The language in Red Dragon is clear, easy to understand English. There are moments throughout the novel when dialogue can become coarse and offensive; however, the language is not totally unexpected. There are also graphic descriptions when the murders are discussed or when the narration moves into Dolarhyde's past, but again, these moments are expected and not unpleasantly gratuitous.
