Format: Hardcover
The last third of the book goes a long way toward redeeming the rest, and there are some dead-on critiques (tongue-in-cheek) of plot points from the book series of which this is a parody. The parody ending is arguably a lot BETTER, and the original was almost as difficult to keep slogging through... though ultimately more rewarding.

granted, i had high hopes for this book. but i'm now 95 pages in, and i don't even want to turn to the next page. on literature alone, i'd give this book a 0 stars if i can. this book could have been so much more, but it's just a money sucking scheme preying on people's curiosity and hearts, when in fact its plot and humor is as hackneyed and tasteless as chewing on gym socks from fat camp. or rather, as tasteful. there're pages and pages of intellectually insulting dialogue trying desperately to be cute/silly/funny, or of taupe being a color. hmm, i wonder the taupe part should be considered a spoiler considering it IS a major recurring component of the plot so far.

but i'm going to give this book 2 stars.

because it is hilarious seeing people do double takes at the book title, and it's an excellent conversation piece with girls at bars.

Any time someone asks me what I'm reading and I give the title of this book, they correct me, thinking I meant the more widely known "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." This is a spoof and a satire and very enjoyable read. These dragons are so intelligent that one tends to forget while reading that they are dragons, until the author mentions what they do when they meet new dragons. They maneuver around trying to sniff one another's buts, just like certain other animals. These dragons spend their life trying to accumulate more gold to hoard, and any dragon who does not is known to be in need of a legal guardian. The author has managed some commentary on life while the reader laughs over the characters of the dragons.
