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.
"The Girl" trilogy had a lot to prove given all the hype surrounding it. I almost expected to be disappointed and after the first couple hours I thought I might be right. I stuck with it and as the story developed I became hooked and couldn't download the other two books quick enough. Of the three great books I feel "plays with fire" was phenomenal. It was far more centered around one of the most intriguing characters ever developed, Lizabeth Salander.
This second book follows right where the first book left off. Keeps you interested all the way through. The end makes you pick up the third book in order to see how the story continues.
This book is good but you have to be patient it starts rather slow. I guess I had the same complaint with the first book but this one seems to start even slower! If you enjoyed the first book , you will enjoy this book but warning it’s another slow starter!
WIth that being said, I think the three-stars is fair. It is possible that I may have had more appreciation of the second book if I had listened to the first book as well. It was a fairly interesting with decent plot and character development. I think I would have liked more plot twists, as opposed to just building up the big "D'enouement" throughout the entire book. That kind of build up makes it very tough for the author to deliver.
Cute story....buy it on sale.
I liked book 1, and this book's ending wasn't that great. I felt there could have been 2 more chapters and I would have been a lot happier. Ends did not seem finished.
