Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this in about three hours (what can I say, I’m fast and already know the plot, having seen the show.)
It certainly fascinating and enjoyable, and the dialogue fantastic, but I’m spoiled a bit from the show, which I think had tighter plotting and a better arc.
Yes, I’m going to commit that cardinal sin–and admit I preferred the show to the original novel. Hang me for my crimes! I’d say 3.6 stars if Goodreads could do that sort of decimalisation… but it can’t, so oh well.
