really liked it

I wanted to read this when it first came out but I knew it was too heavy a read for me at the time.

I'm glad I was in a chilled out enough mood to pick this up finally. Not a relaxing read but definitely had me in the "I don't want to do squat but read" frame of mind. It was a very heavy read and I feel like Larsson did a really good job with the details of the issues (could do without the some of the graphic details but that is where I have learned to skim).

Writing wise, there were a lot of things that irked me (brand name plugs, URLs to programs). The characters and story though kept me going.

This is one I'd say pick it up at the library, it's not one of those books that is for everyone. Saying that, I do think everyone should read it if just for what Larsson has to say on the issues of sexual violence as well as mental health.
