    Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep’s clothing. He’s handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He’s a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened - of himself or some other fiend.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Darkly Dreaming Dexter to be better than the print version?

    Honestly, I don't know. I think they complement one another. When I read the book, my "internal narrator" sounds identical to Michael C. Hall, who I think absolutely nails the character. But listening to Lindsay read the book was an entirely different experience, one that I liked just as much.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Dexter's dark humor. I found myself laughing aloud several times, even though I knew which observations and jokes were coming up soon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first scene, with Dexter stalking the priest, never fails to give me goosebumps.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. Yes, because I love this book, and I would love to just sit in a dark room and listen for eight hours on end. No, because I wanted to savor each chapter, and I found myself rewinding repeatedly to listen to my favorite passages again and again.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to the book made me hyperaware of how often Lindsay uses the words "said" and "asked." More variety would have been nice.

  • Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power

    Story

    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    If you could sum up Drift in three words, what would they be?

    "Scary as heck." Especially the part about America's deteriorating nuclear arsenal and just how easy it was to "misplace" some nuclear weapons.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the fact that Maddow calls out both sides of the aisle. She's just as tough on Clinton as she is the Bushes.


    What about Rachel Maddow’s performance did you like?

    I like her conversational style. If you enjoy her television program, then you will enjoy the way this book reads.
