Reading for Me

The Books I Have Read…..Just for Me

#3: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest (Stieg Larsson)

on February 15, 2014

It took me a few years to get around to it, but I finally read the final book of the Millennium Trilogy.  Since so much time had passed since reading the previous volumes, I had forgotten some of the essential facts of the story. Those memory lapses slowed my reading a bit as well as the fact that I was battling (yet another) sinus infection while getting through the novel.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story more than the previous books. In The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, the focus turns to finding justice for the mistreatment of Lisbeth Salander. While the story takes on the feel of a legal thriller, I found myself captivated by the story without the violence that marked the earlier novels. I was a little let down by the book’s ending and found myself wanting a better resolution. Perhaps Larsson is leaving the door open to continue exploring the lives of these characters; I, for one, am done with them.

I don’t regret reading the series, but I’m definitely glad that I’m able to mark these books off of my list and move on to other things.  What’s next on my list? I’m in the process of finishing another series and reading Mockingjay, the final book in The Hunger Games saga.
