Hannibal Rising Reviews


"Praise for Hannibal Rising: Superbly done...You know the destination, but that doesn't mean the journey isn't bracing... Fans of Harris will be delighted with Hannibal Rising. I was." * Sunday Telegraph *
"A mesmerising read... Evoked with masterly skill. The sheer brio of the storytelling is irresistible, and then there's the flesh-shredding horror - nobody, but nobody, does that as chillingly as Thomas Harris." * Daily Express *
"A wonderfully murderous climax...Hannibal Rising is spot on...This novel is a sure-fire bestseller" * Independent on Sunday *
"Often chilling...always entertaining...Lecter remains a powerful, iconic creation" * Observer *
"Prepare to be thrillingly nauseated...As Hannibal goes on his fiendishly imaginative rampage, one turns the pages faster, time flies, and one is sorry that there aren't more pages to turn" * Sunday Times *
