Publisher's Summary

From the author of Silence of the Lambs, it's the terrifying tale that introduced the world to Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter. There's a serial killer on the loose who specializes in murdering innocent, happy families, and now it's up to FBI Special Agent Will Graham to understand the brutal killer's motivation and anticipate his next move. Graham needs to get inside the killer's mind; to do that, he needs the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the brilliant and vicious mass murderer whom Graham locked away years ago. The psychotic psychiatrist Lecter guides Graham deep into the Red Dragon's twisted world of demonic ritual and violence.

May as well just watch the DVD

I wish I had noticed how abridged this was before I bought it. But it is like someone describing the movie to you as it happens. Way too short. I may have to go buy the book now to see all the character development that I missed.

If you have seen the move, don't bother getting this audiobook.


It's a great story though. Wish there was an unabridged version.

Very choppy abridgement

This is basically the 'Cliff Notes' version of the book. Cut back far too much - this version tells you the basics, but there is absolutely zero character development.
