Stieg Larson Trilogy Audiobook set The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest [Unabridged Audio CD] - Stieg Larsson, Simon Vance

I was pretty enthusiastic about this being my first experience with audiobooks. I quickly became a fan since I could do my sewing while listening to it. First one - awesome. Narrator had a nice voice and is pretty good at the accents. Second one - eh... but that had more to do with the fact that book #2 is like one long filler episode setting up for book #3. Also, around the middle of this book is when the narrator ran out of unique character voices unfortunately. Third book - I was actually impressed the narrator maintained the same accents and inflections for characters from the previous two books. Quite well done.


Overall, not a bad way to spend 50+ hours or so of your time. There is definitely no rushing the audios, reading would be much quicker, but as something to listen to while multi-tasking, it was entertaining enough. My only complaint is that all three were borrowed via my library's e-loan system using Overdrive and played off my smartphone; something between these factors caused Overdrive to keep skipping ahead 2 or 3 reading points when it was trying to load (or buffer?) a new chapter and then I would be trying to find that last thing I heard or the last bookmark I made. Tedious.
