I am still working through it, slowly. I am not in a hurry because I saw the movie 3x.
I really am appreciating the backstories we're getting. Lisbeth is a great character.

I haven't seen the movie.

It was big and messy and dark. Not for everyone.
Daniel Craig was great, as usual. Rooney Mara, as Lisbeth, was fantastic. The infamous scene with her sponsor -- which I haven't reached in the book, unless I somehow glossed over it -- is disturbing on a lot of levels (which means it was really well done).

I thought it was a good book. It did take me a while to read it, though. I'm a notoriously slow reader anyway and this book moved slower to me than most others. It didn't grab me like a Michael Connelly book does.
I wanted to read it to see what all the interest in it was. And while I thought it was good, I don't know that it lived up to the hype.

I read this one, thought it was a bit slow, but just interesting enough to read the next one too. I found the second one a lot more gripping. Don't know if it's because the story moved along quicker or if I had just gotten used to the style, characters, etc. by then. Anyway, the second one left me dying to read the third one, so hang in there everyone!
