    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Just did not get what all the hype was about. Seemed very formulaic bit of writing. Just did not seem that great, I have listen to some sci fi stuff from writers I've never heard of who are better than this guy.

    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    Overall

    This book really worked for me. Maybe because I'm 43 and I have a young son. The dialog rang true. The reader was fantastic, so much so that the few clips I have seen of the upcoming film seem off in some way. Even the way he delivers the boys words was perfect. I am pretty picky about my listens and this was my first foray into McCarthy's work but I really enjoyed this booy even though it is a harrowing piece of fiction. I f I believed in a God I would certainly pray that this is not how it all ends up...
