Title ~ Silence of the Lambs
Author ~ Thomas Harris
Genre ~ Crime Fiction/Thriller/Drama/Horror
Setting ~ Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Baltimore, Maryland. This is where
Clarice interviews Doctor Lecter before any deals are made to move him to any other hospital.
~ “The Cage” in Memphis, Tennessee. After Doctor Lecter spoke to the Senator about her
daughter, he was placed in The Cage on the top floor of the courthouse, being part of the deal
that he had made with Chilton.
Character Theme ~ A character theme of Doctor Hannibal Lecter is that he is much smarter and one step ahead of everyone. Lecter can also read into people very well and I feel that I can do the same because I can figure out people emotions, motives, and thoughts very easily.
Recommendation ~ I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in psychology, crime, or murder because that's basically what the book is comprised of. Although, you have to be intelligent enough to figure things out for yourself and read beyond the words written on the page because the author does not spell everything out for you. It would also be best if you have a vivid and darker imagination because it is more enjoyable that way.

Dr. Chilton recorded Clarice's offer...
