4.0 out of 5 stars A creepy and compelling read, 22 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Hannibal: (Hannibal Lecter) (Paperback)
This is a good book from Thomas Harris and I read it in a couple of days. It is great to read about Hannibal's world on the outside in Italy. He loves the sights and smells of Florence. This is a twisted love story between Lecter and Starling but this novel is more about Hannibal the cannibal and his experiences living in the beautiful Renaissance city of Florence. The novel starts off with Clarice Starling on a botched FBI raid which goes terribly wrong, someone close to her dies and the outcome has serious implications for her career. Meanwhile Hannibal Lecter is living in Florence in a beautiful apartment and enjoying life as a Renaissance man. He sends a letter to Starling taunting her about the raid and she is determined to track him down and bring him to justice. There is an interesting subplot involving a vengeful paedophile who is desperate to get his hands on Lecter and make him pay for his suffering. This is an enjoyable novel and a good read. It is a bit sick in parts and not as good as the two previous Lecter novels. None the less the novel is better than the film adaptation and there is enough excitement and twists from Harris to keep you gripped to the end.
Good stuff.
4 stars.
