Description

Hannibal Invite Hannibal Lecter into the palace of your mind and be invited into his mind palace in turn.  Note the similarities in yours and his, the high vaulted chambers of your dreams, the shadowed halls, the locked storerooms where you dare not go, the scrap of half-forgotten music, the muffled cries from behind a wall.

In one of the most eagerly anticipated literary events of the decade, Thomas Harris takes us once again into the mind of a killer, crafting a chilling portrait of insidiously evolving evil--a tour de force of psychological suspense.  

Seven years have passed since Dr. Hannibal Lecter escaped from custody, seven years since FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling interviewed him in a maximum security hospital for the criminally insane.  The doctor is still at large, pursuing his own ineffable interests, savoring the scents, the essences of an unguarded world.  But Starling has never forgotten her encounters with Dr. Lecter, and the metallic rasp of his seldom-used voice still sounds in her dreams.  

Mason Verger remembers Dr. Lecter, too, and is obsessed with revenge.  He was Dr. Lecter's sixth victim, and he has survived to rule his own butcher's empire.  From his respirator, Verger monitors every twitch in his worldwide web.  Soon he sees that to draw the doctor, he must have the most exquisite and innocent-appearing bait; he must have what Dr. Lecter likes best.  

Powerful, hypnotic, utterly original, Hannibal is a dazzling feast for the imagination.  Prepare to travel to hell and beyond as a master storyteller permanently alters the world you thought you knew.

    this book is one of the most intelligently written pieces of literature i have ever come across. i have loved this entire series, constantly intrigued by dr lecter. this book made a great end, the book ended exactly as i would have ended it. not to say that it was predictable in the least. it will be difficult to find a book that keeps me as interested as this one. highly recommend

    Hannibal is now one of my favorite books. The ending completely took me off guard, but I still loved it but i don't know why the movie put a different ending in. I read it in a day (with no sleep) because I couldn't stop reading it. I hope Thomas Harris writes a new book. :D

    As the final chapter in the Hannibal series, it seems this book takes a deviant path from the psychology of the first two books and replaces it with a violent romp through extravagant locales. While this is a thrilling story, the returning characters from prior novels seem to have changed so much as to be nearly unrecognizable. Add to this an evil antithesis to Hannibal and this book seems determined to separate itself from it's predecessors and stand alone. It does accomplish this, but not without the casualty of the brilliance required by Graham in Red Dragon or Clarice in Silence of the Lambs to apprehend the killer. This is mainly a tale of vengeance against Hannibal by a former, now obsessed, victim and a slightly twisted love story between two characters that just does not fit.
