The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Have any of you heard of this book? Apparently it's taking the world (not just the U.S.) by storm. I've heard bits and pieces about it and remember seeing the movie playing at our local indie theater. But then recently, I've seen it all over the news, on display in bookstores, and it was even on the cover of last week's Entertainment Weekly magazine (the cover title was "Secrets Behind the Hottest Book on the Planet").

Today I was in Costco and I saw the "Tattoo Trilogy" on sale ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", "The Girl Who Played With Fire", and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest") so I impulsively bought 'em! I had two separate people stop me on my way to the check-out line to tell me how much they LOVED these books.

As soon as I finish "Water For Elephants" (I'm almost done!), I have 3 new books to read. And I get to see what all the hype is about.

Has anyone read these? If so, did you like them?

I've read the first two, and was thoroughly sucked in. The third is being passed around the office, but I'm in the middle of "The Help" (which is AMAZING) so I'm putting myself at the end of the list. A warning, the books do get a bit graphic.

ooh, you'll have to tell me about them after you've started reading them. i'm so outta the loop! :)

OK. EVERYONE I know is reading it! We almost chose it for my book club (Just finished The Help!) And we even talked about reading Water for Elephants, which I liked, too. SO. Now I just HAVE to read the dragon tattoo.

I love these books...I'm mid-way through #3. yES, they can get graphic (I didn't reccommend them to my mom). but they def. suck you in. sad the author died, it would have been nice to have more! the main character rocks- she's a tough kick butt woman!

Haley friend - I was just recommended "The Help" from someone else! I need to add it to my list...

Tira - I will be sure to share thoughts after I finish reading them. What are you ladies reading in your Book Club?

Jodes - YES, read the Dragon Tattoo and then we can talk about how cool Lisbeth Salander is! (that's what everyone is telling me)

Rebecca - so fun to see you on here! I hope you're enjoying mommyhood. =)
