I give this book a 6/10. It has an interesting universe, but the work is so old, it almost seems to be in a different language. It was written in the 1930's so some of the ideas might be outdated. Nevertheless, the satire of human culture as a massproducing and pill numbing society still remains true today. It is a great comment on all the technology and advancements humankind is responsible for and asks the great question: do we really need all of this stuff? Whether you like it or hate it, this book is definitely worth checking out the library for a book report because it was so much in it that is impossible to not write 5 solid pages about it. - Patrick W., class of 2011

This is the second installment in Stieg Larsson's Millenium Series. I had previously read the first novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and could not wait to read the secnod one. I ended up reading it for a project, which was a little harder than just reading it for pleasure. However, if you are a reader who enjoys mystery, suspense, crime adventures and the like, I would highly recommend this book for you. It gave me a great perspective into the worlds of people who I normally would never have noticed. I learned from this book that the most unlikely person can change everything about your world. And that your entire world is run by the people you will never see. This has been a great series so far, and I cannot wait to read the third installment. Enjoy! - Shauna, class of 2011

The library was a busy place in November this fall! We saw 9,363 student visits during 1st-9th hours this month, with a daily average just under 500. This is significantly higher than last year's attendance in November when our daily average was just over 300.
