The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

16 Jan

So, here I sit avoiding doing the homework that I know I need to do.  I just don’t even want to get started on it.  I’m dreading it especially because technically the quiz I need to take, I’ve already taken.  I know that sounds like it doesn’t make any sense, but the instructor screwed up and I’m the one that gets to pay for it.  Actually me and one other schmuck who gets things done too early too.  I managed to finish quiz two for my Crime, Grime, and Fear class last Monday.  Thursday night I got a message from the instructor (a “doctor”) who said that the link was screwed up and that it was the wrong quiz.  For my hour of effort he’s giving me one whole point!  Can you believe the luck?  Yeah, I’m totally being sarcastic if you couldn’t tell.  Total rip-off.  Anyway, onto the real story.

If you haven’t yet read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I totally recommend it!  I know it’s a best seller and some people stay away from those just because they are popular, but it really is a good read.  The hard part about the book is that it starts off so incredibly slow.  I even texted my mom after I had been reading for quite some time because I thought it was horrible and I couldn’t get into it.  She told me to keep reading because it gets better.  So true!  It gets way better.  I love the strong female main character, Lisbeth Salander.  She gets victimized but her revenge is better than you could even imagine, and I just love that.  That and the fact that she’s super smart but everyone thinks she’s a complete idiot, she’s got most people fooled!  She doesn’t let anything get her down for long or stop her from doing what she wants to do.  There are some real tense moments which keep you on the edge of your seat, and some very surprising twists and turns.  I never expected it to end the way it did, and that’s always nice when you can’t predict the outcome.  I just started The Girl Who Played With Fire!  I hope it’s as good or better!
