3.0 von 5 Sternen Good, to a point, 27. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Satanic Bible (Taschenbuch)
Well, I basically agree with nightferret's review and criticisms. However, I am not an atheist and I do believe in the need for spirituality, and I certainly don't think that all religions are bad. But I do, however agree with LaVeys' scathing social criticism. If nothing else, "The Satanic Bible" offers insight into our culture's hypocrisy. LaVeys' use of Freudianism, however,is questionable. Reading a lot of books on a subject doesn't make you a psychologist. LaVey was, perhaps, a very intelligent, articulate man, but he cannot honestly make to grandiose claim of knowing what "human nature" is. This book is a good observational view of society, often darkly humorous, but shouldn't really be taken as the cornerstone of a relgious movement.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Hmmm..., 12. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hannibal (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Well, my review pretty much follows the general consensus. I liked it a lot up until the last hundred or so pages, and then it just became so weird and unbelieveable that I didn't know what to think. Mr. Harris certainly isn't a bad writer, but I'm not sure what his point is with the ending. I thought there were too many extraneous sub-plots, I thought the ark with Barney and Verger's sister was wholly un-necessary. Although I thought the Italy scene was awesome, especially the part when Lecter kills Pazzi. For any of you that have seen "The Silence of the Lambs", the Pazzi death scene will be akin to the scene when Lecter suspends the guard from his cage with his guts hanging out, that scene will definitely stay peoples minds. The revenge plot was a little over-elaborate, although I can see how a bitter victim could have imagined such a "fitting" end to his enemy. I still don't think Starling would have ended up the way she did. Anyway, I'm hoping the movie will be a little better.
