Simon Vance is an exceptional narrator but I struggled in parts of the first book with dialogue, day-to day detail and prolonged anticipation of what would happen next.
Not this book. It never lets up and is at the heart of the entire Salander saga. Rivaling Red Dragon and other Thomas Harris classics, this is one of the best thrillers I have ever read or listened.
The smaller characters made this book-- Arnosky, Zala, Burger, and others that made ever subplot as intense as the other.
was impressed look forward to the last one and where will lizabeth go from here
book one in the series was great too Girl with the dragon tatoo WOW great reads
great fantasic listens made walking on my treadmill much more enjoyable
bizarre, lame accents
no, but got through it pretty fast, considering
Better title, same great characters
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best, this audiobook is an 8. I've listen to this book twice.
No, this is the first time I've listened to Simon Vance.
Audio books and books are always better than a film of the same.
Just as compelling as the first novel. It was hard to get out of the car and go to work. Stieg Larsson could sure write a good mystery, and Simon Vance is an incredible actor.
Looking for a total escape? Get this book.
one of the highest ranks for sure, it has it all
the story started after we have met the characters in a previous book, for me it was interesting how larson gave s the chance for both : knowing them more and starts a new plot with them in their seperated yet connected lifes
Great great great...I think I'll be buying books that he performs
No exreme reactions, but it will keep you atached
I listened to the Fire after the Dragon ,as the dragon was done and closed case I was opened for anything, Stiege Larson give you the time to enjoy knowing your characters and their background more before moving in steady steps towards the Plot(s).
It???s well written and built, and provides all what you expects if you liked the 1st part (Dragon), and the narrator is great as he was in the 1st part.
Even more, once you are done this book will leave you no choice but to continue to the 3rd part ??? a bit mean but sure enjoyable, you won???t regret this book or completing the 3rd one as well.
Love romance with a little bit of humor and suspense. A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of my favorite books.
Not sure I enjoyed the main character...still trying to figure out why I bought the 3rd book by this author.
Driving over 100,000 mile a year since 1983, I got hooked on audible books on tape 30 years back. I now listen from my bicycle 2 hours a day
This girl with the Dragon Tattoo is such a compelling character and this second book of the series really takes off on a trajectory that reaches full escape velocity with the third volume.
I've seen the Swedish movies and I'm anticipating the Hollywood versions in production because I can't get enough of Lisbeth. So sorry to hear about Mr. Larsson's demise and the end to the Lisbeth character who now has the wealth and ability to rock the world.
I recommend the Dragon Tattoo series to everyone. The triumph of a brutalized spirit over the worst father figure in fiction and a psychiatrist pedophile who deserves her wrath. What a wonderful triumph over evil.
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!
