Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay


Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep's clothing. He's handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He's a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened -- of himself or some other fiend.


This book is what inspired the Showtime series Dexter. It took me a week to read because this series is just plain creepy. Being inside Dexter’s head was one of the weirdest reading experiences I’ve had. He is psychotic but it’s written so well that at some point, you start seeing it like he does. Knowing the rules he must follow, knowing why he kills killers, you become Dexter when you read this… which is a scary thought. Dexter struggles because he is trying to fit into life. He can’t feel emotions so he has to fake it. He goes as far as faking his emotions for a girl he eventually gets into a relationship with.
I love Dexter. Love him. Jeff Lindsay does an amazing job with character development. Dexter’s voice is incredibly strong and seeps through the pages of this book.
Lindsay wrote a book that will get into your head and mess with your mind until you’re done reading it. This is marketed toward adults so I don’t recommend it to small children. Fans of the show will like it and people who are looking for a good murder story. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in the Dexter series.
