    " Loved it. Makes the movie look plain at points, and viceversa. I have mixed feelings, but love both. "

    " Although I read this book (twice) years ago and have seen the movie many times, the character of serial killer Hannibal Lecter still makes my blood run cold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Krista | 1/21/2014

    " Another that goes on the list of the book is soooo much better than the movie, as will all of the books that go along with this one. I love the freaky, insane genious of Dr. Lector and I really believe that he had as true feelings as much as a person like him is able for Clarice. "
