I was a big fan of the Dexter TV show when it was on the air, but I hadn’t gotten around to reading the books until just now. I’ve recently developed an interest in the novels that some of my favorite TV shows are based on (I recently finished Deja Dead, which was the inspiration for the TV show Bones), and I was glad to finally grab this one, too. I really enjoyed it. I thought it was fast paced, yet lyrical and exceptionally well written. Dexter’s voice is dry, witty, and engaging - and it makes me appreciate the actor who plays Dexter on TV that much more. I’ll definitely be continuing with the series. ( )

The first in the series, this introduces Dexter Morgan, a blood splatter specialist for the Miami police and a serial killer who hunts down other serial killers. While his co-workers are tracking down a killer who dismembers and packages the body parts like presents, Dexter is studying the methods of his fellow murderer with admiration, while also hoping he can solve the case on his own and take the killer out by his own method.

Anyone who was a fan of the Dexter series, Bones, CSI or NCIS should pick up this novel!

Darkly Dreaming Dexter is a fun, sarcastic crime novel. Instead of following a detective, this novel follows a serial killer, who is trying to catch another serial killer!

I decided to read this book after I watched some of the Dexter television series. Anyone who has watched the series, should know the first book is the first season of the show. The two are almost identical, minus a few changes to make the television show more showbiz worthy.

Dexter Morgan is a serial killer who is out of touch with people. He is awkward, very smart and is a bit naive with women. He has killed over dozens of people, and somebody seems to know he was doing it. This person leaves clues for him all over the city in his deaths, that Dexter has to investigate since he works for the Miami Police as a forensic officer. Dexter has never been caught, yet he seems to be getting a bit sloppy once he knows somebody has their eyes on him...

Chaos ensues when Dexter's mysterious background is figured out. Dexter can barely remember his own pats, but when he finds out the result is shocking!

I loved this novel. The entire book is filled with alliterations and lots of sarcasm. On top of the typical murder story, seeing the book in the eyes of a serial killer gives it a bit of charm!

Five out of five stars! ( )

I am not familiar with the television series inspired by this book so was completely unaware of what to expect. As most people will be aware, Dexter Morgan is a forensic scientist working with the Miami-Dade Police Department. He is, however, also a practising psychopath and serial killer, with a string of murders to his name. His victims are general murderers or serial rapists themselves, and Dexter is just bringing justice to bear beyond the remit of the official system.

I found this novel entertaining - written in the first person, it effectively captures Dexter’s ability to consider his ‘quest’ dispassionately, as he sets out his thought processes. In this first outing he explains a little of his background in which he was adopted and raised by the Morgan family. His adoptive father, himself an accomplished policeman, had identified a level of mental disengagement in the young Dexter, and had counselled him to direct his psychopathy towards as generally beneficial ends as possible, hence his ‘crusade’ against people who hitherto have escaped the criminal justice system.

Dexter’s fractured relationships with colleagues are also put forward in an appealing manner. One may feel uncomfortable about empathising with a working psychopath, but he certainly puts forward a compelling case. ( )

I didn't like the book, but the TV show is a must-see. ( )

For the last word on serial killers, leave it to the witty narrator of Jeff Lindsay's ghoulish first novel, DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER (Doubleday, $22.95). Articulate, well-mannered and charming in a way that makes women want to iron the loud bowling shirts he wears, Dexter Morgan is a contented man because he loves his work -- not his day job as a blood-spatter-pattern analyst for the Miami Police Department, but his moonlight career as a vigilante serial killer.
 
Dexter Morgan, the strenuously affable narrator of Jeff Lindsay's Darkly Dreaming Dexter, may be the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love. A psychopath so cuddly and upstanding that he only murders ''bad people,'' Dex introduces himself one moonlit night as he gleefully snuffs the life of a child-killing priest. ''A few more neatly wrapped bags of garbage and my one small corner of the world is a neater, happier place,'' he announces. ''I enjoy my work. Sorry if that bothers you. Oh, very sorry, really. But there it is.''

Except in my sleep, of course—and did that really count? Weren't we all crazy in our sleep? What was sleep, after all, but the process by which we dumped our insanity into a dark subconscious pit and came out on the other side ready to eat cereal instead of the neighbor's children?
Again I saw in her face the thing I had seen when she first got out of her car—the look of a predator weighing her prey, wondering when and where to strike, and how many claws to use. It was horrible—I actually found myself warming to the woman.
