I wpould dearly love to see more from this author but sadly have only found one other title, aside from the Hannibal collection, that he has written, a shame as this is an extremely good writer.
I personally thought it was a befitting prequel to the story of Hannibal Lecter, and explained his life leading up to the events that take place in Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs very well. I did however feel as though the publishers had attempted to make the book look much longer than it actually was. The font was quite large for an adults novel and I felt as though it only added to the feeling that some of it was quite rushed. That being said, I still enjoyed it as an insight into Hannibal Lecter's childhood and past, which filled in some of the blanks from the TV series.
I would recommend this book as a light read and for anyone who wants to see what made the infamous character all that he was set to become.
