Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

Darkly Dreaming Dexter (Dexter, #1)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.
