Safely received with thanks. The book arrived at the beginning of the week, but I was out of town so I only got to pick it up today from the post office.

I grew up with Silence of the Lambs and the rest of the Hannibal movies. Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy's performances in the TV series were astounding. It was about time I met the books.
Red Dragon creates a visceral sense of dread without being overly gory or sexual, even when describing chaotic crime scenes. Fear is filtered through the characters' points of view so that third person narrative is unexpectedly gripping. Will's immensely powerful and tormenting empathy is the main tool in achieving this.

Trivia: There are actually two paintings: The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun and The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in Sun. Harris had a notorious slip here: he singles out the former, but from the description he obviously meant the latter.

Thank you so much for sharing! The book will try to find itself a new home via the European Mystery / Thriller / Horror VBB.
