Fan girl Friday

April 20, 2012 | Fan Girl Friday

Watched the movie the other night, which reminded me about the books. I read the entire trilogy with mixed feelings. The writing and/or translation isn’t elegant prose. The hero is a total Gary Stu construct. Most of the cast is unlikable.

Amid a overly complicated plot, a mishmash of conspiracy and revenge, Lisbeth Salander connected with me like a laser, with so much intensity and brilliance I paused regularly to marvel the same author who was responsible for the rest of the lackluster cast also created such a compelling, complex heroine.

Have you read anything that made you both groan and cheer?

    I guess one day I should at least give them a try! I know some people who tried them, with mixed results… I’m always very wary of things with this much hype!

    Totally with you on wariness of the mega hits. :lol: The stories I love best are seldom the ones taking the literary world by storm.
