Free read ´ The Silence of the Lambs ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Hannibal Lecter The ultimate villain of modern fiction Read the five million copy bestseller that scared the. 35 STARS Be very careful with Hannibal Lector Dr Chilton the head of the mental hospital will go over the physical procedure you use to deal with him Don t deviate from it Do not deviate from it one iota for any reason We both know you have to back and forth a little in interviews but you tell him no specifics about yourself You don t want any of your personal facts in his headBet you thought I was never going to write this review huh Well it turns out I just needed a good long pause to toss around my thoughts before attempting to wrangle them on paper There s a lot of pressure diving into a book that has been deemed a modern classic and you never know what side of the spectrum you ll fall on once you ve experienced such but I m pleased that overall this was a really enjoyable experience for me While I ve seen the movie over the years times than I can count somehow it didn t ruin my experience or opinion of the book Below there will be uite a few spoilers and discussion pertaining to specific plot points and comparisons from the book to film adaptation so if you haven t read the book or seen the movie and desire to know no specifics please stop hereI m going to start with all the things that I loved Obviously the book is way better than the movie due to the amount of detail and characterization that is lost in translation when you must condense a 400 page novel into a 2 hour film production The characters are richly developed flawed and their decision making process and solving of the cases in general are uite progressive considering this book was published in the 1980s The Silence of the Lambs is a wonderful example of how we can see glimpses of the villain throughout the book and still garner the compulsive pacing of a whodunnit One thing that felt odd to me was reconciling the fact that for the time this book was published the story is so progressive in some aspects and terribly disappointing in others If you ve seen the movie then you probably are aware of how at best the movie is borderline transphobic and this is due to the fact that they left out some crucial scenes from the book While the movie implies maybe once or twice that Jame Gumb is not really transgender they don t do a full job of explaining the why or how behind his choices in fact the movie leaves out his backstory entirely as well as a scene that was filmed but cut from the final production portraying the investigation into the transgender clinic In the book it is clearly shown how transgender people are a peaceful group and how our villain is someone who IS NOT transgender and was rejected for reassignment surgery based on multiple red flags that occurred during the initial application Also the doctor that the FBI initially tries to coerce into giving up personal information regarding his patients not only defends his patients but goes on the offensive to protect the minority group I really loved how the book handled this SO much better than the movieThe one thing that REALLY bugged me though is how you can have a novel written in the 80s that was LGBT forward but unrealistically fat shaming women from start to finish I figured I ll be ripped a new one for this and deemed a sensitive snowflake so I decided to mark specific passages for reference One particular example is in chapter 34 where Starling is poking around in Catherine s apartment after she s been abducted On page 242 in my copy there s an internal monologue where Clarice is flipping through her closet and notes that at almost 6 ft tall Catherine has sets of clothes in 2 sizes large and crisis fat It s stated that the first set are when she is 145lbs and the second at 165lbs For reference I have a friend who is 6ft tall and was constantly asked if she was anorexic and she weighed 185lbs I understand that point is that Buffalo Bill is kidnapping full figured women to fit his long term outcome but I had a hard time stomaching that we are told somewhere between 15 20 times throughout the book how OMG THESE GIRLS ARE SO FAT SO FAT SO FAT UGH DISGUSTING DON T THEY HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT AGAIN SO FAT and yet according to the specific height and weight details we re given they are medically and even socially NOT FAT We even get a few inner monologues where Catherine knows her full figured body is attractive but we re immediately reminded afterwards to NOT FORGET SHE S FAT AND UGH SO GROSS deep breath Alright I m done beating that to death Lastly aside from Jack Crawford s character I felt the movie was mostly cast well with the best being Ted Levine as Buffalo Bill Jody Foster as Clarice was a bit of stretch for me as the Clarice in the book isn t uite the pushover we see on screen but still not a bad choice I can wholly see why this is the book most refer to that initiated the mainstream craze for forensic crime scene novels as it is a really well written procedural and manages to feel realistic but not lose the page turning uality of suspense that it carries Overall I m so glad I read this one and look forward to circling back around to Red Dragon

Free read ´ The Silence of the Lambs ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook World silent The Silence of the Lambs A young FBI trainee An evil genius locked away for unspeakable crimes. Call me a freak but I have a bit of a crush on Hannibal Lecter He may be the scariest fuck out there certainly scarier than the supposed monster of the book Buffalo Bill but he just oozes style and knowledge In fact he has so much style and knowledge that he doesn t come off as a ridiculous prick when he says things like A census taker tried to uantify me once I ate his liver with some fava beans and a big Amarone or Can you smell his sweat That peculiar goatish odour is trans 3 methyl 2 hexenoic acid Remember it it s the smell of schizophrenia uite the contrary he sounds cool saying these things Sophisticated even In this and many other ways Dr Lecter is so utterly fascinating that you ll still find yourself rooting for him after he has committed several heinous but brilliant murders hoping he ll stay out of the hands of the police and live out his life in freedom Now that s uality writing for youAs you can probably tell from the above I like The Silence of the Lambs which is to say the book on which the movie was based Except for the fact that Harris makes Clarice rather stupid and that the dialogue in the book is a bit too clever and masculine for its own good it s a solid and exciting will they find him in time to save the girl story a page turner if ever there was one The characters aren t terribly easy to identify with but that s all right because for one thing they re cool had I mentioned that yet and for another they all have a clearly defined uest They don t necessarily have the same uest but hey that only serves to increase the tensionIn some regards the book is better than the film Remember those stupid anagrams from the movie They re not in the book except for the bilirubin one which I actually uite like The book makes its connections in a much logical less what the fuck ish way It also has a realistic romance though not necessarily a better one On the down side I think Thomas Harris must have kicked himself for not having come up with the closing line of the film I m having an old friend for dinner himself In my opinion it s the best closing line in cinematic history unmatched by the ending of the book Still it s a satisfying read Very satisfying As satisfying as the movie and that s saying a fair bit Yes that s what he says in the book Not a nice Chianti I ve been reliably informed by those in the know I myself do not actually drink wine that Amarone and Chianti are not in fact the same thing Chianti does sound better than Amarone in this line doesn t it In the book Dr Lecter tells Clarice in one of their first interviews that Billy has kidnapped large chested Catherine Martin because he wants a vest with tits on it He then goes on to say in their next meeting that Billy is making a girl suit out of real girls And despite these incredibly obvious clues which cannot be rude jokes on Lecter s part as he s far too sophisticated to make such rude jokes it takes Clarice who is supposed to be really intelligent the entire rest of the book to figure out what it is that Billy wants from his victims They wisely changed that in the movie where Clarice doesn t have her entire uest spelled out for her right at the beginning I ve never met any women who speak to each other the way Clarice and Ardelia do Then again I ve never met any brilliant FBI trainees so what do I know Perhaps they do speak to each other like that at uantico I guess I ll never find out Anyone out there have FBI trained friends Anyone Bueller
