The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Finally picked this up. Off to a slow, but not uninteresting start. Around page 200 I got a bit fed-up with the huge amount of details and the never ending repetition of all the facts and family connections. I skimmed for a while until the action picked up again and from that point onwards I could not put it down anymore. It was great, full of suspense and I loved it. I wish the first 200 pages could have been like the rest of the book. Just stick with it, it's worth it!

NightNight by Elie Wiesel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Well written, very clear and stark prose. I found it a little hard to emphasize with the character, as his style was so sober, almost detached from the horiffic things happening to him.
