It's a Gothic Novel, recommended by my 10th Grade English Teacher. I told my mom it was for school because it was the only way to convince her to get me books, I read so much it was getting expensive. I never got around to reading it until now. I really enjoyed it. It's Based in France and Italy, there are lots of landscape descriptions, it's a little bit creepy ( just how I like my books), and it's over 600 pages so it kept me occupied for a while. I'll give this one a rating of 7.5/10, only because It did take me a long time to read. Landscape descriptions took a page sometimes...I still recommend it.
I bought a book in the Airport because it was cheaper than buying it in Australia, I finally caved and bought this:
I ate it up in Less than a Week. I'm not usually into crime novels, but this one is so incredibly well written, and although it's also over 600 pages, I couldn't put it down. Do yourself a favour, avid readers, because this one is going to get you addicted to the 3 book series. To this one I probably have to give a 9.5/10. I can't just GIVE it a ten, but it was pretty darn close.
I can't wait to watch the Swedish (original) version of the Movies, but I'm a firm believer in reading the book before seeing the movie. I'm also excited to see the English language version of the 1st book coming out later this year I believe. Here is the trailer:
I am particularly excited for this version because Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is doing the soundtrack. And I love a killer soundtrack.
I'm currently reading the next one in the series:
I don't have a very long to-read list at the moment, after this series I plan on reading Eat, Pray, Love. Any suggestions?
