I'm an avid reader and my choice of books is pretty eclectic. The heavier stuff I still read, but I love audible books for lighter stuff!

  • "Didn't disappoint"

    Overall

    Having recently finished listening to the first book in this series, 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', I held my breath and immediately dived back in with this, the second. I am glad to say that I found it at least as good as the first, and some of the unanswered questions about Lizbet Salander's past became clearer as the story unfolded. The characters were further developed, with, I am glad to say, Blomkvist allowed to grow more in the second part of the book. If you have read the first book, then you know to expect rather explicit descriptions of violence, and this book also contains similar material. Once again, impeccably read by Saul Reichlin, who has to be complimented on getting his tongue around all the Scandinavian place names with great dexterity.
    Some nice twists towards the end! I highly recommend.

    Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists are murdered and Salander's fingerprints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable behaviour makes her the official suspect, but no-one can find her. Salander may be an expert at staying out of sight, but she also has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.

  • "Excellent plot, superbly narrated..."

    Overall

    Very good indeed! The plot did well and truly thicken as the book progressed, and I found myself listening at every opportunity to find out 'whodunit'! At the end of the book I found myself in tears, such was my empathy with the characters.

    Sean Barrett reads superbly, as always. He is one of the few male readers who can 'do' women without making them sound either simpering or halfwitted. Much of this story is in the voice of an 18 year old female, and he does an impeccable job.

    If you like detective stories, this comes very highly recommended indeed!

    I took a chance on this book based on some of the reviews and am very glad I did. The plot was satisfyingly complicated with several blind alleys and misdirection that kept me guessing till the end.

    Galbraith's characterisation of his main protagonists is also very good. I found myself quickly sympathising with them and impatient to read more.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Glenister's reading, the characters' voices are distinct and his pacing is excellent.

    I'm really looking forward to the follow-up - I hope there's going to be one!

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales are rightly ranked among the seminal works of mystery and detective fiction. Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.

    Despite their investigative prowess, Scotland Yard's Chief Inspector Michael Sinclair, Lord Acton, and rookie detective Kathleen Doyle stir more than a few feathers at CID Headquarters when their relationship comes to light. But office politics quickly become trivial when a rash of underworld murders shatters London's normally austere façade. With a growing list of successfully solved cases to her name, the ever-dauntless Doyle shakes off the gossip and sets out to investigate the escalating turf war.
