I recently downloaded the trilogy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo onto my E-Reader. I read the first book with great interest, it was AWESOME, I love Ms.Salander.. she’s a character — I love how she thinks, schemes and get’s even with her enemies..
I finish the Dragon Tattoo and a week or two later start into the 2nd of the trilogy, The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. I begin reading the book and it sort of picks up where the last book ended, but there seems to be a bit of a gap in the events. I finish reading the book with great interest, it was AWESOME. I love Salander and Michael Bloomquist even more than I did after the first book. I then begin to read the 3rd book in the trilogy “The Girl who Played with Fire”. I launch myself into the story and within 10 or so pages my brain says: “Wait a minute – I thought that guy was dead????”, I read a few more pages and it becomes glaringly apparent that I’ve somehow managed to read the books OUT OF ORDER! Yes, that’s right!! I read the The Girl who kicked the Hornets nest as the 2nd book instead of the 3rd!! Well, it’s too late to UNDO that mistake, isn’t it? I’m now filling in all the hole’s AND my questions are being answered with every page I turn.. I wouldn’t recommend reading a trilogy: 1, 3, 2. but, in hindsight, It’s an interesting brain exercise..
