The Girl Who Played with Fire
This is the sequel to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  Once again Mr. Larsson wows us with intigue and suspense.  Our main character is just as feisty as in book one.  Although young, she has such sophistication and physical strength. She is involved in criminal and ehtical predicaments which put her in grave danger. She is very secretive which keeps the other characters and the reader wondering how things will ever be resolved.  It was great.

 Water for Elephants
 I think I’m one of the few people who didn’t love this book.  I was intrigued with the characters and the story but I felt both could have been developed more.  The leading lady fell short of getting to the hearat of her emotions.  I also would have liked more interaction with the elephant.  I am glad I read it but I would have liked more.
