I am working my way through Nevada Barr. Great fun. I love to follow a series from beginning to end. I enjoy her books because she is so different from who I am but also because I am learning so much about State parks. A lady detective in the great outdoors is the easy way to describe her main character.

I LOVE reading and that is possibly the understatement of the century. So I decided to share my love of reading with others. Expect an eclectic mix of authors,genre's and books. I am not asking you to agree with my choices, although it would be great if you do. Rather take what you like and leave the criticism for other blogs (or not) , as you choose. I am not claiming to be a literary critic but rather an avid reader who wants to share her passion with other avid readers. I will blog about what I enjoy and try to leave the criticism to others, although if I really do not enjoy a book I may give it a mention. Enjoy
I had some low expectations before I started reading this book, as so many reviewers and friends who had already read it said it was boring and slow moving, with Lisbeth Salander being in hospital for most of the book. I am not sure that I have been reading the same book, as I could not put it down. Many trilogies end as if the author did not know what to do with is characters at the end of the story but I really enjoyed how Stieg Larsson resolved the issues, with the exception of Lisbeth's brother, which I found a bir gruesome. What a tragedy that Mr Larsson died , as I have thoroughly enjoyed his books and was sorry to come to the end of the trilogy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good read, has a couple of days with nothing to do(as you will not be able to put the book down, except maybe to make yourself another cup of coffee) and likes their reading with some intrigue left for the reader to figure out. Brilliant,Brilliant, Brilliant!!!
