The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Anyone else reading the trilogy by Stieg Larsson?  I know I'm probably late on this but I just finished the first one and on to the next, the Girl who Palyed with Fire.  And I love it!  And even more excited by the fact that Daniel Craig will be playing Blomkvist in the movie!

My MIL gave me the book to read and I got about 20 pages into it and put it down. Its just not appealing to me. I wish I liked it.

I've read the first 2 book but I'm waiting for the third to come out in paperback. Word of warning, the first book (Dragon Tatoo) takes a WHILE to get going - like 100 pages. But if you can stick out the beginning, it'll be well worth it.


Kelly2bG - I felt the same and almost gave up on it too, but you should give it another try!

I've read the 1st book and really liked it.  I agree with the other posts that it doesn't really get interesting until your a little ways into it.

I couldn't put them down. Read all three. Amazing series. Wish he would have lived to write the others. heard he had ten manuscripts in the works. The second one was my favorite.

I started reading this a few weeks ago.  I am only a third of the way through with so much wedding responsibilities, I haven't found much time to read.  FI won't let me read in the bed. :(  He says the light keeps him awake.

Yes, i agree that the first 20 pages were tough to get through in the first book.  But really it is a great suspense triller, full of interesting characters, and well written.  I can totally see this as great movie but we shall see...

I saw the movie first, then I picked up the books. I just started reading the first one. The movie was good, but it took a LONG time to get started and figure out what was going on, and there were parts that I didn't know would be in it...and my god. I really enjoyed it, but some of it was SUPER shocking.

I read all three books and I loved them!! I don't read many thrillers, but these ones are brilliant! Very clever, I think. But I agree, the first 50 pages are a little... confusing. It's like: What is this book telling me?? But it gets so gripping later.


I want to watch the movies soonish.

yeah i heard the swedish version of the movie was awful.  and supposedly had to be edited first before distribution in the US because of the "shocking" scenes.  can't wait for the american version.

I have it, read about 60 pages and then got caught up in planning the wedding that I have to restart the book.  But I've heard amazing things about these books!!

Ok I'm a little slow on this too but the first chapter was awful! I know it supposedly gets better. Did anyone else find it hard to follow? Is it a lot of work to understand the plot? Sometimes my inattention doesn't let me see all the details/whole picture - just making sure I'll start to get it by the end?

the first 50 pages are a struggle and oddly enough, have very little to do with the overall plot of the book.  but it's worth getting through, cause the books are so good.
