    Story
    (209)

    Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck. He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France, where Hannibal will live with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki.

    "Good book, good narration"
    Overall

    I thought the book was..quite good. The author is well read, and does very thorough research. This book, like Hannibal, has multiple levels. You can listen to the story, the words and verse, or the imagery. I know I get a good feeling knowing that despite paying close attention, there is no way I will be able to hear everything the first time around and will be able to listen to it again and get the same enjoyment as the first time.
    There were some reviews complaining about the author’s narration of the book. I fell in love with Harris’s unbiased, eloquent drawl in Hannibal even after listening to it many times. In this book Harris knows exactly how to read each character and performs as good as any other professional narrator I have heard, and better than some.
    If you are new to Hannibal, I would suggest reading the ‘silence of the lambs’, and ‘Hannibal’ first.
