©1989 Thomas Harris; (P)2002 Random House Audiobooks
"The best book I've read in a very long time....Subtle, horrific and splendid." (Roald Dahl)
"A snapshot from hell." (Rolling Stone)
I am happy that I already knew this story from book and movie before I heard this audiobook, because it has been abridged so much that it makes no sense, the story simply does not work! Also I have to admit that Thomas Harris does not do a good job of narrating hos own book, as he uses an objective almost cold voice through out. I think it's time for a re-issue of this classic story and in the meantime I strongly advice anybody not familiar with the story to read the book and/or whatch the movie.
The book and story are very good, this abridged version is horrible!
I was very disappointed.
I listened to this a second time not long ago and it's just a great fictional story about a crazy psychiatrist which made it an enjoyable read / listen
Hannibal talking to the young FBI agent and extracting information out of her.
Just as good as the other Thomas Harris performances.
The same as the title of the book - Silence of the Lambs. Suspense thriller.
Listen to this novel before you listen to Hannibal and the latter will make a lot more sense. Enjoyed the book thoroughly and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense thrillers.
Yes. It was alright for a casual read
Bit of anticlimax
This was advertised in other places as being one of the best books ever written, and I had been warned not to read it alone and at night, but none of it was a terrifying as advertised.
