In the book "Silence of the Lambs" Harris, 1988 the whole plot is based around three main characters. Clarice Starling is a precociously self-disciplined FBI trainee who is put into the position of trying to unravel the mind of an evil genius, Hannibal "the cannibal" Lecter, in order to find the answers needed to capture the serial killer, Jame Gumb, also known as "Buffalo Bill." The psychological background is very strong in all of the characters, lending to their believability, except for some fragile associations between the characters Lecter and Gumb. The intrigue of Gumb with moths is particularly worth...

A tenuous theory put forth by Starling, and since it is fiction, the author could write the story in order to prove this theory.

In conclusion, the research that went into the book "Silence of the Lambs" is remarkable. The psychological profiles of each of the characters remains strong even against the most rigorous of skepticism, and although the plot is very frail and almost over reaching in some parts, the depth of each of the personas as well as the writer's fast paced style more than make up for the weakness of some parts of the plot.
