really liked it

Thomas Harris has an incredible, simplistic writing style that I immediately fell in love with. Being someone who can't stand pages and pages of pointless background description, Harris' style was a breath of fresh air for me. His descriptions are simple without losing their vivaciousness and his punctuation of dialogue portrays the tone of the speaker better than any dialogue tag could.

In Red Dragon, Francis Dolarhyde is such a complex character that the reader never knows if they're on his side or not. By letting us see from his point of view, Harris investigates and details the often-neglected human side of the killer. Harris' fresh characterization, simple style, and realistic dialogue make Red Dragon a wonderful read.
