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.

    Story
    "Dexter is Dopey"

    Still fun but without the cleverness of the previous book. He's not as careful, cunning or confident as I remember. And lastly end up having to rely on others to save him rather than the other way round. If Dexter can't be clever at least let him go out in a blasé of glory.

    "Significantly Better"

    While pretty predictable and not all that exciting, this is at least a TON better than the previous book in the series. I'd even call it worthwhile.

    Story
    "DexDaddy Displaces Darkly Dreaming Dexter"

    The main antagonist in this story is probably the most disturbing yet. The book takes a while to get off the ground, but once it gets going, it's a hell of a ride. I didn't really care for Dexter's new, happier outlook in this book, but the character is evolving as any good character should. Jeff Lindsay does his usual, superb job of voicing the serial killer hunting serial killer. And a surprise guest made things very interesting. All in all, a fun roller coaster ride with the dark, dapper Dexter.

    "Great read"
    Where does Dexter Is Delicious rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you love the show you will love the Book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I felt that it was more of the show.


    What about Jeff Lindsay’s performance did you like?

    His reading put me to sleep. I love the story but had a hard time staying awake. His voice put you in this places that you could relax.


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

    "Dexter tickles my funny bone"

    Jeff Lindsay brings his characters alive with his excellent narration. Dexter has a dry wit and a honest voice. I'll listen again sometime.

    Story
    "Considered being a cannibal?"

    We don't need to beat a dead horse, but it needs to be said once again that Jeff is not the right narrator. He is tolerable though, so in the library the next book goes.

    I feel I have a pretty strong stomach, but the end of this book took me to the breaking point. I had to fight the urge to gag. If being a cannibal ever crossed my mind, it definitely has been exiled from ever being a possibility.

    Dexter is fighting the balance of being a new dad and the wants of his dark passenger. He battles this for most of the book. There are several twists to this book, enough "WTF Dexter!?"s to keep you on the edge interested. I liked the book, though it wasn't my favorite.

    Story
    "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.
