    "All the thrills, let down by the plot"

    Unlike the first book, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest form 2 halves of one continuous story. You won't be able to read this story on its own and be satisfied with its conclusion.

    This book has the same 'page-turning' style as the first book, but is massively let down by its (literally) incredible and coincidental plot. I still couldn't stop listening, and I still enjoyed it, but I was constantly frustrated by the fantastical plot twists. It also has a pacing problem at the beginning of the book. The plot doesn't start until several hours in, and you're left wondering what the bit at the beginning was for.

    "Worthwhile follow up"
    Where does The Girl Who Played with Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is high up on my list of the best audiobooks I have listened to in 2013, superb taut complex thriller with a very unlikely heroine.


    What other book might you compare The Girl Who Played with Fire to, and why?

    Obvious comparison is 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' as Stieg Larsson had such a unique writing style that is sadly missed.


    Have you listened to any of Saul Reichlin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes I listened to the previous installment of the Millenium trilogy and his delivery is wonderful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At almost twenty hours I listened to this book whilst at work over the period of about four days.


    Any additional comments?

    So much has been said & written about this trilogy & I am a late arriver to it but I have found the authors attention to detail, the complex storylines & superb audio narration to be a wonderful experience so far, I am looking forward to listening to 'The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest' very soon.

    "Exciting and nerve shattering second episode"

    What a story, the girl with the dragon tattoo certainly is playing with fire in this book. It is far more action packed than the first one and has become a darker and more deadlier story. Lisbet Salander inadvertently takes on a whole new set of problems and needs more than her wits to get her out of trouble. A great story which I would highly recommend and I am looking forward to finalising with the Girl who kicked the Hornets Nest.

    "Excellent read!!"

    A very good, well narrated, book. Enjoyed it so much that I have bought 2 more books by Stieg Larsson and narrated by Saul Reichlin. Absolutely recommend !

    "Egregious and spellbinding heroine"

    Lisbet Salander is a sort of scary Scandinavian twiggy with the survival instincts and fighting aggression of an SAS trooper, an unfathomable dark personality and a mathematical brain perfectly adapted to the world of cyber data theft. She bears deep grudges and represents the worst kind of predator you could imagine in your wildest dreams. I found this second book just as 'unputdownable' as the first.

    "A brilliant sequel"

    This really was a great book. Loads of questions from the first book are answered. The first book was great, but the second exceeds expectation. Can?t wait to get to the third, though I suspect the main action has been seen in this book.

    "The Wasp Stings again"

    After a slightly slow and confused start Larson grips you again with a web of cryptic clues and nail-biting scenarios. The numerous stings in the tail will keep you enthralled. If you liked the girl with the dragon tattoo you will love this.

    "Good but maybe not quite as good as the 1st book"

    Fab book but as is quite often the case with 2nd books in a triology you feel like it's not as good as the 1st but you still want to read the 3rd. I hope the 3rd is the best of the lot - will let you know once I have listened to it.

    As with the 1st book there is a fair bit of swearing so not good to listen to on loud speakers with children around. But if you like well written mysteries/thrillers it's a good book.
