    I have nothing against making money Money is important and I don t begrudge anyone their coin That said Why Oh Why Did Thomas Harris write this lifeless drivel I respect a money grab, the studio wanted a Hannibal prequel so Thomas Harris decided to write it.But is this the best he could do I have a better back story for Hannibal in my head right now and its better than this I didn t even recognize the Hannibal Lecter I ve come to know and love over 3 novels, 2 movies I still haven t watched the movie Hannibal and a deeply underated tv show The young Hannibal in this book is...

    Ok, this is another book I had to read before I saw the movie I cannot believe I wasted money on it I even bought it in hardcover Sometimes I can be such a dunce.This has to be the worst pre quel sequel ever There is no reason to read this book, or see the movie But if you are a fan, like I am, don t feel guilty, do what you want.This is my least favorite of Harris s Hannibal Saga His reasoning for Lecter s particular taste is, get this, REVENGE How lame It doesn t seem like any real serial killer would start their rampage to seek revenge, although in his case, his childhood was emotionally disturbing As of still, I was not impressed, not to mention, a subplot involving an underground network of profiteering World War II criminals Lecter s enemies , specializing in stolen artworkcome on Oh, by the way, they didn t include this in the film Everything about Harris s young Lecter seemed too far fetched, from his medical studies and re illustrations for anatomy texts, to his Japanese geisha like aunt love interest who lives in Paris Even the concept that the then child Ha...

    Hannibal Rising by Thomas Harris is the 4th and final book in the series, but being honest I feel I need a Hannibal Rising part 2 as this book only takes you from Hannibal being a child in the war untill 18 and pumped up on revenge which to be honest I understand He s like a murderous James Bond It s then a leap to when we...

    Right off, I have to say that I love this book.I have been waiting, along with many others, for years to find out how Hannibal Lecter became what he became I wanted to know what caused his transformation into one of the most frightening killers in literature and the movies known to man.I was thrilled beyond words to hear that Harris was writing a new book and that a new movie based on the book was in production I knew that Harris was writing the screenplay Aside from that, I knew nothing I wanted, needed to know .Now that I do, what can I say except that knowledge is power.Despite bad reviews of the movie and the book , I loved HANNIBAL RISING It s a beautiful haunting work that stays with you long after you have read it It s not just a simple tale of revenge, but one of lust and wanting, of judgement and secrets that is beautifully written Harris uses quick short sentences to instill images into your mind, to show you the change Hannibal goes through to become what he is.Personally, I think others are none to pleased with Hannibal Rising mostly because they were expecting another Silence of the Lambs Hannibal Rising is really historical fiction, seeing as how most of it is set right after the second world war I knew that there couuld be no book like Silence of the Lambs,...

    I m right in the middle with this one I didn t love it but I didn t hate it either Some parts I thoroughly enjoyed and couldn t get enough of, while others quite nearly bored me to tears I was a little disappointed because the previous three books are just so damn good and this one lacks the spark the others had And I was expecting this to pick up where the...

    Number 4 in the Hannibal Lecter series.Dr Hannibal Lecter Hannibal the Cannibal is one of fiction most iconic and revered psychopaths How does one become a psychopath Is it born in us Is it our early environment that dictated who we become In this book you may not find the clinical answers to these questions but you will find out just why Hannibal the Cannibal is what he is and what drives him.There are quite a few negative reviews out there but this is not one of them.Maybe I m just another closeted psychopath but I can t help feeling a bit of empathy for Dr Lecter.The book starts near the end of the 2nd World War and recounts the early life of Hannibal with his parents and his much loved younger sister Mischa As the war draws closer to its inevitable end the acts of atrocities grow beyond belief No so than the horrors that Hannibal and his sister are subjected to Horrors so unimaginable that when Hannibal is found wandering near death by some soviet soldiers, not only, can t he remember what has happened but he no longer speaks Eventually Hannibal s uncle, who lives in Paris, tracks him down and takes his mute nephew back to Paris with him The uncle s wife The Lady Murasaki takes Hannibal under her wing and with much love, care and understanding Hannibal learns to talk once again As the years go by The Lady Murasaki become the only shinning light in Hannibal s world A light that Hannibal can t do with out and will go to any length to make sure it contin...

    This book is so fucking abysmal that I can t finish it It s a very rare thing for me not to get through a book even if it s a struggle I ll torture myself to get to the end because I get this feeling like I m cheating myself and the author if I don t If someone else gets through the 323 pages of wasted paper god bless you Every word reads like an exercise in how to bilk the public out of a couple of dollars with a character that accidentally became famous Hannibal Lechter is one of the great evil characters of modern American writing and cinema and the book Hannibal Rising does it s very best to destroy all of his appeal The whole draw of Hannibal Lechter is that he exudes menace and villainy while still showing a wholly respectable exterior The vile behavior bubbling underneath only peeks out and seemingly has no basis for its existence Lechter seems to be evil for no other reason then that he is In Hannibal Rising , Thomas Harris gives us some reasoning for his malevolence Hannibal goes mad because he is forced to watch some bad guys eat his little sister while trapped and starving in a cabin during the winter after the Nazis slaughter the rest of his family So instead of being the ultimate bad guy himself, Harris makes Lechter someone to sort of sympathize with Thus ruining one of the great evils of the last 20 years or so.Despite the total absu...

    Nothing happened to me, Officer Starling I happened You can t reduce me to a set of influences You ve given up good and evil for behaviorism nothing is ever anybody s fault Look at me Officer Starling Can you stand to say I m evil Thomas Harris, The Silence of the LambsHannibal Lecter is the bogeyman a dark and terrible figure from a child s nightmares who lurks in the shadows, waiting to pounce A big part of what makes him scary is his mystery, the fact that you don t really know who or what he is He owes us no explanation for why he kills and eats people he just does it He simply is In the first three books in the Lecter series Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal he is as powerful and unknowable as nature, a force of primal evil Hannibal Rising, a prequel that portrays Lecter s evolution into the cannibal serial killer we all know and love, mucks it all up by trying and failing miserably to humanize him It reduces one of literature s great monsters to a run of the mill victim of a lousy childhood Explaining him diminishes him I don t want to know what makes Lecter tick, I just want to watch him go Harris doesn t seem to understand this, and so reading Hannibal Rising is kind of like reading a Psychology 101 term paper with gratuitously bloody murder scenes.A grand guignol character like Lecter is bound to be over the top, but...

    It wasn t anything that I thought it was going to be, which was surprising This was a true prequel to the character of Hannibal, and I was rather wishing we could have a continuation of him as an adult, post Clarise, but it just wasn t to be.That being said, it was fine as a novel and psychological thriller, but not so much as a continuation of a franchise It mi...
