Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The Silence of the Lambs, by Thomas Harris, is even better than the successful movie. Like his earlier Red Dragon, the book takes us inside the world of professional criminal investigation. All the elements of a well-executed thriller are working here--driving suspense, compelling characters, inside information, publicity-hungry bureaucrats thwarting the search, and the clock ticking relentlessly down toward the death of another young woman. What enriches this well-told tale is the opportunity to live inside the minds of both the crime fighters and the criminals as each struggles in a prison of pain and seeks, sometimes violently, relief.

Clarice Starling, a precociously self-disciplined FBI trainee, is dispatched by her boss, Section Chief Jack Crawford, the FBI's most successful tracker of serial killers, to see whether she can learn anything useful from Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Lecter's a gifted psychopath whose nickname is "The Cannibal" because he likes to eat parts of his victims. Isolated by his crimes from all physical contact with the human race, he plays an enigmatic game of "Clue" with Starling, providing her with snippets of data that, if she is smart enough, will lead her to the criminal. Undaunted, she goes where the data takes her. As the tension mounts and the bureaucracy thwarts Starling at every turn, Crawford tells her, "Keep the information and freeze the feelings." Insulted, betrayed, and humiliated, Starling struggles to focus. If she can understand Lecter's final, ambiguous scrawl, she can find the killer. But can she figure it out in time? --Barbara Schlieper

Pressestimmen

Razor-sharp entertainment, beautifully constructed and brilliantly written. Thrillers don't come any better than this. (Clive Barker)

A virtual textbook on the craft of suspense, a masterwork of sheer momentum that rockets seamlessly toward its climax... Harris is quite simply the best suspense novelist working today. (The Washington Post)

A psychological thriller so deftly woven and gripping that a reader can hardly get through one sentence fast enough to discover what's in the next. (Associated Press)

Format: Taschenbuch
Clarice Starling is trained to be an FBI agent. She gets an unusual assignment: she is to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, serial murderer and cannibal who is also a very sophisticated psychiatrist. Starling's task is to get another serial killer's profile out of the experienced doctor.
Dr. Lecter has as of yet refused to share information with other agents. Nobody really expects him to share with Clarice.
Unexpectedly, she can establish a contact to him which she tries to deepen when a senator's daughter is being abducted by the "current" serial killer. As time is of the essence, many people try to be successfull at the man-hunt, and almost all of them try to get Starling out of the case.
Starling decides on her further choices - and the reader gets an idea why Dr. Lecter thinks her egregious.

Von J. Enders am 22. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
When you hear about "The Silence of the Lambs", you probably start immediately to remember some scenes from the movie starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins. It is difficult to write something about a story that is so well known, basically by its adaptation for the screen which has been buried under a heap of academy awards.
There is hardly something I could add with respect to the other customer reviews. It is a well-written, gripping, interesting novel about the evil side of life. You probably know the story: A young FBI trainee is sent to "Hannibal the cannibal" with the aim of finding something about his (Lecter's) psychological situation. But soon it turns out that Hannibal Lecter knows something about a series of murders in which the victims are skinned and scalped. This case is the main interest of Clarice Starling's boss. The discovery of new victims, the kidnapping of the daughter of a U.S. senator and the jealousy of the director of Lector's prison make some complications which speed up the story and keep it going until the final confrontation of Trainee-Agent Starling with the murderer is reached.
Of course, it is impossible to adapt a novel for the screen without losing details. But especially in this "psycho" thriller, the thoughts, surroundings, and feelings of the people are of interest; and this "fine structure" is likely to get lost in the movie. Also in this case. The details of the figures are far more interesting (and are far better developed) than the struggle to find something out about the psychological motives and situations of the murderer. The latter was a tiny bit disappointing for me since I had hoped that more information would be contained in the book than in the film.
But nonetheless, this story is a page-turning roller-coaster into the depths of the human souls, not frightening, but terrifying.

Von Ein Kunde am 5. Juni 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Writers of "thinking people's horror" novels face an interesting challenge. Once a franchise viably captures the public's imagination, readers demand sophisticated, exciting innovations on a familiar theme. However, as the bar gets raised higher and higher, and as readers become de-sensitized, most series inevitably go stale or become far-fetched. A good example is the sagging work of Canadian author Michael Slade, who like Thomas Harris, launched a series based on brilliant serial killers with a flair for ingenious, over-the-top gorefests, replete with historical context and arcane erudition. The difference is, Thomas Harris takes a very long time between installments; and therefore, Harris fans are justified in believing they deserve better.
The Hannibal Lecter series reached this "what next" juncture in the last decade, with The Silence Of The Lambs. At the end of that novel, readers were left with the impression that the series would follow a Hannibal Lecter let loose on the world, free to travel and kill in new and creative ways, in diverse and exotic locales, while staying one step ahead of the law - a cannibalistic version of Anne Rice's globetrotting vampire superstars.
In writing Hannibal, Mr. Harris was clearly cognizant of the need to keep his series unpredictable. His choice of plot does accomplish that objective, but in ways that may leave fans feeling disappointed.
Instead of a dashing Scarlet Pimpernel of cannibalism, Hannibal Lecter 3.0 is a stuffy, academic type, ensconced in a low-key arts curator job in Italy, indulging his appetite for fine arts and foods rather than for people.

I'm assuming that anyone interested in this book has already seen the movie and read Red Dragon. Comparisons between the novel and the movie are inevitable. I shall give in to my nature and make them ... The differences between the book and the movie stem from three sources: Continuity with Red Dragon, additional storylines, and modified scenes. The most visible modified scenes in the movie are the infamous Goodbye Horses sequence and the finale. Goodbye Horses was drawn from two things: Dolarhyde's home movie in Dragon, and Gumb's "Cash For Your Trash" sequence in this book. The change doesn't hurt the story, unless you really like Q. Lazarus. The change in the ending is the result of both rewriting and continuity of Lecter's character from the previous book. Don't worry ... the Funny Quip (TM) is gone, replaced with something else possessing incredible sexual charge. (Or maybe that was just me ;) There's other minor changes: Several species of moths instead of one, Precious is developed more (I'm not kidding), and the death of Mrs. Crawford, which appears to try to set a mood of malaise but fails.
Instead of the tortured Francis Dolarhyde, we are given several people who are evil because they choose to be evil. That's certainly refreshing; while some serial killers were abused as children, some have simply gone flip-city. Moreover, there are several kinds of evil. Psychopathic, sociopathic, and some self-serving idiots who really need a come-uppance in the next book.
There's not as much gruesomeness as Red Dragon. Always the possibility of something terrible happening, but it rarely does. On that note, I always wonder at people who complain about the film being too violent, or gruesome, for them to watch.
