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!
Nothing at all like Dragon Tattoo. Picks up where "Played with Fire" left off; yet has a different feel. I loved all three books but think this one may be my favorite.
I loved all 3 of these books. Then imagine my dismay when I found out that the author was no longer with us :-( But start with the first one, The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo and read them in sequence. I trust you'll love them as much as I.
You really need to have listened to the first two books, to know and care what is happening in this 3rd novel. The author developed the characters so well that after listening to the first two books I could not wait to listen to this story. I did find the fact that there were so many characters in the story with similar sounding names a bit confusing. Thank goodness for the great narration from Simon Vance!!
I have just relistened to the whole of this download for the 2nd time - now thats what I call credit worthy. Start at book one and listen to all three, this is a glorious ending to the trilogy - you won't be dissappointed.
this story had quite a few unrelated issues and a lot of characters to keep track of. unless one reads all three back to back, it can be difficult to keep track of. i score it a three because there is a lot of imagination and also the translation
