February Books

Yes, another delayed post. Anyway, I'm happy to announce that I've finished Stieg Larsson's trilogy in month. I was even able to squeeze in the movie adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. :)

Anyway, I loved all books. I was even sad when I learned that Larsson's passed away. Who'll finish his 4th book? As of this writing, it's still under debate.

I liked how he put in the mystery, technology and other scheme-y things in all three books. I fancy those scheme-y types of novels, especially in the movies. Not that I have an intention to rob a bank, but I really enjoy watching movies with robbing/hacking/security/etc plot...
Back to the book, although I loved all books, I found the first book really disturbing. When I watched the movie, I couldn't help but click on fast-forward when it came to Lisbeth Salander's rape scene. Ugh! The image is coming back again. :(

The plot as a whole was really exciting. Bringing you back and forth to the past and present. I just had a hard remembering all the names. There were a lot of characters involved! Especially in the first book where most belonged to the Vanger family.

I am no 'book reviewer'. I hope you weren't bored with my so-called book review. Hahaha!

Have you read any of Larsson's books? I suggest you try to read it now, it may be boring at first but believe me, it will get better. As you leaf another page, it just gets better. :)

Feel free to share your thoughts on the books. Would love to know how you felt after reading the books. :)
