I have read and enjoyed this book. I was so looking forward to enjoying the Audible version on my runs but I am not sure if I can finish it. The narrators accent is so jarring, it distracts me from the story. This has never bothered me about an audio book before and I really didn't think it would make that much difference but it makes listening so much hard work! Please let me know if there is another version.
Would you listen to Hannibal again? Why?
Yes I would. It is not only well written, but it translates well into an audio book
What did you like best about this story?
that it was unabridged
Which scene was your favorite?
Can't really say the whole book was good
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
At least he pronounced a lot of the words correctly as some audible books have mispronounciations
I enjoyed this book and I also enjoyed the ending, which many fans did not. It did get changed for the film so people who have seen that first may be a little bit shocked by how differently the novel goes. I think the writing is excellent, the character of Dr. Lecter is as brilliant as ever and I would always give Thomas Harris books a try.
The narration was generally good although much of the time I struggled to understand what Mason Verger was saying. That is true to the story as Verger finds it hard to speak due to some medical problems, but I think for the sake of clarity it should have been toned down a bit in the reading.

Really good book, enjoyed the story. Most of the narration is excellent. However I couldn't understand what Mason Verger was saying and found this very offputting. The rest of the book was good enough to make me stick with it, but it was a bit of a shame.
