Tess and I decided to keep our non-Twilight book related interests to a simple book review rather than a full on book club. The one book we keep hearing sooo much about on Twitter is The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. This book is the beginning of a 3 part series (we love a good series!). Here is my overall review of the book:
This book is definitely not for the faint of heart. This is also not a book that you would want to read for fluff or mindless reading. If you want to read a book that has twists and turns and deals with serious plot matter, then this is the book for you. This book has a lot of graphic material and frankly a subject matter that may be too explicit and hard to swallow for some. That said, this is a great book! You easily identify with the characters and want to keep reading to see what happens to them. There are plot twists that you don't see coming and some that you do. The main character, Lisbeth Salander is a kick a** kind of girl and it is intriguing to follow her development throughout the story. Will she be the one to inspire Tess' next tattoo? Probably not.
Overall, I liked it enough to start reading book two in the series. Is it worth reading? Yes, if you can handle the subject matter.
