One of my biggest pet peeves about audiobooks is the ability(or lack of ability) of the reader to play different parts(male and female). Many books with lots of characters have an entire cast. This book, and the two that follow, are read by one woman. SHE IS AMAZING.
I'm currently listening to the third book in the series and I am still wowed by her abilities.
I enjoyed Poison Study--enough to want to read the second one. Magic Study is even better. There is magic, well-described characters, lots of action(moreso in the second book), and tons of novel ideas. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good fantasy story.
This is the first audiobook I ever listened to and I am now happily addicted. I walked home from school (5 miles)four times JUST so I could listen to this book.
The narrator does a great job--the only slightly annoying part is his impersonation of Salander's voice. (It's mostly a whisper)
The beginning part about economic scandal was a little dull but once the story gets going it keeps you interested until the end.
I recommend this book for almost anyone. (almost because there are some graphically sexual parts)
