I didn't realize that this was an abridged version until the outro. I suppose I could have figured that out from the length of only three hours, but anyway this was severely disappointing. Chris Sarandon's audio performance was dreadful. In many instances he included unnatural pauses in words, as if the word in front of him were hyphenated between two pages. This was also disappointing. I mean, I obviously wasn't expecting Prince Humperdinck, but it really could have been better than it was.

I worked at Dell/Delacorte, part of Bantam Doubleday Dell at that time, when this edition came out. My former roommate did the dirty and introduced me to this author a few years before. I decided this one couldn't be as scary and read it on New Year's Day.

Holy mother of dog.

From that day to this, I have not read, watched, or listened to anything else by Thomas Harris. And I never, ever will.

But this one didn't make any sense either. ( )

I read this because Otto Penzler said it was the best mystery book of all time (or something similarly superlative). It may well be. I don't read enough of the genre to have an opinion. ( )

But I have to acknowledge my gut response to Mr. Harris's thriller. It hits us in our outrage, and titillates the part of us all that would like to get rid of evil with a gun.

Epigraph
One can only see what one observes, and one observes only things which are already in the mind. - Alphonse Bertillon
. . . For Mercy has a human heart, Pity a human face, And Love, the human form divine, And Peace, the human dress. - William Blake, Songs of Innocence (The Divine Image)
Cruelty has a Human Heart, and Jealousy a Human Face, Terror the Human Form Divine, and Secrecy the Human Dress.
The Human Dress is forged Iron,
The Human Form is fiery Forge.
The Human Face a Furnace seal'd,
The Human Heart its hungry Gorge.
-William Blake, Songs of Experience
