What the community says about The Silence of the Lambs
- "I have read Silence of the Lambs and seen the movies so I can attest to it being a very good solution for the topic of fast-paced mystery books. The book is very enthralling and thrilling. The mystery is definitely a quintessential one. It is suspenseful and fast-paced, I know I could not stop turning the page when I read it. "

in What are the best thriller books"Normally I prefer books to their movie counterparts, but not in this case. Silence of the Lambs is a much better film than piece of literature. Maybe it's just because it's dated, but I just couldn't get through the book. It wasn't as suspenseful as the movie, and at times it seemed really dull.""I was looking for a good scary summer read and came across the silence of the lambs books. Written by Thomas Harris these books define the genre of Thriller. If you liked the movies you'll love the books, they'll get your blood racing and the pages turning. Definitely worth reading!""After searching for a good thriller for quite some time, I was pleasantly surprised by The Silence of the Lambs book that was suggested by this website. It turned out be just what I needed. I was able to captivate and mortify my small audience when I was reading it to them. "
- "You know a lot of the iconic scenes from the excellent movie with Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, but put them aside and you'll be thrilled even more by the amazing book. It's taut and well written, and is an extraordinary look inside the world of professional criminal investigation. Gripping until the very last page."
