The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - First Take

Friday, July 31, 2009

Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is filled with pure, unadulterated evil.

That sounds trite to say, but in this case, it is true.

When I first commented I was going to read it, Patti told me the book was slow getting into and out of. She is correct. The first chapter, especially, is just backstory without any preparation for it. But from there, the story kicks in. Really it is two converging stories which come together.

The characters are powerful. The story is fully told in detail.

I'll have more to say tomorrow.
