    I finally gave in and read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. By halfway through I had determined the answers to the mysteries presented. However, I doggedly slogged on through the wordy narrative to corroborate my speculation, but I have now decided that I won't be finishing the series. Are the next 2 books paced any better? I felt as old as Henrik Vanger by the time it was over.

    The next 2 books don't require you to wade through all the family history stuff, so, yeah, I'd say they moved faster. Definitely.

    Thanks, Adgy. The Salander character is so much like a friend/co-worker of mine that I just may keep going.

    Cool. I'd hesitate to say that you'll enjoy them even if you didn't like the first one, but the chances are increased, at least. How much depends on how little you liked the first one. Speaking for myself, I could hardly put the second and third ones down.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that felt this way. I'm assuming that you finished the book. I couldn't get through it at all when it kept on rambling on about the lineage and crap. I told Adgy I wanted to throw his copy at the wall. I had a friend that recently finished it too and she said that she couldn't put it down. That still shocks me.

    Forget the books VCRW! Just watch the movies! Although the first movie was pretty damn boring to me. But I liked the 2nd and 3rd movies.

    I finished Life, On the Line by Grant Achatz on Friday. It's the biography of the chef who started Alinea - a Chicago restaurant that is rated one of the top in the world. It's my favorite book this year, and perhaps one of my favs of all time. This is guy is truly amazing with his drive and ambition, and vision of new ways to experience food. What makes his story even more intriguing was that in his early 30's he was diagnosed with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue. During is chemo and radiation therapy he lost his sense of taste yet still continued to work at his restaurant.

    Damn it, I wish I was filthy stinking rich so I could eat there....
