This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover is yet another in a long line of instances in which I’ve heard raves about this book, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It’s getting made into a movie by director David Fincher (the threepeat of awesome that is Se7en, The Game, and Fight Club, among others) and all these big names–Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, etc.–keep popping up in the casting rumors, but I have no idea what this “phenomenon” is about.
Anyone who has read it, is it actually good? Or is is poorly written trash like the other massively-popular-for-no-good-reason Twilight books? Feel free to comment because something that draws the attention of Fincher, whose directorial style is atmospheric, stylish, and altogether amazing, is something I am plenty willing to check out.
