So I mentioned in my last post that I was reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
I believe I might also have mentioned that I don't skim either, that I feel obligated to read cover to cover.
Well, I am apparently a liar.
There was no freakin' way I was going to be able to read this book cover to cover so I skimmed the last 2/3 of the book, looking for any combination of words that might pique my interest.
Well, suffice it to say not too much piqued my interest.
Here's the story [SPOILER ALERT!!!]:
He loses a court case, quits his job, is having an affair with his partner, takes a "job" for some guy to find out who murdered that guy's niece years ago, winds up having an affair with two other women, finds the woman who's not really dead, and The End.
The only part of the story I cared about never got resolved; I must have skimmed right past it. And I don't care enough to go back and read it cover to cover to find out about the flowers...
That's hours of my life I'll never get back...
