it was amazing
bookshelves: 2015-read, favorites

I love Dexter. So the 5 stars may be a bit biased. If I had to sit and think about the overall story and writing and everything else I'm not sure it would be a 5 star book. I feel like since I know the first season of the show so well I have all this extra story that the book could have used, but at the same time I enjoyed the short and sweet to the point aspect of the book. Overall I really enjoyed reading this and almost finished it in one sitting. I'm very interested to see where the series goes since the show only follows book one, I have no idea what to expect.

I did enjoy the end of this book, which is quite different from the show. (view spoiler)

If you're a fan of the show and on the edge of picking this up, just know that there was a lot they added to bulk the show up to get 13 episodes. Since this is only a 288 page book there aren't aspects from the show that I was expecting but it was still a good read. Again, I'm excited to see where it goes from here and very excited to get into an entirely new Dexter world!
