You remember Hannibal Lecter. 7 years have passed since his escape from custody. Intruders have entered Dr Lecter's sanctuary, piercing his new identity. The hunt for Hannibal Lecter haas begun and who will live long enough to savor the reward. Very Good

This book is somewhat more of a character study than the more traditional thrillers posed by Harris's earlier books: while it does have some murders and gore, it focuses much more on the who and why than on the action itself. A notable exception is the ending, which (unlike the film based on this book) is really quite graphic. (The film's ending is extremely different in all respects.)

I personally found this to be a fascinating read, but also recognize that its divergence in tone and ending from the previous novels may put off some readers. That said, if you liked the previous novels and want to know what makes Hannibal Lechter tick... this is the way to find out.

Different box cover than that pictured....Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter trilogy...Hannibal is really not a sequel at all, but rather the third and most satisfying part of one very long and scary ride through the haunted palace of abnormal psychiatry.

This audio is read by the author - Thomas HarrisYou've probably seen the movie, and read the books, but now comes, the audio! Before I go any further, I should tell you that there are two different audios; the unabridged version, read by Daniel Gerroll, and this one, the abridged edition read by the author. I have listened to them both!If you get the opportunity, or you see the audio with Daniel Gerroll posted in here, GRAB IT! If for no other reason than to compare the two readings for yourself.I think Anthony Hopkins' portrayel of Hannibal was truly Emmy worthy! Sadly, I don't share that enthusiasm with the books, or for that matter, with the audios. Although this was an enjoyable listen, I actually preferred the Unabridged version (for the reader alone!)This is one of those books, that everyone you ask about it, everyone will have a different opinion! Listen to it, form one for yourself.
