The plotline is original in a lot of ways and there are a good many twists that you don’t see coming towards the end but I don’t know, maybe it was because of all the hype I was expecting something more but I just don’t think its the brilliant, astounding piece of work that its being made out to be.
The character of Lisbeth is so original and interesting that any chapters which contain her are definitely the highlights of the whole book!
Anyway to sum it up I think it’s a very good thriller, maybe a cut above most out there at the moment but nothing to get too excited about. Lets all calm down a notch!!
