    it's extremely good, probably one of the best of the genre
    this and silence of the lambs are the real deal. genre slop but really skillfully, tautly written.
    then hannibal was entertaining but kinda bad and hannibal rising was straight up terrible in every way

      Correct. It's interesting to watch the progression of Lecter over the four books. Thomas Harris sort of falls in love with him and/or gets influenced by the films and the massive popularity of the character. In Red Dragon, Lecter extremely unpleasant. In Silence, he's a mixture — scary but not exclusively nasty. In Hannibal he's basically a flawed good guy. In Hannibal Rising he's the hero.

      The first two are the only ones worth reading.

        it's amusing how much the latter books frick up what is a really simple premise:
        hannibal lector is this guy who is super sophisticated and clever, but actually he's fricking evil and a cannibal. he's polite and knows culture but also is sadistic and amoral. it's not the most nuanced character ever put to paper but it's a decent enough one.
        so when you start making him the hero and giving him a dead sister motivation and shit it just fricks it up so much and destroys the whole concept. not to mention any other aspects of just how bad the latter books are

            So what is not genre? Any novel you decide to write is going to have a diverse array of characters doing mindless shit, a romance here or there, a murder mystery with horrific details, a tv show about science fiction. This moronic categorization makes no sense. Do you need a certain minimum number of pages dedicated to a specific category?

            Do not reply to posters who use "genre" disparagingly. You already know who you're replying to.

            you know there's 10 million rote novels about an evil serial killer and the tortured crime solving man has to conquer his demons to capture the bad guy right?
            it's a whole thing

            this is an example of that transcending the genre and being actual literature rather than just normie slop, or at the very least being extremely high class normie slop

            It is better than most of its ilk but that is about it.

            That's pompous and you're both moronic. Calling something literature isn't a mark of quality. That's the same as those dipshits that have arguments about what is and isn't art as if most art isn't bad, stupid, or misguided. Just say it isn't good. Or would that not be entirely accurate?

            I never said it wasn't good.

            This. Everything that a human creates is art. Whether it's good art or bad art is up to you

            Nice tautology.

        It's crime/thriller genre, moron. Some people also classify it as horror but I'd argue crime covers those bases.

    Unlike most books, I don't recall any point during reading where I was wishing we'd get back or skip forward to something more interesting. Consistently engaging. Recommended.
