New Book & Girl w/ the Dragon Tattoo Meeting Recap

We had a great meeting on Saturday to discuss The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Thanks to everyone who attended for a lively discussion and some delicious sandwiches.

Amanda P. and Steph went to see the movie in Swedish on Sunday afternoon. It was looonnng but very good. It condensed the book down to the most interesting (and relevant) parts but also managed to stay pretty true to the original plot.

The actress who play Lisbeth, looking surly. She did surly well.

If you go, be prepared to sit through some really brutal scenes. The Swedes don't tastefully cut away like most films we see out of Hollywood. Also be ready to ignore the fact that all the characters sound like the Swedish chef from the Muppets.

We also chose the next book - Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. Amanda P. has generously offered to check if she can get it through work at a cheaper price than Amazon.

Also, on a side note, the Charlotte chapter of the Women's National Book Association is having its monthly meeting tomorrow at Park Road Books. If you are free, drop by to hear about some great summer reading picks! Starts at 7 PM.

Happy reading!
