Finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

I really enjoyed this one. I‘m not sure if I will continue the series but I feel like this one could stand on its own if you read it and decided not to continue.

This was quite the thriller. The twist and turns, the surprises, and the characters made this for quite an enthralling read. Not recommended if you trigger off violence easily. #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks

@Eggs & @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks
The first character I thought of for this one is Lizbeth Salander from the tagged book and the entire Millennium series. She is a badass and motivates all kinds of people to do things. She is always three steps ahead and handles all the business. It may be with pain, but she motivates😂

Eggs Love this art! Haven‘t read the book but loved the movie! 2y

I started this back when it was my January #bookspin selection, and other things kept getting in the way. I almost gave up several times, but I am sooo glad that I didn‘t! I read for several hours yesterday and didn‘t even realize it. So much intricate weaving of storylines, but it never felt overwhelming. Still not sure why this title was chosen though!

Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander work to uncover the truth about Harriets disappearance.

This is definitely a captivating book but I find it funny that the title is about the girl with the dragon tattoo but she is at most times not the main character. It‘s a good title though.

It took me awhile to get into this book. I must have been half way through before I started really enjoying it. The Salander character was great, and the book was the most interesting when it was writing about her. There were a lot of characters to keep straight, I felt like I really had to concentrate when I was reading it. But once I got into it, I really loved the book.

1. The tagged book was okay. I am glad I read it. The missing person storyline was very good. I could have done with the corrupt businessman storyline. I loved the original movie!

2. So I‘m going to say Bob‘s Burgers because I‘m watching it right now and cracking up laughing 😂

3. February was alright. I didn‘t get through as many books as I wanted to. Onto March!

Millennium 1. I'm a big fan of Lisbeth Salander! The plot is intriguing and the characters diverse. I liked the switching of the viewpoints. The way names are always called with first and last name, annoyed me a bit at first, but it did make everything more clear. Some plotholes didn't make completely sense to me, but I guess that's how it would be for real, so that makes it well written!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was unfortunately not a favorite. It took about 300 pages for the story to be laid out and then finally picked up with the investigation. But the ending dragged on too long. The actual search for the missing niece was interesting when we finally got to it. But the lead up and the conclusion were sort of mind numbing. I‘m glad I finally read it but I can‘t say I recommend it.

#novelwatchingcrew #nwc

Texreader I loved this trilogy but I agree about the first part of the book. It is mind-numbing boring. 2y
mollyrotondo @Texreader yes. I liked the search for the truth part of the book and thought all of the pieces worked really well but the exposition was grueling. Is the second book laid out the same way? 2y
Texreader @mollyrotondo I don‘t remember, but I also don‘t recall having a problem with how the story was told. 2y

3. No plans for Valentines Day. Just reading and maybe watch a movie later.

I‘m back to our tagged book. I‘m over 200 pages in and there‘s still a lot of talking but no action. I can‘t say I‘m liking it but I am interested in how it‘s all going to shake out.

1. I chose The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It‘s a bit slow and a lot of telling instead of showing. I‘m about 200 pages in. I‘m intrigued but it‘s not a quick read for me.

2. The Crow Girl by Erik Axl Sund. That was a fast paced read. In the U.S. the trilogy was compiled into one big volume but I read it so quickly. Really good read.

3. Yeah definitely chocolate 🍫 Especially Charbonnel et Walker Pink Heart truffles. Champagne filled!

Lizbeth Salander is a great character. The “locked room” mystery at the heart of this novel was great. (Mikael Blomqvist, however, is tedious...) Loved this one.

Part was a pick. Part was a pan. So that balances to a So-So. I like Mikael but at the same time I don‘t. I liked the Vanger portion - I was totally invested. I didn‘t give a rat‘s ass about the financial stuff. I‘m not a huge Lisbeth fan and I feel there‘s a trigger warning portion that was unnecessary. It added nothing to the plot in my opinion. It was slow to begin and slow to wrap that shit up. I also don‘t like Berger, nor do I trust her.

I devoured the series of three books. It took me a while to get into the first book. Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. And then I had to search and find the other 2 books. I was sad when I finished the third book. I wanted more.

Unpopular opinion. I really wasn't a big fan of this one. Dark, gritty crime is some of my favorite writing, but the writing in this one just bored me in parts. There would be pages of descriptions about graphic violence, but barely any description about Lisbeth's badass hacking skills. It didn't feel balanced to me.

This satisfies another #BookSpinBingo book and also marks one off my #ReadingEurope2020. @TheAromaofBooks @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB

Scochrane26 I loved this one after the first 50 pages or so, but I really couldn‘t put down the next 2. They are more concentrated on Lisbeth & her family history. She‘s def a badass in those 2. (edited) 2y

A really great deep-dive reading list of Nordic Noir in last Sunday's NYT Book Review. One of my goals this year is to expand the genres I read. Currently reading POC authored Sci-Fi/Fantasy (hello Octavia Butler and N.K. Jemisin!) The only Nordic Noir I've read is the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Any recommendations from fellow Littens from this list? https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/24/books/review/nordic-noir-guide.html

BarbaraTheBibliophage This for the heads up on this comprehensive list. I‘d like to try more of these too. I‘ve only read the Larssons, A Nearly Normal Family (which I liked) and (edited) 2y
charl08 Love Miss Smilla (she gets a 'Miss' in the UK title). I've loved the most recent Antti Tuomainen and hated another. Arnaldur Indridason is amazing. Tursten is worth reading for a series that features a "normal" person who works for the police. And if you haven't tried Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo, I'd start there. Everything else stems from their Martin Beck. 2y
Andrew65 I‘ve enjoyed the Lars Kepler books, but they are quite dark and gritty. Not on TBR list but also enjoyed the Camilla Lackberg books. 2y

The book was even more amazing than the movie! Lisbeth is my new spirit animal. My heart broke throughout this book, but it absolutely shattered for her on the last page. I MUST read the next one!! I was quite surprised by the love story between Lisbeth and Mikael. I feel like the nuances of it all were a bit lost in the translation to film. Has anyone seen both versions? I liked the original and I‘m unsure of whether to watch the American one...

I tried to read this book; I got 50 pages in before I decided that I didn't really care. What I read was boring; the brunt of it delved into politics and economics, two subjects that do not interest me. I know this book is popular, so I may be in the minority who feels this way, but I just didn't get it. Sorry! 🌟

The majority of the story was good. Didn‘t love some of the side stories but I guess they made the story flow more 🤷🏻‍♀️
It was good and I‘ll continue with at least the trilogy. I didn‘t get much depth with the characters maybe that changes and grows with the series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
