Looking for something to read over the weekend ?
Nothing on your book radar that is screaming ‘read me’?
Take a look at my Friday Favorite. It may be new. It may be old. It may be written by a famous author, or by someone you have never heard of. But wherever in the spectrum it falls, it will be a book that is special to me, one that has captured both my imagination and my heart.
I have lost count of the number of times I have read The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris. It is definitely in my top ten books forever list.
‘I read about it when it happened.’
‘He gutted Will with a linoleum knife when Will caught up with him. It’s a wonder Will didn’t die. Remember the Red Dragon? Lecter turned Francis Dolarhyde onto Will and his family. Will’s face looks like a damned Picasso drew him, thanks to Lecter. He tore a nurse up in the Asylum. Do your job, just don’t ever forget what he is.’
‘And what’s that? Do you know?’
ABOUT THIS BOOK: There’s a killer on the loose who knows that beauty is only skin deep, and a trainee investigator who’s trying to save her own hide. The only man that can help is locked in an asylum. But he’s willing to put a brave face on — if it will help him escape.
MY THOUGHTS: This was a re-read for me. I have lost count of how many times I have read and enjoyed this book. Every so often I take it off the shelf, put it on my bedside table and dip into it, savouring each bite.
The movie is good, damned good, but the book is better.
If you haven’t read this yet, I recommend you start with Red Dragon. If you have, pick it up for a re-read.
Enjoy. . .
