      If I saw you everyday, forever, I would remember this time.And they say psychopaths aren t romantic view spoiler Their relationship has a great deal to do with the penetration of Clarice Starling, which she avidly welcomes and encourages It has much to do with the envelopment of Hannibal Lecter, far beyond the bounds of his experience It is possible that Clarice Starling could frighten him Sex is a splendid structure they add to every day.Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling Having sex Everythin [...]

      Okay, let me confess up front I loved Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs Loved them I enjoyed the movies, too the movie version of Silence of the Lambs scared the pee out of me, and even so, I didn t want it to end So, long years later when I finally got hold of a copy of Hannibal, I really, really, wanted to love it, too.But I didn t.Well, that s not entirely true If I pretend that this wasn t a sequel about characters I already know, then I can find some bright spots The book has some fan [...]

      DD 10 01 2017 Hated it passionately This is that rare case where books are even worse than films, if you can believe it I don t know whatever possessed me to flip through this series Thankfully, that entity demon of boredom cluelesness was swiftly exorcised by pretty average writing, plot with Boeing sized holes were we really supposed to believe in vanishing special agents who almost no one conveniently gives a damn about and nauseating character building So far this is a DNF Left this unfinish [...]

      I have a theory about this horrible book.BothRed Dragon andThe Silence of the Lambs are formidable pieces of pop fiction They are well written thrillers with great descriptions and characters They were both adapted into great movies They madeThomas Harris a very rich man.I think Mr Harris made a bet, maybe with a friend or just to himself He knew that his next novel would be snapped up for big bucks for the screen rights He knew he would not get any control over the script So he decided to write [...]

      Did you ever think, Clarice, why the Philistines don t understand you It s because you are the answer to Samson s riddle You are the honey in the lion Clearly, the world didn t need want is another matter, of course one novel featuring Hannibal Lecter At the end of Silence of the Lambs, the good doctor had escaped the clutches of the law, after having treated the local authorities to a grotesque display of Grand Guignol theatre by way of parting gift This was a than fitting, infinitely memorab [...]

      Oh that ending Sublime Gothic horror detective chase story, blends genres with great ease, affirming Harris as a master storyteller as if we didn t already know Don t go in expecting another Red Dragon or Silence of the Lambs This is a much bigger, far darker experience It s all in the title people Silence was the story of Clarice Starling, so there is a lot of hope and innocence to it This one, is about the dark side of her character and of that awful awesome Doctor Mr Lecter himself A decadent [...]

      Lord, what an awful book Awash in mediocrity from first page to last It has mediocre characters the same which were so captivating in Silence of the Lambs , mediocre dialogue, mediocre scenery, virtually no suspense but a plethora of pointlessly putrid acts , and a meandering narrative that often lacks consistency of time and place Hannibal does not induce fear or revulsion so much as groans and guffaws But don t worry there s a bleeding HIV postiive woman holding a baby whose last line is let s [...]

      Note After my re read on 3 24 15, have bumped from four to five stars and edited review a little I read the four books in order of sequence, not publication, ending with Hannibal I m not sure if it was following them in order or my mood, but I was enad this time around It s turned out to be my favorite in the series I know this isn t the popular opinion, but I think Harris did a brilliant job wrapping up the series.The plot is as diabolical as Silence of the Lambs was, this time concentrating [...]

    11. Chris Shepherdson on said:

      When Thomas Harris created the infamous Hannibal Lector in Red Dragon he couldn t have known the influence that character would have on crime fiction for the next decade By the time he came to write Hannibal, ten years after his previous book, The Silence of The Lambs, he must have felt some serious pressure The fact that Hannibal is the book it is, when written under these circumstances, makes it all the remarkable.To call it a crime novel is doing it a grave injustice and reading it as such w [...]

      is it as good as Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs Nois one is better Stephen KingOh put a cork in it, King I love you but you are not being truthful at all This book was IMO a giant turd of words Feel free to disagree For one, Lecter needs to remain a secondary character, the kind that will offer advice and feed on personal information of the people interviewing him In this book he is featured a lot than in other books He is free but at the same time he is hunted and he knows exactly who [...]

    13. James on said:

      The book starts off wonderfully with Harris s visualization you can see everything you read There are complex characters introduced and of course a wicked weave between them He shows the master insanity of Hannibal with his elaborate set ups for escape from not only Starling but from a vile creature named Verger who sets out to seek revenge on the good doctor And you are eating this up the whole time, because it seems that Harris is once again quite the masterful story teller But then you get to [...]

      I knew it was really a love story because I had seen the movie first, but I didn t realize how much of a love story it would become Sure, cat and mouse games were predominant, and they were satisfyingly concluded, but the true joy for me came with not only identifying with, but actively loving the title character Clarise, on the other hand, has become a much interesting character.I m not certain how much I believe her own transformation Sure, a person can be programmed, and I know that in her c [...]

      Full review will come very soon, maybe even in a few hours I don t need to think long and hard about this one before reviewing it.Indeed, a few hours later, here I am reviewing this book.First things first I will not be putting any of the spoilers under a spoiler cut That s because you SHOULD spoil yourself before reading this book, and spare yourself from reading it altogether Spare yourself SAVE yourself It s too late for me, but save yourself Usually, I put the negative stuff I have to say ab [...]

      I was obviously relishing my next installment in the world of Clarice Starling and Dr Hannibal Lecter The book opens explosively with dramatic happenings, despite Starling s FBI career being a slight anti climax due to influences from former enemies Again, I d seen the film before I read the book and so most of the major plot occurences I was already aware of, but there are differences between the two Hannibal medias than in the films of Harris previous two novels The film had the advantage of [...]

      I ve been openly endorsing a lot of cannibalism lately, what with my Eat the Rich sign down at the ongoing occupy Philadelphia event up the street As far as a strategy for revolutionary change and general economic improvement, I m not sure it will work, but it couldn t possibly be any less effective than supply side economics, and would be much fun Hannibal Lecter is, arguably, literature s most beloved cannibal I say arguably only because I want to start an argument so I ll have justification [...]

      CONTAINS SPOILERS SWEETBREADS After discovering Harris upon seeing the phenomenal movie Manhunter in the 80s I sought out Red Dragon which was a fantastic and gripping cat mouse rollercoaster ride Its follow up was of course Silence Of The Lambs, equally engrossing and with a massively popular movie adaptation to boot It was therefore such a massive disappointment to read Hannibal, a book I d waited impatiently for for the best part of a decade In all honesty I don t think I ve ever felt so defl [...]

      What a ride There are four books in this series, but the ending in Hannibal seems to be the end of the book series I ve heard that book 4 Hannibal Rising is some what of a prequel I will soon find out I start the book tomorrow.What can I say about this story Clarice Starling is still our main character Our main villain is vile and Hannibal Lecter is still encouraging us readers to carry on in Starlings plight This particular book does not have the same pattern as the first two books There is a c [...]

      Edit Second time reading it You are a warrior, Clarice The most stable elements appear in the middle of the periodic table, roughly between iron and silver Between iron and silver I think that is appropriate for you Did you ever think, Clarice, why the Philistines don t understand you It s because you are the answer to Samson s riddle You are the honey in the lion In this tale of murder and mayhem from the esteemed Thomas Harris, we follow Hannibal Lecter across the globe as he is ruthlessly pur [...]

      The part where view spoiler Hannibal makes the detective eat his own brains hide spoiler gave me nightmares.Still does.why the effff did I bring that up again.

    22. Kim on said:

      This is not a crime novel It s certainly set up like one, yes, but it s much than that Hannibal is not only a book that revolves around a killer and his unusual relationship with an FBI Agent it s a close examination of good versus evil, innocence versus corruption, and most of all, the evils of institutionalized misogyny and how the people we think we are supposed to trust betray us in the most harmful and damaging ways It s both a horror story and a psychological thriller wrapped up loosely i [...]

      I am not sure what to say about this book I really liked it and it is easily a solid 4.5 stars I will try to break down what I liked and what I was not to fond of that caused this to be less than a 5 star read I am still just speechless over the whole thing but in a good way Shocked into silence because of the amazing writing of Thomas Harris is how I feel after finishing this book This being the third book in the Hannibal Lecter series, I have been enjoying each step The problem with reading th [...]

      I see why everyone reads The Silence of the Lambs and then nothing else from this series Because the rest of it just isn t exciting So Hannibal Lecter is on the run again , but this time it s not just the FBI looking for him We have Mason Verger, who s very eager to get his hands on Lecter and feed him to his carnivorous pigs Yep, really The one thing I really like about this book is Clarisse Starling s regression Without giving anything away, the ending was simply chilling.

    26. Stephen on said:

      1.5 stars A big disappointment after really enjoying Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs Lecter becomes cartoonish in this installment and it just seems like Harris has lost his grip on the character Stick with the first two books and avoid this one and the next one.

    27. Jennifer on said:

      I was so excited to read this since I LOVED Silence of the Lambs I was a bit disappointed I listened to this book on audio and Daniel Gerroll did a superb job but I just didn t connect with this story I felt that it was all over the place Not a terrible book but definitely doesn t compare to its predecessor.

    28. Diane on said:

      This book is quite possibly what would be considered a disaster There was never a single moment where I was enthralled enough to keep turning the pages Of course, that s unfortunate, because it s set in a world where a monster like Hannibal Lecter runs free The very earth should be shivering beneath his footfalls and it doesn t Each page should be something of a continued suspension and I had no problems putting the book down to turn to something important.I ve always enjoyed the simplicity of [...]

      I am absolutely heartbroken that I ve finished this series I have overly optimistic hopes that Thomas Harris will surprise everyone with another addition, but I doubt that I ll be that lucky.I ve read a lot of reviews which have said that Hannibal is far worse than any of the other books, and that the ending different from the film s is too unrealistic to believe I have to disagree with them all I loved this book, and even though it s been 2 days since I finished it, I ve read and re read the fi [...]
