review 1: I will NOT be reading other books by this author. Her only point seems to be that the world is going to hell in a hand basket and people trying to do good are spitting on a fire. Well, thank you very much, I see enough of that every day, I don't need a fictional depiction of th...

review 1: This is the first Denise Mina novel I've read. Set in Glasgow, Scotland, "The Red Road" features DI Alex (Alexandra) Morrow. It's part of what's been nicknamed the "Gritty Scottish Urban" mystery genre--think Ian Rankin, among others. Morrow becomes involved in several cases t...

review 1: This is a really interesting novel, more than the usual mystery. It is never in doubt who is guilty, but the police process of discovery provides for an engaging police procedural, as good mysteries do. Several sub-plots are well developed, relating to family relationships at var...

review 1: I liked this book very much. The artwork was nice, the story was well conveyed. I found some panels had hard to follow speech bubble patterns but that happens in many books. I thought the lack of sandwiches and Billy's Pan Pizza was sort of silly. They were very big parts of the ...

review 1: The first thing I look for in a comic book I know nothing about is artwork that I find pleasant. It might be very shallow but the truth is I find it a bit hard sometimes to read a comic book with art that is not to my taste no matter how brilliant a story. I knew nothing of A Sic...

review 1: As someone who read the novel I found the relationship between Lisbeth and Mikael very lacking. I also found in this book there were many pages of action panels with no speaking and no sort of narration really and I found they weren't as easy to read as a story as most full actio...

review 1: This my third time reading about a movie/book turned into a graphic novel. I love experiencing the evolution of the stories. In this particular novel, the story is dark. There is big corporations, crime, and abuse. The full page spreads of Lisbeth are badass. I'd like to hang the...

review 1: Graphic format of the novel. I'm not sure this would be easy to follow if you don't already have the background of the story and the characters. I feel like I would have been lost. Bad way to also get to know Lisbeth Salander, one of the best characters to have ever been born ...

review 1: I'm always a little leery of overly adapted stories. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has, counting this one, been adapted three times over the past few years, so I was even more cautious than usual before picking up this graphic adaptation.The art and production values are gorge...

review 1: So it seems I have a huge, huge weakness of Lisbeth Salander. But do you blame me? The graphic novel adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo brings her to life, and I found myself looking forward to the parts with her in it more than Mikael's story. However, that could be b...

review 1: Löysin Denise Minan kymmenisen vuotta sitten ja ahmin psykologisen sairaalloisen Garnethill -trilogian kerralla. Ihan mieletön dekkari-idea. Sitten Minaa alettiin kääntämään, ja jotenkin taika alkoi haihtua. Ihan samalle tasolle kirjailija ei minusta enää päässyt.Vakavasti sairas...

review 1: As much as I love the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books... I simply did not like this. But, perhaps it is BECAUSE I liked the books that I had problems with this adaptation. I have only two real problems, but they are inherent flaws in the story and cannot be excused. First off, ...
