5.0 out of 5 stars The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 28 Dec. 2009
This review is from: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium Trilogy Book 1) (Paperback)
I have just finished reading this book which was recommended to me by a friend. As someone who is not usually a crime fiction fan (I certainly never buy them), I was not very enthusiastic about it but had some curiousity because of the rave reviews it was getting in other areas also. I found the beginning of the book a bit tedious and was starting to think it was not for me, but, all of a sudden, it got a grip and I found that I was most reluctant to put it down! I have now had the satisfaction of finishing it this morning after a record reading time. I found the book most entertaining, evoking many differing emotions - suspense, disgust, intrigue, and some laughs also. The location being in Sweden was interesting and the translation certainly did not affect the impact of the storytelling. The two main characters were likeable and I grew fond of them and found myself caring about them. The author certainly can reach the reader and at the end, my main emotion was one of satisfaction. I certainly intend to the read his other two books.

I feel the need to comment because you have made a lovely description of the book. Not too wordy and pretentious, and infact, the first I've come across who seems a genuine story lover and not a pedant who's only joy is trashing someone elses writing!

A good review!!

Well reviewed, couldn't have put it better myself. I also struggled with the beginning, but then couldn't put the book down. Have now read all three books and would recommend them all.

I agree. There are sections in all three books which are hard going but before you know it you'll be completely hooked. I'm not a big reader and usually prefer an easy chick flick. Having said that I think these books have opened my eyes to the world of crime fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed them all and would recommend people to try them!
