Comment: This is the perfect book when it's raining outside, you got the lights on in your house and you're curled up on the couch with a hot cup of tea. This book is chillingly creepy. Hannibal Lecter is one of the scariest villains even created, but I thin Buffalo Bill is even creepier. His whole act and attitude is freaking me out. Clarice Starling is a strong female character, someone you can easily sympathize with and relate to. You feel her fear and strength. The dialogues between her and Hannibal are the strongest bits in the book. They captivate you from beginning to end. It's a fantastic book and now I think te movie is pretty true to it. Great read!
Rating: 5/ 5
