Thomas Harris– Hannibal Rising

Thomas Harris– Hannibal Rising

Hannibal Rising is the fourth book containing arguably the baddest bad-guy in fiction, Hannibal Lecter. It covers from his early childhood during WWII through to his graduation from university.

These are busy years for Hannibal and we get a good look at why he is the way that he is.

I doubt that this will be the last Lecter Novel and according to the gaps between the previous novels we'll be waiting until 2014 for the next installment.

This book would not be a good first Lecter novel to read but if you've read the others or seen the films you will enjoy it.
