Edmond Gagnon‘s review

Feb 25, 2017  · 


I have to admit the size of this novel scared me at first…724 pages! But being in Mexico with nothing to do and all day to do it, I banged it off in about a week. I had to leave some time for drinking beer and laying around the pool.
I couldn’t remember if I’d seen the movie made from Stieg Larsson’s first installment of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I started the book with an open mind. I thought it read a bit deep and dark at first, with complex characters I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep track of, but the next thing I knew I was 300 pages into it and completely engrossed.
I’m a constant complainer of too much fluff, but I barely skimmed, finding the character traits and backstory all interesting.
The end seemed a bit abrupt, but the beginning of the next installment was included and it appears the story will go on with The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest.
A very good book that I had no problem giving five stars.
 

One thought on “The Girl Who Played With Fire – Stieg Larsson

  1. There’s a trilogy of Larsson’s, The Girl Who…books…a good film version of the Dragon Tattoo book if you watch the original – not the US knock off…If I am not mistaken, the author died while working on the third book…it was almost finished and his work was completed by someone else…Could be wrong, don’t quote me on this…but it was a Swedish guy who first turned me on to this author. …M
