I am amazed at how well the show followed the book. With a little extra insight to Dexter's mind, and perhaps some minor differences it is every bit as good as I hoped. The author's voice is even similar to Hall's. He does voices for all the characters and really brings this story to life. His voice is soothing enough to carry to you to sleep, but beware the dreams you may have.
Kind of makes me anticipate the next full moon in Dexter sort of way. Jeff Lindsay gives good voice to the characters in this story.
To paraphrase a truth, if a writer guess himself as a narrator, the author is a fool. Jeff Lindsay is no fool. The book was good with delightful sentences ("For a few seconds it didn't really seem necessary to breathe."), with dynamic narration! I bought the next two books before I finished this one, it was such a delight to read!
I've watched all the series from Showtime on Dexter and it's my first book I've listened to and honestly I enjoyed the book weigh more than the show
Lot of changes in the story, some good, some not so much.
Narration was by turns amusing and annoying, sometimes it's great when the author reads his own book, didn't always enjoy Lindsay's take on his own work.
Ugh. I have seen and loved the series and wanted to like this, too. Usually the books are better than the series or movies are, but not this time.
Wine, food and travel writer, editor, novelist.
There is something creepy and disturbing about Jeff Lindsay. I wouldn't want him for a neighbor. But through his traumatized, sociopathic character he shows us a world askew. It might flop in other hands, but Lindsay has a diabolical sense of humor, and he knows how to raise the stakes to an excruciating level.
