Today I finished The Girl That Played With Fire and it was sooooo good. I actually liked it more than The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and for several reasons. First off, the book just flowed better. In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, it started slow and ended that way too. I realize some people may criticize me for saying that, and don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed it, but the mystery was solved a good 100 pages before the book actually ended. Not until the last three pages did I again get excited. That said, The Girl That Played With Fire was slow in places too, but was thrilling right up until the end. That's one of the best parts of a book for me. It leaves you wanting more. The other thing that made me like "fire" better, was that I already had a sense of Larsson's flow and wording. He's Swiss and they speak a little differently, so that was hard to get a grip on in the beginning. The Girl That Played With Fire was one of the best reads I've seen in a while. I highly recommend you go out and get it. Then stay up all night reading it, just like I did. : )
This afternoon I plan to wash my sheets, do a little painting project for a friend and then start The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest (third book in the Millennium Trilogy). Super thrilling, no? Well, I'm excited. Day 8 is chugging right along!
