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.

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.
