The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

As you know my parents enjoyed this book and got the buzz going in our family this spring. Over the last few months many people in our circle have also spoken highly about this book and the other two in the trilogy; my brother and his wife, my husband's mother, Cousin Kate, my dearest Dooley, and all the women at my office have read this book. On our Labor Day road trip to Arkansas we finally bought the audio version of this book (via iTunes) and joined the club.

This book did not disappoint. It's a thriller, it's a page turner, its characters are as real as the people in my life, and I couldn't help but wonder what-will-happen-next! Stieg Larsson was an excellent writer.

However, I will not continue reading this series. The story was too dark and too disturbing for me to handle with ease. I stayed up until three o'clock in the morning Wednesday night to finish this book, and I was so distraught that I called in sick to work the next day. You should read it to see what you think...
