10 08 14 The Silence of the Lambs - webcam shot

Finished - Aug 14th '10


Started reading it for the second time on the 8th of August 2010 after reading watching the film on a whim and getting through Red Dragon in a week. Finished on the 14th. It was good, better than Red Dragon I think, although they're both good. I'm demoting it to 4/5 (2 on the current system), maybe that's harsh, it's certainly a quality book in an unusual genre for me, it looked good in the Hall of Fame, but I think 4/5 is fairer, that's still a score for good books. 5/5 (3) is for the best.
