Book Club And Review

I Love to read and am always looking for a good book to read.  I used to read about a book a week.  Alas, I have not read a book in almost 2 months!!  I think that is an all time record for me.  I kept hearing a lot of good reviews on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson.  I have now picked up a copy and look forward to getting back into reading.  I hope you will join me!  Or feel free to leave book suggestions here.  I would love to hear what everyone is reading!


Wow, am I glad this is the book I chose after my spell away from reading.  Lisbeth Salander is an unforgettable character.  Her flaws make her believable and it is nice to get to know a character with such depth.  The small hints to her past leave me wondering what happened in her life to shape her into the person in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  The story had more twists and turns than the Pennsylvania backroads I grew up around.  An intelligent, well written story  loaded with intrigue and suspense.  I highly recommend it.  Be forewarned though, once you hit about page 73, you will have a very difficult time putting this book back down until you reach the end. 

The Girl Who Played With Fire Book Review:

I just finished the 2nd book in the series.  Now, in fairness, I had heard a lot of hype about this book.  I had several people even tell me that they thought this book was better than the 1st, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  Maybe my expectations were a little high.  Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoyed the book & would highly recommend it.  My biggest criticism would be that it seemed that it took to about page 169 before the main plot really took off.  It still a very good read & suspenseful.  I really enjoy the Lisbeth Salander character- although I can't help but think she made a very foolish, out of character move towards the end of the book.  I look forward to reading the last book in the series to see how the loose ends are tied up.  I say go out and read the series before the american version of the movies come out!!
