Today is interesting. We’re discovering people can in a way collaborate without really collaborating in order to make an amazing body of work. We saw it when Twilight set the stage for Fifty Shades of Grey and now another guy has just picked up where Stieg Larsson left of for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Let me say, I LOVE THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO and hearing that the huge arc of series of books he was planning to do would never be completed, due to his death, was devastating to say the least. Lisbeth Salander is such an amazing and complex character and I could not wait to read more. I’m glad that now we finally have a chance to. Sure it may not be the story Stieg set out to create, but there’s something powerful in creating something that people want to continue to see expanded, even in your demise. That kind of motivation left is as real to immortality as I think one can hope to achieve and I’m so excited to read this. I haven’t read this yet, so I’m hoping for the best and that I’m right in thinking this is a good thing.
