It has taken me forever to finish this book, partly because I stopped reading for a while because it was so awful it put me off reading all together. Then when I finally got a grip on myself and forced myself to battle through it I had to take breaks because it was literally mind numbing. Never, ever, have I had to take breaks from a book before because of the boredom it induced.
Plot wise, it’s awful. Writing wise, it’s awful. Character wise it’s beyond awful.
I genuinely have nothing good to say about this book. I will certainly not be even attempting the third one and can only hope that the first two will now provide kindling to get me through this cold weather.
Having watched the original Swedish film I would recommend watching that rather than reading this book. Although the poor plot does mean that the film is not half as good as the first film.
