I started this book to pass the time while cleaning. By the middle of the day my family and I were all seated in the kitchen completely absorbed into the story. Riveting plot and wonderfully narrated.
There was so much hype on this book. I really didn't think it was my type but tried it anyway. It had a good plot but it was unnecessarily long. I can't exactly put my finger on what I didn't like about it. I think maybe something was lost in translation. The storyline was really good though. But I wouldn't listen to this book again and my favs are books I go back to for a second listen.
the strength of The Girl Who Played with Fire is her unusual personality which is revealed slowly in the story. Can't rate it as highly as others because none of the characters are developed in a way that makes us interested. Never did understand the title, either.
The book was outstanding! I really enjoyed the story, particularly as it related to violence against women. I struggled with the reader. He had a british accent and the story was set in Sweden. He would use a cockney accent for some of the characters which didn't work at all for me.
After listening to over 100 books , this is the best ever. Character development was top notch . The story moved with great expectations and comes thundering down with its conclusion . I didn't want the book to end , but yet at the same time I wanted it to finish because Lizbeth won me over with all her antics.
The reader was great and kept my attention. Being intertwined with information of other countries opened up my horizons .I highly recommend this selection and know I want to read the first one(Tattoo) and wish for another book . It's like waiting for Christmas as a kid aND WONDERING WHAT WILL BE NEXT .
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.
