Like others, I found myself wanting more at the end of this book. If Mr. Douglas has no intention of continuing the series, then he's a cruel man because there's no question this book leaves any number of possible story lines open for future exploration, pun intended.
I found this book to be an excellent continuation from the previous two books. I do feel the author could have spent more time on some of the battle strategies and planning, as he did in the first two books. At times the book did feel hollow, but those didn't last long. I found the parallels to current political debacles to be interesting and there's no question on which side of the aisle the author currently stands. But the most interesting was seeing the authors transformation from one side of the aisle to the other over the course of the three books.
I'd recommend reading/listening to all the sequentially. Singularity should not be read on it's own, it's more like more chapters from book 2 than a book all on it's own.
If the author reads these comments, I hope he will continue the series; I have really enjoyed it.
I wish I could have given it 3.5 stars for the story. It's not a 3, but it's also not a 4. Books 1 and 2 are 4s.
Fast, future, politics
Grey; He represents what so many of us in modern day America are. There are layers to his character, far beyond the demure savior, far beyond the minority that our modern day republicans are out to destroy, he's a man who would do anything for the person he loved, despite the personal sacrifice.
The Harrouk (sp?.) You just have to love that sound affect.
Yes, and almost did. Didn't sleep enough for two nights to be able to read. Add a whole Saturday to that for book 2 ;)
I find it very interesting that Ian Douglas, intentionally or not, explored a lot of his own political leanings in this series. Almost as interesting, he is both left and right leaning, at the same time..
Dexters description of the first 'body' found on the table and his curiosity of why.
Emotion... You feel like you're inside his head while he was writing the book.
Yes. But who has 8 hrs to just sit and listen?
Jeff Lindsay's narration is excellent and really brings the book to life. I originally had the narration by Nick Landrum which was just awful. There are still two books in the series narrated by Nick Landrum and not Jeff Lindsay and they are barely enjoyable b/c of the narrator, despite the good writing and great story. I hope Nick does not narrate another Dexter book, or for that matter, any book I'm interested in listening to.
Book, yes. This audio, no. This isn't the best of the Dexter series books, but I did enjoy the story and see it as the progression from book 2. On the other hand, Nick Landrum is just awful as a narrator. Nick Landrums narration of Dearly Devoted has already been replaced with Jeff Lindsay reading it himself. I hope this book and Dexter by Design are replaced soon with Jeff reading them and that Nick Landrum is NOT permitted to record Dexter Debut (book 7). I don't like to reuse other people's comments, but listening to Nick Landrum read, really is like watching paint dry, LONG and PAINFUL and BORING.
Natural continuation of the Dexter series. Other's have stated this book was different, but having listened to the first 3, one after another, I don't see this book being a divergence, except for the AWFUL narration by Nick Landrum.
Just awful. See notes above.
There already is :) On to that now..
