All the books are very good reads. Also looking forward to the Dragon Tattoo movie coming out in December.
Is this the English language version? The Swedish language version with English subtitles is available on Netflix.
JiT "Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone's lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means that you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." ~Rick Warren
I had the book in my hands tonight (before I read your message) and put it back down. There was a giant stack of them at the checkout at B&N. I figured that was a "red flag" indicative of pulp fiction.
Sadly, the last two books I have read were "Blood Meridian" and "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time".
Blood Merdian was at its core a good story, but a difficult read. The Curious Incident book was excellent, about a autistic boy solving the murder of a poodle. :-)
I also read "The Road" and did not like it, but enjoyed "No Country for Old Men" (before it was considered for a movie, I am very snotty).
Since I read all day at work, it is hard to enjoy reading.
I will buy The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ASAP. Thanks for the heads up.
The Curious Incident book was excellent, about a autistic boy solving the murder of a poodle. :-)
I enjoyed The Curious Incident... and then read and really enjoyed Born on a Blue Day an autobiography written by Daniel Tammet, an amazing Autistic Savant.
He describes how he sees answers to math problems and how words each have a color that make languages easier to learn, etc. Very interesting.
guess i should comment on topic. saw the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and enjoyed it but thought it could have been shorter (could have shaved several minutes by cutting the closeups of the main male character). a friend read the book and said it had about 50 pages of unnecessary exposition.
