Watching grass grow would be more interesting than this book., May 5, 2010
I can't imagine a more boring read than this book. I only stuck with it because it was highly recommended by someone with a college edumacation. While I am not among the most scholarly people on the planet, I do know what is a poor excuse for literature. And The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is just that.
Great title, mediocore, somewhat sick story., May 4, 2010
The title of this book is awesome, unfortunately for me, it was downhill from there. Its basically about a middle aged white guy who finds himself working with a young skinny girl that suddenly for no reason other then the author's own little fantasy, demands sex with him one night. From then on, this dynamic love duo of middle aged white guy and young skinny girl solve an old crime with lots of demented sex scenes and violence scattered about to keep things interesting. In all fairness, its probably a 3 star book, but given all the 5 star hype, it was a real disappointment and deserves a 1 star review.

Bought this at the recommendation of a friend who belongs to a book club. A reason why I am not in a book club...
Wow....what a boring book!, May 4, 2010
I only had a sample of the book sent to my Kindle and I couldn't even bring myself to finish it! I hate to think what the rest of the book is like. It is one of our book club choices, but I don't think I will be able to bring myself to read it. I think the only way I would read it would be if it was free! I wouldn't recommend this rubbish to anyone.
