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.
