Thomas Harris


anyone in here any thoughts or ideas on main themes within the Hannibal triology?

'Fraid I havne't read them, although I have seen the films (except Manhunt). I read Black Sunday. Pretty good book. An exception to the rule of thrillers generally not thrilling me. : )
Kabakov was a good main character, and Lander was a great villain. I loved the bits about his backstory - they made me feel for the badguy, which is something not many authors seem to bother with.

Surprised more people haven't posted here.

Why aren't there people posting about the great Thomas Harris? This is pathetic. I love Hannibal the book, it was so very superior to the movie. Did anyone like the movie, or actually like it better? Anthony Hopkins is amazing, don't get me wrong, but they changed all the wrong things in the movie. There is no reason for the ending to be altered the way it was.

Out of the three books, Hannibal is hands down the best. Red Dragon is second, and SOTL is third. SOTL is great, but Lecter is the backbone of every good book. I don't think that Harris really has Lecter polished at this point yet. Hannibal just becomes amazing in his book. There's no way that's not the best.

I am reading Hannibal Rising now and I don't want it to end!
