Response to hermetic (Original post)

16. I spent most of the last week & a half reading all three "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series.

My to-do list today is very long.

It was an engaging story but there was a lot that I thought could have been cut - especially the detail of all the police characters. The Lisbeth character was over the top, but so unique that I didn't mind. Also, as we go more & more digital, who's to say she's over the top. What do I know about the deep web & shit like that? It was a fun read.

I finished the series late Friday night, like 2AM, lol, & let it digest for the rest of the weekend. Last night I started Imperfect Birds, by Anne Lamott & didn't like it, so I then started The Horned Man, by James Lasdun. It's a small book, under 200 pages & quirky as hell. I'm on page 55 & very curious how the story plays out.
