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.

    "For Dexter fans only."

    Dexter continues his exploits with this new addition. If you liked the previous Dexter books, you will enjoy this too.

    "Loved it!"

    Couldn't stop listening to it. I love the Dexter TV series and the books are just as good. This one was full of suspense and very exciting. A must listen for Dexter fans.

    "Double Dexter Does Death Delightfully"

    Some complain that Dexter has lost his edge, is more sympathetic. I agree, and that is why I love him even more. It's the struggle with his burgeoning humanity that makes Dexter so much more a fully-developed character. Keep 'em coming, Jeff Lindsay.

    "Worst ever"

    This was the worst book I have gotten in the las 7 years. the story was bad, the first person was hard to follow and at times mad no sense. If I could have givin it less than one star I would have.

    "Won't get the next one unless Nick Landrum reads"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I adore mr. lindsay for writing the dexter books... but lets leave the reading to nick landrum. may not have been so bad had he been reading them from the get-go, but nick landrum did such a great job that it's hard to listen to mr. lindsay.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Lindsay’s performances?

    no.

    "Endless filler"
    Would you try another book from Jeff Lindsay and/or Jeff Lindsay?

    Yes - only because i feel i should read all of the Dexter books


    What did you like best about this story?

    I dont think there was any part that i really liked. i liked it overall.


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

    I would like the original narrator to be cast again


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I watch the television show. so yes i guess


    Any additional comments?

    I feel like Dexter has been making really dumb choices and he should be smarter then that. also he seems to not notice really important facts that should be obvious to his character. its like his character is not always consistent. He is suppose to be smart but he isn't at the same time. Also the part when Dexter is staring at himself in the mirror! OMG that drug on forever. Everyone who had a hand in producing this book needs to listen to that part and make sure that doesn't happen again. I had to speed up the narrator speed to get through it. it was bad. the book started that way too but oh well.

    "Should be titled: Dexter is Dumb"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    In this latest book of the series, Dexter's intelligence seems to drop by an order of magnitude. Dexter blunders around the book overlooking the most obvious of possible deductions and seems almost intent on letting the villains get the better of him. I found Dexter's uncharacteristic idiocy so frustrating that I started rooting for the villain to put Dexter (and by extension me) out of his misery. Speaking of misery, Dexter spends far too much time bemoaning his present circumstances. I'm not sure why Jeff Lindsay decided to dumb down Dexter in this book, but whatever the reason, the result is a new Dexter that is only a very pale shadow of his previous colorful and sharp-edged persona.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration and disappointment.

    "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.

    "This will go down as one of my favorites."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have only watched a few episodes of the Dexter television show and this is my first exposure to the books and I really enjoyed this audio book. I think I would rank it as one of my favorite audio books of all time. The writing is clever and funny and the author does an absolutely excellent job of reading the material. I admit that I enjoy Florida school of craziness but I think as an entertainment this book is top notch. If you are expecting the gore and intensity of the TV series this is not the book for you. This book is funny funny funny with quirky character and good writing to boot.

    Dexter returns with double the trouble waiting for him. In the wake of his latest escapade. Dexter finds himself in trouble as his activities has inspired another killer who taunts Dexter with the knowledge he not only know what Dexter is but who he is. Meanwhile at home Rita has been acting strange. his two worlds collide as he races to find his new friend and clean up the mess he finds himself in. The Main Plot of the new Killer is Old hat for the Dexterverse. Old foes and friends return to both help and hinder Dexter's Efforts. What makes the Book Fun are the subplots as Dexter's obliviousness to Rita's and the new killer's behavior leaves him as confused as ever with human behavior, Rita herself is hilarious as ever. As the climax builds seeing how Dexter resolves his situation are the best parts of the book.
