whenever i have quiet time to myself i find myself picking it up. i'm excited to read the other two already and i'm only half way through it. some guy saw me reading it and suggested that i watch the films w/english subtitles. he said they're amazing and stay pretty true to the books. he also mentioned that the actual title translated to "man who hates women" or something like that. i'm so intrigued right now.

Haha, no need to put the spoiler tags on that... I mean, it's the original title afterall.

How'd you like the book? I thought it was super slow at the beginning, but once things actually started happening, I couldn't put it down!! I can't wait to read the other two now. (Did you watch the Swedish film adaptation? I was kind of disappointed...)

i'm not even done yet. i'm about 2/3 of the way through it. i need to pick it back up. it was definitely slow at the beginning. i think i glanced over the first chapter or two about 4 times before i actually read it.
