Publisher's Summary

In this highly-anticipated sequel to The Silence of the Lambs and the final book in the trilogy that started with Red Dragon, seven years have passed since Dr. Hannibal Lecter escaped from custody, seven years since FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling interviewed him in a maximum security hospital for the criminally insane. The doctor is still at large, pursuing his own ineffable interests, savoring the scents, the essences of an unguarded world. But Starling has never forgotten her encounters with Dr. Lecter, and the metallic rasp of his seldom-used voice still sounds in her dreams. Mason Verger remembers Dr. Lecter, too. He was his sixth victim and has survived to rule his own butcher's empire. From his respirator, Verger monitors every twitch in his worldwide web. Soon he sees that to draw the doctor, he must have the most exquisite and innocent-appearing bait; he must have what Dr. Lecter likes best. Powerful, hypnotic, utterly original, Hannibal is a dazzling feast for the imagination. Prepare to travel to hell and beyond as a master storyteller permanently alters the world you thought you knew.

Poorly abridged

I read the hard copy book and heard an unabridged version of Hannibal so I knew a good deal about what to expect. I did not like this abridgement. There are many key parts of the book that are left out. I think the ommitted parts do a disservice to the plot development. Harris writes a well researched and tightly woven plot with good character development. The ommissions, to me, are arbitrary and a distraction. The reader has a southern accent that does not lend itself to the Lecter's sophistication. (Although I believe he pronounced the Italian well.) He sounds, I'm afraid, a bit corn-pone. In fact, he sounds like what a male Clarise Starling might sound.

Abridged story and subpar performance

The story itself is great, but Audible is trying to sell you a bad recording. There's a noticeable background hum from ambient noise and the reader has an American Southern accent that is hard to listen to. I had a hard time finishing the book.
