The Millennium Trilogy: 3/5
Well, it took me much longer than I thought it would to finish up this trilogy. Why? I’m not so sure. Of course all the books were high up there in the review section of every bestseller list, but perhaps that led me to expect too much.
The first installment, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was, I’ll give it, a great weekend read. It’s easy to get through and that exotic ‘hacker’ element keeps it interesting…everyone finds that whole internet prowess seductive on some level; I know I sure would like to be a white hat!
The Girl Who Played With Fire, though interesting, wan’t as captivating. Though I read the whole thing through, this time it took me about a week – a sure sign that I was getting sick of Blomsky and his ‘player’ ways. Lisbeth was still fascinating, but Erica made me want to scream…very annoying.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest took about 2 months to finish throughout which I read several other books. I just couldn’t get into it. I’m not exactly sure why, but I do know that I wouldn’t have finished it at all if it weren’t part of a trilogy.
Anyway, since I’m reviewing these books as a group, 3/5 is the best I can do. First one was great, the last one was crap…the middle one was just annoying.
