Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 5/14/2011

    " A lot of people were disappointed with this book because of the sparse, lean writing style, but I loved it, and for the reason of the different style. It was very interesting to see how Hannibal became Hannibal. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ross | 5/14/2011

    " I know the checks were huge, but these books are wrong. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amildelacruz | 5/4/2011

    " I didnt like it it was dissaponting. I was expecting something more, considering that was the beginning of a troubled mind. I was expecting more about his psyche but nope! It was not enough good for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 4/10/2011

    " Not quite to the level of "Red Dragon' and 'Silence of the Butterflies (Lambs), but worth your time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terri | 4/8/2011

    " Thought it would be more revealing about his early life. I actually found it kind of boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 4/7/2011

    " It was a both interesting and scary book. You really get a feel for hannibal the person not just the monster he became, and in the end i ended up feeling sad for him because of what he had gone through. anyway it is an amazing book and i can't wait to read the next one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Logan | 4/6/2011

    " My least favorite book in the series. Decent beginning, lame ending. I struggled to get through the last quarter of the book. Im glad I read it to complete the series, but other than that, not worth it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lukasz | 3/27/2011

    " Absolute Classics. The studies of worst features of human nature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amie | 3/2/2011

    " Thought it was time for some pure entertainment.

    Read this in 4 days. It was good, and a page-turner, but not great. If I didn't know it was the prequel to Silence of the Lambs I might not have finished it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mimi | 2/28/2011

    " I couldn't ever finish this book. It was so unlike the previous installments of the series. It seemed like Mr. Harris was trying too hard to trump the success of the previous books that it was almost ridiculous.

    I tried to re-read it several times and could only make it about halfway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sobia | 2/26/2011

    " interesting...enough to grip u to the book...but still prefer silence of the lamb "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan | 2/24/2011

    " a prologue to the Hannibal series written way late, fun read on a winter day stuck in the house. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 2/21/2011

    " This book did not make a lot of sense to me. Hannibal's backstory didn't make a lot of sense in explaining his current "condition." I think Harris is trying too hard to make Hannibal a sympathtic character. "
