"Praise for Hannibal:
Quite simply a compelling and brilliant thriller" (Daily Mirror)
"The thrills, horror, sly erudition and sheer exquisite writing make this so much more than another serial killer novel ... [It] reaches almost sublime levels of gothic grandeur at its conclusion. If only all bestsellers were so rewarding" (Guardian)
"A masterpiece... Chillingly brilliant" (Observer)
"Quite simply this is the best-written thriller to dominate the market in years ... A literary evocation of the diabolical to compare with Goethe and Gogol. Honestly" (The Times)
"A gut-churning, nail-biting, skin-crawling, often lyrical triumph - addictive on every level" (Daily Express)

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.
And many ways, that’s what makes this work stand out from Harris’ other work – in many ways, it’s almost a different genre to the other books in the series, touching on historical and military thrillers, as well as its traditional blood and gore. Add that to the fact that it’s also his most recent, at least at the time of writing, and that he hasn’t written another book for the last eight years, and you can see why this is a little bit special.
Not all of the critics agreed, but what do I care? I rate my books on how much I enjoy them, and I loved this – I’d go so far as to say that if you haven’t read any of the Hannibal books, you should start here. After all, you’ll get to see his character develop, and it’s arguably the best Thomas Harris novel in my opinion, and so what have you got to lose?
Back the veil and get to peek in at
Hannibal's darkest fantasies and fears. Thomas Harris is only a man, people place way too much hype on these kinds of works, when such a iconic character burst from it's pages, and onto the big screen. I enjoyed the film also which received much criticism, possibly stemming from the absence of Anthony Hopkins?
