Abridged and ruined

I am happy that I already knew this story from book and movie before I heard this audiobook, because it has been abridged so much that it makes no sense, the story simply does not work! Also I have to admit that Thomas Harris does not do a good job of narrating hos own book, as he uses an objective almost cold voice through out. I think it's time for a re-issue of this classic story and in the meantime I strongly advice anybody not familiar with the story to read the book and/or whatch the movie.

Half of the story is not there!

What would have made The Silence of the Lambs better?

The book and story are very good, this abridged version is horrible!

Would you recommend The Silence of the Lambs to your friends? Why or why not?


Any additional comments?

I was very disappointed.
