Publisher's Summary

A quiet summer night...a neat suburban house...and another innocent, happy family is shattered - the latest victims of a grisly series of hideous sacrificial killings that no one understands, and no one can stop. Nobody lives to tell of the unimaginable carnage. Only the blood-stained walls bear witness.

All hope rests on Special Agent Will Graham, who must peer inside the killer's tortured soul to understand his rage, to anticipate and prevent his next vicious crime. Desperate for help, Graham finds himself locked in a deadly alliance with the brilliant Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the infamous mass murderer who Graham put in prison years ago.

As the imprisoned Lecter tightens the reins of revenge, Graham's feverish pursuit of the Red Dragon draws him inside the warped mind of a psychopath, into an unforgettable world of demonic ritual and violence, beyond the limits of human terror.

    "Grabs your attention from begining to end!"
    What made the experience of listening to Red Dragon the most enjoyable?

    I loved the narrator's voices throughout the story, as well as the storyline itself. The dramatic pauses and pronunciation really brought the details to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Dragon?

    I really loved the scene in which they went to see the tiger. I believe that was my most memorable moment.


    Which character – as performed by Alan Sklar – was your favorite?

    Will Graham was defiantly my favorite. I loved the way he would get into the mind of the killer to solve the crime. Many of his ideas where ingenious.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh no, I listened to it in multiple sittings. I usually play audiobooks while I drive.

    I'm just a guy who hates Small talk, thanks to audible and a good set of ear buds. Not shopping, not even waiting rooms are a problem.

    Story
    "Quite a thriller"

    I read this when I learned it is on David Foster Wallace's unusual top ten list. It is quite a thriller. It is set in the 70's. Hannibal Lector appears as a side character and helps, in a way, to catch another cannibal murderer. The reader has a clear resonate voice but gives intimate exchanges between romantic partners an irritating pleading whine I associate with children instead of adults. The story has enough narrative drive to overcome that bit of the performance.

    "Great Narrator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Red Dragon to be better than the print version?

    I'd never consider an audio edition better then the print version. Nothing beats your own voices and images inside your own head.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Will Graham


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Dolarhyde takes Rebba to the zoo to be able to "see" a tiger for the first time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hearing about Dolarhyde's childhood. Actually made me understand his character and feel for him.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator did such an amazing job reading this book that I felt like I was in the story.

    "Well read version of a good story"

    I like that this story went more into Francis's backstory of his saddened childhood. It helped to understand why the character is so deranged

    Very good, yes, very good. Much better than Hannibal rising the only grip is I didn't really enjoy the narrator.
