Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Most Recently Read Book:

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

By Stieg Larsson

Another book club book successfully finished!  I almost doubted myself for a second there but then I read every second of downtime we had this weekend and I finished it up.  This book was really hard to get into, there was lots of weird information at the beginning that was kind of hard to follow...and then it go easier to read and it was really good.  This book is a kind of CSI/Cold Case story...except the "investigators" aren't really official hard core cops or anything like that.  Overall, I really liked the book.  I have to say when they figure out who did the crime and what it was all about it was kind of hard to read because it was so brutal but I never would have guessed it.  Can't wait to see what all everyone at book club thinks!
