Dexter Is Delicious | [Jeff Lindsay]

Dexter Is Delicious

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.

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.

    "Not the best Dexter"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If I knew they enjoyed the previous Dexter books, yes. Otherwise, no, it's not the place to start.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It felt forced, and a little too random. It's hard to be specific without giving spoilers.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Lindsay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I've read the previous books, but this is the first one I have listened to.


    Do you think Dexter Is Delicious needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I already know it has more than one!


    Any additional comments?

    As Dexter books go, this one was a little weak. It's always nice to hear the author read his own work though, as it gives you an insight as to how they see the characters and events.

    "True to form"

    ***Spoilers*** This installment of Dexter faithfully continues the storyline from #4 ("Dexter in the Dark"), which was probably the best in the series. Lindsay does a good job of characterizing Dexter as a family man gradually discovering his humanity. As if that weren't disgusting enough, he shows Deborah becoming an expectant mother as well. Luckily, Dexter's brother returns to remind the main character of his duties to his "dark passenger." The strength of this installment is that Lindsay does the most soaring writing of the series; there are a lot of gorgeous sentences. But the absurd cannibalism plot is all too reminiscent of the human-sacrifice story of the low point in the series, #3 ("Dexter in the Dark"). This will be a necessary listen for anybody who likes the series, but probably more for completist reasons than for the innate value of the book.

    "Sorry, Jeff, we need a different narrator"

    I have loved all of the Dexter novels, but was very disappointed with this one. And I'm not sure if my disappointment with the story is not at least partially because of the poor narration. I have to wonder if this performance had been up to previous standards whether I might have enjoyed the book more. The narration was so flat it was difficult to get into the story. Or maybe the story was a little flat. I really don't know. I cannot recommend this book with this reader

    "Absolutely wonderful! Didn't want it to be over!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dexter Is Delicious to be better than the print version?

    Nothing is lost in "translation" when Jeff narrates his own books! He does a wonderful job and his dry humor is right on. I love his style of narration!


    What did you like best about this story?

    the humor! You have this killer, slowly feeling a few human emotions, trying very hard to be a model dad, His sister who knows his secret still wants him to use his "dark side" to help her solve police cases. Dexter's "view" of life and people really makes the story!


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Lindsay – was your favorite?

    Dexter


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Dexter first saw Lilly Ann.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend any of Jeff's Dexter books!

    "Jeff Lindsay knows his character."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, it was funny


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jeff Lindsay? Why or why not?

    yah I love his stuff


    What does Jeff Lindsay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the voice of Dexter with all the correct inflections.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know why everybody thought that Jeff Lindsey did such a horrible job. In my opinion he really portrayed Dexter even more acurately than Nick. I enjoyed hearing Dexter spoken as he was meant to be heard, as Jeff really wrote him. I think Jeff knows this character better than anyone and I felt as through he did Dexter better than anyone. He doesn't have as nice a voice as Nick L. But the characters matched the way I would have heard them in my head. I think he really got it!

    However, I'm not so excited for this dexter who is ALWAYS confused. For someone who claims to be such a great pretender, he spends an awful lot of time confused and scrambling to sound ordinary. Love the new baby though!

    "Boring Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Jeff Lindsay and/or Jeff Lindsay?

    I am so disappointed in the narration of this book. Nick Landrum really brought the character out and made the story excellent.

    Jeff Lindsay should keep to just being an author. He has ruined a great character with his inept narration.

    I will not be getting any more audible books in this series as long as he is doing the narration.

    "Story was good but Jeff Lindsay was horrible!"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Jeff Lindsay is a great writer and I really enjoy his Dexter series but the man can not narrate! He brings no life to the characters, and his almost constant monotone voice was putting me to sleep. PLEASE Mr. Lindsay, stop reading your own books and let Nick Landrum come back, I'd buy this book again just to hear his reading of it.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story it's self was good.


    Any additional comments?

    BRING BACK NICK LANDRUM!!!!

    "Jeff Lindsay please bring back Nick Landrum!"
    What disappointed you about Dexter Is Delicious?

    Everything about the way Jeff Lindsay read this book bothered me. I would think both he and his publisher would realize that people who listen to series books want to hear the same voice throughout the entire series. Within the first 5 minutes I had to stop and go check out who was reading it. Holy Cow it was Jeff Lindsay! The scary part is this must be how Dexter sounds to him in his head which bothers me even more. Nick Landrum's Dexter is a smooth, cool sounding, likeable guy. Jeff Lindsay's Dexter is somewhat of a buffoon. I managed to finish the book but if Jeff Lindsay is the reader on his new book, I will not be listening.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Lindsay’s performance?

    Everything. See comment above. I had to give 1 star on the performance in order to leave a review. That's 1 star more than I wanted to give.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dexter Is Delicious?

    It's hard to answer this question because I stayed so annoyed throughout the book with the narration that none of it really sinked together for me like the past books have.


    Any additional comments?

    Please bring back Nick Landrum on the next book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
