It could be that it's just not my "kind" of book, but I did not enjoy this story. The 'twist' was fairly obvious, I thought, from early on, as was the 'who'. I found the way that the narrator pronounced place names and character names distracting, and it took me out of the story regularly. I didn't think much of Bloomkvist and had trouble empathising with him. I often found myself starting to let daydreams get in the way as I listened and was constantly rewinding so I could hear what I'd missed. The book is well written and although I can't quite understand the cult status of this book, the characters certainly are well presented and fully thought out. They all felt very 'real'. I guess "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" just wasn't my cup of tea.
I listened to this book while on several all day car trips. I was consistently disappointed to reach my destination because it meant I had to stop listening.
No complaints other than I wish the author hadn't died!
A great story. It seemed to take a while to gain momentum but then it was compelling listening. My only criticism is that it stopped abruptly.I wanted to hear what happened to Lisbeth.
This was the first time I had "read" an audio book and will certainly not be the last. I had started reading the paper version and found it hard-going but I wanted to finish it because of the glowing reports in the press. I listened to it, enjoyed the experience and the story was fascinating. I will get the next in the series next month.
