Got given the latest (my first) stieg larsson book for Christmas. Got round to reading it recently,  enjoyed it. I had avoided the series before because they seemed so popular but I was impressed. Sometimes a bit predictable but generally had me turning the pages. Has anyone else read the rest?

Read all three when they came out and generally enjoyed them.
If you like these see my post from 8th Feb and give that triology a go  :thumbsup:

Started Porno yesterday. 150 pages later and totally hooked. Can't believe I've waited this long to get round to it. Irvine Welsh paints real pictures.

I thoroughly enjoyed porno, even more so than trainspotting, hope you enjoy it rocket!

Might dig it out and give it another read before the film comes out.

Got given I am Pilgrim recently and started it the other day, dark book so far!

Also read the latest in the Jack Reacher series "Make me" - excellent read and kept me interested throughout.

I read I am pilgrim whilst on holiday last year. I can honestly say it's one of the best novels I've ever read, it's fantastic and just couldn't put it down.  :thumbsup:

Terry Hayes - I Am Pilgrim

500 pages into it, still got another 350 pages to go, but so far it is shaping up as a five star

Crikey can't believe it is two years since I read that book. Said at the time it had film written all over it and believe plans are afoot

That's made my day, I was hoping they'd make it into a film!

One Second after, by William R. Forstchen.

Just think this can happen. IF it does, how would the UK/Europe/USA cope?

havent read it, Read it.

Glad you enjoyed it! I preordered the follow up as soon as I'd finished I Am Pilgrim but annoyingly the publish date seem to have been pushed back.
