Good plot - poorly written,
By A Customer
This review is from: Hannibal: (Hannibal Lecter) (Paperback)
Harris has developed a good plot with some interesting twists and turns, but lets it down with limited command over the English language. It's written very much in the "Tom Clancy" school.
This is further compounded by some basic factual errors - referring for example to a translation issue in the New Testament from Hebrew to Latin - except the New Testament was written in Greek! This clear lack of classical education makes one think his descriptions of Florence (which are good) and Dante were contributed by someone else (and there are credits for this at the end of the novel).
A good 'airport read', but a classic it is not.
