Hannibal by Thomas Harris

Yuk!! I felt like I needed to take a week long shower after finishing this book. I think that the author has been caught up in the Hollywood-ization of his work, and so he simply cranked out the most violent and incomprehensible swill he could come up with to make into an also disgusting movie. Until this book, I've enjoyed all of Thomas Harris books. I almost wondered if this was a "[descriptive word] you" to all the greedy movie types. You know the old--"You want a movie, fine.. I'll give you a stinking movie..." Would have given it zero stars or a negative rating if possible....

(My first posted review, on Amazon, December 29, 2002 Nope..I never saw the movie when it finally came out..the book was just too awful.)
