I'm not sure what I expected - this is an excellent follow-up to an excellent first part. The plot is complex and rich. The character development is outstanding. Mr. Vance outdid himself with the voices... I could recognize each character just by his voice. Can't wait to listen to the third book... tomorrow's commute, here I come!
I resisted listening to these books because I had the mistaken impression that they would be too weird for my taste. Was I ever wrong--they are wonderful thrillers and difficult to put down. I also hesitate to read or listen to series because I'm often bored by the second book but not so in this case. I can't wait to listen to book number 3 although I'm also reluctant to start it because I don't want it be be over. If you like thrillers and like cheering for those who are oppressed, you will like these books.
I had seen the movie for this book and had also read the first book, but listening to this book was a wonderful experience. The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the story home. I highly reccomend this book to anybody who, like myself, enjoyed "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."
This book is a simply wonderful gift for commuters. I would often find reasons to go to the store, just so I could listen some more in my car before calling it a night. You will stay on the edge of your seat...never a dull moment here!
This narrator is AWESOME! He keeps you really engaged in the story even when the story is taking a while to develop. This story is fantastic except sometimes it takes a little while to get to the point. Love this series!
Loved it, couldn't wait to listen to the next in the trilogy. I was glad I didn't have to learn to say the town's names!
I LOVE this trilogy and Lisbeth's character. Stieg's all 3 books are great, however I think his books should be read and not listed to because the stories can get complicated (esp his first book- girl with a dragon tatoo). You want to be able to go back and forth to refer to characters and their backgrounds.
Give me a spy novel, mystery, history, and a little science and I'm totally happy
I couldn't put the book down. Where's Sallinger? What's she up to now? My curiosity and imagination were in constant motion. I loved it.
Stieg Larsson's Trilogy would have been a page turner had I been actually turning pages. I looked forward to my walks with my iPod and driving in my car just to listen. I loved the character of Lisabeth Salander who is plucky, very smart (an understatement), and a real survivor. I only wish there could have been more books featuring her and Blomkvist.
