Sometimes I have to read a book, just to remember that I love reading and I love using my imagination and stories are the greatest thing in the world.
So, with great embarrassment to admit, I read the Dragon Tattoo to start off my new year. I know, how could anyone go on reading this blog. It’s an intellectual train-wreck. Honestly, I read this because it was being made into a movie and I heard the movie was strong, so the book must be strong. This book and the Hunger Games books seem to be this year’s movies for people who like to tell everyone they are readers. Plus the Hobbit, but that’s more for people who like to read instead of interact with actual humans.
The book itself was gripping, but you feel gross after reading it. I guess that makes it good. It’s graphic and violent, so I wouldn’t suggest you read it if you don’t enjoy vomiting. It is northern European though, and that makes everything happier.
