Amazing!. After getting through the beginning where it mostly discussed the Wenerstöm affair, the novel really picks up and it's nearly impossible to put down! Great book!

My favoritw. I’ve read the series of books several times over. I’ll never stop loving them, the first one the most!!

Ehh. 1st half boring Middle had me on the edge of my seat Ending sucked

Great read. Great read

Trilogy. I could not put the first one down, and the second, and the third. Too bad the author had passed on. Outstanding plots, marvelous storyteller.

Fantastic. Great book. I couldn't put it down.

Worst Book I've Ever Read. period. Hands down. I can only think that people like it because of trends & hype. Just the worst, most unreadable crud ever.

Really excellent. I’m so surprised by the amount of people saying they couldn’t get through’s such an amazing read and really quite simple to get through if you have high school level intellect. Can’t wait to read the next one! Finished the book in three days.

Addicting. Less than 30 days, already done with book 5. Had the book a while and I guess timing was a factor for getting started. Haven’t been sucked in since Patricia Cornwell and John Sanford.

Girl with the dragon tattoo. Without a doubt one of the best whodunits I've ever read. The writing was great. As with most good reads, you have give it a chance to ferment before it becomes hard to put down.

It has lived up to it's hype.. I am hooked. I had to read the book before watching the movie and now I'm obsessed - with the series, both American and Swedish versions. I'm slightly tempted to learn Swedish to read the original copy. I just wonder why they changed the title. It makes more sense... Regardless, bravo. I wish Larsson were still alive. I would love to learn his process.

Great book. I little slow at the beginning but at some point you won't be able to stop reading!

Waste of time!. This poor excuse for a book was written in an incredibly bland style. I suffered through the elementary sentences hoping to appreciate the plot, however, the story line was anticlimactic and the characters were completely unlikeable. Also, the ending was by far the worst ending to a book I could possibly imagine.

Superb. Very enjoyable

The girl with the Dragon Tatoo. What a warm but also very interesting book to read. I would have liked the ending to be different, but then that is the way these stories always end. It would be nice to see a follow up story on this with the ending be to the young lady who helped him be successful.

Girl with dragon tattoo. Excellent! Drew me in although at first I thought that I was not going to enjoy it so much.

Great book.. Loved the movie and the book was even better. Can’t wait to read the next one.

Men who hate Women. I had the opportunity to read this book in english and spanish, the movies fall short to recreate the atmosphre and the amazing characters.

Great. This was such a great book I've read it 3 times and Love it every time. Far more greater than the movie.

Great read!. Really great read - keeps you on your toes until the end! Now starting The girl who played with fire

Overrated In My Opinion. The first part of this book was horrible. I almost stopped reading it. I stuck with it and found the middle to be entertaining. But, just as the book climaxed, the wheels came off and the storyline resolved with a disappointing thud. I can’t recommend this book.

Great book!. Awesome read.

Holy cow. Intense book. Kind of complex and difficult to get into but definitely worth it to stick to it till the end

Excellent!. Great read!

One of the best fiction of 2011. Page turner, great book with great details and characters... No way of getting bored. Couldnt drop off my hands really! The movie is also awesome if not totally the same as the book itself.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I bought this book after renting the movie and cutting it half way for it has some very disturbing parts in the movie. I read the book in about 3-4 days. I got through the first couple chapters pretty quickly. I was somewhat mistaken with the "The Girl's" role in the book. The book is very detailed and it helps create a very clear imaginary visual of the setting. I was little dissapointed that "The Girl" and the main character do not come across each other until very far into the book. What I really loved was the solution to the plot. It was great I never expected that twist to occur because it is very suspenseful and does not give the reader many hints of what to expect next. The book was very well-written and very detailed also, the author had the story well mapped out. This book was an excellent read. I would reccomend to ages 13 and up. It does refer to sexual situations very often in the book and has its occasional curse words. If you have considered reading this book, stop considering and read it. The book is superb and the sequels are impeccable reads. I would reccomend to all the readers out there who are ready to be up all night to read. -The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Amazing. One of the best thrillers ever!

Love it!. The only gripe I had with this book is that it starts off VERY SLOW. It took me months to get through the first few hundred pages. By that time I didn't remember what happened in those pages and didn't need to in order to get the rest of the story. Once you get past that, it's a great read. The characters are very deep and you really feel like you know them. I'm excited to finish this trilogy!

Great series. Can’t put it down. Love the entire series

Best book in Years. Loved the book and loved the original screen play!

GWTDT. A must-read!!!! Amazing characters and a story that will not let you put the book down!

Slow Starter. This book was a slow starter for me. I would read a number of pages and put it away because it just didn’t capture my interest. After knee replacement surgery I, AGAIN, began reading and this time things fell in place and I couldn’t put it down! I will have to read the next in the series.

Great read!!!. The book was awesome! Slow In the beginning but definitely picks up and leaves you on the edge of your seat!

Excellent. Great read!

Strong female. I think the book made Salander a weaker female than the swedish movie, or is it the other way around? I like the movie character best! (haven't seen the other version)

Just Eh!. Pretty slow at points. Definitely a book to get from the library and save a few $.

Great Series. These books are great, thoroughly enjoyed reading this book

Roller Coaster - including the waiting line. In spite of lengthy passages of pretty dry exposition and maybe some structure with little purpose, this is a ride you have to take through the Swedish landscape. The peaks and drops are thrilling, and the unknown outcomes of the tunnels and ascensions are gripping.

Excellent Story. I would totally do Lisbeth! :)

Shockingly poor compared with the hype. Usually for me the screenplay adaptation of a book doesn't live up to the nuance of its original novel. In this case, I found a massive exception. The movie is miles better than this boring, purposeless writing. No narrative flow, flat storytelling, predictable characters. Entire chapters of pointless plot, and backstory that goes nowhere and adds nothing. I'm well and truly shocked and only finished the book to fully realize just how drastically different it feels from either film version. This could have been consolidated and had 25% removed. The changes made in the film version moved the story along so much better. I have a new appreciation for adaptive screenwriters; someone has made stein larssons story much better. Save yourself some disappointment and just watch the movie. Either one, Swedish or American version, just don't read the book.

Page turner. Good book, keeps you engaged.

Stupid people. I am thirteen years old and I was able to get through the start just fine. Everyone is saying that it was really slow but I found the book incredibly fast and finished the series in a few weeks. If a thirteen year old with such a 'low attention span' as all us teenagers have is able to get through the beginning, I'm sure some fully grown adults with lots of time on their hands can do it too.

Dragon tattoo review. Not a feel good read. Another mystery novel a novice could write. Skip it

Great book!. First book I have ever been able to read cover to cover!

By Mid-Point, Hard To Stop Reading. [no spoilers] The late author, Stieg Larsson, did an amazing job giving readers two main protagonists who had unique depth & illustrious backgrounds. Then, he managed to naturally get these two characters to work together to solve a realistic-complexed mystery, was all very impressive! I normally read to wind down for the night, so on average, 10-25 pages before going to bed. After I reached close to the middle of this book, I found myself reading the final 450 pages in a handful of hours.

relrel310. Very interesting and amusing book. If you are into those stygian mystery novels, this is the book for you. I consider it the best out of the trilogy, but what do I know.

Fantastic!. The books is by far better than the movie, filling in the blanks. Truly a fantastic read! Impossible to put the book down! Anticipating book 2 to be just as thrilling!

👍🏻. Awesome

Amazing!. I could not put this book down!

A really interesting and good read. This book is very smart and really grabs you and I found myself not wanting to put it down, really enjoyed the writing style. I would defiantly recommend this book.
