I loved the movie, but for some reason never read the book. I got it on audiobook, and even though I knew the story, it was still engaging with some additional depth. It didn't deviate significantly from the movie (from my recollection), but the way it was tied up at the end made Hannibal Lecter lose a bit of his mystique. If almost all of his knowledge of the serial killer is based on the fact that the man was once one of his psychiatric patients, then he doesn't have to be off-the-charts intelligent, he mostly has to have a good memory. That said, it was still creepy and suspenseful and well worth a read. Even if you've seen the movie.
