Sixth Book of the Year


“Darkly Dreaming Dexter” (Jeff Lindsay)

Ahh, Dexter, you naughty little boy. Harry told you to be careful about cutting those people up. If you’ve seen Showtime’s Dexter, you’ve got all the information you need to decide whether or not to read this book. It is, after all, the book upon which the first season is based. What’s more, the producers of the television series managed to capture, and even surpass Lindsay’s dry wit, and protagonist Dexter Morgan’s relentlessly likable monologue.

The series is actually better than the book in this regard. Season one, covering about the same time period as this book, has more interaction with characters like Angel Batista, Detective La Guerta, and Dexter’s sister, Deborah. All of these were enjoyable characters on screen, but none of them were really explored in the book. Even the main antagonist, the Ice Truck Killer, was only marginally developed in the book.

Still, this is a cool, funny book that bears reading. It makes me really look forward to Dexter Season Three, if there ever will be such a thing. It also makes me think about searching out the other Dexter books, which are mentioned on the back cover text.
