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!!

What did you like most about The Silence of the Lambs?

I enjoyed this so much - even though I have seen the film and read the book, I still found something new in the audio book. The story is one of the best and is added to by the quality of the narration Great stuff!!

The story is a modern classic. Starling is a true heroine.

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.

Brilliant<br />

We've all seen the film, and probably read the book, so expectations are high. This gripping thriller, exquisitely read, never disappoints. Highly recommended.
