Overview

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER
 
Lisbeth Salander is back with a vengeance.
 
The series that began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo continues as brilliant hacker Lisbeth Salander teams up with journalist Mikael Blomkvist to uncover the secrets of her childhood and to take revenge.
 
Lisbeth Salander—obstinate outsider, volatile seeker of justice for herself and others—seizes on a chance to unearth her mysterious past once and for all. And she will let nothing stop her—not the Islamists she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the prison gang leader who passes a death sentence on her; not the deadly reach 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 are the fierce heart of a thrilling full-tilt novel that takes on some of the world's most insidious problems.

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

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.

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.

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

Excellent

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.

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.

Hard to put down. Reread it to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

An interesting read. Just enough excitement and use of familiar characters to keep it flowing and make a statement about the prison system and psychological studies. Could have been more Lisbeth.

There were some gaps in the story telling and appeared to be rather rushed. There were a coupld of missing lines that made it hard to get the point of the section of text. I think another proof of the story is needed as it was rather rushed and not up to the usual quality of story telling

Enjoy this series. Lisbeth is a badass and a force to be reckoned with. Can’t wait to read “ Girl in the Spiders Web.

Just not the same. I was such a huge fan of Stieg Larsson that I was quite happy when David Lagercrantz decided to continue with the series, and bought both of his books without reading reviews first, but I just never got into it as much as I wanted, something was just missing. Were I completely lost myself in the first 3 books by Stieg, and hardly could but them down, I had a real hard time getting into this book, and even though it had some interesting parts its just not the same. It pains me to write it because I am sure David is a very talented Author, but when I need a Salander fix I will read Stieg's books instead.

Good read and in keeping with the original books.
