Double Dexter: A Novel | [Jeff Lindsay]

Double Dexter: A Novel

Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

Publisher's Summary

Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

Like the previous five best-selling novels in the Dexter series, Double Dexter showcases the witty, macabre origi­nality that has propelled Jeff Lindsay to international suc­cess. Double Dexter is raucously entertaining... full of smart suspense and dark laughs.

From the Hardcover edition.

    Story
    "spoiled by tv series"

    I don't know whether it was because I was trying to hear the "real" tv Dexter's voice or imagine the thoughts he might have, but Jeff Lindsay did not do it for me. His delivery for me was weak. Well, he did write the book so I have to believe he delivered it just as he intended. I was also unhappy with the divergence of the events between the series and this book; which includes people from the series being alive in the book who are dead on the tv series and Dexter's sister knowledge of his 'hobby' in the book but not on the television. I think if an author is writing for a character who also has a television show that he should at least keep the story history consistent. I found the story interesting but Jeff Lindsay's Dexter was too sloppy. If not for the interesting story I would have given the overall rating for this book a two instead of three star.

    "Dexter is the best"
    What made the experience of listening to Double Dexter the most enjoyable?

    Der Autor liest das Buch selber, somit kann er ihm seine Note (wie er das geschriebe Wort meint) vermitteln.


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

    Seinen Humor

    "I could not listen to the narrator"

    I usually enjoy the Dexter books but I could not get past the first 15 minutes of this book because the sound quality is extremely poor (on a scale of 1 to 10 - I would give it a minus 1 million - it's really that bad) and the narrator does an even worse job. Really, really bad job and impossible to hear/listen to. I am considering contacting audible about a refund it is so badly produced. Just terrible.

    I've been an Audible addict since 2001. I like fantasy, intrigue, detective mysteries, love stories (not soft porn), and books with a Christian theme (and yes I know some don't think that fits with my love of fantasy). Since my husband retired I have less time to listen, but I always get through at least 4 books a month! I love to stock up during sales!!!

    Any additional comments?

    I've heard all the Dexter books and also regularlly watch the series. It had been awhile since the last book and I forgot how different the TV series is from the books. If you have been watching the series on ShowTime and have not read the previous books you can still listen to this one. Just realize there are significant differences... namely in the books Dexter has a girl (not a boy), his wife is alive, his step children know about his dark passenger and in face the boy also has a dark passenger, and his sister Deb has a son close to the age of Dexter's daughter. Additionally although his father played the same role in Dexter's past we hear very little about him in the books.Otherwise if you enjoy the TV series you will love the books.

    Story
    "Our favorite killer of killers is back!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Dexter is an acquired taste. He is, after all, a serial killer, and even as a killer of killers, it's not for everyone. It's also not a series to just jump into (it really helps to have an understanding of the characters and their thought processes). It also doesn't help to just watch the TV show, since the books have their own storyline (and since several characters from the TV are dead in the books, and some that are dead in the TV show are alive in the books). But if you liked the previous Dexter books, you will LOVE this one.


    What about Jeff Lindsay’s performance did you like?

    He knows his character, and as he is reading the thought process that Dexter has, you really believe that it is Dexter himself telling you his story, not just the author reading the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth it!

    "Double Delight!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone with a dark side to their humor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I just love sister Deb. The way she says exactly what she thinks is hilarious and liberating.


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

    I hated to have to pull myself away from thi book. There is a definite need to know what happens next.


    Any additional comments?

    I want more!

    "Dexter does it again!"
    What made the experience of listening to Double Dexter the most enjoyable?

    The new storyline was great!


    What did you like best about this story?

    More Dexter!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I'm generally not a fan of authors who narrate their own work. There's some very talented actors & talented authors. I've yet to find that one person is both. Lindsay is capable, but i believe his abilities lay in writing.


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

    More Dexter!

    Story
    "Wonderfully wicked, and morbidly perverse!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love Dexter -- his gallows humor, his psychopathic insights into evil, and his amazingly insightful perception of human nature is what keeps me coming back to this series. I don't like the television series much -- but the books are worth the read! This one is no exception -- another Dexter classic of perverse entertainment.


    What other book might you compare Double Dexter to and why?

    The evil twin of the Harry Bosch series.


    What about Jeff Lindsay’s performance did you like?

    Excellent reading performance. Lindsay really brings Dexter to life.

    "Meh, not great"

    I'm a huge fan of the TV Series, and the book has the same characters with a bit of a different set up in terms of their relationships. The reader portrays Dexter accurately, however he is not a very interesting character in terms of personality anyway. It didn't make for a great book.
