i like that Jeff sounded like the TV Dexter and unlike the TV I get to know more about Dexter and how he thinks. The book is always better of course. I am looking forward to getting the other series books.
Stringent Dark Crimefiction
I do like Dexter. It is a different spin on something there has been a million spins on and that alone is an achievement.
But the book just doesn't leave me feeling fulfilled. Something about the psychopathy not adding up with my understanding of it and the solution of the crime mystery not quite giving me enough thrill. I do generally like longer books so maybe that has something to say.
I am always a fan of the idea of the author reading his own book and this is one of the times it works well. Jeff Lindsay is a good reader, pleasant voice and nice differences in tone depending on character and situation.
All in all it's a good listen in my opinion but not a great one.
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Loved the audio, had me laughing out loud at this character
Dexter in print is far better then the TV show and that is saying a lot as the TV series was well done. You see in this book the real Dexter and how he just doesn't think like we do and how he fakes his way into people thinking he is one of them.
Amazing!!!! Loved it
I laughed hard at some of the comments and reactions from Dexter/
The ending was something with Deb taped to the table and Dex going over things in his head.
Absolutely! Love the blend of suspense, dark humor and engaging characters. Jeff Lindsay does a fantastic job narrating Dexter and I love how the voice stays consistent (but the real voice and the voice of the character within the story) so everything Dexter does feels in character.
Definitely, you aren't always comfortable with Dexter but you like him anyway. As the book progresses and he is at risk you definitely hope he is able to work things out and come out on top.
I love his relationship with his father and how his father shapes who Dexter is to become.
Definitely a cut above many series out there.
Yes I would recommend this book, it was very good.
When Henry was in the hospital and they were having the talk, and everytime he was thinking about all the talks that him and Henry had. Those kind of stuck with me for some reason I think those were the talks that made him who is was.
I liked the sister..
Not really becuase I figured out that he had to have had a twin brother or some other kind of sybling he didn't know about that was doing all this and no one knew but Henry..
Now I am anxious to go and watch the tv series of this book to see if it is as good.
I have wanted to watch the show but never find the time, glad I finally decided to listen to the book. So far it has kept my interest. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
