1. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting.
2. This book has more sex scenes then Game of Thrones, and that’s saying something.
3. Sweden sounds like an eerily formal place from parts of the text. I mean, we don’t have a friendship, we have a “socialization process”.
4. This book plods along for a large percentage of its length, then an exciting conclusion, then another 100 or so pages. The pacing is terrible.
5. The main character is just a stand-in for the author, right? Right?
6. The author complicates things unnecessarily, considering the sudden way that the main plot ends. Whats the point of the complicated family history when most of the information is useless?
7. “Bondage! More bondage!” is how I imagine the thought process working here.
8. Weird title, considering she wasn’t the main character.
9. Considering how things are in the world right now, a book where corporate bankers and speculators are the bad guys is bound to do well.
10. I say that because I don’t think that its very good. I would place it just slightly above Dan Brown stuff. It’s trash, readable, a bit intelligent at times and occasionally engrossing, but trash nonetheless.
11. I mean, seriously, just about every third scene could justifiably end with the words “And then they had sex”.
