I have a love hate sort of relationship with this book At times I marvel at the intelligence and wittiness of Hannibal and other times I can t get my mind past through the things like trans phobia body shaming status of women which is highly exploited in this book I didn t liked the movie at all because of all those details they missed and to be honest we can t review this book without the honorable mention of movieWe will start with what I don t like then moving on with what I like so that we can end on positive note Body shamming for most of the people who have read the book will understand what I am trying to say but for those who haven t the killer choose girls with thick body type and they are constantly called by slang in the book which I sort of hated because for someone like me who have been body shammed for all her teen life it was pretty triggering Sexism Clarice starling the young beautiful FBI trainee yes there is a need to mention she was beautiful because how every time she meets a man he falls in love with her She was being objectified throughout the book and never once author fails to tell the readers that she is a WOMAN Writing the writing style was slightly boring at times to be fair by the time I finished reading it I still wanted answers and conversation I loved the constant bickering between Hannibal and ClariceMoving on with things I like about the book Character development A census taker tried to uantify me once I ate his liver with some fava beans and a big AmaroneThis shit is iconic and one who said it is even iconic yes my friends we are talking about HANNIBAL THE CANNIBAL LECTER One of the most iconic characters in history of literatureHe may be the scariest fuck out there certainly scarier than the supposed monster of the book Buffalo Bill but he just oozes style and knowledgeAnd not to forget Clarice Starling I really really like her character obviously not than Hannibal and I would have loved her if author constantly didn t reminded us that she is beautiful and a Woman Better than movie the movie to be fair is a whole lot of trans phobic the movie though at times mentioned that James is not transgender but it fails to make people understand why he is doing so By removing crucial scenes I really liked how book handle it betterThere is only one thing I liked about the movie ie the ending it was one of my fav endings I really really liked it You need not to read the books in order you can certainly read it before the first one but I would suggest to read the first one before because of some characters which are introduced in previous book and played important role in this one tooRecommended to everyone because it s still one of the most iconic and breathtaking book to be ever written

The Silence of the Lambs

Hannibal Lecter The ultimate villain of modern fiction Read the five million copy bestseller that scared the. 35 STARS Be very careful with Hannibal Lector Dr Chilton the head of the mental hospital will go over the physical procedure you use to deal with him Don t deviate from it Do not deviate from it one iota for any reason We both know you have to back and forth a little in interviews but you tell him no specifics about yourself You don t want any of your personal facts in his headBet you thought I was never going to write this review huh Well it turns out I just needed a good long pause to toss around my thoughts before attempting to wrangle them on paper There s a lot of pressure diving into a book that has been deemed a modern classic and you never know what side of the spectrum you ll fall on once you ve experienced such but I m pleased that overall this was a really enjoyable experience for me While I ve seen the movie over the years times than I can count somehow it didn t ruin my experience or opinion of the book Below there will be uite a few spoilers and discussion pertaining to specific plot points and comparisons from the book to film adaptation so if you haven t read the book or seen the movie and desire to know no specifics please stop hereI m going to start with all the things that I loved Obviously the book is way better than the movie due to the amount of detail and characterization that is lost in translation when you must condense a 400 page novel into a 2 hour film production The characters are richly developed flawed and their decision making process and solving of the cases in general are uite progressive considering this book was published in the 1980s The Silence of the Lambs is a wonderful example of how we can see glimpses of the villain throughout the book and still garner the compulsive pacing of a whodunnit One thing that felt odd to me was reconciling the fact that for the time this book was published the story is so progressive in some aspects and terribly disappointing in others If you ve seen the movie then you probably are aware of how at best the movie is borderline transphobic and this is due to the fact that they left out some crucial scenes from the book While the movie implies maybe once or twice that Jame Gumb is not really transgender they don t do a full job of explaining the why or how behind his choices in fact the movie leaves out his backstory entirely as well as a scene that was filmed but cut from the final production portraying the investigation into the transgender clinic In the book it is clearly shown how transgender people are a peaceful group and how our villain is someone who IS NOT transgender and was rejected for reassignment surgery based on multiple red flags that occurred during the initial application Also the doctor that the FBI initially tries to coerce into giving up personal information regarding his patients not only defends his patients but goes on the offensive to protect the minority group I really loved how the book handled this SO much better than the movieThe one thing that REALLY bugged me though is how you can have a novel written in the 80s that was LGBT forward but unrealistically fat shaming women from start to finish I figured I ll be ripped a new one for this and deemed a sensitive snowflake so I decided to mark specific passages for reference One particular example is in chapter 34 where Starling is poking around in Catherine s apartment after she s been abducted On page 242 in my copy there s an internal monologue where Clarice is flipping through her closet and notes that at almost 6 ft tall Catherine has sets of clothes in 2 sizes large and crisis fat It s stated that the first set are when she is 145lbs and the second at 165lbs For reference I have a friend who is 6ft tall and was constantly asked if she was anorexic and she weighed 185lbs I understand that point is that Buffalo Bill is kidnapping full figured women to fit his long term outcome but I had a hard time stomaching that we are told somewhere between 15 20 times throughout the book how OMG THESE GIRLS ARE SO FAT SO FAT SO FAT UGH DISGUSTING DON T THEY HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT AGAIN SO FAT and yet according to the specific height and weight details we re given they are medically and even socially NOT FAT We even get a few inner monologues where Catherine knows her full figured body is attractive but we re immediately reminded afterwards to NOT FORGET SHE S FAT AND UGH SO GROSS deep breath Alright I m done beating that to death Lastly aside from Jack Crawford s character I felt the movie was mostly cast well with the best being Ted Levine as Buffalo Bill Jody Foster as Clarice was a bit of stretch for me as the Clarice in the book isn t uite the pushover we see on screen but still not a bad choice I can wholly see why this is the book most refer to that initiated the mainstream craze for forensic crime scene novels as it is a really well written procedural and manages to feel realistic but not lose the page turning uality of suspense that it carries Overall I m so glad I read this one and look forward to circling back around to Red Dragon

    Call me a freak but I have a bit of a crush on Hannibal Lecter He may be the scariest fuck out there certainly scarier than the supposed monster of the book Buffalo Bill but he just oozes style and knowledge In fact he has so much style and knowledge that he doesn't come off as a ridiculous prick when he says things like 'A census taker tried to uantify me once I ate his liver with some fava beans and a big Amarone' or 'Can you

    So I read these books out of order I started with Hannibal which gives better background and fleshes out the character of Lecter much than the mess that was Hannibal Rising then read Red Dragon and finally this one Can I just say that I love Clarice Starling? I just have such a deep respect and admiration for her also Jodie why didn't you come back for the seuel?? I mean Moore was great but I don't like a br
