what i’m reading now…i love how the movies rock, and the books are of course even better! i never thought i’d get into a mainstream series, but not only is stieg larsson a captivating story teller, but the translation by reg keeland is flawless. not many people realize that translating a great work of art is just as important as the work of art itself.
what i like best about the millenium series books is that there are much more details, stories, and explanations than there are in the movies. which actually doesn’t make the movies bad—it’s understandable why they are not in the movies due to time constraints. however, the added notes in the books makes the plot(s) and characters seem utterly real.
