A More Sinister Evil..

Hannibal – Thomas Harris

Horror, fiction, suspense.

Hannibal Lector had escaped from being in custody and been living life to the greatest he can. Meanwhile, someone equally as sinister is hunting Lector down for revenge for his disfigurement. Clarice Starling, feeling guilt and wanting him to go back into custody has to first rescue Lector. The tables turn as it is Lector saving Starling as well as mending her. He leaves her in a good condition but as far as her partner goes, he was dissected and maimed horribly.

What can I say? Thomas Harris is the prince of horror. Harris knows how to write a damn morbidly creepy tale that gives one shivers down their spines. I had binge read this after dark. I know I should have taken note for book before this one but couldn’t help but to binge read this novel. I highly recommend one to first read Silence of the Lambs then this one.

Silence of the Lambs – Thomas Harris

Horror, fiction, suspense.

Rating 10/10

Clarice Starling, a FBI trainee, is in search of a sinister serial killer. This serial killer had kidnapped a woman, skinned her, left a moth in her mouth, and dumped her. His name is Buffalo Bill and he kidnapped another potential victim. Clarice must interview and get assistance from an associate of Buffalo Bill whom may give answers to catching Buffalo Bill before it’s too late. Doctor Hannibal Lector not only helps Clarice but somehow got into her head. Both the cooperation of Hannibal and Clarice, the woman is saved, and Buffalo Bill was brought to justice. Doctor Hannibal Lector escapes and writes to her.

I really love Thomas Harris for producing this incredible horror fiction. I had seen the movie as well and both versions are perfect. I wouldn’t suggest one to read this lightly because it gets heavy and complicated till the end. Do not read this after dark or one might get the chills and spooked by shadows. I sure did make that mistake and couldn’t go to sleep right away after binge reading this novel. I highly recommend the book if one is looking for sinister horror. This is one of my favorite horror fiction by far.
