The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling classic, now with a note by author Thomas Harris revealing his inspiration for Hannibal Lecter. A serial murderer known only by a grotesquely apt nickname—Buffalo Bill—is stalking particular women. He has a purpose, but no one can fathom it, for the bodies are discovered in different states. Clarice Starling, a young trainee at the F.B.I. Academy, is surprised to be summoned by Jack Crawford, Chief of the Bureau’s Behavioral Science section. Her assignment: to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist and grisly killer now kept under close watch in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Lecter’s insight into the minds of murderers could help track and capture Buffalo Bill. Smart and attractive, Starling is shaken to find herself in a strange, intense relationship with the acutely perceptive Lecter. His cryptic clues—about Buffalo Bill and about her—launch Clarice on a search that every reader will find startling, harrowing, and totally compelling. An ingenious, masterfully written novel, The Silence of the Lambs is a classic of suspense and storytelling.

4.0 The Silence of the Lambs
I didn't realize this was an abridged copy. I was so excited by how amazing Kathy Bates' voice sounded narrating the sample clip that I streamed the entire book over the course of two days. It's just over 3 hours long but I honestly could not tell it was abridged. Is it abridged because parts were...

Ja, für die angehende FBI-Agentin Clarice Starling ist sie das auf jeden Fall. Gerade noch hat sie in Quantico die Schulbank gedrückt, steckt sie schon mitten in der Serienkillerjagd nach Buffalo Bill, der Frauen häutet, und kommt zur zweifelhaften Ehre Dr. Hannibal Lecter zu verhören.Anfangs sollte...

5.0 Book Review
I read this quite a few years ago. The Silence of the Lambs is one of my all time favourite films. However, I still loved the book, despite having already seen the film.
