Has nothing to do with tattoos...,
This review is from: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium Trilogy Book 1) (Paperback)
I got this book free with a newspaper about a year and a half ago, it has been in my bathroom cabinet until now (technically a few months ago as that's when i read it) and was opened once for potential toilet reading but i failed to get past the first 3 pages. Then one day a friend told me about the millenium trilogy and how the author died and he never saw his books sell squillions, he also mentioned that it was quite good. That is all the hype i heard before reading so if you are unaware of where to find "hype" and/or are oblivious to it then you should find this book awesome!
Im not sure this will make sense for a book but i would describe it as having incredibly high production values/pretty epic. It starts off slow-ish but the i found the dialogue really "cool" and read it in a fast sort of Tarantino sort of way. The story as a whole is really good as far as twists go (i was not expecting the outcome, and i guessed who the real bad guy was in angels and demons) and its pretty unputdownable as far as books go. Its also super graphic in terms of violence and sexual assault which may or may not be your thing. Its all pretty relevant and builds on the understanding of characters motives though.
A lot of people according to the first few reviews i read say this book doesn't live up to the hype of like being the totally bestest book ever! Which is fair enough because that's obviously Scott Pilgrim, however the girl with a tattoo of a dragon is also incredible, i couldn't put it down (as i wanted to read it some more) and its well worth the (getting it free from a newspaper) money. Also there are two more books which i got from sainsburys, £7 for both which is pretty darn good.
