This book and they way it was read left me confused and unable to continue with it. I have listened to many books but this one is no buy for anyone. The accents and the actual volume of some of the characters was almost impossible to follow or hear.
My heart aches at the fact that Larsson is no longer with us. This book is as exciting and intriguing as the first two. The hero is relentless in pursuing the truth yet, he is not, "perfect." The lady sporting that tattoo is extremely smart, and aggravating at the same time. The way that the many characters come together is simply great. Some of the technical issues become a bit, "heavy." I'd find myself thinking that this author was brilliant!
A fantastic story that I am truly missing.
This is the 3rd in the series and I really enjoyed the first 2 so much that I devoured this one. My only problem is it was full of names that sounded very similar to my American ear. In Sweden, these names are probably very distinguishable, but just listening to it made it difficult to figure out. I ended up buying the book later to re-read. But, a truly enjoyable book, especially if you enjoyed the others!
With a bit of European social and historical education thrown in, this series of novels will keep the reader/listener in suspense and clearly entertained. The book is narrated by Simon Vance. I cannot image anyone who could have done it better. With all the Swedish names and the many characters, Mr. Vance kept the listener on track by his variety of voices. Congratulations to an imaginative well written author and his talented narrator.
well ready and riviting if you have read the previous two Stieg Larson books. A fitting conclusion.
a fitting end to the trilogy. This one drags a little, but considering that there wont be another, I'm quite OK with that. This is more like a continuation of the second book that anything remotely like a stand alone book.
Stieg Larsson's Trilogy would have been a page turner had I been actually turning pages. I looked forward to my walks with my iPod and driving in my car just to listen. I loved the character of Lisabeth Salander who is plucky, very smart (an understatement), and a real survivor. I only wish there could have been more books featuring her and Blomkvist.
I liked this book a lot. Although there is an overwelming amount of back story in the beginning but get through that first few hours and it is worth it. I did not see this coming but now can't imagine the trilogy ending any other way. I am disapointed that there will be nothing else from this writer, R.I.P. Stieg!
p.s. Just watched the movies and 1 and 2 are great but this one cut out too much and was boring. Just warning you all.
