I loved his other books and couldn't imagine how this one would live up to the others but it does. As with all his stories, it takes a bit to learn and be involved with the characters but by the mid point of the book you are fully involved and yearning for a happy ending for them all. As an added bonus I feel like it provides insight into the history of a culture-an added bonus that I appreciate. A must for any Hosseini fan.
After finishing the trilogy with this book I actually felt sad. Sad to know there was no more to the story of Lisbeth Salander because there was so much more to tell and so much more that I, as a reader, long to know. The fact that I immediately wanted more is a testament to how good this trilogy is. Stieg Larsson was a wonderful and unique story teller, it is tragic that he did not live to see the success and joy his books have brought to so many. I hope his family can figure out a way to come to terms with one another and release the rest of his works. If you are a fan of the "Girl" books, this will not disappoint. If you haven't read any, pick up the first one and prepare for a great series.
To say I loved this book would be an understatement. I enjoy history but by no means consider myself a student of history, but this story awoke in me an intense interest in this period of our country's history and the history of the office of the President. This account of the life of Lincoln has unlocked for me a love of history I did not know existed. Incredible man, incredible life, incredible circumstances and Doris Kearns Goodwin captures it all. Don't be scared off by the length of the book, it will fly by. Do it!
Solid suspense tale with the drama of a tense home life. Keeps you guessing and changing your mind the whole way through.
Really enjoyed this book. I am a dog lover and found myself missing my own dog at home while I listened. There were a few elements of the car racing storyline that I could have done without but all in all it led to a solid, involved tale that I enjoyed. Recommend!
Listened to this book on a long drive and loved every second. Like watching an 6 hour stand up comedy show. Literally laughed out loud while stuck in traffic, my car neighbors though I had lost it. Must listen if you, like me, are a Liz Lemon fan. Enjoy!
