    I first stumbled upon Red Dragon at age 14, and was amazed by it all I had never read anything even remotely similar In fact, the closest I had come was King s Carrie It was my gateway into the world of psychological thrillers, and at this point I simply cannot turn back Harris did an excellent job in capturing the horrific and violent genius that is Dr Hannibal Lecter The movie adaptations, in all honesty, did no justice, and that is why I recommend the quartet of books in even higher reg I first stumbled upon Red Dragon at age 14, and was amazed by it all I had never read anything even remotely similar In fact, the closest I had come was King s Carrie It was my gateway into the world of psychological thrillers, and at this point I simply cannot turn back Harris did an excellent job in capturing the horrific and violent genius that is Dr Hannibal Lecter The movie adaptations, in all honesty, did no justice, and that is why I recommend the quartet of books in even higher regard My personal favorite is Hannibal.We essentially follow the life of Hannibal Lecter, a cannibal of high intelligence and refined taste He is captured trust me, it s no spoiler and placed in a heavily guarded hospital for the criminally insane However physically secluded, he still keeps contacts with the outside world through published articles and columns in a number of psychological journals His opinions are still regarded in high esteem, despite his insanity , even by the FBI To the bureau, Lecter is viewed as a complex tool to delve into the minds of serial killers who have yet to be captured However, he s no fool, and finds ways to be payed for his time in the most conniving of ways.Certainly a must read for any thriller fans out there

    Like good black coffee, the perfectly good villain is a creature hard to define and even harder to find Fortunately, in the hands of the good Dr Hannibal Lecter, we re perfectly taken care of.For the purpose of this discussion, we re going to forget the films and TV show fans of horror are purists in matters of the heart and Dr Lecter is very, very close to our collective hearts.When you look at the books sequentially, there is a marked progression of Thomas Harris s interest in Hannibal as a Like good black coffee, the perfectly good villain is a creature hard to define and even harder to find Fortunately, in the hands of the good Dr Hannibal Lecter, we re perfectly taken care of.For the purpose of this discussion, we re going to forget the films and TV show fans of horror are purists in matters of the heart and Dr Lecter is very, very close to our collective hearts.When you look at the books sequentially, there is a marked progression of Thomas Harris s interest in Hannibal as a character In Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs , he sof an accessory villain in contrast to thegrotesque monsters which take centre stage He serves to put their crimes into context with his deceptively rational discourse with both heroes of the series, first, Will Graham, then, Clarice Starling In Hannibal , Dr Lecter is given free reign to cavort across two continents in the pursuit of his prey and obsession Clarice Starling Mr Harris s writing in this book is as close to perfection as you could possibly hope for, indeed, in its dark heart, the book is the finest example of what a refined horror novel can accomplish poetry, passion, pathos and finally, peace For the good doctor, at least.So, Dr Lecter, Hannibal the Cannibal, provides context But who provides context for the good doctor Hannibal s enduring power lies in the mystery that surrounds his personality and his almost vampiric demeanour He s a culinary genius, an exemplary physician, a mass murderer with a cultured taste for fine wines, and finally, a lover to Clarice Starling a polymath well suited to the myriad faces our Information Age lives force us to create But where we stumble in our face switching, Dr Lecter is smooth, as smooth as an electric eel sliding down his hapless victim s throat Our lives then, are the most fitting context for Dr Lecter.Mr Harris s first job as a crime scene reporter informs much of the narrative of the first and second books His two villains are revealed to us chapter by chapter, slow insight by tortuous revelation, even then, we are movedto pity them in spite of the horrors they commit Evil, in Mr Harris s novels, isthan ghosts in haunted homes, it is birthed in broken people, haunting the only places they have left to them the lonely recesses of their broken minds In the third novel, where the villains are the bureaucratic good guys of the FBI, Mr Harris shows how horror can also be banal, where office politics can hatch murder plots and the dishonourable discharge of honourable officers.Hannibal, as a character is like a really good bass guitar that s initially humming in the background but later forms the core of the entire song example We Are All Astronauts cover of The Mighty Rio Grande by This Will Destroy You Only, ONLY, a writer of Thomas Harris s narrative and stylistic brilliance could pull that off Mr Harris s rare power is perhaps best captured by his contemporary Stephen King a novelist whose work can be grasped entire not just by English department profs and tenure bound grad students but by the humble folk who entertain themselves with novels on airplanes and in overcrowded waiting rooms Mr Harris s prose is surgical in its precision, haunted with poetry that forms from every image he carves Like no other novelist perhaps, Mr Harris does not judge, only narrates So even in the face of high horror, we are lulled by his smooth tone, immersed in this vision of mind palaces and past and present folding into themselves, an infinite loop of snakes swallowing their own tails But trust me on this, after having read Mr Harris s work, you will come away exhilarated Like good, dark coffee, Mr Harris will not disappoint

    Man I m not even worried about grammar besides implying that this book is phenomenal There s a certain unique quality that singles out this book including that once you have seen the movie you will relate from the movie to the book It sets your mind in that kind of era.

    The entire series is based on a psychopath Doctor named Hannibal Lecter, who ironically, practiced psychiatry himself Over the series one can see that Dr Lecter is has a complex and organised mind He continues his practice of psychiatry with brilliance while he himself shows Cannibalism He is popularly known as Hannibal the Cannibal Ummm Yeah u read it right He eats humans Apart from that he is a charming gentleman As the series progress one gets deeper into his tale and you can The entire series is based on a psychopath Doctor named Hannibal Lecter, who ironically, practiced psychiatry himself Over the series one can see that Dr Lecter is has a complex and organised mind He continues his practice of psychiatry with brilliance while he himself shows Cannibalism He is popularly known as Hannibal the Cannibal Ummm Yeah u read it right He eats humans Apart from that he is a charming gentleman As the series progress one gets deeper into his tale and you can t help but think about him over and over again Chronologically, the order of the books is 4, 1, 2 and 3 However, I would suggest to read them as they were published As a fictional character Dr Lecter is perfectly built with minute details fitting Credits to the Author This is what makes the books gripping and absorbing.If you don t want to read all the books back to back it won t do any bad Though I think once you get started with it you won t rest until you know it all. .The series is full of grotesque and gross stuff like cannibalism with excessive details Read at your own risk

    The books are far better than the movies as is usually the case.

    tan incre ble como apasionante, harris tiene un estilo policial que puede arrebasar a maestros del misterio y esta trilog a es el mayor exponente para aclararlo

  8. Jamie O& Jamie O& says:

    Worth the price for Red Dragon alone, but it is great to have all three books Rising in the one set Red Dragon 5 Silence of the Lambs 4 Hannibal 2.5 That bloody ending is awful

  9. Mary Baldwin Mary Baldwin says:

    Having watched the Movies Hannibal and SotL many years ago, I had forgotten most if not all of the plot I read the three books back to back which is probably the longest run of fiction I ve done in a while.Red Dragon is my favourite of the trilogy, followed by Silence of the Lambs and finally Hannibal.The characterisation and procedural elements to the story are first rate, but by the time the plot hits Italy in Hannibal, it becomesof rushed commentary.Perhaps I would rate ithi Having watched the Movies Hannibal and SotL many years ago, I had forgotten most if not all of the plot I read the three books back to back which is probably the longest run of fiction I ve done in a while.Red Dragon is my favourite of the trilogy, followed by Silence of the Lambs and finally Hannibal.The characterisation and procedural elements to the story are first rate, but by the time the plot hits Italy in Hannibal, it becomesof rushed commentary.Perhaps I would rate ithighly had I read each individually

    I freaking love these books One of the few mystery authors I will re read again and again Harris is a masterful writer, with perfect descriptors, a delicious villian , and a true gift for language Pretty much perfect thrillers, all three And Brian Cox plays him pitch perfect with all his charm and swagger in the original movie Gimme his charm and swagger any day.
