Book Review of Red Dragon by Thomas Harris
To begin with the development of the characters was well thought out and the way that Harris went back and forth between them all was good. For this book it is interesting with the scenes that he makes. It is about a killer that is being hunted by the FBI. The one thing that kept my interest was the killer himself as the way he was portrayed. The honest truth is that Harris made him human and someone that you could relate to. Over all the books that I have read over my life, this one tops in the top 10 for me.
Harris shows in this book that he is able to tell a good story that will keep the attention of his reader. The one thing that I found is that it was hard to put down for any length of time. With that said, the scenes that he shows throughout the book are well described for you to picture it. Some scenes are very dark I will say and it takes someone of a sound mind to be able to read it. If you are easily scared of to have nightmares I would recommend not to read the book because of some of the scenes. However, if you want to see the mindset of a true madman this book is for you.
In finishing I will say this for Harris is that this book was written in the beginning of his career. I am not sure where he got the idea for some of the characters, though they make the book.
The next book that I will be reading is The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
