The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

The books by Stieg Larsson are brilliant. I could have seen the film, it was on at the cinema in Guildford but it was one of those awful multi-screen jobs. If I am going to the cinema I’d rather go to a real cinema. Plus my friend Sian had not read the book, and I said if we went it would spoil the book for her.

I guess I will have to wait for the DVD and watch it on my laptop.

According to film director Tadeh Daschi, the film adaption is true to the book. If true, that is rare. But why does Hollywood have to bring out their own trashy American version?

Tadeh Daschi directed The Witch of Portobello starring Carolena Sabah as Athena, based on the book of the same name by Paulo Coelho.

    I just finished the series! A great read — especially “The Girl Who Played with Fire.”

    My daughter, who had not read the books, saw the movie and did not like it at all. I tried to explain that one has to get through the first half of the first book for it to take off; then, the rest of the series is marvelous. I have not seen the movie and have reservations in doing so.

    I do wish that Larrson was still around to continue entertaining us with his most inventive character, Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the intelligent edge we’d all love to have.
