The Silence of the Lambs

Book cover - The Silence of the LambsAuthor: Thomas Harris
Title: The Silence of the Lambs
Series: Hannibal Lecter (Book #2)

Goodreads page

My ratings: 3 stars out of 5.
My reading durations: July 31st – August 22nd, 2011.

Clarice Starling, a academy student, was the only one who was allowed to “talk” to Dr. Hannibal Lecter to use his genius to find a murderer who wants “a vest with breasts on it”.

The whole book wasn’t as gory and bloody as the film, probably because I was reading it, not watching. But the character development of the villain was great where as the character of Clarice Starling was vague in comparison and uncomprehendable.

Wouldn’t recommend to anyone who is searching for a light read.
