I understand the differences in the Graham and Hannibal characters are closer to the book?
Sorry, I just watched the pilot at NBC.com. Wow!! Graham is not nearly that strange/asperger's syndrome-like in the book. He's got an uncanny skill seeing into serial killer's minds. And the book takes place after the scenes in the TV show. Nobody really knows what the therapy sessions were like, other than Hannibal almost killed Will.
I am very impressed with the way NBC is doing the series. So far, it seems they are portraying Will as a single weirdo living with a bunch of dogs, rather than a married man with a wife and son. I guess that would make him seem too "normal." I have an urge to reread the book now.
