At last something that doesn't focus on weight loss as the only benefit to exercise but instead all the mental benefits. The first few chapters were a bit slow but after that it was great. Just what I needed to hear to get me exercising again.
Easy to read. Lots of action. A bit immature but good all the same. Worth a credit. :)
I enjoyed this book. But I didn't take anything from it and it did get quite dull in parts.
I LOVED IT.
Note: I thought this was a kids book? I wouldn't really think a book about kids killing each other was suitable for children. Teenagers I guess is ok. I don't have kids..
Buy the abridged version as this is a bit too detailed for an audio book. First time I have said to buy Abridged version, as I travel a lot so usually for me the longer a book the better. However an Abridged version of this book would probably have had me it a 5 star.
Not a bad book. I don't like the ending it was a bit bland. There was so much the author could have written to make a brilliant ending.
Worth the read but not a book to rave about.
If you liked the first book - you will love this one all the same.
This isn't a bad book but it really isn't anything new. It covers some really basic stuff...Not bad if you haven't read or listened to anything like this before...
I would definitely recommend this book even if you don't usually read mystery novels. The author does a great job of setting the scene and the characters for which there are many. But even with so many characters the author has the ability to ensure that you can remember the most important.
The very main characters Norwegian Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Bloomkvists are brilliantly miles apart in appearance and age but a wonderful duo for characters so intriguing and likeable that you just keep you wanting to know more about them.
Lizbeth is an intriguing 25 year old and is a private detective of sorts. However her life will fascinate you as much as the mystery trying to be solved. Mikael a financial journalist and editor of a magazine, is also a fantastic main character, and also addictive in the sense that the author only lets you know so much about him. Mikael is very blunt and straightforward. He is characterised very male in his life style. Never fully settled yet has the life that many other males would dream off and the type of man that send some women nuts over.
The mystery itself starts almost like a who done it novel, with the exception that the suspects are on a island instead of house. But it is so much more then that. The main characters Mikael and Lizbeth really make this book what it is and the questioning psychology and interest in people's personality that the author demonstrates in the book is what sets this book apart.
This book is the first of a trilogy. I loved every moment of the book and cannot wait to read the next two...
Oh and just a quick note on the author. He wrote this book as a hobby each night after work and the author's books are not overrated and are addictive.
I found this book basic. Mitch's experience does not surprise me. It's nothing new as many Rabi's or church Pasteur's are somewhat inspiring. The book is short and not a terrible read. Mitch is a good writer of course, You just have to read Tuesday's with Morrie to know that and if you haven't read Tuesday's with Morrie, this book is no where near as good. The books is Just very simple. Great for teenage kids or new church goers. The book donates a certain percentage of it's revenue to a charity.
