Stieg Larsson

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

having been advised to skip the middle of the Girl Tattoo series i went into this 3rd book and very quickly was able to pick up the characters and flow.
It is demanding as it's deep,well written and deserves to be read with full concentration.
The plot unfolds beautifully and the ending is worth waiting for.
I look forward to more from Stieg

I wanted to get into this but found it hard to enjoy. Being from just outside the era i found myself unable to 'get' the very basic humour. I live in a time of complex comedy and this wasn't deep enough for my taste

A throughly enjoyable listen. As someone familiar with Paddington green and the TSG i can naturally pick faults in the a few factual inaccuracies. However the style of writing leant itself to easily being absorbed and i was able to overlook these faults. The book was very enjoyable, easy to pick up and a fast pace kept it interesting.

Enjoyable up to a point.

However I wonder if this threesome can go on much longer when the only substance appears to be the loveable baffoon (Pilkington) being the butt of all the jokes.

Although Sir Michael starts by saying this isn't just a book about the actors he has worked with you would struggle to find one actor from the past 40 years not mentioned in any of the numerous and sometimes tedious lists he acknowledges througout the book.

The biography i found very disjointed.

And to my surprise i felt a little empty at the end.

I admire this man as an actor and remain a fan. But this book was disappointing to me
