The first of this series took me a bit to get into but once I did, I was hooked. I love the characters and was thrilled to hear there was a 2nd and 3rd book in the series. I started this one right away and was instantly drawn in. I just finished it and can't wait to start his third book. At times tough to follow the characters because of unfamiliar Swedish sounding names but written extremely well.
This is a similar feel to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but with a bit more action. I liked this book a bit better. However, the narration was distracting because the male narrator created a different voice for the female characters that took away from the strength of these characters. I think this will be my last S Larsson book and I hope not to encounter this narrator again.
The continuing saga of Salinger is riveting but not as much as the first in the series. IMO: because Sal is missing from a good portion of the novel. Narration is fantastic but the Swede names are a bit hard to follow and require attentive listening. Not as much sex as in the first novel, which may be relevent to some. :)
Loved the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - this is a continuation of that book. Book starts very strong - but starts to lag a bit 2/3 of the way through. But - stay with it - the ending is GREAT! The last 2 hours of the book were intense and a heart pounding read. Can't wait for the next one.
I loved this sequel to the Dragon Tattoo. I love the quirkiness of the characters, the modern techno foundation of the story, and the pace of the action. I can't wait for the next book.
I'll say the same for this book that I said for Dragon Tatoo:
Loved listening to these books, I don't think I could have read them with all the Swedish names, roads, towns. The narrator is great with the dialog and the story is fast paced and engaging. I look so forward to taking my walk everyday now, it's always over too soon!
