    The wickedest, most wonderful science fiction story ever created in our - or any - time. Anything can begin at a party in California - and everything does in this bold masterwork by a grand master of science fiction. When four supremely sensual and unspeakably cerebral humans - two male, two female - find themselves under attack from aliens who want their awesome quantum breakthrough, they take to the skies - and zoom into the cosmos on a rocket roller-coaster ride of adventure, danger, ecstasy, and peril.

    I made it through a couple hours of listening then had to abandon the book. It was a lot of inane babbling between the characters with a story line that falls flat on its proverbial face.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    This series was one of the best I've listened to. The author captivates the listener from the beginning and holds your attention to the very end. Highly recommended!

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    Warning: Do not listen to this audio book while driving or operating heavy machinery as it may cause drowsiness and possible unexpected periods of deep sleep. On the up side, it is more effective than Lunista. The elements for a good story are all there but this ship refuses to leave the harbor.

    The snow in the mountains was melting and Bunny had been dead for several weeks before we came to understand the gravity of our situation.

    Although the story line is captivating, the overall timber of the story is dark and depressing. This is not a "feel good" story by any means. Alcoholism seems to be the driving force, followed by guilt, despair and lies. I finished the book feeling horrible that 5 peoples lives could be this miserable and hoping this story wasn't a reflection of the author's own life.
