The Millennium Trilogy (Girl With the Dragon Tattoo)

I just finished reading the first book, and loved it. It's a little slow getting into, and Lisbeth bordered on being a Mary Sue at times. Just a kick-ass, Goth Mary Sue. I still got really engrossed in the book around chapter eight. Thoughts on the rest of the series?

Lisbeth really is an intriguing character. My sociology teacher said I reminded her of Lisbeth my senior year of high school, lol. Then again, I was pretty against talking to people or doing my schoolwork then. It probably wasn't a compliment.

I agree that Lisbeth can be a little sue-ish sometimes, but you will find throughout the series that she has many flaws. I've seen the American adaptation of the movie several times and I looooove it. Rooney Mara's performance was award winning.

You should definitely read the rest of the series, it really keeps you on the edge of your seat. c:

Now that I'm reading the second book, she seems a lot less Mary Sue-ish. Her flaws more than make up for her Sue characteristics, and yeah, while I wasn't the biggest fan of the English movie, Rooney Mara did an amazing job portraying Lisbeth.

And the second book's so good! I read a hundred pages in an hour. It's really engrossing.

Also, I like your username.

Yeah, I think so too. The second book is probably my favorite. It's really fast-paced. c:

Dark Horse just started publishing the series as a graphic novel.

Watch the American film version. Roony Mara is the greatest fairly young female actor of all time.

Oh, I did. Rooney Mara's brilliant. I love her, and she's beautiful.

Watch the Swedish one instead, it did it better and it did it first!

The other two books are excellent as well, and not quite as slow as the first--though the first is still my favorite! The others are definitely worth reading and really flesh out and finish the story. My only complaint was that some of the major events in the second two seem a little unrealistic to me, but not enough to ruin anything! You should definitely read them!
