    1. When it comes to Hannibal Lecter, I m like one of those music hipster douche bags that everyone hates because I ll snootily declare that I knew about him long before most people did and that he s sucked ever since he got really famous I d read this years before the book of The Silence of the Lambs came out and led to the excellent film adaptation that skyrocketed Hannibal to the top of pop culture villains Hell, I m so Hannibal hip that I d caught Brian Cox playing him in Michael Mann s adaptati [...]


    2. What made him do it, how was he crazy He did it because he liked it Still does Dr Lecter is not crazy, in any common way we think of being crazy He did some hideous things because he enjoyed them But he can function perfectly when he wants to Enjoyed it even the second time Let me break this down for you really quickly.Francis Dolarhyde goes a little cray cray and thinks he is becoming the Red Dragon Basically, he is going to take what is his with fire and blood Err, something like that Will Gr [...]


    3. WARNING Shameless Hannibal fangirl GIFspam.Since I ve become a fan of the TV show Hannibal, I thought it was appropo to re read the book that inspired it It s been years, and I d forgotten practically everything about both the book and the Edward Norton Ralph Fiennes movie Even so, it wasn t like I was reading it fresh Hannibal Lecter s become such a part of the pop culture that I had expectations, also intensified by the fact that Hannibal kicks total ass WATCH EEEEEET Comparing the show to the [...]


    4. Great book The Zodiac Killer Ross Sullivan Maybe Who knows Just finished watching a documentary decoding the Zodiac Killer A librarian, six foot two, two hundred and fifty pounds, very studious A cryptologist Bit of a loaner, very intelligent Played cat and mouse with the FBI No sexual motive Shy around females Left clues.Red Dragon Francis Dolarhyde The Tooth Fairy A very tall man, worked in photography, bit of a loaner, very studious, very intelligent Played cat and mouse with FBI No sexual mo [...]


    5. Now that I ve just finished reading this book, I feel the need to scrub parts of my brain with steel wool for the purpose of removing certain scenes that Thomas Harris has so rudely embedded there Thanks a bunch Tom Will Graham has the rotten luck at being really good at his job He is a profiler for the FBI and while he was on the job catching Dr Hannibal Lecter, Lecter caught him with a big sharp knife Will decides that was enough for him, so he makes the wise decision to retire But nooo Jack C [...]


    6. In which Jack Crawford thinks it s a good idea to get help from Will Graham in a just one case style A serial killed, named the Tooth Fairy at first has killed two families, and he s asking Graham s help in finding the killer before he strikes again Some help comes from the killer Graham caught before, one named Hannibal Lecter this is not the novel where he shows up a lot, but I can see how he became popular already from here.I have seen the older movie of this book, though I don t remember mu [...]


    7. Is it heresy to say that I liked both film versions better than I liked the book Probably, but it s true Thomas Harris isn t the finest writer in the world, and I think even he d acknowledge that, but he is full of great ideas, and Red Dragon is absolutely one of his best.I think the mark of how great his ideas are is that they almost always make a compelling transfer to the screen, and Red Dragon has made that transition twice once as Michael Mann s Manhunter and once as the faithful Red Drago [...]

    9. I think I recall Stephen King or somebody once writing that Thomas Harris could tell a great story, but that he was a terrible writer When I began this book, I could not agree Things start off very slowly, and the book s thriller suspense engine seems to be running flat The villain can we really call him a villain though is the only character that feels at all interesting and I guess Hannibal is good, but I prefer the Hopkins version in the films But after a little while, if you manage to hold [...]


    10. Meet Will Graham, the man known as the one who finally nabbed the infamous Hannibal Lecter, coined Hannibal the Cannibal by the press and public Almost killed in that line of glory, he has taken to retirement a peaceful existence with woman, child, and beachfront Crawford comes in to stir up the happy home, convincing Will to come into the dark shadows one time so that he can nab a new killer.After overdosing on the show Hannibal for two weeks, I was excited to dig into this book, hoping it wou [...]


    11. I was a huge fan of the underrated underappreciated tv show Hannibal Which served as a prequel to the Hannibal Lecter series It explored the relationship between Will Graham an F.B.I profiler and Dr Hannibal Lecter the gentleman cannibal serial killer I loved the cat mouse game between the two, it a much fascinating and complex relationship than the famous relationship between Hannibal Clarice Starling I hadn t watched the movie version of Red Dragon the one named Red Dragon, not the earlier m [...]


    12. Once upon a time, there was a little girl who saw The Silence of the Lambs I don t know what her parents were thinking letting her watch such a movie, but she never forgot the opening scene, with Clarice running She did not have the stomach to watch the gruesome scenes, and I don t blame her She wasn t even 10 seriously, she has some effed up parents But the little girl grew into a deranged teenager who fell in love with Hannibal Lecter So she read everything she could about him.But enough of t [...]


    13. I read Red Dragon over a decade ago, and, while I have no need to reread it I remember every little cringe inducing detail , it has popped up on my 17 Books for People Who Hate People Reading Challenge So here s a review.I don t think there s a single bad thing to be said about Red Dragon It s one of the only thrillers that ever truly scared me The killer and his becoming has stayed with me for ten plus years, and I firmly believe it s the best book in the Hannibal Lecter series Silence of the L [...]


    14. Like a poisonous snake on the attack, this novel bites again and again and again, leaving its victim shaken and disturbed I am somehow one of the only people in the known universe who had never read anything by Thomas Harris I ve remedied that, and am now moving on to this book s follow up, Silence of the Lambs Hard case mystery and bloody tale of the macabre in equal measure, Harris explores the sociopathic psychology without fear or hesitation Frances Dolarhyde and Dr Hannibal Lecter come aliv [...]


    15. Most people were introduced to Dr Hannibal Lecter by the Silence of the Lambs movie, but Lecter s legacy really began with this novel, and it s still my favorite of the series A book that manages to be terrifying not through gore or supernatural occurrences, but simply by exploring the fractured minds of the criminally insane People who only saw the Red Dragon movie and didn t read this yet should be warned in advance that Hannibal Lecter has little than a cameo appearance in this novele focus [...]



    16. I have been avoiding Thomas Harris books for years because I thought they would be too gruesome But really, this book isn t bad at all Red Dragon starts out as a mystery, turns into a character study, and then ends up as kind of a thriller I think Harris has kind of a ghoulish sense of humor which probably comes out the most in Hannibal Lector Yet if you re looking for Hannibal, he barely makes an appearance in this Mostly the book about is about a very sympathetic serial killer isn t that an ox [...]


    17. Well, I finished a day early Gave myself a week to read this 50 pages before the end, they got the guy and I knew there was no way I d be able to go to sleep tonight not knowing So, I read tomorrow s reading I ll have to catch up with my other books, but it was so worth it This book was a solid 4 stars I m not sure why it s not a 5, maybe it s because as a crime novel goesI ve read all of this before However, I m sure glad I finally started this series.Red Dragon is about two main characters The [...]


    18. El mejor libro polic aco que he le do.La participaci n de Lecter es muy buena, el hada de los dientes no es nada f cil de atrapar es muy inteligente y astuto.Me encant de principio a fin, uno de mis libros favoritos de siempre.



    19. A good, solid thriller a little over cooked in places but I love it for the character of Will Crawford and his double edged sword ability to be able to put himself in the mind of the psychos and criminals he is tracking Reading this years ago I remember where, Aix en Provence, France, was reminded of the place as I re read , I loved the character and the treatment of his gift This time was just the same although I found the book as a whole less convincing Was interesting to see Lecter again and [...]


    20. Mine is a late entry into the world of Hannibal Lecter, and I regret it, but better late than never Brilliant narration from Thomas Harris, kept me on the edge I was fervently perusing the pages, hoping against hope that the Tooth Fairy, pardon me, Dragon, would not hunt down Graham The pacing was perfect and never for a moment did Harris digress from the plot and neither it lead to the dreary repetition of psychological crime thrillers.Eagerly looking forward to read the rest of the novels in t [...]


    21. 3.5 stars.I m so glad I finally got around to reading some Thomas Harris, because I thoroughly enjoyed Red Dragon, the first in the famous Hannibal Lecter series I was already somewhat familiar with the plot, having seen the film adaptation Manhunter many years ago, but as I knew it wasn t wholly loyal to the source text, I knew this was going to have to be a must read.It took me a little while to get into this book, if I m being completely honest Thomas Harris clearly researches his subjects we [...]


    22. Basically everyone knows this book and what it is about, so no reason for a big detailed review for it.That, and the fact that I didn t care for it enough It was alright, it was engaging while I was reading, but really didn t leave much of an impression The movie had a much bigger impact on me.


    23. How many books with twist endings can I read and still be so shocked The ending of this book shook me to my core, what every great mystery book should do.Fair warning the violence in this book is graphic, so tread lightly.I don t have all much to say on this book, because I am still blown away and still unable to sleep through the night since picking it up Every little noise has been enough to make me jolt awake This isn t a book about an alternate universe where things are screwed up, this stor [...]



    24. So did I re read this through the rose tinted glass of television s greatest unconsummated and officially canon if you please love story Yes, yes I did Does it change the fact that it remains one of if not the the most brilliantly constructed examples of the literary thriller police procedural in modern literature No, no it does not I was first introduced to Dr Hannibal Lecter as I imagine many of us were via Anthony Hopkins tour de force and well deserved Oscar caliber performance in the brilli [...]


    25. More like 3 and half, rounded up.I m a big Hannibal Lecter fan yes, I know how that sounds, and I don t care and it occurred to me, after binge watching a bunch of episodes of the amazing series starring Mads Mikkelsen, that while I have seen the movie Red Dragon a few times, I had never actually gotten around to reading the novel Maybe because my favorite serial killer plays such a small part in it, and I like it better when he has center stage Maybe because I know the story so well, I tricked [...]
