Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments woah~ oo nga pala. sige start ako later, sayang konti na lang mtatapos ko na ung 1Q84~~


Maria (mariasm) | 2233 comments Lisbeth is a very complex character :) i hope you like her!

don't rush reading this. it's a lot to take in, esp with the scandal/horror that is the core of the story.

the Swedish movie was really good, close to the book sya actually.

;)

message 14: by jzhunagev (new) - added it

jzhunagev | 3323 comments It's a murder-mystery.

I don't want to spoil anything, but as is expected from some books in the genre, there are certain scenes that well may left you... horrified. Haha! :D

Just teasing...

Promise, maganda 'to!

At para makadagdag sa kaangasan, while reading this one during the holiday the previous year I listened to Trent Rezonr and Karen O's cover for Led Zeppelin's The Immigrnat, which was the OST of the Hollywood/Fincher adaptation.

My warm regards and happy reading!

Yeah \m/


Maria (mariasm) | 2233 comments rock on! LOL

it was jzhun who recommended this to me.

Eli, how old are you ba? hehe, i loved murder-mystery books kaya swak na swak sa lasa ko ito. i'm not sure if you'll have nightmares pero siguro sa mga conservative na girls, kagula-gulantang ang mga pangyayari dito. Go lang sa pagbabasa!

LS: ay siraulo c Lisbeth compared kay Katniss. but i crave Lisbeth's madness! Astig tlg.


message 16: by Eli (new) - added it

Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments salamat sa mga teasers/spoilers niyo, oo, i've decided, umaga ko lang siya pwede basahin. and 4 chapter a day is okay~ so far enjoying it~ totoo ba, patay na author nito?

and I'm 20 y/o. IKR, you can laugh at me, pero madali lang tlaga ako mgka-nightmares. hindi ako matatakutin, talagang napapanaginipan ko lang ung mga binabasa ko...

and yeah so far, I think lisbeth is an interesting girl~ Katniss is fierce but still a child for me, the character of Lisbeth looks promising though.


message 17: by Jill (new) - rated it 5 stars

What Lisbeth did in the novel is probable, specially now that we rely so much with computers and the internet to the ease with which we are living.

Technology, my dear Dr Watson, is a two-bladed sword.

Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments bad sya bad sya bad sya. :(

Po | 1193 comments May pagka Rochester din pala itong si Blomkvist hahaha! dapat tinanggihan niya si Lisbeth kasi nga bata siya right so parang tatay na niya iyon hahaha!...magka-iba ng story iyong kay Daniel Craig at swedish version


message 27: by Eli (new) - added it

Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments really? Daniel Craig na version ang meron ako~ I'll try to find a swedish version din :( Ang problema ko kay Mikael hindi sya marunong tumanggi sa mga girls. Wala siyang age preference haha. Pati ba naman kay Cecilia.

@John, unoriginal na Kano? haha. ang tawag nila dun democracy~ karapatan nilang manggaya. xD

message 30: by Mirvan (new)

Mirvan  Ereon (mirvanereon) Wow guys sagutin nyo ko hahaha.... book or ebook... exception na si LS dahil audiobook xa wahahaha =P


☼~Marian~☼ (MGDC) | 242 comments Pasawsaw...I loved this book series. Though, its financial journalism part bored me to a deep snore...But the rest is all action-packed.
Its Swedish film adaptation is so like how I imagined Lisbeth Salander. I haven't watched its hollywood version though. Can anyone compare the 2 versions?


message 32: by Eli (new) - added it

Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments kung may reader ka(for sure you have one, I guess), ebook na lang John~ :D

@ate Marian, I'll compare the two versions kapag natapos ko na pareho panuorin. :D

Ate LS, tingin ko di sila bagay, layo ng age gap. :(


message 33: by Mirvan (new)

Mirvan  Ereon (mirvanereon) Thanks ah.. gano ba kakapal yung book? Kasi may nagbebenta ng ebook nung tatlo 25 pesos autoload lang ang bayad grabeh ang nakawan noh!!!!!!


message 34: by Eli (new) - added it

Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments hmmm, sakto lang. less than 470 pages.
NAKAWAN talaga? haha.


Maria (mariasm) | 2233 comments Po: grabe, pati dito my bahid ng Jane Eyre ang comments!

LS: Sabay ko sa Book 2 read-along :)

Though I deeply admire David Fincher, his version of Larsson's novel just deviated too far to its original source, but then again that's just me.

If you value your time, just stick to the Swedish film version. Compact ang direction at tight ang screenplay. Noomi Rapace is the best Lisbeth Salander bar none! :)


message 37: by Eli (new) - added it

Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments @Ate LS, ako na ang mas attracted sa boys na mas bata sa akin. XDD


☼~Marian~☼ (MGDC) | 242 comments LS: Hi! Is it ok if Imma poke through your discussion? I missed this. I read this a year ago and am looking forward to refresh..hehe..Too bad hindi ko mareread, hiniram kse yung books ko.

Jzhun: Yeah! Noomi played it sooo well. I sometimes imagine myself as Lisbeth.

Btw, Lisbeth has Asperger's Syndrome, right?

Blomkvist & Salander age gap. I think this is acceptable in western. Though it made me flinch a bit. It would have been ok if Blomkvist is as goodlooking as George Clooney. lol..


message 39: by jzhunagev (new) - added it

jzhunagev | 3323 comments Marian wrote: "Btw, Lisbeth has Asperger's Syndrome, right?"

Yes! Actually, according to some noted Sherlock Holmes scholars / critics, the Great Detective was also afflicted with that based from his actions in the Canon.

And, since I've already mentioned it and delving further in the subject, I think there's some bit of parallelism with Blomkvist-Salander tandem to the Holmes-Watson duo.

Wala lang. I just realized this when I'm reading Conan-Doyle's novels and stories. Though Larsson, of course, had a modern take on the plot device.

Galing, no! :)

[Sorry, ang dami kong Sherlock Holmes insertions/digressions sa thread na 'to. Haha! :D]


message 40: by Mirvan (new)

Mirvan  Ereon (mirvanereon) Nyak... almost 500 pages na pala?? book n lng cguro ako.... nakakatamad yun basahin pag ebook... =P


Maria (mariasm) | 2233 comments OMG book 2 na agad?!!! kala ko a week after pa. LOL

Eli: at malandi ka din pala, nyahahaha! I didn't mind the May-December affair, what i did mind though is Blomkvist and Lisbeth is not on the same page. i mean, hnd emotionally invested c Blomkvist db?

jzhunagev | 3323 comments Maria wrote: "i mean, hnd emotionally invested c Blomkvist db?"

Hindi talaga. But sa part ni Lisbeth, oo.
Actually, when she realized it, the feeling of loving one other person other than her mother is a strange emotion for her.

Natatandaan niyo yong last scene sa book, that was her first heart break. Haha! :D I feel for her! And of course, Lisbeth being Lisbeth, she responded to that situation only with anger because it's one of the defense mechanisms she has.

Ang ganda no? Ang complex ng character niya. :)


Maria (mariasm) | 2233 comments Tama!

Just when she accepted that she can love pala, hnd pala the same ang feelings ng lolo mo. heartbreak kung heartbreak kasi ang tagal nyang nilabanan ung feelings nya, tapos mauuwi din sa wala. :)


message 44: by jzhunagev (new) - added it

jzhunagev | 3323 comments After Jane Eyre let's discuss this.

Wala lang. Gagawan ko kasi ng review next week, I just want to know what are your opinions about the book. :)


message 45: by Eli (new) - added it

Eli (FireMinus) | 51 comments Ate Maria: haha landi agad, hindi ba pwedeng umiibig lang xD

Actually ngaung nasa book 2 na ko, iniisip ko nga kung wala nga bang nararamdaman si Blomkvist para kay Salander.

Pero napaka-ladies man kasi ni Mikael, kung sino-sino na lang. -_- At eto namang si Lisbeth, hindi un ang ine-expect kong gagawin niya sa ending, dapat hinagis niya ung gift sa face ni Berger o kaya pinambasag niya ng kotse ni Berger. Pero, wala eh, ganun siya masaktan. Kinimkim na lang.


message 46: by Maria Ella (new)

Maria Ella (mariaellabetos) | 1117 comments makikisabat: WALA KAYONG READING PLAN?! :p nakakatuwa kayo. ahahahah. :D

@Eli ganun daw talaga kapag mahal mo ang isang tao hindi mo siya kaya saktan kahit galit ka na...it only means mahal ni Lisbeth si Blomkvist. Ikaw ba magagawa mong saktan ang mahal mo?...nagtatanong lang...


message 50: by Po (new)

Po | 1193 comments Book 2 na din ako grabe! ganda nito may love triangle na pla si Lisbeth kay Blomkvist!...sampalan eto i-tech!...

@Maria kamusta ang Phil. Volcanos natin? hahaha,,,
