I have finally finished my first book off my 2011 Book List!! The very first book off the list I read also happened to be our January Book Club Book which was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.
Now I am sure most of you have heard the rave reviews about this book and the 2 others that followed it but if you haven't this book is supposed to be phenomenal. While I didn't hate this book I didn't love it either.
It took me forever to get into this book and I can't say that I ever really got into it. Granted it is a mystery novel so there is that part of me that was interested to finding out what happened but I never got that excited feeling. I never was anxious to read the book to find out the big answer, I was just anxious to finish it so I could start another book that I am hoping gets me really involved and excited.
This book is heavy on the verbiage which is why I feel it took so long for me to ge through it and there was a lot that could have been left out. But if you can see through that or if maybe you don't mind that then I would recommend that you give this book a chance. I can see why people like it so much, I just could never get to that point with it.
Overall grade is B.
