I am a full time student. I love to read but have no time to read for fun; audible is the perfect solution to that.
I've heard about this series for a while but had no interest in reading it...so glad a friend convinced to give it a try.
It was such an interesting; unusual story... I would definitely listen to it again

Simple, if you like Stieg Larsson this is a must. If you have not listened to his work, listen to all three books (IN THE RIGHT ORDER!). The trilogy are great works of our time.
Am now 80 and been avid reader since childhood. Have 3 children, 7 grandchildren. Narrated Talking Books for Vision Australia 35 yrs.
Enjoyed listening to this second book more than when I actually read the trilogy when first published. The fluent narrator, Saul Reichlin, made me listen to the many mathematical equations and complicated computer language, which I have to shamefully admit I skipped during my initial reading, I was ALMOST tempted to put them into practice. The ease with which he pronounced the unpronouncable made such a difference to the enjoyment of this great epic. He kept me glued until the end and I was truly delighted to download the final third book. Bravo Mr Reichlin
I love learning, teaching and exploring!
I haven't read the print version but the audio was great. The narrator was excellent although the production quality could have been better. It seemed to be translated from cassette tapes to digital format. Don't let that stop you from listening though.
Blomkvist is my favourite character because he never gives up on finding the truth and making things right.
His voices for the different characters was great!
The ending leaves you hanging with a desire to find out what happens next.
I know that a lot of people say that they can't get into this series because they can't get past the beginning of the first novel, however PERSEVERE! The first book takes about 1/2 the book before all the introductions are over and the story really begins. The second book it took about 1/4 of the book before it got good and the third, it was excellent from the very beginning of the novel.
I must be getting into the swing of this series, as I definitely found I enjoyed this book, and was less critical of it than I initially was of the first one. It's still a very long book, but once I'd started it didn't seem boring or hard work to get through. I still think these books could use a good edit, but since Mr Larsson isn't with us any more, we'll just have to take them as they are. I'm now looking forward to the third installment.
This book was absolutely brilliant. As the book progressed it became more involved. It was so realistic it evoked a whole range of emotions. I couldn't wait to download the sequel.
i first bought the girl with a dragon tattoo by mistake, but it has to be one of the best accidents that i have had (my 4 children just topping!!) i enjoyed these books soooo much, i was so desperate to 'read' this and the next - hornets nest and wasn't let down!
it has made me so much more adventurous in the books i now choose, thank you Stieg Larsson, its a terrible shame you are no longer around to write anymore.
