This past Thursday was my book club meeting in which we discussed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. This was a very difficult book to bring about talking. Many of the members found it confusing, difficult to follow, and/or boring. On top of that out six myself and another were the only ones who finished and both of us are the most soft spoken. Secondly, the questions set by the publisher were worded in a way that it was hard to understand the question(s) themselves. Therefore, 90% of the meeting was socializing. While this was enjoyable I think we were all frustrated by the lack of conversation this book supplied. I guess you can’t win them all. I personally love this book and it was the second time I read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and was sad when I finished the trilogy as I knew I would never read a novel featuring Lisbeth again as the author died in 2004.
Anyway, our next meeting is The Bad Seed by William March, and following the book discussion will be a showing of the 1956 movie. I read The Bad Seed for the first time last year and immediately decided it will be an annual read as I already do with the film. Anyway, I’m thus very much looking forward to reading/watching this with a fresh group of eyes.
