Mere perfect condition and no complaints. I'm very excited to now have the complete series and read this novel after fully enjoying the movie (and can't wait to love the book more)

I loved the movie, but the book is so much better -- Harris is a master craftsman who delivers great plots and characters with a style so understated that the books seem to be writing themselves.

Like "Red Dragon" I could not put this down.

One of the great thrillers.

For some reason, I find all of Harris' other books too awkwardly written to enjoy, and yet this book is an eternal favourite. I've read it three times in my life. The best part is knowing what's going on in Buffalo Bill's head as he does what he does.

I'm normally one for something a tad more 'fun'-----you know the ones I'm talking about---Sedaris with his 'Me Talk Pretty' or McCrae and his 'Katzenjammer' :both first-rate by the way----but I opted for this as I had seen the movie and wanted to 'read' the story. Glad I did. While the movie was fantastic, the book was, believe it or not, even better. Really blew me away. I'd recommend this even is you have seen the movie.

There are only a handful of books that I've read from cover to cover in just one sitting. Thomas Harris' SILENCE OF THE LAMBS was one of them. And for good reasons: his story was completely absorbing and he wrote it well.
You all know the story, especially because of the hit movie. But if you haven't read the book, I urge you to do so. While the film successfully conveyed the psychodrama between Starling and Hannibal, what I thought was missing was the sense of urgency, the suspense that a life was hanging in the balance. The book is a rush because its suspense is so compelling from cover to cover.

I read this book prior to watching the movie version and it prepared me for a gruesome ride.
While the writing is basic at best, the horror and mystery is spellbinding. Hannibal Lecter will send chills up your spine for days and many nights! But amazingly he grows on you as a sickeningly likable character. Clarice Starling, the tough yet fragile FBI agent, pursues a murderer and with the help of Hannibal Lecter faces her true fears. Somehow they develop a relationship that makes sense....But how does madness make sense? That must be Thomas Harris's secret!

I read this before the film
Deliberatly
And I can tell you - this book is simply phenomenal
Twisting, turning and unpredictablity is what this is about
Yet there are only 4 main locations in the book everything links together, but just as you think you can work out what's going to happen - You realise you don't
The pivotal moments of the book start very slowly, and for the first 2 pages you don't realise you are reading a pivotal moment that will change the entire books perspective from now on. It slowly evolves into a huge event, accelerating away and then before you know it the chapter's finished and you are drawn away to a different location in the next chapter
You have to keep reading -Cos you want to know what will happen
It's simply addictive and extremely well written
Oh- And It's got Hannibal Lector in it
T. Harris is a genius to think up a character like him

This time, the head of the department of Behavioral Science of the FBI Jack Crawford, sends in Clarisse Starling to talk to Hannibal at the Chesapeake State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Everyone at the FBI thinks that Hannibal knows who has been kiiling the women and they send in the beautiful first rate forensicQuantico student to talk to Hannibal. In the midst of our reading ,the killer has ensnared the daughter of a Senator. From there Clarrisse investigates the previous victims of 'Buffalo Bill. Hannibal is transferred to a Tennesssee prison and bribed with more freedom if he tells them who has captured Catherine. Hannibal fools them and ends up escaping from the prison. Catherine is saved and all is well. For now. Read the second book in this trilogy, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. I really liked it and think that it is a very captivating read. Mr. Harris really keeps you on your toes with this one, as he always does. So, yeah, get this book! It's a great suspense novel and it will keep you thinking.
