Deep in the Snows
So. I purchased my copy of Hannibal Rising and spent the weekend getting into Harris's groove. I want to save most of my thoughts for a more extensive entry, but so far--I'm having a pretty good time. The novel's preliminary action takes place in WWII-era Lithuania, and details the fall of Castle Lecter to the Nazis, young Hannibal's early education, and such like. As per usual for Harris, the prose reads quite swiftly. If I didn't have a million part-time jobs, I could burn through the whole novel in a day or so. As it is, I'll have to unfold my thoughts bit by bit. Sorry for the pace, but this blog is called Slow Match. Ha!
