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!

    My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.
