Hannibal Rising
Hannibal Rising | Thomas Harris
HE IS ONE OF THE MOST HAUNTING CHARACTERS IN ALL OF LITERATURE. AT LAST THE EVOLUTION OF HIS EVIL IS REVEALED. Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck. He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibals uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France, where Hannibal will live with his uncle and his uncles beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki. Lady Murasaki helps Hannibal to heal. With her help he flourishes, becoming the youngest person ever admitted to medical school in France. But Hannibals demons visit him and torment him. When he is old enough, he visits them in turn. He discovers he has gifts beyond the academic, and in that epiphany, Hannibal Lecter becomes deaths prodigy.

A bit late with the Halloween reads, but Halloween is all year round, right? Having devoured the rest of the series, it seems a bit strange to end with a young Hannibal, but for a while I thought I'd mislaid this book. Finally ready to revisit the ultimate prince of darkness! #currentlyreading #catsoflitsy #cats #horrorfiction #spooky #covercrush

Mehso-so

This one just didn‘t deliver like I hoped. We learn the story of Hannibal‘s upbringing and medical training and how his bizarre killing methods and cannibalism began. Unfortunately, I had difficulty staying engaged with the story. #MountTBR

How did I choose this book: I chose it because I was camping with my dad and didn‘t bring a book to read and it started raining and he told me that there were some books in the cupboard above his bed.
Write a brief summary of the novel: Who was the protagonist? What was the problem and how was the problem solved

The story of Hannibal Lecter's origin didn't captivate me. Critical plot points felt rushed and dull. There's something about the pacing and language that I couldn't get behind.

This book was the best of the series in my opinion. It allows the readers to meet and get to know Hannibal in a new dark light.
