I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.
My ratings system:
5 stars - ADORED; plan to read over and over and over.
4 stars - ENJOYED; will likely read once or twice more.
3 stars - LIKED; may or may not read again ... someday.
2 stars - MEH; no plans to read again.
1 stars - I didn't enjoy the story and was lucky to finish.
0 stars - I couldn't or wouldn't finish for reasons that may or may not be listed in the review box.
Rating: 3.5 of 5
Too many superfluous details, which result in an overly long story, are why The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest doesn't quite hit the 4-star mark with me. The action and juicy bits don't pick up until around page 350. After that, it's full throttle till the end. So this one is definitely for patient, devoted readers of the Millennium trilogy. Satisfactory conclusion.
