I used to be a constant reader. When I was young I walked to the library and spent hours searching out books. Sometime in my early thirties I stopped reading. Several of my blog friends are promote reading and have inspired me to reacquaint myself with the written story.
I didn't really know about this book until I heard they had made a movie of it. We don't go to the theatre much so I decided to buy the book. I usually like books better than the movie version anyway.
For me this book was really hard to get involved in. I think at about page 60 or so I wanted to know where the tale was going. But things happen and I put it down for a few days. When I started reading again it was hard to remember what I had already read. The last week of pre-election coverage sent me back to the book. I really did want to know how it was going to end. I have to say, I really didn't see the end coming. It was more of ahh, haaa that OH WOW though.
The movie was rated 1-1/2 stars, a sure tell to me that I don't want to go. I can see why...not much to work with here for a movie.
Since The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo was published, there are been a slew of "Girl" books hit the market.
If you read, or saw the movie The Girl On The Train, I'd love to know what you thought of either of them.
In the mean time, I'm going to read "Somebody I Used To Know" by David Bell.
