'It is an axiom of behavioural science that vampires are territorial while cannibals range widely.' Hannibal killed nine people before he was caught. And five on his escape. Two of his victims survived - one of them is in an asylum; but the other craves revenge. Mason Verger, a paraplegic confined to a respirator since his encounter with Dr Lecter, can move only the fingers of his crippled right hand across the soft blanket that covers his lifeless body.
How can you go wrong with Hannibal Lector?

The best book of the series
Would you listen to Hannibal again? Why?
I would definitely listen to this book again. I have read it once in printed form and will likely listen to the audiobook again in the medium term. I believe it to be if not the best, the most interesting book from the Thomas Harris series.
What did you like best about this story?
The characters - with the exception of Clarice Starling almost every character in the book is despicable. They are a very colourful bunch of people to say the least.
What does Daniel Gerroll bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He is a wonderful narrator, his narration of the faceless, lipless and severly crippled Mason Verger was exactly what I would have imagined from the printed version.
If you could rename Hannibal, what would you call it?
A Cheerful Homecoming
Any additional comments?
Love the ending.. which flies in the face of popular opinion. A great and unexpected ending to a wonderful series of stories.
