Ould be happy if someone came along who convinced me that this book turned a huge corner and I should have kept reading but I doubt that will happen Update read in August 2015 but decided to update in January 2016 I read the The Millennium Trilogy in anticipation f The Girl in the Spider s Web and as soon as it was Tank! out I began reading it with a lotf excitement and a little apprehension just in case the new author doesn t live up to Geek Feminist Revolution or come close to the writing talentsf Stieg LarssonWell clearly David Lagercrantz is no Stieg Larsson and everything I loved about The Millennium Trilogy was missing here The plot was slow and tedious Lisbeth Salander was absent from a good portion Lucky Luciano of the book and when she turned up her character was different and not as well thoughtut A Reader& or intriguing Lisbeth is my favourite character the driving forcef the series and the reason I love the trilogy so much but in The Girl in the Spider s Web she lost that uniue element that made her Lisbeth Salander Her narrative was different her actions didn t make sense and there were lots The Ladys Handbook for Her Mysterious Illness of little things that didn t add up about her reactions She was a caricaturef her former self I found myself Skimming due to boredom until things picked up near the end but by then I was ready for it to end I actually got the audiobook too but nothing changed I m a huge fan Churchill of The Millennium Trilogy and I ve read it several times but this book didn t feel like a continuationf Stieg Larsson s trilogy Everything was Euripides Fabulae: Vol. II: (Sup., El., Her., Tro., Iph.Tau., Ion): 2 outf sync I guess this shows that you can t rope in another writer to continue a deceased authors work You can t replicate the Jean-Paul Sartre original authors style experience knowledge and all the complexities that went into developing and writing The Millennium Trilogy I ll probably reread this book sometime in the future just to see if mypinion f it changes but I doubt it will Still I m willing to give it a second chance just to be fair to David Lagercrantz and in appreciation f the effort it took to write The Girl in the Spider s WebBefore publication in May 2015OMG I just found In Enemy Hands (Honor Harrington, out my favourite series The Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larssonis is being continued by a new author I m so happy and so bloody scared it is all going to go wrong I both hate and love thisOh who am I kidding I need The Girl in the Spider s Web right now September is too faraway It s always the wrong people who have the guilty conscience Those who are really responsible for suffering in the world couldn t care less It s thenes fighting for good who are consumed by remorse David Lagercrantz a novelist and journalist was asked to assume responsibility for the continuation How Ireland Really Went Bust. by Matt Cooper of a trilogyf novels that frankly took the publishing industry by storm The books left readers stunned with the marvelous insanity Super Gran Abroad (Super Gran, of the writing More importantly Stieg Larsson created a character who is forever immortalized asne Bambi and Me of the greatest anti heroes to ever steput Pocahontas of the pagesf a book Lisbeth SalanderIt doesn t surprise me that Lagercrantz is a little afraid f her Who isn t His fear might be reflected in the fact that she is a shadowy figure #in the book until about halfway through when she answers a call from Mikael Blomkvist Shut up and listen she #the book until about halfway through when she answers a call from Mikael Blomkvist Shut up and listen she yes that s my girl She doesn t look like much just an androgynous girl with piercings tattoos and strange hair She is undersized but bristles with attitude The utward appearance is not just for showit is bone deep She is blessedcursed with a photographic memory She doesn t have the patience Book of Magickal and Occult Rites and Ceremonies or sympathy for stupidity She has no time for social niceties If you were her friend you would see hernly when she wanted to be seen If you are involved with her sexually you will find that you are not really involved with her at all But the sexwellis by all accountsfantasticIf you are someone who gets aroused by beating up women Bald Eagle (Zeuss Pack or children you better pray to all that is holy that Salander doesn t findut who you are because you will find yourself with her boot The Lady Elizabeth (Elizabeth I, on your throat wondering how this diminutive creature incapacitated you so uickly You ll want to hurt her but she is capablef not nly hurting you physically but also taking your whole identity away from you Becauseshe is also a hacker A vengeful hacker but also a prideful hacker When she gets the chance to hack the National Security Agency in Washington DC she goes through their system like buttered bread All hell breaks loose Lagercrantz might have underestimated just how much America would verreact to such a breach Ultimate Memory Book of security In reality Sweden might have found themselves invaded by Marines tanks and Apache helicopters as the Americans turnedver every stone looking for someone with the hacker handle WASP For the first part f the book Lagercrantz
Puts Mikael Blomkvist Center Stage Mikael Blomkvist center stage would make sense that he identifies with him since they share a similar profession Not that I mind spending time with Mikael Blomkvist if he were a real person would give me hope for journalism He is a person bsessed with the truth Other journalists either revere him Far Strike (The Transcended Book 3) or hate him He is a target for those that loath him Your uncompromising attitude makes people feel pathetic Your very existence reminds them just how much they ve soldut and the you re acclaimed the punier they themselves appear When it s like that the O Mistério do Infante Santo only way they can fight back is by dragging you down Millennium the magazine he founded is in trouble They had to sellut a portion Disgrace (Department Q, of theirwnership to keep the publication afloat but now those same corporate people who bought them to add some integrity to their Monsoon own listf titles suddenly want to compromise the integrity Slice by Slice of Millennium by adding human interest material For me now that I mne Angels Flight (Legion of Angels Book 8) of thewners Ice Maiden of the publication I work for the trials and tribulationsf a magazine to keep up subscription levels hit home Any softening Latin Lovers Greek Husbands Bundle of the economy turns subscription renewals into luxuries not to mention all the competition from free publicationsnline that also erode print subscriptions So Blomkvist is in Tes The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well The implications are staggering Blomkvist in desperate need Seducing the Heiress of a scoop for Millennium turns to Salander for help She as usual has herwn agenda The secret they are both chasing is at the center And Cowboy Makes Three of a tangled webf spies.
