The book is always better--grittier, scarier, more real.

One of the best psychological thrillers ever written, and personally, Thomas Harris' very best work. Bravo!

Hannibal Lecter is once more sought out for his expertise in serial killers, being as how he is one himself. This time it's a young agent, Clarice Starling, who needs his help in stopping a killer who skins his victims. During the course of the investigation, Clarice must learn a lot about herself and the man who is helping her to save the life of a young hostage. This is the best in the Hannibal Lecter series, by far! If you don't read any other book in this series, read this one. It's even self-contained, so you don't have to worry about getting lost in backstory.

Harris delivers a fast-reading, fascinating crime thriller with Silence of the Lambs. A lot of research went into this book and I found the informational, procedural passages very interesting. The focal characters, Starling, Lecter, and Crawford are compelling and run deeper than the characters you will find in most thrillers. Harris makes you care about Starling and pull for her, without resorting to melodrama. This book is well-written and worth reading, even if you've seen the movie already.

I have seen the movie many times, but just got around to reading the book. It's an excellent story well worth reading.

This book was AWESOME.
This was the first of the Hannibal series that I read, and I just loved it.
I am going to read the rest of the series now.

Scary. Just plain scary. If you haven't seen the movie, where have you been? Wait...that wasn't kind. I meant to say, if you haven't seen the movie (or even if you have), READ THIS. Spare writing style, so it's rather hard to get into the book at first, but once you're in, you're in for a wild ride. Scary. Really scary. Have I mentioned this is scary?
