one and it far surpassed my expectations. The story is instantly engrossing and, as most Audible listeners know, the narrator can make or break the story. He absolutely makes it. I have listened to this non-stop and am about to download to next. Don't miss this.
