Book Review – The Girl In the Spider’s Web

Girl In the Spider's WebI give this book 3.5 stars out of 5.  I would have really liked to give it a higher rating but there were parts in the book where I was just plain bored.

The first thirty pages reeled me in and I found it very familiar when comparing it to the other three books written by Steig Larsson.  Once I got to around page forty, however, I found that I became bored — it was a lot of technical jargon about computers, hacking and complicated mathematic algorithms.  I found the book would then switch back over to Mikael Blomkvist and things would pick up again for a while.  I enjoyed the storyline of Lisbeth protecting the autistic savant child in a manner that you wish someone had protected her when she was young.  I don’t want to give away the ending, but it held out hope for me that the next book might be pretty interesting so I no doubt will continue on with the series.
