Publisher's Summary

Americas most-read, most-watched, and most beloved serial killer - Dexter Morgan - is back. After selling more than one million copies and inspiring the wildly popular #1 Showtime series and top-rated crime drama on pay-cable television, New York Times best-selling author Jeff Lindsay returns with his most hilarious, macabre, and purely entertaining novel yet.

Dexter Morgan has always lived a happy homicidal life. He keeps his dark urges in check by adhering to one steadfast rule... he only kills very bad people. But now Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals. And, most disturbing... these people have decided they would really like to eat Dexter.

Jeff Lindsay's best-selling, dark, ironic, and oftentimes laugh-out-loud hilarious novels about the lovable serial killer with no soul (but a redeeming desire to kill only people who deserve it) have gained a legion of fans and assumed a place in our culture

More dastardly deeds desired? Listen to more Dexter.

    "Get on with it!"

    Ugh, I have to agree with another reviewer that Jeff Lindsay is a good writer but an annoying reader. The guy that did the previous books was Dexter to me. The book starts out slowly with 20 minutes of how wonderfullllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Dexter's new kid is. It gave me a headache.

    "LOVE THE STORY, BUT TAKEN DOWN BY THE NARRATOR."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would totally recomend this book to a friend. I would maybe recommend reading it instead of listening to it. Or at least warn them of Jeff Lindsays horrible narration.


    What other book might you compare Dexter Is Delicious to and why?

    Just about any other Dexter book before it....well not book 3. Skip book 3.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Lindsay?

    Wow, I'll give anyone a shot and it would probably improve. The dream team narration would be to have the core cast of the show read the lines when that character speaks, as in some books that I've heard. Michael C Hall would be perfect of course and maybe just get a random actor and actress to narrate the other supporting characters.
    But more realistically, Nick Landrum was VERY good! Can we please get him back and maybe re-record the previous books?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Um.....It is already a tv show.....


    Any additional comments?

    All in all this book was very good. Very graphic and funny at times. It could have eased up on the discription of every little thing that Dexter sees, touches, or experiances. Though Jeff Lindsays narration is still bad and inconsistant when voicing different chraracters, it was a slight improvement from his previous narrations.

    "great job, Jeff!"

    After the weird swallowing and clucking previous reader, I'm thrilled that they've chosen to change narrators. Although this may not be the most successful Dexter novel, I think the author did a great job with the reading.

    Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!

    "Self Indulgent"

    I hate when the author reads his own books. How vain is that? He had a reasonably good reading voice and could master some variations, but some characters sounded like squeaking cartoons. But that is not the only thing wrong with this story.

    I love a good crime, mystery and even horror story. But I don't find torture, serial killing and cannibalism FUNNY. I think to a story about a step-dad teaching minors how to effectively torture, dismember and kill stray dogs & cats FUNNY.

    Jeff Lindsey does.

    He delivered a few cleaver and witty lines, but they are childish and indulgent.

    No wonder I never checked out the show.

    Serial killers belong in jail or dead and not to be written about as affectionate and loveable characters with a minor social flaw.

    "Dexter is Tasteless"

    A dreadful book. Cannibalism is entertaining? Not for me. The main character is a serial killer who works for the Police Department. Believable? Not to me. I could not - would not - finish this terrible story.

    "Disgusted"

    This book was gross and disgusting. Not even Jeff Lindsay can make cannibalism "funny."

    "Dexter's out of gas"

    Jeff Lindsay is out of gas. Dexter's delightfully droll tone seems forced, and his attempt to convert to the light side unconvincing. I could hear the plot contrivances creaking away. Plus, really stupid bad people. Lindsay sounds like a teenage boy trying to scare his friends on a sleep over, after watching too many monster movies. Stick with the debut of this series, and you'll keep your fond memories.
