Megan Hey I see that your reading the girl with the dragon tattoo. I was just wondering what you thought of it so far? I am planning on reading it sometime, hopefully.

Thanks,
Megan


Shannon (Giraffe Days) I've finished and am about to tackle my review - but the short version is that I liked it very much!

Nan This was one of my favorite novels that I read this year. Thanks for such an excellent review!

Jeffrey Not to give anything away but didn't you think the ending was fairly predictable in what happens to Lisbeth and her love for Blomkvist?

I have the second book out of the library now.


Shannon (Giraffe Days) Jeffrey, it did lead up to it yes, but do you mean the very very ending when she calls herself a twit, or just her falling in love? I didn't mind it, anyway. I don't think she's half as abnormal as she thinks she is - because she's been convinced of it by other people all her life. So she was bound to fall in love one day and Blomkvist ... fits. I didn't find it predictable myself only because, for once, I wasn't really thinking about the romance side of the story! Funny that.

Jeffrey I mean both the falling in love and seeing him with the other person -- Blomkvist nature. I thought your review telling about the alternate name fo the book by the way was very revealing.


Shannon (Giraffe Days) I see what you mean. She already knew his nature though didn't she. Well, I quite liked the way it ended - and they have two more books to sort themselves out with right? I honestly didn't predict it as an ending but it worked neatly.

I learnt yesterday that the English title for the third book is "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest", which is rather clunky and obvious but better than a direct translation of the original, which would be "The Castle in the Cloud that got Blown Up" - hilarious isn't it?!

Jeffrey That is funny.
