Recently, I read one of the books of Millennium trilogy, named “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” written by a great Swedish author and journalist, Stieg Larsson. To those who haven’t read the book, I would like to tell it’s a great psychological thriller, basically a crime novel which revolves around a journalist cum detective, Mikael Blomkvist and a super talented hacker, Lisbeth Salander who works in tandem to disclose a mystery that occured forty years back.
If I talk about this post, I am not going to review the book instead talk about my favorite and lead character of the book, Lisbeth Salander and what I came to learn from her. She is one of the most awesome female characters I have read in books.
Salander is a creep, gawky and most unpredictable person you can ever come across. She is extremely introvert and asocial person who rarely shows interest in anyone. She doesn’t have a accurately definite mental state proved from the fact that she is sometimes absolutely normal or other times, unpredictably uncanny. You can never presume what is she going to do the next moment.
On the other hand, she has different kind of traits in her. She can kick anyone to death who abuses woman as she hates man who disrespect woman. She is witty. And the most interesting fact about her is She is a world-class hacker. She has the ability to attack the most protected passwords and secured softwares which helps her in her crime detection and presenting reports.
Now what makes her an admirable personality out of such absurdities? Well she is the one who lives to a criteria in her life, follows it, “Analysis of Consequences”. She is such calculative in her life, she weighs everything down to the core either it be her personal or professional life. Well, that’s not so difficult to do, right? We all know somewhere this fact that or if I talk about myself, we all do consider the consequences of our present actions what we take. But do we all have control over ourselves completely? At times, we know the results could be harsh, we yet do something pertaining to our stuck choices. In fact, I am the whole slave of my heart. Wish, I could concentrate more on my mind than heart what it says, like Salander. And I consider, we can’t be always so matured or conscious in reality of life, but yet it’s very important to analyse the consequences of whatever we do, be it work, or even love. Life is not a joke, instead a great game to play with sharp wits.
