©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.
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.
