It is unofficial Hannibal week

here at Light Reading!

The book stars in John Crace's "digested read" feature today at the Guardian. I often use these as a gauge of whether I want to read some much-hyped bestseller or not, and in this case I would have to say that though it's mocking, it wouldn't put me off. Sometimes you can just tell Crace was sent into an impossibly irritable mood by the absurdities or pretensions at the text at hand, but in this case he sounds fairly good-humored (he may have been charmed against his will, though, by his own clever summing-up line at the end of the piece).
