Rated 5 out of 5 by John from Dexter Great novel! While reading, you can really imagine Michael C. Hall narrating the whole thing Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Larissa from Fun The Dexter in the books is a lot different from the Dexter in the show.
Less dreary and more sarcastic and fun. Definitely prefer the book though the series gets a lot worse after this point Rated 5 out of 5 by Larissa from Loved this This Dexter is different from the one in the show, a bit less dreary and a lot more sarcastic. Rated 1 out of 5 by Mathew from not great the series was far better, in this case Date published: Dexter is witty, dark and snarky.
He is admirable as well, for a serial killer anyway. Jeff Lindsay hit a home run with the few couple. Rated 5 out of 5 by NLittle from Great! I read the books first, like the show too Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Steven from Fantastic series, better than the TV This first book particularly plays out like the first show of the TV show, but with many differences.
Personally I think the book is much more effective and has a better way of completing the story. Very well written and easy to read.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KiraYoshikage from so much different than the television adaption. Rated 5 out of 5 by Death from This book is killer This is so not like the tv series. In the book some one is dead but in the tv series she is still alive.
Also he lets some one who knows his dark secret go hint: Rated 5 out of 5 by 1UpKroeker from Far from the tele I got this book as i enjoyed watching the tv show.
To my suspise the book is a lot different. It is of course better then the tv show as most books are.
Loved every page. Be sure to read it. Dexter had a heart hidden under his confused mind. He loved his sister and only her. He tried to fight his demons by doing what he perceived as good. It was his way of dealing with insanity. Great book! Rated 5 out of 5 by Michele from Fantastic!
Loved this- fluid story line, great internal dialogue. Rated 4 out of 5 by Jacquo from Dexterous! Short but a good read. Nice background and shading for fans of the TV series.
I will be reading the series, I think Rated 4 out of 5 by Love from Good book This is my first e-book and I am hooked. I'm not an avid reader but Jeff Lindsay's writing style is very easy to become in grossed in..
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nicoleabouttown from Off to a good start Let me start by saying that when I started reading this series, I had not watched the TV show that they are based on. When TV shows or movies are based on a book or series of books, I always prefer to read the book before seeing the show or movie. I can honestly say that for this series, I enjoyed both.
In Darkly Dreaming Dexter, we are introduced to our protagonist when he is at his happy slashing best. We are given some background into who Dexter is and more importantly, why he is the way he is.
His adoptive father Harry is a cop who realizes when Dexter is a teenager that there is something different about him. Dexter is a serial killer! Realizing that he will never be able to change Dexter, Harry instead crafts a serial killer code that Dexter must live by.
Instead of running amok around the city of Miami, Dexter takes care of those who have escaped justice at the hands of the law. How does Dexter get away with being a serial killer?
Well on top of being trained by a cop, Dexter himself is a blood splatter analyst with the police department. Who better than to get away with murder than someone who spends his days investigating them? Joined by his adopted sister Deborah, who is also a cop, Dexter begins investigating a pecuilar series of murders.
Sooner rather than later Dexter begins to feel a certain affinity with his fellow artist. Dexter really is the best anti-hero I have ever read about. I find myself, despite knowing that I probably shouldn't, always rooting for him. That is what is really special about this character. You know he is a killer. You know killing is wrong, no matter the reason.
Somehow though, Jeff Lindsay has managed to create a character in Dexter that despite all of his perversion and murder, is just downright likeable. Dexter's sometimes bumbling attempts to fit in and appear normal are a large part of his appeal.
He admits things in his inner monologue's that no one else would ever consider, and trust me, it's not just confined to the killing.
On it's own, the book is great.
It is not laugh out loud funny, but gave me more than a few laughs with Dexter's dry sarcastic wit and macabre sense of humor. I must say that I was surprised by the ending, and that is not something that happens often. I could of done without reading this book. I didnt find it funny, like the reviews on the back of the cover Not my kind of book. If you have seen the series, you will be bored. The series is taken almost directly from the book, almost word for word in some instances.
The only difference is that some of the characters are slightly different in the book compared to the series. I saw the TV show first and then read the book. I wish I had done it the opposite way.
If you like quirky, different stories, you'll like this. Fans of the Showtime series may find this book a tad disappointing at times.
While the story arc is very similar to season 1, the ending is quite different and characters other than Dexter himself remain underdeveloped and seem mostly to be incidental vehicles to help drive the plot.
Many of the nuances of the TV shows that psychology or at least serial killer buffs recognize that make the show realistic are absent from the novel. Does Dexter have a conscience, or merely a set of ethics? Delivery with Standard Australia Post usually happens within business days from time of dispatch.
