Is this book similar in plot to the movie? I have it in my book collection, but yet to read it?

James Sheaves The film is quite faithful to the book, though with some abridgement to fit a two-hour runtime. In my opinion, the biggest change is not to the plot, but to the portrayal of Clarice Starling. Jodie Foster's performance subtly casts Starling as less sure of herself than she comes across in the novel.
Terri The movie follows the book almost to the letter, in my opinion.
