The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) - Stieg Larsson Start by pushing a large bolder up hill, until you are just about to decide that you’ve had all this fun you can stand, the apex of the hill is finally reached, and gravity assumes its traditional role. Now the journey becomes much easier, and at times is very exciting. However, eventually the terrain flattens, and although you are not having to push up hill anymore, there is clearly more work ahead. While there are moments of interest, and even a few thrills, monotony soon sets in, and you find your thought drifting to the contents of the DVR. Finally the downhill grade becomes steeper, and once again the ride quickens your pulse. Now things get good. The bad guy falls for the trap, the good guy gets vindicated and the girl, the gets a healed heart and the finish line of happily ever after grows on the horizon. Ultimately this adventure of hard work, suspense and is overshadowed by tragedy and the disappointment of unrequited love. That’s sort of what it was like reading Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Maybe I’ve just been spoiled by Tom Clancy, Stephen King and John Grisham.The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
