Riveting! Although I thought I knew how it would end I didn't. This author was masterful in weaving all of the threads of a story together and tying all the ends up. I have read where there is a 4th novel but caught up in red tape about publishing. That almost sounds like a story in itself. Maybe one for the life partner to write. I heartily recommend this book to all who like fiction that keeps you going . . .to the end.
It's an excellent trilogy, this being the third book. I truly enjoyed the story.
I just saw the movie of the first book "The girl with Dragon Tattoo" it was in Swedish with English subtitle. The Lisbeth character was excellently portrayed, but a lot of details we naturally missing. Hope they make movies of the 2-nd and 3-rd (this book). To follow the story must start read the books in sequence.
Narrator was excellent too.
What a great trilogy. Simon Vance does an amazing job narrating. Well worth the credits for all three books. I am sorry to see these characters come to an end just as we are really get to know them. A great series like this one does not come around often enough.
So sad that this is the end. The characters are very well developed. Narration was phenomenal! A couple of the areas could've used shorter explanation, but the story was very thorough and unfolded well. Lisbeth Salander is my SHERO! Stieg RIP...you done good!
taking amazing story started with the Dragon Tattoo, and developing to new heights.
the first is better then the second, but the third is above both.
do not Skip any of them, keep the order.
last hour was not a must, but it might be the base to the forth we will never have... pity.
I thought this one was the best of the trilogy. I went back and listened to all three in order since it had been a while since I read the first one.
Fantastic sequel. What a joy to hear Simon Vance's voice again. He is such a remarkably talented narrator. This is one of the best book series I have ever "read". What a wonderful surprise. I could not wait to get to this book in the car, on my itouch and every spare minute. Terribly sad that such a talented author died primaturely.
After reading both Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Girl Who Played with Fire, I was pretty attached to Steig Larsson's characters, which is really what kept me going through this unecessarily long, and sometimes tedious book. I enjoyed it to a certain degree because of the way it continued the storyline, but if it hadn't been for the fantastic narration by Simon Vance, I probably would not have stuck it out.
Truly an excellent trilogy, and this third book is as good if not better than the first two. The characters are original but relatable, and the plot twists are gripping and inventive. I've also loved the Swedish setting--it's fresh for an American audience, yet familiar enough that it underscores how human experience (and shocking stories) are the same everywhere. And Simon Vance's narration is terrific.
