It was just to bland. Not enough action, nothing compared to the "Dexter" on t.v.Because of the show I was expecting more blood, gore, and creepy parts. The book failed to engage my nightmares. It seemed to skip over so many parts and I believe that the show had many more (ah) Deep inclination of the breath factor.I'm a little skeptical on buying the next book but since I started it, I will finish it....

Barely readable. The Showtime series is far superior.

I like the premise. And the characters. (Though I wish dexter was a more believable character) I don't like the writing. Read full review

User Review  - Stacey Zouck - Goodreads

I have to agree that the series was better....the ending of this book was hard to believe compared to how the first season ended. The inner monologue that I love from the show very definitely came from the book, which is my favorite part of Dexter's character. Read full review

I actually preferred the television series, which is very rare. I was bitterly disappointed by the lack of "ice truck killer"- the series was so detailed and I think the book just kind of trailed off. Overall, not great, but I'm still going to finish the book series. Read full review

User Review  - Shirley - Goodreads

Was looking for something fun to read and I heard good things about this book. I'm not a fan of the show, but the book was an exciting enough read. It felt like an episode of a crime drama, easy to get hooked on, easy to walk away from and forget about at the end. Read full review

if you can get past the monotone American Psycho-esque narration and the constant reiteration that he is a sociopath to get to the humor, this series could be enjoyable. but for people who like a little more personality, stick with the show. Read full review

I wish I had read this before seeing the show. This book basically covers the first season of Dexter. However, there are some very welcome changes at the end of the book. Read full review
