The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson Book Summary

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The thrilling first book in the Millenium series featuring Lisbeth Salander: “Combine the chilly Swedish backdrop and moody psychodrama of a Bergman movie with the grisly pyrotechnics of a serial-killer thriller, then add an angry punk heroine and a down-on-his-luck investigative journalist, and you have the ingredients of Stieg Larsson’s first novel” (The New York Times).

Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

The girl with the Dragon TatooWhat 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..Score: 5/5

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!.Score: 4/5

Great book!First book I have ever been able to read cover to cover!.Score: 5/5

Shockingly poor compared with the hypeUsually 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..Score: 2/5

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!.Score: 5/5

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..Score: 1/5

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!.Score: 5/5

Worst Book I've Ever ReadPeriod. Hands down. I can only think that people like it because of trends & hype. Just the worst, most unreadable crud ever..Score: 1/5

The Girl With The Dragon TattooI 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.Score: 5/5

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..Score: 5/5

Relrel310Very 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..Score: 5/5

Page turnerGood book, keeps you engaged..Score: 4/5

Roller Coaster - including the waiting lineIn 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..Score: 4/5

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..Score: 5/5

Slow StarterThis 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..Score: 5/5

Stupid peopleI 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..Score: 5/5
