Ev's 30 Day Book Challenge - Day 9

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson


Day 9 - A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving


I picked this book up because a friend had read it and enjoyed it and because it was getting all kinds of positive buzz in the French book community here in Montreal, believe it or not.  I worked with a bunch of francophones that love to read.  Anyway, I picked it up and began reading it and I was certain after a few chapters that I wasn't going to like it.  It was dry, there was too much exposition about Swedish financial things, but I kept reading and kept reading... and I mean I was reading to the point where I was staying up far too late because I couldn't put the darned thing down!  


In the end, I really enjoyed this book, loved it even, but I really can't tell you why!  :)
