"Red Dragon is an engine designed for one purpose - to make the pulse pound, the heart palpitate, the fear glands secrete." (The New York Times Book Review)
I wish I had noticed how abridged this was before I bought it. But it is like someone describing the movie to you as it happens. Way too short. I may have to go buy the book now to see all the character development that I missed.
If you have seen the move, don't bother getting this audiobook.
It's a great story though. Wish there was an unabridged version.
This is basically the 'Cliff Notes' version of the book. Cut back far too much - this version tells you the basics, but there is absolutely zero character development.

I thought the movie was just okay and unfortunately, the audio book is worse. Why spend 3 hours listening to this when you could just watch the movie in about 2 hours and get the same out of it? Plus, the narrator, who wasn't bad, had a weak and lame voice for someone trying to portrait a killer called Red Dragon.

The story is good, very similar to the show (third season Hannibal). A little bit too short.
