Couldn't stop listening to it. I love the Dexter TV series and the books are just as good. This one was full of suspense and very exciting. A must listen for Dexter fans.
Some complain that Dexter has lost his edge, is more sympathetic. I agree, and that is why I love him even more. It's the struggle with his burgeoning humanity that makes Dexter so much more a fully-developed character. Keep 'em coming, Jeff Lindsay.
This was the worst book I have gotten in the las 7 years. the story was bad, the first person was hard to follow and at times mad no sense. If I could have givin it less than one star I would have.
I adore mr. lindsay for writing the dexter books... but lets leave the reading to nick landrum. may not have been so bad had he been reading them from the get-go, but nick landrum did such a great job that it's hard to listen to mr. lindsay.
Yes - only because i feel i should read all of the Dexter books
I dont think there was any part that i really liked. i liked it overall.
I would like the original narrator to be cast again
I watch the television show. so yes i guess
I feel like Dexter has been making really dumb choices and he should be smarter then that. also he seems to not notice really important facts that should be obvious to his character. its like his character is not always consistent. He is suppose to be smart but he isn't at the same time. Also the part when Dexter is staring at himself in the mirror! OMG that drug on forever. Everyone who had a hand in producing this book needs to listen to that part and make sure that doesn't happen again. I had to speed up the narrator speed to get through it. it was bad. the book started that way too but oh well.
In this latest book of the series, Dexter's intelligence seems to drop by an order of magnitude. Dexter blunders around the book overlooking the most obvious of possible deductions and seems almost intent on letting the villains get the better of him. I found Dexter's uncharacteristic idiocy so frustrating that I started rooting for the villain to put Dexter (and by extension me) out of his misery. Speaking of misery, Dexter spends far too much time bemoaning his present circumstances. I'm not sure why Jeff Lindsay decided to dumb down Dexter in this book, but whatever the reason, the result is a new Dexter that is only a very pale shadow of his previous colorful and sharp-edged persona.
Frustration and disappointment.
I usually enjoy the Dexter books but I could not get past the first 15 minutes of this book because the sound quality is extremely poor (on a scale of 1 to 10 - I would give it a minus 1 million - it's really that bad) and the narrator does an even worse job. Really, really bad job and impossible to hear/listen to. I am considering contacting audible about a refund it is so badly produced. Just terrible.
I have only watched a few episodes of the Dexter television show and this is my first exposure to the books and I really enjoyed this audio book. I think I would rank it as one of my favorite audio books of all time. The writing is clever and funny and the author does an absolutely excellent job of reading the material. I admit that I enjoy Florida school of craziness but I think as an entertainment this book is top notch. If you are expecting the gore and intensity of the TV series this is not the book for you. This book is funny funny funny with quirky character and good writing to boot.
