Did anyone notice Thomas Harris did not mention Hannibal's six-fingered hand in Hannibal Rising? I would think growing up with such a weird disfigurement would have been mentioned?

For quite some time, i have been incredibly fascinated with the character Hannibal Lecter. This sacred literature has proven to be a chilling revelation to his past and i enjoyed every sentence. i recommend it for anyone who enjoys the mystery of a murderer's reasoning.

This fourth entry into the 'Hannibal Lecter' series (even though he is just a supporting character in the first two entries, 'Red Dragon' and 'The Silence of the Lambs') tells the story of Lecter's childhood and the events that transpired to turn him into a notorious serial killer. Good idea, bad execution. The biggest problem is the boring story, which takes far too long to get started and never really pays off. Hannibal as a young man is subjected to various atrocities during the WWII Nazi occupation of his home country of Lithuania, and he spends the rest of the story exacting his revenge. At the end, we still aren't sure why Hannibal will eventually become a violent, dangerous serial killer, although we do feel sorry for him. Pity, unfortunately, is a far cry from terror, which is what we really want. Hannibal is the villian we love to fear, and the last two books have too much defanged the 'Hannibal the Cannibal' mythos that served the series so well. Author Thomas Harris seems bored with the characters and the story -- it is said that Harris was forced to write this book (and the screenplay for the movie) at the demands of producer Dino De Laurentis, who owns the movie rights to Hannibal Lector and claims that he would have made a movie about Lector's origin with or without Harris' help. the world of Hannibal is losing its luster -- it might be time for Harris to move on.

Thank you Mr. Harris for giving me closure to the whole Lector mindset. The atrocities done to young Hannibel made me cry so hard and still haunt me today. This book was needed to explain the Dr's evil and he did it brilliantly. This part of the series allowed me to revisit the other books/movies and root for Dr Lector......all those f$ckers deserved what they got.

Well researched, well written, well presented; I have read the making, educating and the development of a raging, murderous, psychotic killer turned loose on Paris and then the world. How many are there?

I bought this book thinking it was the first one in the series, and well no... as you all might know and what I learned is that this is the last one. Is has some pretty good naration parts but the story seemed too forced. I barely started enjoying it after chapter forty two (it has sixty chapters). I look foward in checking out Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, because I'm almost sure there better than this one. It honestly felt quite desperate, but the ending part was a relief in compare with the rest of the book.

THIS WAS A REQUESTED GIFT ITEM. If it's anything like the" Silence of the Lambs" this should be a good read

Hannibal Lecter is my favorite killer of all time...From watching the movie, to reading the book, just makes me love him that much more! To me Hannibal is just this character that moves me. His sophistication and high education, yet the way he looks into your soul, make you think..Whats going on in his head? This book explains that very question...Hannibal Lecter is my personal hero! MUST READ. THEN MUST READ AGAIN!!!
