Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Lying on a cot in his cell with Alexandre Dumas's Le Grand Dictionnaire de Cuisine open on his chest, Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter makes his debut in this legendary horror novel, which is even better than its sequel, The Silence of the Lambs. As in Silence, the pulse-pounding suspense plot involves a hypersensitive FBI sleuth who consults psycho psychiatrist Lecter for clues to catching a killer on the loose.

The sleuth, Will Graham, actually quit the FBI after nearly getting killed by Lecter while nabbing him, but fear isn't what bugs him about crime busting. It's just too creepy to get inside a killer's twisted mind. But he comes back to stop a madman who's been butchering entire families. The FBI needs Graham's insight, and Graham needs Lecter's genius. But Lecter is a clever fiend, and he manipulates both Graham and the killer at large from his cell.

That killer, Francis Dolarhyde, works in a film lab, where he picks his victims by studying their home movies. He's obsessed with William Blake's bizarre painting The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun, believing there's a red dragon within him, the personification of his demonic drives. Flashbacks to Dolarhyde's terrifying childhood and superb stream-of-consciousness prose get us right there inside his head. When Dolarhyde does weird things, we understand why. We sympathize when the voice of the cruel dead grandma who raised and crazed him urges him to mayhem--she's way scarier than that old bat in Psycho. When he falls in love with a blind girl at the lab, we hope he doesn't give in to Grandma's violent advice.

This book is awesomely detailed, ingeniously plotted, judiciously gory, and fantastically imagined. If you haven't read it, you've never had the creeps. --Tim Appelo

4.0 von 5 Sternen An intelligent, absorbing thriller 15. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Note that I use the word "thriller" rather than "horror novel." Certainly there are suspenseful moments in Thomas Harris' RED DRAGON, and even a few moments that will make you squirm, but even at its most grotesque, the story is never too frightening to read, or too graphic to swallow. That's because Harris is more interested in accurately portraying a forensic investigation than in scaring the hell out of his audience (although, depending on the susceptibility of the reader, he just might have accomplished both).
Will Graham, an unofficial FBI man with a disturbing knack for tracking down serial killers, is persuaded to help catch a psychopath who has already slaughtered and desecrated two families. Graham, who successfully hunted down the brilliant psychiatrist/mass murderer Dr. Hannibal Lecter years ago, reluctantly asks the imprisoned Lecter for help. It proves to be a terrible mistake, and what began as another FBI case turns into a deadly game between Graham and Francis Dolarhyde, the elusive "Red Dragon." Harris expertly shuttles the reader's attention back and forth between the men heading the investigation and Dolarhyde himself, while forcing the reader to wonder who is really the hunter, and who is really being hunted.
The plot is admirably paced and constructed; each event follows logically to the next, without a single extraneous twist or development anywhere. RED DRAGON also functions effectively as a novel of character; almost every one is memorable, from the complex, introspective Graham to the smart, sympathetic Reba McClane. Of course, the most magnetic and charismatic personality of all is the incomparable Dr. Lecter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thrilling! 23. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Red Dragon. By Thomas Harris. Dell Publishing, May 9, 2000.
In Reviewing Thomas Harris' Red Dragon, I found it to be a riveting, clever, and highly believable story that would appeal to adults and older teens. The book captures the reader's attention on the very first page and holds it to the very last page. But more than simply holding the reader's attention, Red Dragon takes the reader on a multi-emotional ride that the reader cannot wait to start again after the last page is turned. Red Dragon is the story of, forensic expert, Will Graham's quest to capture a terrifying serial killer that hideously bites, tortures, and murders entire families. Graham enlists the help of the now jailed (but still dangerous) Dr. Hannibal Lecter to solve the murders, but that choice may prove to be a deadly mistake. The story is clever in that the forensic reconstruction of the murderer's actions is logical and believable. The behaviors of the criminal investigators, psychopathic killer, and the reporters are very realistic. I felt as if I was actually witnessing the events as they unfolded rather than simply reading a story. Finally, the way in which Harris takes the reader along with the forensic expert to solve the murders makes the reader feel as if he/she is actually "on the job" of the investigation. The reader then finds out about the serial killer's life and understands how he came to be such a monster. For a brief moment, I even felt compassion for him. Red Dragon is a must read for anyone who likes mental puzzles, is interested in the human psyche, and/or simply likes an emotional thrill ride. It will let you see through the eyes of the forensic expert and let you into the mind of the serial killer. Red Dragon is so realistic that the reader will forget that the story is only fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book only slightly flawed 27. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Through other reviews the plot of Red Dragon is pretty well spelled out. So I'll skip a synopsis. Red Dragon is one of the finest thrillers I've read in many years. The book is very well plotted, the characters are fleshed out, the pace is brisk, and the tension is kept up through most of the book and of course, as mentioned numerous times, this book marks Hannibal Lecter's first (albeit small) appearance.
A surprise to the book is the way so much time and back story is given to the antagonist/killer. We spend a great deal of time with Francis Dolarhyde, experiencing the childhood and early adult life that led to his present condition. This brought back very pleasant memories of some of author Robert Bloch's earliest novels, in which most, if not all the story was told from the antagonist/killer's point-of-view. Francis is not your typical serial killer of many of today's novels, where the killer basically is unsympathetic and whose motives are of your typical, done-too-many-times revenge variety. Francis, although a vicious killer, is also quite sympathetic in his way. Three quibbles. First, although a pleasant surprise on one hand, I feel that a little TOO much time was spent on Dolarhyde's background. We get the idea very early on, and the rest feels like excessive overkill. Second, the ending (don't worry, I'm not going to give it away), can easily be seen coming and is not a surprise.
Lastly, (and this is not a fault of the book itself) I'd seen the movie that this book was based on, MANHUNTER, before I read this book. Because the movie follows the book very closely, much of the additional delicious suspense that would have been there for me was missed. I knew what was coming.
