It's not that this book is bad, because it really isn't. It's written well, it has a good plot, good pacing, etc. But it's a really poor prequel for the Hannibal Lecter series. Hannibal Lecter is not a character you really want to sympathize with, and this book feels like it's trying to make you sympathize with him. In addition to that, it doesn't really offer any explanations as to why he still murders people. It tells the story of how he took revenge against those who ate his sister, but really gives no indication that he has any desire/intention to continue killing.
It just didn't seem to really explore the psyche of Hannibal Lecter does, and doesn't really feel like a good origin story. (Unlike the Hannibal TV Series, which is a great prequel to the books.) But Hannibal Rising is still a good book in its own right, if you can separate the expectations a prequel brings along. ( )

I've always wanted to know how Hannibal became Hannibal. He was always exceptional but the horrors of WWII change the course of his life and color of his soul. He has a chance at redemption with his first love but the life of revenge is too strong. Answers a lot of questions about his future choices. ( )

I picked this up at the second hand store. Overall, I have liked Harris's Hannibal Lecter novels, so I figured I would read this one as well. I will admit I was a bit apprehensive given a lot of bad reviews. Most of the reviews I saw were along the lines of "now that we know how Hannibal became what he is, the mystery/mystique is gone." Others griped that revenge did not seem to be that much of a reason to shape the man.

Well, I say that revenge can be a great reason to become a killer. And I think if anyone went through what Hannibal Lecter went through as a child at the end of World War II, they might end up a little "unstable" as well. Having said that, the book is not Harris's finest. The prose is ok, and once Hannibal gets settled, and his enemies reemerge, it is a matter of time before he starts getting rid of them. So,in that sense, it is predictable. But we also get a bit of a glimpse where the sophisticated character gets his high tastes and sense. For me, I found interesting how the memory palace begins to take shape. Makes me wish I could build my own memory palace sometimes. So, not the greatest novel of this series, but it is readable. ( )

It wasn't anything that I thought it was going to be, which was surprising. This was a true prequel to the character of Hannibal, and I was rather wishing we could have a continuation of him as an adult, post-Clarise, but it just wasn't to be.

That being said, it was fine as a novel and psychological thriller, but not so much as a continuation of a franchise. It might have been more enjoyable had it been a character of a different name.

You know how us readers can get. We want what we want and get pissy when we're thwarted. I know I am, but fundamentally I found it enjoyable.

I tried so hard to finish this book, but it just did not hold my interest. The pace was too slow and there were just so many unimportant details. It's such a shame because I loved the rest of the series. ( )

When last seen in the novels of Thomas Harris, Dr. Hannibal Lecter -- clinical psychiatrist, criminal mastermind and grisly gourmand -- was dancing with former FBI agent Clarice Starling on a terrace in Buenos Aires. The discomforting finale of "Hannibal" (1999), which suggested that Clarice had succumbed to Lecter's chemicals, if not his charm, was rejected in the movie version in favor of a more (dare we say?) palatable confection. Now Harris eludes the dissonance of those alternative endings by writing a suspense-driven prequel, "Hannibal Rising": a portrait of the cannibal as a young man.
 
Thomas Harris owes Anthony Hopkins a debt that he may never adequately repay. Before Hopkins starred as serial killer Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter in the film adaptation of Harris' thriller The Silence Of The Lambs, Harris was already a popular author, with two books under his belt, both adapted to film. But it took Hopkins' sublimely creepy portrayal to catch audiences' imaginations and assure that they'd lay out cash for any book about Lecter, no matter how hacky, tacky, and ill-conceived. The latest, the Silence prequel Hannibal Rising, is at least a step up from the wallowing, pointless grotesqueries of 1999's Hannibal; this installment has its irritating quirks and its notable lacks, but at least it points its Grand Guignol tropes to some purpose.
 
It really is a shame about Thomas Harris. Red Dragon, published in 1981, and The Silence of the Lambs, which came out seven years later, are among the greatest thrillers of our time.
 
At a certain point, great pop-culture creations tend, like Frankenstein's monster, to slip their bonds and escape from the control of their progenitors. And Thomas Harris, who dreamed up the pre-eminent fictional boogeyman of our time, seems to recognize that Hannibal Lecter, the homicidal epicurean psychiatrist he brought into being as a plot device and a good sick joke in his 1981 thriller, ''Red Dragon,'' isn't quite his anymore.
 
The new Thomas Harris novel goes by the title of “Hannibal Rising” (Delacorte; $27.95). This has the effect of making Dr. Hannibal Lecter sound like a soufflé, a fever chart, or a storm—all comparisons that the good doctor, who prides himself as an epicure and a force of nature, would be bound to welcome.
