    One year when I was in grad school a fellow student in my program sent a ranty invective laden email to the entire department This was notable and sticks in my memory because usually it was the tenured faculty who wrote these tirades His rant had been spurred by the announcement of a new scholarship program intended to encourage women to pursue advanced degrees in technical disciplines His argument as near as I a could figure out at the time and b can remember now since it's been a few years wasn't simply that he felt gender based scholarships were a form of affirmative action and that he opposed this His argument sent to the entire department was that this sort of program was part of a secret agenda directed against all men everywhere and that by letting this kind of thing stand the department was tacitly supporting the complete emasculation and disempowerment of males in general And so forthI had a private exchange with him because I really couldn't believe that he meant what he'd said Because I'm naive I pointed out that his claims were insane and offensive and did he realize he sounded like a kook? The details of our entire exchange are unimportant but suffice it to say that I didn't come away feeling differently about his kookiness Especially after he tried to help me see that I'd been brainwashed about gender issues Huh So I disregarded him from then on But his email signature noted that he was at the time the Executive Vice President of the National Coalition of Free Men A bit of digging led me to find some of his online essays including one gem wherein he tossed around references to our culture's headlong flight into Nazi like gendercide which are verbatim quotes so yes he Godwined himself He also compared his spiritual and political war against masculophobia to the cause of Mahatma GandhiSo yeah this dude had some issues I don't know anything about the NCFM and can't draw opinions about its overall membership but do I feel confident based on several exchanges with him that this particular guy hated women This past June a news brief in the Santa Fe Reporter noted that a member of New Mexico's congressional delegation came under fire from men's rights groups for supporting the Violence Against Women Act According to the Reporter this Act was proposed by Amnesty International and aims to increase aid for women abroad and to establish State Department offices dedicated to their protection Among the groups attacking Representative Lujan's position on the VAWA was Abusegate which has anonymous backers and which is closely affiliated with Men's News Daily Another Abusegate affiliate maintains lists of companies guilty of male bashing Such as KFC's pink bucket campaign against breast cancer I assume Yoplait's similar Save Lids to Save Lives program has also landed them on the dreaded listAnyway the piece in the Reporter ran under the title Abuser's Lobby Demands Apology Which you know? Yeah Kinda trueI mention all this as a loooong and discursive means of pointing out that the original Swedish title of Stieg Larsson's first novel is Men Who Hate Women To English audiences this book is of course The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo which is fine but loses the whole point of the first book I prefer the original title because it sets a tone for the entire trilogy I also prefer the original title because in some places the trilogy struck me as a meditation on gender relationships On the other hand I think all three English titles taken together make for a better collective at the price of perhaps overemphasizing Lisbeth Salander's role in the first book She's the centerpiece of the second and third novels but not the first That long and discursive introduction is also my way of skating around the fact that it's been a few months since I read these books so I've already forgotten some of the plot details Which is why I'm taking the easy way out by writing up my thoughts of the trilogy as a whole rather than each individual bookThe thing that immediately struck me when I started Dragon Tattoo was that the book especially the first hundred pages or so read very much like a first draft from somebody who didn't have much previous experience writing fiction novels I can say this because I recognize many of the same infelicities of language and technique from early drafts of my own novels And maybe the final drafts too In other words it's clunky Not fatally so but a few sharp eyed beta readers could have done wonders for ironing out these books The style improves steadily through the trilogy but not without hiccups And that's a shame because there's a really good story here and some terrific characters but they're hobbled by the presentation Larsson had important and entertaining things to say but he just didn't say them as clearly as he might have These books completely ignore the usual rules of thumb pertaining to the proper use of point of view and blatantly disregard the standard wisdom about starting with backstory namely don't The plotting particularly in Fire and Hornet's Nest relies upon coincidence than it should And the vast majority of the protagonists' character development is told rather than shown or demonstratedI find that last point particularly interesting because the thing most people point to when raving about these books are the characters Particularly Lisbeth Salander the emotionally borderline supersmart punk pixie computer hacker And yeah she's a very interesting character Thing of it is Larsson spends page after page in Dragon Tattoo telling us how interesting she is before we ever actually see her you know be interesting It nearly turned me off further reading Which would have been a shame because I would have missed out on a good storyDragon Tattoo is a self contained story hinging on the investigation of a forty year old cold case I found the mystery fascinating I don't read many mysteries and I thought Larsson introduced the central mystery to absolutely terrific effect in a brief four page prologue But it takes a while to get back to what's presented in the prologue because the next hundred or so pages wander all over the place before settling down All three of the Millenium books are considerably longer than they needed to be As I said they read like first drafts And pretty damn good first drafts for all that but damn how I wish they could have been tighterBut On the other hand these books are huge international megabestsellers So what does that mean? I think it means one doesn't have to write to please other writers in order to become mind bogglingly successful And in fact when you get right down to it who cares what other writers think? It's the readers who want to fall inside a good story who feel connections with the characters who'll make a writer's career So who cares if the first half of Dragon Tattoo reads like Larsson couldn't settle on his PoV characters? Who cares if Fire and Hornet's Nest are hobbled by a completely unnecessary subplot that only serves to bloat the books? And which might never have been part of the story if in fact the books had exhibited control over PoV in the first place These are fiction novels and they did what they were supposed to do They entertained me and they made me think and they made me uncomfortable in placesOnce I got past my initial snobbery I found the stories damn interesting and the characters compelling I like Lisbeth Salander because she's smart tough as coffin nails and doesn't mess around I like Mikael Blomkvist because he's dogged and determined I like it when they team up to take down people who seriously deserve it And because I'd grown attached to them I was pulled right along when Salander dances on a frying pan in Fire and dives headfirst into the furnace in Hornet's Nest And because I didn't start reading the trilogy until just before the third novel was published here in America I wasn't put out by the fact that Fire is not a self contained story like Dragon Tattoo Also people had warned me about this The second Millennium book ends on a painful cliffhanger and I'm glad I didn't have to wait for the resolution These books made my commute considerably shorter And if they ever do finish that fragment of the fourth Millennium book Larsson started before his death I'll buy it Because even if the writing isn't terrific the story is bound to hook my interest
