¸ Män som hatar kvinnor å Download by ô Stieg Larsson I HATED this book I don t understand all of the good reviews that are coming in on it I hated the characters, the plot was thin ugh I can t believe I read the whole thing.
After having leaped onto the bandwagon with the rest of everyone, I feel a certain amount of pretentious indie pride saying that I wasn t as awed by this book as everyone else apparently was Which is not to say that the book wasn t enjoyable and exciting it just didn t knock my socks off whilst simultaneously blowing my mind and rocking my world that sounds like either some great song lyrics or a very complicated sexual maneuver Let s go with the first option So, the good stuff the main story a disgraced journalist is hired by a rich old man to write a book about said man s crazy rich family, while secretly working to discover truth behind the disappearance and supposed murder of the man s granddaughter Also in play is Lisbeth Salander, Alternate Cover Edition ISBNISBNAn International Publishing Sensation, Stieg Larsson S The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Combines Murder Mystery, Family Saga, Love Story, And Financial Intrigue Into One Satisfyingly Complex And Entertainingly Atmospheric NovelHarriet 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 Women are raised to routinely fear rape If you go at night, take a friend Check under the car and in your backseat before you get in I m just saying it s a good idea to know where the exits are I got you this whistle for your keychain, you know, just so you have it You were an hour later than I thought you d be We called the police Oh, that s pepper spray I keep it with me just in case I just make sure I get my keys out and check for other weapons if I m getting off work late Is this weird I live alone and I m going running, so if I don t call you by 11 15, call the police, okay A woman who fights back no, a woman who argues at all does so knowing it will probably make her a social pariah She s just one of those women who makes life helllike a Hillary Clinton type You re different you re not a ball buster like some girls You know that rape accusations ca Hey, kids, if you like books in which the only major descriptive moments happen during sexual torture scenes, where major characters lack motive, and where the red herringsstink this book s for you I may feel less strongly after a few days, but I am having a hard time believing this book has hit the best seller lists in multiple countries Rant containing Mild Spoilers Here are my complaints 1 The entire book sets you up to think that the alleged killing s were perpetrated by one orpeople for complicated reasons Spoiler They re not A murderer, at the climax, reveals, I like killing people That s the motive That s it 2 The title character has her macabre past detailed at length The salient facts to the case how did she come into possession of her detective ing skills is left out A 85% Extraordinary NotesIt s a logical, captivating mystery where everything clicks into place It gives backwoods Sweden a Transylvania feel.
I re read this book by audio and even though the narrator was good, he didn t do a good job on Lisbeth s voice I wish that Noomi Rapace would have done her own voice That would have been awesome So, I have been a fan of this series for quite some time I have the movie trilogy box set of the books that are fan freaking tastic Although, now I have to switch from dvd to blu ray I also have a couple of different copies of the books Lisbeth Salander is just freaking awesome She s so bloody smart, I wish I was as smart as her and could be an awesome hacker like her too Lol I freaking loved when she got back at the b stard who raped her as well Wheewwwww, if only everyone could get that kind of revenge on thei
The original Swedish title of this book is Men Who Hate Women If you ask me, it suits this story much better than catchier but less relevant The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, because it is in fact about men doing all kinds of horrid things to women So here is the first warning to you, if you don t handle violence against women and children well, skip this novel It s hard to give a short synopsis of the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starts off as an investigation of a 40 year old disappearance of a teenage heiress, but gradually morphs into a tale of serial murder and corporate trickery spanning several continents and later takes in complicated international financial fraud and the buried evil past of a wealthy Swedish industrial family.
I found this book extremely engaging and full of action and came to regret many times that I I ve heard and read many complaints about Stieg Larsson s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 1 It s misogynistic 2 It s packed with clich.
3 It s too convoluted 4 It s too disturbing.
5 Lisbeth wasn t autistic enough or was foolishly autistic.

7 Too Two many plots 8 Too hard on Leviticus I will answer these in a moment, but first I must declare that I am an unrepentant fan of this book This is one of the rare times when I long for goodreads to have half grades, because I would love to give this 4.
5 I can t give it a full 5, though, because I sense Mr Larsson s series is going to grow in his last two books And nowback to the top eight complaints 1 Perhaps, but how can a book whose original Swedish title is Men Who Hate Women avoid misogyny It can t But at least t
