The Gryphon
Lisbeth Salander is still fighting for good....

While waiting for my Library to receive 3 more Mercedes Lackey books for me (borrowed from another Library in the System), I read "The Girl in the Spider's Web" by David Lagercrantz.

This writer is good, although not as good as Stieg Larsson's original Millennium Series ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", "The Girl Who Played With Fire", and "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest"). Those 3 books I could hardly put down to eat or sleep! I HAD to know what was happening next with Lisbeth Salander.

I loved those books so much, I watched all six movies made from the three books - a total of 9 viewings, actually! I had to watch the Swedish ones twice; once with subtitles, and once dubbed into English (preferred the subtitled version because the mouths not matching the words was too distracting for me! LOL!) The Hollywood version of the books was not half as good, IMO. Why does Hollywood think it's OK to add things to movies that were NOT in the book, and yet leave out important events that were???

Anyway, this book, "The Girl In The Spider's Web" is a good read (although I had little trouble putting it down to do other things....) I do recommend it to anyone who was missing the adventures of Lisbeth Salander as I was.

Now, I'm hoping the 3 Mercedes Lackey books arrive at my Library soon. I'm anxious to return to Valdemar. ;-)
