    "Loved It, Loved it, loved it!!!!"

    I felt sad when the audiobook ended, not because I didn't love the story but because the author is not around to give us MORE!!!!!!!

    "Best Author Ever"

    I love this author. I read or listen to books constantly and even though I like Ken Follett this author was even better. The characters are so rich and the story line so intriguing. Can't stop listening to it once I start. Too bad the author is dead and won't be writing any more, he rocked!

    I've listened to the trilogy in about a week, my other half hated me. I just couldn't stop thinking about what's going to happen next , thinking and imagined each character. They feel like a part of my life and I am missing it now

    "Over hyped?"

    I listened to the whole series which I suppose means I enjoyed it to a degree. My problem was I found I really didn't engage with any of the characters. Overall I felt like this was a cold a clinical piece of story telling.

    Obviously the main character!

    Well spoken

    "Couldn't put any of them down! Amazing series"

    Amazing, gripping story lines, incredible, unpredictable characters, fast paced, ingenious.
    Couldn't put it down, walked the dog for longer than necessary, cooked extra meals, only to have reasons to keep on listening, while at the same time, dreading the speed I was listening at and the end getting near.
    On all 3 books of the series.
    Excellent!

    "Simply fantastic!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest to be better than the print version?

    This book made me want to be stuck in a traffic jam listening in suspense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest?

    What else can it be! the questioning of Teleborian in court.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The court case.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Salander was finally acquitted of all charges by the court and had her incompetence overturned.


    Any additional comments?

    The problem now is finding something as gripping and thrilling.

    Story
    "Courtroom drama"

    This book concludes the story started in The Girl Who Played With Fire. Unlike The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, these 2 books don't stand alone.

    The plot of The Girl Who Played With Fire is very coincidental and implausible. This book suffers from continuing it, but does a considerably better job. As always, the gripping 'page-turner' style will keep you coming back regardless. You might just feel a bit dirty, though.

    Story
    "Great ending to a superb trilogy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest to be better than the print version?

    This is one of the few audiobooks that I have prefered to the print version and the reason for it is the way Saul Reichlin brings the characters to life.


    What other book might you compare The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest to, and why?

    Very much comparable to the previous two books in the trilogy, these books may not be the fastest paced works ever written but they are amongst the most engrossing.


    What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Saul Reichlin is amongst the finest narrators of audiobooks I have ever heard, he doesn't just narrate the story he actually defines the characters brilliantly (especially Doctor Zalachenko) and you can hear that he enjoys the story as much as reads it.


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

    I would have liked to listen to it in one sitting but at over 25 hours it just wasn't possible.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant story that rounds off the trilogy nicely, the sad thing is following Stieg Larsson's untimely death there will be no more stories of his which is a real shame as I would certainly have bought them based on Millenium.
