The book is a great read until the last 45 mins or so. That is when the author seemed to run out of steam and wanted to end it with some unbelievable stuff. That being said, it was still a very good read.
Cannot wait for number three. Sad that Mr Larsson has passed. Will miss his writing! Glad I found the Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.
Very rarely have I ever encountered a novel with real-world witty and engaging characters as The Girl Who Played With Fire. This is not your everyday, predictable crime drama love story. You have never met characters remotely like these. I found this book to be an excellent sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo. The narrator is excellent and Salinder is the best heroin I have ever encountered.
I thought "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was remarkable, so I had to listen to "Girl Who Played with Fire." Hard to believe, but the story only got better. Larsson had the ability to give you just enough to keep you hooked, making me drive around the neighborhood over and over again to find out what happens. To top it off, Simon Vance does a incredible job narrating both books. I can't wait for the third book. It is a pure shame that Larsson was taken away from us much too soon. I HIGHLY recommend this book and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." These may be the best books I've read this year.
I loved The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and the sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire was worth the wait. I was sad to hear of Stieg Larsson's death, as he was a gifted writer. I wish there were more stories, as I love the heroine.
