Alison G. (agriff22) | 540 comments I'm planning on reading that book soon. It wasn't good?? Was it the new author? I just want some input before I read it.

It wasn't good at all. I'm not sure if it was poorly translated but it was poorly written and he sucked the spunk and life out of Lisbeth. I just couldn't bring myself to keep reading it. I realize that is a bit harsh but very honest and spoke with two others who felt the same way, one had finished it and said it wasn't worth it.
