I had to read this book as part of my course when I was in school and although I definitely think the experience has painted a negative image of this book for me I don't think it is simply the bias …

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millenium
It's looooong! Over 600 pages in the English edition. It starts slooooowly! At least 140 pages before it starts to show where it's going. It's soooooober! If there was a single instance of humor in it, …

If you're looking for Agatha Christie-type detective fiction, look somewhere else. If, however, the idea of a multi-faced crime fiction novel that is as dark-hearted as it is creative strikes your …
John Adams
It took me several months to get through this book. It is well-researched but VERY lengthy and dry at times. Don't start it unless you are a history buff with a lot of time on your hands.   …

I started this book after seeing advertisements and high recommendations for it. The beginning was slow to start - especially because I wasn't familiar with Sweden's culture and system. I pushed …
The Girl Who Played With Fire (book)
Thankfully book sequels work better than movie sequels. Movie sequels are often cynical and half-baked attempts to cash in a successful movie, and nobody, the directors, writers or actors give a damn …

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millenium
I was initially drawn to Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo after reading about the movie, which, to be honest, is a crying shame.  When I started looking for it (this was before …

The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare

Hadn't heard of the book until the movie came out (which is a lot of times the case for movie adaptations of books, right?) and was determined to read the book before I watched the movie (which tends …

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
   The setting of The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is quite claustrophobic, taking place in offices, jails, hospital rooms.  This device takes the reader more into the intricacies …

   The Girl who Played With Fire, the 2nd of the Stieg Larsson trilogy, was by far the best of the 3 books. The fragile  relationship between Mickael Blomquist and Lizbeth Salandar develops …
