I waited a very long time to read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo due to the high volume of holds, and when I finally did… Well, let’s just say I don’t get all the hype. Yes, it was well written. And yes, the plotting was good and the characters were well defined. But, in my opinion, it was simply just (yawn) OK. I am told that if I read the next one in the series, The Girl Who Played with Fire, I will appreciate the first one more. We’ll see!
