Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs - Thomas Harris

I threw this book in the garbage three times while reading it because it was so horrific yet every time I pulled it back out and dug into it so I could find out what happened next.

 

I only just watched the movie this year (2012) because I was too afraid to see it -- it's excellent and I liked it much better than the book probably because it didn't scare or horrify me ( this is not a criticism of the book which succeeded brilliantly in terrifying me).
