Overview

The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye (Millennium Series #5) by David Lagercrantz

From the author of the #1 international best seller The Girl in the Spider's Web: the new book in the Millennium series, which began with Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo, the brilliant hacker, the obstinate outsider, the volatile seeker of justice for herself and others—even she has never been able to uncover the most telling facts of her traumatic childhood, the secrets that might finally, fully explain her to herself. Now, when she sees a chance to uncover them once and for all, she enlists the help of Mikael Blomkvist, the editor of the muckraking, investigative journal Millennium. And she will let nothing stop her—not the anti-Muslim gang she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the deadly reach from inside the Russian mafia of her long-lost twin sister, Camilla; and not the people who will do anything to keep buried knowledge of a sinister pseudoscientific experiment known only as The Registry. Once again, Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, together, are the fierce heart of a thrilling full-tilt novel that takes on some of the most insidious problems facing the world at this very moment.

The book was not even close to the style, writing and flow of the orginal author. The concept was OK but the book lacked in so many ways . Not a good way to keep the charactor alive.

I simply couldn't put this book down. I bought it on a Tuesday and finished it Saturday. Would have finished sooner, except I had to work, cook/eat, sleep, errands, etc. Really hope they make a movie out of this book. Full of interesting surprises.

Sometimes I got mixed up - the story would skip around a bit but it all came together

The author's unsophisticated and elementary school level writing made this book a disappointment. The story and characters were both under deveoped. Lisbeth wasn't a main character and her dialog was mostly unrecognizable from Stieg's Lisbeth. Although the story had potential, it ended up being disjointed and uninteresting. I'm sad to say goodbye to Lisbeth, one of my favorite characters ever, as this will likely be the last of the Millenium books I read.

I enjoyed this book as much as the rest in the series, which I've reread many times, but I feel the author may have rushed the ending. Still, I will wait for the next book because I think we haven't seen the last of Lisbeth.

Excellent

Took me forever to read, and I devoured the first three. I believe it’s because of the hopping around and short chapters. Disjointed and frustrating at times. Characters hold up - thankfully - but at points I stopped caring what happened to the twins. When I forced myself to finish, I was grateful that I was over.

Vapid, over-explained, out of character. A huge disappointment.

I enjoyed this book very much. Write more on Lisbeth.

I enjoyed the story, and wasn’t disappointed by the ending. However, the author used a phrase the jarred me every time I encountered it. One can “get hold of ....”. However, one cannot “get ahold of ....” nor can they “get a hold of....”. This annoyed me no end, the person responsible for passing the book for publication needs to do a better read. And I need to lighten up..just saying.

After Steig’s passing, I’d always heard there are 2 more books. Now, at the end of this 5th book, I hope they find a way to continue this series and its great characters I’ve grown to love. I had very little intention to, but I read this in 2-3 days.

Ever since I read the first book, I’ve been hooked on the characters in these stories. I love it when the underdog wins and the way the story is told, you don’t always know if he/she will win. I enjoyed it very much.

I found this one in the series difficult to follow with so many characters to keep track of.

I enjoyed rekindling with the familiar characters through the first half of the book but then all became tepid. This author is a good writer but I don't think he could resuscitate the original characters.

I thought that The girl in the spider's Web was an amazing sequel to the series. This one was even better! Can't wait for the next one!!!

I can feel the authors struggle of trying to be true to the origional books, but yet try to make these characters his own. It was a good read, but as stated in previous comments, Lisbeth is not the main character in this novel. Nor is she up to her usual 'Salandar self' being bold and a step ahead of everyone. Overall, a good read but definitely not to Larsen's standards in my opinion.

Lisbeth Salander remains completely gripping in the hands of Lagercrantz.

No one would buy this book were it not for the first 3. There's no subtlety and no character building. The only thing it has are the names and histories of the main characters, which is bitter sweet as we all long for more of the first trilogy. The characters are puddle-deep and the plot line has a straight line trajectory. I still like to read of those characters though, even in a book like this. Don't expect anything here except some familiar names and places to remind you of what we got in those first books and how great they were.

Salander is the star of the series. Sadly she's not in this edition. So what's left? A bore. Skip it.
