Quite good

I really liked the book. I agree that if you watched the show DEXTER then you know how the whole things ends, but it's neat to see how one book was stretched into a whole season of a show. As for the CD itself, the track breaks and the end of the cds was very abrupt and didn't help you move from one to the next. This is not a unique problem when it comes to audio books.

It is difficult to like the character as a pyschopath but the writing is so good that you want to continue into the book. A very fine writer.

If you are a fan of the series, then you will be a little disappointed. Maybe it was because I knew the ending, but the build up to the finale was just not there. Still a fun listen and great insight into the mind of Dexter.

Riveting and very creepy

A very twisted and unusual perspective. Though I really enjoyed this thriller, I can't possibly think of anyone to whom I could recommend it as the protagonist is so disturbing. A great read/listen!
