Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1989

The high-profile film based on the original book lacked much of what this finely rendered audiobook possesses--subtlety, an informative and meaningful backstory, and reasonably believable characters. The film's shorthand robbed this story of a multitude of vital points, but enjoying Chris Sarandon's well-planned and controlled performance allows the whole story to shine through. Spare and horrifying, this double cassette is rare in that it can stand up to a repeat listening. Your favorite Hannibal Lecter fan will devour this with pleasure! D.J.B.
