Review of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Stieg Larsson

Marital problems!

the book they were all holding was Les hommes qui n'aimaient pas les femmes"

The book has been sitting near my bed for a month now (a gift from my son) before I finally decided to pick it up. Actually my first encounter with the book was in the summer of 2007 at a beach in south of France. It could have been a perfect ad for the book... Imagine women and men tanning on their chaises longues, sipping water and concentrating on reading. Nothing strange about this image. However, the book they were all holding was Les hommes qui n'aimaient pas les femmes (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)! No exception. Even my best friend was reading it. I pointed it out to her and nonchalantly she said "I know" (kind of pointing out... isn't everyone in NY reading it as well?). Hell NO!

On my way back home, the airport bookstores had a unique display of the book that had an oddly and stern looking girl on the cover. I kept on debating whether I should buy the version in French or wait till I went back to NY... So, I waited for two and a half years! Big mistake! What was I thinking? When everyone tells you it is an excellent book, just read it. Amazing! After spending three sleepless nights reading it and fighting with my cranky husband over "going to bed early and lights off early" I managed to fly away from life and be completely immersed in the plot! RIP Stieg, you are a genius! Did he ever know that his book was going to have such an effect on people's emotions? I wonder...

Your name/signature: 

My name is Rachel Mayers from USA, I was married to my husband for three years before we moved to a new location, there he had a new job and before I knew what was happening he started keeping late night and ignoring me and our son. Finally early this year he filed for a divorce, I was diverstated and helpless I cried but he showed me hatred, he brought in his new secretary as his new wife until I meet this great spell caster in a forum discussion, prophet Jumama and I contacted him via mail and he assured me that within three days my husband will come begging. It was like magic, a miracle before me I saw Rowland on the third day he came begging for me to come back...To cut the story short, we are back together and I am so grateful to the Great One. I have found out that we don't have to cry over crashed marriages and relationships when a man like prophet Jumama is around the corner, you can contact him today on He is real and this is my testimony.

This is what happened to me. My niece-in-law gave me the books this past holiday in 2103. I had nobly marginally known about them. I was staying with family and kept reading and reading and reading. I could not put whichever book that I was reading down. It took mea about three days to read them and I loved them — all of them. Especially the ending of the third book. I was impressed with Lisbeth's accomplishments and her disdain for convention. It takes a special person to pull that off. I think about her as being real. I love reading, but have always been able to separate the characters as fiction. This time, I have not. She lives in my mind. i wonder how she is getting on and then I remember, oh, her creator is dead. It is a bit surreal.
