I've moved from Ajijic Mexico, where I lived for ten years, to Carlsbad Ca. Love the weather in S. Cal.
I HAVE LISTENED TO ALL THREE OF STIEG LARSSON BOOKS. I LOVED EACH ONE. HOW SAD THAT THIS IS THE END.
I love this book, the author and the narrator. That goes for all three of them. I agree with all the raves and positives posted here. It is unique in style, characters and plot.
I listened to the others in the series and wanted a little closure to the tale,
No I didn't
Oh my it does go on. Predictable childish sense of good and evil. Tries to be PC to the detriment of the story, NO SOUL, no opinion just drones on
Salander with a cockney accent? You've got to be kidding me. All the women's "voices" are breathy and limp. Some books are brought to life by the audible format; this book is totally messed up by the delivery.
I absolutely loved the first two books. My life was on pause until each thrilling end. But with the hornets next, I've tried four times now to finish but just can't do it. Will someone please just tell me if Elizabeth wins because I'd rather punch myself in the face than listen to more word of this book!
greatest story telling
Very compelling voice and great story telling ability
I was on
I enjoyed the depth of character development, historical perspectives and narratives, the continuing theme of cultural identity of women, and the story is supremely brilliant.
I am just unhappy that there is not going to be a 4th book.
reading is pure joy
long-winded and boring... tells us "he was this" and "she was that" ... instead of creating real characters. Lisbeth spends 1/2 the novel in a hospital bed off stage.
There is a definite dwindling quality in this series.
Michael Connolly has nothing to be worried about --
Try Jo Nesbo anyday instead.
I read the first two books in this trilogy and so when I listened to this one I found all the different characters a little hard to follow but the story was so enthralling that it didn't matter!
For whatever reason, the writing is better and the plot is better in this book. The first book was pretty good, as it introduced the characters and the overall ideas. The second book was tedious and cliche'. In all books, the F-bomb is used way too much to be credible, sex is everywhere, and heaven knows why the author believes we need to know the microprocessor speed of every computer a character walks by in the stories; however, this book comes to a rather satisfying conclusion and was a fun end to the series. Not sure that the purchase of these three audiobooks was quite worth it, but it is very hard to find fiction that is well written, and this stuff is therefore well above average. It isn't Tolkien, Tolstoy, or Fennemore-Cooper (or really, even as good as Stephen King), but was still an enjoyable time listening to these books.
