The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Book 1 of the Millennium Trilogy

Author: Stieg Larsson

Narrator: Reg Keeland, Martin Wenner

Synopsis

It’s about the disappearance forty years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden . . . and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

It’s about Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently at the wrong end of a libel case, hired to get to the bottom of Harriet’s disappearance . . . and about Lisbeth Salander, a twenty-four-year-old pierced and tattooed genius hacker possessed of the hard-earned wisdom of someone twice her age who assists Blomkvist with the investigation. This unlikely team discovers a vein of nearly unfathomable iniquity running through the Vanger family, astonishing corruption in the highest echelons of Swedish industrialism and an unexpected connection between themselves.

Contagiously exciting, it’s about society at its most hidden, and about the intimate lives of a brilliantly realized cast of characters, all of them forced to face the darker aspects of their world and of their own lives.

I must admit at first I wasn't too fond of the book. I had a hard time following the beginning because of my lack of understanding regarding the crazy world of professional finance. Due to my diligence and determination I kept reading and became completely addicted to the book. I couldn't put it down. Larsson is a fantastic writer and its saddens me that there won't be anymore writings from him. I would suggest this book to anyone!

I had been bombarded with the hype for this book. I was pleasantly surprised. The plot is deep, the characters are interesting and either likable or hate-ble. The only complaint I have is that the girl with the dragon tatoo isn't really the protagonist. That was an interesting twist all by itself. But it didn't stop there. The plot is thick and I found myself recommending the book to others. Enjoy.

Everyone has been talking about the girl with the dragon tattoo series. Even people who don't read books. I've seen people reading them on the bus and train, there is an american movie coming out, and there is another already made it was on netflix on demand btw..i couldnít watch the whole thing. So naturally, I wanted to read this. I finally got the book, and eagerly started. And it was Boring. There was such a super slow start, and all of the financial and securities talk, I felt like I was reading a textbook. If this book hadn't been hyped up so much, I would have just stopped reading. But it was, so I kept going. Finally, I got to the mystery, and I felt I should keep reading, just to find out what happened. More than half way through the book, it finally got good, but not very good. Even at the most shocking moments, it dragged. Maybe it was partly the translation? The story itself could have been interesting, but it was just written in an uninteresting way. I kind of grew to like the main characters, even though they did everything, even non dull things, in the most dull way. I can see how this would be a series. The mystery part was sad. But after they solved it, the book didnít end. It went on. For a while. I guess I didnít care about the back storyline much at all, the whole magazine financial etc bit. I havent decided if I'll read the other 2 books. I liked seeing how similar it was there to the US. It ended up being not bad, but I really really donít see why it became an international sensation..

I like the trilogy, and I listened to all three. Simon Vance is a GREAT narrator. I tried to read this book a few times in the past with no success. I found it slow to start and poorly written. If you can get past the countless cliches, and dont hold grudges over tidy plot fixes in other words if you suspend your disbelief enough you will enjoy listening.
