This is, undoubtedly, the best book of the trilogy though not for much since all three are exceptional... It is an absolute shame we will never be able to know what happens next with "the girl with the dragon tatoo". The ending was perfect and there were no loose ends, however, Mr. Larsson would have surely delighted us with more adventures of the unlikely couple of Salander and Blomqvist.
Finally, for a great book, a great narrator... It's hard to think of someone better for Larsson's books than Simon Vance. His voice, his accent and his characterizations are right on the mark.
well worth reading loved reading all three of The Millennium Trilogy, Book s,1,2&3
I think you would like it also
and a penny for your thoughts
It's simple. If you liked Book 1 and 2, there is no decision. A review is unnecessary. To not read Book 3 is to live with an unscratched itch. Do it.
This book is so detailed and has so many twists and turns that you feel like you are on a roller coaster ride having the time of your life. The one word I kept saying through the whole book was WOW! Enjoy!!
Brutal story. Characters doing things I don't admire. But as one reads we come to know them and accept them on their terms. Its hard to separate these three books. Don't think they should be. A lot of grit to this one. You aren't asked to want to emulate anyone in these books, but through good writing, one begins to understand them and in any case-- can't look away.
Dragon Tattoo, Fire, and Hornet Nest all 5 stars for me:
I can not believe it took me so long to find and fall in love with these books. I purchased them back to back and could not get through them fast enough. The story had wonderfully twists and turns that kept you on the edge of your seat. Along with passion, compassion, and wonder for the characters themsleves. Such a sad loss that Steig Larsson is no longer here to write more intriguing novels.
I saw the first in the series as a movie, my wife read the book and said that the book was so much better. I now know the joy of the book. I.m not much of a reader, but a long trip provided the time to listen to this great adventure. I'm somewhat glad I saw the first book, that way I had some visuals to put with the characters. Great listen
This book much like the second, took way too long to get going. I know I am a typical American wanting fast based always something happening. It’s good I just wish the second and third book could have been as good as the first! It would go from just good to great!
