This is the second of The Millennium Trilogy and the weakest book of the three. That's not much of a knock since the three books taken together are more entertaining than just about anything written in a pop thriller vein in several years. Simon Vance's narration is excellent, as it is in the other two volumes. There are some lesbian sex scenes and, as in the first installment, violent sex. If you are sensitive to that sort of thing, then take note. The homoeroticism is not pervasive by any means, but the violent sex and other violence is central to the plot, and does get quite a bit of attention, as it does in the movie versions of the books. This book sets up the finale (The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest) beautifully, and that book is worthy of five stars. But you won't enjoy Hornet's Nest nearly as much without hearing this one first, and you certainly will not be bored. All three books are fast-paced and action-packed.
Don't get every ones comments about too much freaky sex? Yes it is part of the story but its not graphic or anything more then the previous story had? Its a good story and left us with a bit of a cliff hanger unlike the last one. If you liked the first one you will like this one.
I have really liked this series so far, very entertaining and the narrator is good. Highly recommend if you liked the first one.
The first book was good, but this one was even better. I'm looking forward to listening or reading the third in the trilogy.
This book picked up right where the book one left off! It is a little longer due to the incredible detail spent on each of the characters and their history, but you don't want to stop listening! The ending was unbelievable!!!!
Really interesting plot. If you start this, make sure you have the third book ready before you finish. You will want to start it immediately!!!
This book has a great plot. The narrator does a great job changing his voice when changing characters. The story is a little more drawn out than I though it needed to be. I think the author could have skipped a couple of chapters.
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.
