I loved this book, although it was long and a bit hard to get into at the beginning. Lisbeth Salander is one of the most unique heroines of modern fiction.
What I liked about this book was the character development and the many subplots, which created another world. The characters seem real - they aren't perfect and have character flaws and strengths like real people. I really enjoyed Saul Reichlin's narration too.
Currently on the second book, and just downloaded the third today. Thanks audible, for not waiting for the 'book' to be released in 2010, when it is already available in English in the UK.
Sorry to say that Stieg Larsson is no longer with us but he left a wonderful legacy to the world of these three novels.
It's a great story but there are lots of characters, I would pick up on things on second listening that I didn't in the first listen.
The ending was great but I don't want to spoil it
All of the narrators really brought the characters to life and helped you identify them from each other, something that would have been harder to do when reading the book instead of listening to it.
Learning about Elizabeth's story, was very moving, and also how Juliet grew to love all of the Guernsey people, in particular Kit.
Very good story, and I found the historical aspect of the German occupation of the Channel Islands very interesting.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a solid story throughout and kept you interested in the main protagonist, Danny Cartwright. I really enjoyed the narrator as well. His different accents and his fine characterizations kept the story interesting for this listener. It has also made me want to read/listen to the Count of Monte Cristo again, as this is what Sir Archer says he based his plot on.
I am a fan of Andrew Morton's and was looking forward to this book. The whole thing seems strangely uninteresting, and it never made me feel as though I learned anything about Tom Cruise. I thought the writing was disjointed. It doesn't even mention that Tom and Nicole were divorcing, and then all of the sudden mentions that they were divorced? Not worth the time.
