In this world where man dominates everywhere, its difficult to believe that a woman can victimize a man. It's even hard to imagine it being sexual harassment . However Michael shows us how harassment is not a quality of gender but of power.

The novel breaks quite a lot of our pre conceived notions about the world and about the psychology of human beings. This is a book that must be read for the sheer brutal truth.

The Girl Who Played With Fire

Stieg Larsson continues to amaze with the second part of the Millenium Series. While The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo brought Mikael and Lisbeth together , now they face dangers and mysteries that are much bigger than what they had to endure last time. And it gets really personal this time. Lisbeth takes the center stage here and rightly so , after all she is the The Girl Who Played With Fire.

Stieg Larsson continues to keep the focus on violence against women and also gives new insight into the Sweden Security Agencies.

And once this book is read there is only one thing that is more satisfying , reading the next and final book - The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‎

This is part one of the Millennium Series of Books by Stieg Larsson. The book starts with parallel stories of the life of a journalist and a very unique girl(no prizes for guessing what tattoo she has). And continues into a murder mystery which gets both of them involved.

Stieg Larsson's personal views are very evident in the book. This is an excerpt form Wikipedia
When Larsson was 15 years old, he witnessed the gang rape of a girl, which led to his lifelong abhorrence of violence and abuse against women. His longtime partner, Eva Gabrielsson, writes that this incident "marked him for life" in a chapter of her book that describes Larsson as a feminist. The author never forgave himself for failing to help the girl, and this inspired the themes of sexual violence against women in his books.
The plot is based in Sweden and provides an insight into a hidden world within Sweden. As it is claimed that - Everything described in the book is a real life incident that has happened to someone in Sweden.

The violence depicted in the book gets extremely graphic at times, it would be prudent to stay away for those who are disturbed easily , especially by sexual violence.

The novel in itself is very thrilling and leaves the reader waiting to get their hands on the next part of the series - The Girl Who Played with Fire

The Host

I had almost given up reading this book after the first few pages. Nothing made sense as the story begins abruptly, and can be confusing initially. But after that the book turned out to be quite interesting.

The plot is extremely unique , love triangle involving two bodies. It certainly has a good mixture of romance, thrill and bizarre .

The story narration is from the alien's point of view which makes it quite interesting.

The Climax and Anti Climax both were interesting and surprising.

This is certainly a great book from Stephenie.
