Superb and chilling
When you listen to an audiobook which has such an iconic film version, I feel sorry for the narrator however in this case, Frank Muller absolutely pulls it off.
Yes Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster made these characters instantly recognisable and while Muller certainly does draw on these performances, he doesn't make it a pastiche, instead adding some of his own nuances whilst still retaining he characters that we know and loathe (love?)
The story itself is excellent and remains chilling even after 25 years, and is a throughly good listen

Brilliant - what a treat!!

Not that I recall but I will look for more.

ERRRR Its been done!

really enjoyed this, a real thriller
I haven't watched this for many years and was interested to see if it was similar and if it would be as thrilling, it was, probably more so. I will be listening to this again, although listening to all 4 Hannibal books in a row is slightly paranoid making... but good fun.
