Fashion Book–Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

2010 July 26

As I mentioned last week, I was reading Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for book club, and I was confused by the success of the trilogy. I confess–I’m still baffled and didn’t finish the book because I really didn’t like it at all. It’s dark and violent and I found the “action” and “suspense” completely boring. But this is from the girl who falls asleep during action movies and refuses to watch Law & Order: SVU, so perhaps I should have realized this book was not for me.

All of that being said, that doesn’t mean I am going to skip my fashion book. For this one, I obviously chose Lisbeth Salander, the eponymous title character. I found Lisbeth’s character extremely difficult to relate to and unrealistic, and I wanted to add some dimension to her monochrome wardrobe of black leather jacket and jeans, so I added a few tough pieces of bold jewelry.

    You know, I was at a wedding this weekend and talked to quite a few people who were also reading this book, and who shared your underwhelmed attitude. One woman told me she’d read the first 150 pages and still didn’t really like it, that she was only slogging through it because it was a book club book.
