Just curious what other readers out there think. The American version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will be released on Dec 21st and I wanted to ask you all to share your thoughts with others who might be unfamiliar (yes they are out there) with the books or the author if they should read the book first before seeing the film or not. Your advice is appreciated. Of course I recently read where the sales have surged for the book so maybe people are preferring to read the book first.
The reason for the post: I was recently asked if I would recommend reading the book first before seeing the movie. I would say yes for several reasons with one of them being that you would be better served to know what to expect as the book is very dark. Also, I found The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo a page turner. The prologue of the book with the pressed flowers set a sinister tone for the novel. I found parts of the book very hard to read for obvious reasons. Enough of what I think. What do you say? The film promises to be just as dark as the book, so that’s why I say read the book first but I’d like to hear what you all think if you happen to pass through here today. Thank You.
