I read this book on a plane on my way to Desert Shield. I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the movie adaptation of the book but nothing is better then the book. Harris has a way of writing especially in this book that made it a easy read. I can't tell you how much I would recommend this book to some that has never read Thomas Harris before. Well at least this book in particular. No spoiler alert here because I don't want anyone who hasn't read it the opportunity to get lost in a world that Harris has created. I will say BEWARE OF THE DEATHHEAD MOTH........

This is a strange psycopath romance. An intelligent monster always tries to show his poetic bloody point of view.

Pros: Loved the characters, interesting read, nicely done     Cons: Verb tense switching, can easily be substituted for the more visual movie     The Bottom Line: When you're done, go check out the real Death's Head Moth - it's super cool looking...     A week or so ago I had to leave the house for a few hours so it could be shown to potential buyers. Now, I’ve got a list of books I want to read, so whenever I leave the house for showings, …

What can I add to this novel that hasn't already been added? This book was just absolutely chilling and you wish the world would stop so you could read this book in one sitting. Lecter is one cold, intelligent monster and Starling is a brilliant Freshman. This book is a true classic and a definate read for anyone who loves this genre AND anyone who loves great literature!

As I have seen the film of the same name many times, I already understood the gruesome goal that piqued Jame Gumb's mind as he killed each of his victims and earned the name 'Buffalo Bill'. However, being aware of the murderer's intentions did not detract from the overall reading, rather it allowed me the freedom to analyze Harris' work from a craftsman's perspective and pay closer attention to the baited hints Hannibal Lector tosses to Clarice Starling akin to bits of bread flicked to greedy birds. …
