Additional Information about Hannibal
Portions of this page Copyright 1995 - 2006 Muze Inc. All rights reserved.
Unlike the previous books in Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter series, HANNIBAL serves up a personal history of the genius/psychopath/antihero that sheds light on his madness. Set seven years after THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, this next course features a more appetizing Hannibal living a quiet life of luxury in Florence, a down-on-her-luck Clarise Starling demoted to the Behavioral Sciences department of the Bureau after a failed drug bust, and a horrifically disfigured Hannibal the Cannibal survivor bent on vengeance. An Entertainment Weekly Worst Book of 1999 and a 1999 New York Times Notable Book, HANNIBAL appeared on the Publishers Weekly best-seller list for 21 weeks and was adapted into a 2001 film starring Sir Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal and Julianne Moore as Clarice.

You remember Hannibal Lecter: gentleman, genius, cannibal. Seven years have passed since Dr. Lecter escaped from custody. And for seven years he's been at large, free to savor the scents, the essences, of an unguarded world.
But intruders have entered Dr. Lecter's world, piercing his new identity, sensing the evil that surrounds him. For the multimillionaire Hannibal left maimed, for a corrupt Italian policeman, and for FBI agent Clarice Starling, who once stood before Lecter and who has never been the same, the final hunt for Hannibal Lecter has begun. All of them, in their separate ways, want to find Dr. Lecter. And all three will get their wish. But only one will live long enough to savor the reward....
"With the cunning, cannibalistic Hannibal Lecter, Mr. Harris created a pop-culture icon for our times, akin to an earlier era's Dracula or Sherlock Holmes. In HANNIBAL, he manages to imbue his well-known figure with freshness by playing to--and commenting on--our eagerness to dwell yet again on the most repellent aspects of human experience."
Wall Street Journal - Bob Hughes (06/11/1999)
"This narrative roils fitfully along a herky-jerky vector but remains always mesmerizing, as Harris's prose and insights, particularly his reveries about Hannibal, boast power and an overripe beauty. If at times the suspense slackens and the story slips into silliness, it becomes clear that this is a post-suspense novel, as much sardonic philosophical jest as grand-guinol thriller....[a] brilliant, bizarre, absurd novel."
"Harris' gaudiest, most lavishly over-the-top book yet. It's a purplish sick-puppy nightmare--Hitchcock by way of the Marquis de Sade....Surgical in its suspense, Wagnerian in its depravity, it's a baroque slaughterhouse spectacle of a novel--vast, pungent, pulpy, terrifying. It offers a mad carnival of demons."
"The readers who have been waiting for HANNIBAL only want to know if it is as good as RED DRAGON and THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. It is a pleasure to reply in the negative. No, not as good. This one is better. It is, in fact, one of the two most frightening popular novels of our time, the other being THE EXORCIST, by William Peter Blatty....This is authentic witch's brew, eye of newt and haunch of redneck, not chicken soup. HANNIBAL is a full-out, unabashed horror novel."
"An awesomely efficient thriller which is also a romance of sorts: elegant, exciting and chillingly imagined. Harris writes a lovely, loping prose which accommodates plot and research along with a lingering sardonic jokiness....An unqualified winner. Harris lives up to the hype."
