Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson

I have read the three books which I enjoyed greatly. I realize it may not be for everyone and at the same time I hope people will enjoy reading them. I was so enthralled with it that I had a hard time to put the books down. I remember when I read the first book I did it thru a weekend. A friend of mine recommended the book and I was hook. He knew how to move his characters and new how to keep your attention.

I love the challenge of trying to figure out where the author is going with the story. At each step there was another twist so I could not put my finger on the answer easily. I wanted to know where it was going to take me in the next chapter. For me the story was fluid and consistent which I find important. At the same time I learned some history about his country and how their laws differ from ours.

The intensity was amazing and I saw the three movies and did it just in many ways. I was hoping there would of been more of the story however I think the movies would have been quite long.

It is sad that he has passed away. We will never know what else he would of produced or if the two main characters Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander would have work together again. There has been comment about a fourth book however I am not sure if the opportunity will ever come for us to read. All we can do is wait and see.

It sure is fun to read. Enjoy yourselves.

Some books from Patricia Cornwell

I discovered this author by chance in 1996. I was at the library looking for a book to read.

The first book I read by Patricia Cornwell was “From Potter’s Field. I did so in a day and a half. That is how much I loved the book. I wanted to know where it went and how it would end. I was able to imagine each places and was trying to figure it out with each clue. It was challenging. I did not find the answer until the end.

Afterward I went to the library so I could read her other books. As I read the second book which was Body of Evidence I felt like I was going backward. I did not like that because it raised more question in me. So one night I sat down and look at the list of books and went by the year she wrote them. What has been interesting is the growth of the characters through out all her books.

What I like about her writing is the way she can pick my curiosity, wonder where she will go with the characters and have awe about some of them like Pete Marino. Matter of fact I was shock by his conduct and at the same time I understand. I am enjoying readingĀ  her books and intend to keep going.

I do have a great collection now that I have bought them all. I am looking forward to Red Mist that is coming out Dec 6. I have link her website so you can check her books out if anyone feels like it.

Have a great evening and great reading.
