I can't decide if I'll ever read this, partially because I can't decide which will be worse: liking it or hating it.

You absolutely nailed the problems with this book. Thank you. You saved me from spending any more time on it than I already have. I quoted and credited you in my review.

it's nice to see that I wasn't the only one who didn't like this book...it took FOREVER to read. That usually is the #1 sign that it's not doing it for me.

The novel brings to light what is so wrong with this world...that almost everyone is taking crazy pills and lives in someone else's bullshit. Why read a book if it so painful to finish unless you're getting paid to slog through it? That's what's wrong with this world, not Larsson's book.

Well said - wish I would have read your review before trying to write my own. You stated it perfectly and concisely!

I have put this book down due to long annoying back story and overly descriptive writing.

Thank you for putting my exact thoughts in writing and publishing them here. The book was not worth reading and full of cliches. I read it in Swedish, so the fault is by no means only the translator's. I simply cannot understand the renown and success of this book. -

Thanks for confirming that the Swedish version isn't that much different, Penina! Too bad!
