Lisbeth Salander, Badass

Leave a comment


WARNING – If you haven’t read the Millennium Trilogy in its entirety, don’t read any more of this post.  Major plot giveaways!

The main reason I decided to do a character comparison is because when I finished The Girl who Played with Fire (book 2) and Salander survived 3 gunshot wounds and dug herself out of a grave, my first reaction was, she’s Beatrix F*cking Kiddo! (If you’ve been living under a rock and you’re unfamiliar with the protagonist of the Kill Bill movies,  move along!)  So, who’s more of a badass, Lisbeth or Beatrix?

Verdict: Lisbeth.  I think the tie-breaker was the impossibility of a tiny, antisocial citizen deemed incompetent taking on a creepy group of sickos with an agenda was way more dangerous than assassin vs. assassins.

I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and a house full of books. Book collecting, reading, and reviewing consume my life. I have a special affinity for all things Alice in Wonderland. I began my education at Carthage College, wanting to be an English teacher. Eventually I decided that Carthage and I weren’t a good fit anymore, so I transferred to North Park University, where I realized I didn’t want to be a teacher. So I finished my education with a degree in English with a writing concentration. I was always a voracious reader and wrote my first review in April 2007. I don’t remember why exactly I decided to write a review, only that I had just finished The Agony and the Ecstasy and had a strong feeling that I needed to express how I felt about it. This inspired me to write reviews about each book I wrote and after posting on Amazon for two years, I was invited into the Amazon Vine program. I am also an active reviewer/member of Goodreads and enjoy being an active member of the online book community.
