    Call me a freak, but I have a bit of a crush on Hannibal Lecter. He may be the scariest fuck out there (certainly scarier than the supposed monster of the book, Buffalo Bill), but he just oozes style and knowledge. In fact, he has so much style and knowledge that he doesn't come off as...

    The Silence of the lambs (Hannibal Lecter #2), Thomas Harris (1940) The Silence of the Lambs is a novel by Thomas Harris. First published in 1988, it is the sequel to Harris' 1981 novel Red Dragon. Both novels feature the cannibalistic serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter, this time pitt...

    One of my favorite books and film too! This is the second novel in the "Hannibal Lecter" book series. GAME CHANGER Back then, in 1991, I didn't know that Silence of the Lambs had been first a book, and even less that it was actually the second book in the literary seri...

    CONTENT ANNOUNCEMENT: Out of respect for Thomas Harris?s superb novel, I have decided that no pictures of ANTHONY HOPKINS will appear in this review. Thank you for your understanding. 4.0 to 4.5 stars. Another one of those terrific situations where I saw the movie first (and loved...

    I'm assuming this book was once shocking and groundbreaking. And okay, yes, eww with the eating people and the skinning. But also? Shut the fuck up, Thomas Harris. There are few things more obnoxious than a male author with a hard-on for his female protagonist. Worth reading for Hannib...

    I can smell your cunt! Imagine if you are a woman and you are alone walking in a dark hallway of a solitary confinement in a hospital for criminally insane. You are about to meet a serial killer who eats his victims' brain, sweetbreads, liver, etc. Then after meeting that killer, ...

    Another re-read of Silence of the Lambs, this time my favorite. Maybe it's because I'm more into the story and read them in the order of sequence and not popularity, I'm not sure, but this time around I found it even more fascinating than the first meet. Clarice is a likeable charac...

    I need to get round reading this, whats put me off is that the movie has been played on the TV so many times now Clarice and Lecter are quite vivid in my mind. I am sure the book has lot more to offer as Harris is one of my high ranking thriller writers. Some trivia on the movie......

    ?I collect church collapses, recreationally. Did you see the recent one in Sicily? Marvelous! The facade fell on sixty-five grandmothers at a special mass. Was that evil? If so, who did it? If he's up there, he just loves it, Officer Starling. Typhoid and swans - it all comes from th...

    Like the Coen Brothers were for NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, the folks behind the film adaptation of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS were smart enough to recognize genius when they encountered it. And like NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is a movie that lives up to its amazing sou...

    OMG I loved this book! What is wrong with me? Lol I really did though. What can I say? Yes, it?s grim and grisly. Harris likes to go into creepy detail about skinning people, disturbing bugs, and the ickiness of finding a severed head in a jar. It?s not gore galore though. It mo...

    After reading Red Dragon - the first in the Hannibal Lecter series - a few months ago, I've been dying to sink my teeth into (no pun intended) The Silence of the Lambs for a good while now. The film adaptation starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins is one of my favourite films of al...

    A serial killer called Buffalo Bill is abducting and skinning young women. When his latest victim turns out to be the daughter of a US Senator, the pressure?s on for the authorities to find her as there?s mere days until she?ll be killed. As a desperate last measure, FBI agent-in...

    Retro review time! Loved the movie, so I read the book. Liked the book enough to look into other Thomas Harris books. Read Red Dragon. Fucking loved it. And then it was all downhill after that. Hannibal was okay. Never read Hannibal Rising, and it still holds zero draw for me. Wh...

    It rubs the lotion on its skin. It does this whenever it is told. This line will be forever etched in my memory! So creepy. And yet so memorable. The Silence of the Lambs is one of my favorite movies, by the way. It is a movie that I find deeply fascinating (I promise I'm n...

    What more is there to say about this wonderful book that spawned an amazing movie? Hannibal Lecter is the absolute monster: ruthless, above morals, and charming at the same time. The way he acts, the way he talks, he truly is a predator. He traps you in his web and there's nothi...

    So, I read these books out of order. I started with Hannibal (which gives better background and fleshes out the character of Lecter much more than the mess that was Hannibal Rising), then read Red Dragon and finally this one. Can I just say that I love Clarice Starling? I just have...

    Unquestionably one of the best books ever written in the thriller genre. I'd call this required reading for anyone who enjoys, or wishes to write, popular fiction. I'm incredibly hesitant to call anything contemporary a "modern day masterpiece", but there are a handful of exceptions, a...

    What can I say about this book that hasn't been already said! I believe I am one of those last ones to have read this book. And before anyone asks, No - I haven't seen the film either! Although, I have been told, multiple times by everyone close to me, including my husband that I shoul...

    EXCERPT: 'Be very careful with Hannibal Lecter. Dr Chilton, the head of the mental hospital, will go over the physical procedure you use to deal with him. Don't deviate from it. Do not deviate from it one iota for any reason. If Lecter talks to you at all, he'll just be trying to find ...

    4.5 Stars I've seen the movie The Silence of the Lambs more times than I can count. I'd read this book back in High School and I like it but it didn't have real impact. Sometimes you have to read something more than once or be in a particular frame of mind. Upon my second readin...

    I re-watched the movie early this month and decided to take a look at the book that spawned what is possible the most perfect crime movie of all time. The book did not disappoint. If anything, it?s even better than the movie. There is very little difference beteen the two plot-wise, ...

    A great book and a great film. In this instance, I'd actually recommend watching the film first, as Anthony Hopkins' portrayal of Dr Lecter is so good that you'll want to think of his performance as you read the book; I certainly did, anyway. ...

    ?I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti." (Or, "a big amarone" as in the novel.) Thomas Harris's story of "The Silence of the Lambs" has always been a fascinating one for me, and I believe wholeheartedly that this is one of the most unique, most fascinating and ...

    After reading The Silence of the Lambs it?s easy to see why it became so imbedded into popular culture. There must be very few people around that haven?t heard of Hannibal Lecter. From Clarice Starling?s fragile inexperience to Hannibal Lacter?s suave superior demonic intelle...

    Why? Many years from now, historians will look back on this story and wonder why it was so important. And believe me, my friends, important it was. Today, most thrillers and police procedurals gets measured against it. For this review, I will refer to TSOTL as the story, because I'm ...
