After the weird swallowing and clucking previous reader, I'm thrilled that they've chosen to change narrators. Although this may not be the most successful Dexter novel, I think the author did a great job with the reading.
Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!
I hate when the author reads his own books. How vain is that? He had a reasonably good reading voice and could master some variations, but some characters sounded like squeaking cartoons. But that is not the only thing wrong with this story.
I love a good crime, mystery and even horror story. But I don't find torture, serial killing and cannibalism FUNNY. I think to a story about a step-dad teaching minors how to effectively torture, dismember and kill stray dogs & cats FUNNY.
Jeff Lindsey does.
He delivered a few cleaver and witty lines, but they are childish and indulgent.
No wonder I never checked out the show.
Serial killers belong in jail or dead and not to be written about as affectionate and loveable characters with a minor social flaw.
A dreadful book. Cannibalism is entertaining? Not for me. The main character is a serial killer who works for the Police Department. Believable? Not to me. I could not - would not - finish this terrible story.
Jeff Lindsay is out of gas. Dexter's delightfully droll tone seems forced, and his attempt to convert to the light side unconvincing. I could hear the plot contrivances creaking away. Plus, really stupid bad people. Lindsay sounds like a teenage boy trying to scare his friends on a sleep over, after watching too many monster movies. Stick with the debut of this series, and you'll keep your fond memories.
