The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millenium
For me, The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo started as an audiobook. It's slow at first, and I had a hard time getting into the story--but after about an hour of listening, I realized that I didn't …

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millenium
The original title in Swedish is Men Who Hate Women, which is entirely reflective of not only the events in the book, but Stieg Larsson's feminism.  Lisbeth Salander is kick-ass and complex, …

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, …
