In the last 2 nights before bed, I read a book (Anastasia Absolutely) from one of my favorite series as a child, the Anastasia Krupnik books. So great!!
For my trip I got The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I really enjoyed The Shadow of the Wind, so I think it should be good.

I've stated my opinion of the book in brief (which is the purpose of this thread). If you want to have a discussion about post-structuralist literary theory it might be best to start another thread.

Huh. I finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night, and I've got to say... it really was lacking in substance. The first couple hundred pages kept my attention but the last six-hundred-and-whatever I burned through, hoping the story would get better.
For a supposedly feminist book it sure doesn't seem to speak very highly of women. Blomkvist screwed, what, three of the main female characters? Berger, fine, but what was the point of the tryst with Cecilia Vanger? And Lisbeth?
I'm totally at a loss. Lisbeth really is about as deep as Lara Croft. What the hell? Why even have a rape subplot with Lisbeth at all? Some sort of analogy (w.r.t. Harriet)?
I don't get it.
