Book Review: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo & Cum Laude

For those of you with entirely too much time on your hands; you will know that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the 25th book I have read this year. Both an item on the 29 Before 30 list and a 2010 goal. You will also know that Cum Laude is just me being overachiever and surpassing the goal.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

For the first third of the book I was wondering what all the rage was about. I couldn't figure out why this was so special; then it was as though the candle had been lit. The book moved at a glorious pace and I was totally engrossed in the storyline. Then it ended and I didn't like the end but it made me remember...that's life, not a storybook.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I'm not entirely sure how this ended up on my "to read" list but it has...And well, it was okay. It's more of a teen book and my 16 year old self would have loved it. My 29 year old self just kept thinking of the things I could have/should have/would have done if only I were to go back to college again.

Its a skip.

  1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was good. I thought some of it was a little too disturbing for my taste. I finished the Girl Who Played With Fire last night, and it was better! I loved it! Thanks for the book reviews. I love reading and very much appreciate them!
