    1. Like so many others, I loved the Showtime series and wanted to check out the original source material. I was very disappointed indeed. Since a lot of other people seem to have liked it, it may just be a matter of taste, butThe characters are two-dimensional cliches that can't tie their own shoelaces, except for the daringly deductive Dexter, who *can* tie his own shoelaces. Which makes him a genius. I recall seeing someone else comment that Darkly Dreaming Dexter needs to "show, don't tell." Dex [...]


    2. Jarringly Jolly Jeff Lindsay has given his Rascally Rabid Readers a serial killer to cheer for. Hellishly Haunted Harry knew early on that his young son had a personality disorder. e.g. sociopath/ psychopath/ up and coming serial killer. With that in mind, Hollow Headed Harry figures if child rearing has given him a lemon. make lemonade. So Highly Helpful Harry steers his son on a course that he hopes will keep him from a lifetime of incarceration.Fast forward to present day and Disturbingly Dam [...]


    3. Ok, well. I'm coming at this from an entirely different angle than most of my friends because I've never seen the tv show (GASP! Amirite?). So, I have nothing to compare the book toother than the book. BUT.Having said that, I only read this because I'd heard about the show and how faboo it supposedly was.Also, one thing I should mention is that I rare to never read mystery/thrillers, so I don't know how this stacks up to the other popular stuff in this genre. Admittedly, I shy away from stuff wi [...]


    4. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/ I am now so far behind in reviewing that all of my read-but-not-yet-reviewed selections can't fit on my home page. Bonus this go 'round is somehow I didn’t even manage to mark this one down as something I was reading at all (#failure). But wait, you ain’t seen NUTTIN’ yet. Not only have I never read Dexter, but I have never seen an episode of the highly acclaimed television series either . . . . Yeah yeah yeah . . . . Since I am so late to this par [...]


    5. I'm a BIG fan of the Dexter TV show on Showtime. This led to me being a bit hesitant to read the novels because I was worried about a serious case of disappointment. Michael C. Hall's portrayal of the title character is such an integral part of my enjoyment of the series that approached this book with trepidation, worried I wouldn't relate* as well to the novel's main character.* a dangerous thought, I know, given Dexter's proclivities. Well, turns out that my fears were groundless. The characte [...]

    7. This review is brought to you by the letter D.[image error]Dexter is a delightfully demented and dynamic dude[image error]Well now that is enough of thatDexter Morgan is a blood spatter pattern analyst for the Miami-Dade Police Department, but in his spare time he enjoys boating, eating donuts, spending time with his foster sister Deborah, playing with his girlfriend Rita's childrenoh and killing people. Dexter lives by a code, "The Code of Harry". Before Harry Morgan -Dexter's foster father- di [...]


    8. Getting in mind of Dexter is never boring his insight is funny and his technique of killing is masterful.Dexter talks of his beginnings, of his first kill, the day his dark passenger became the rider. Recollections of the past with his father Harry and his deadly advice, its a good fast read in the rambling mind of a sociopath Dexter.


    9. I read this series of books because I was so taken by the Showtime series. And you know what? I liked the TV show better! The books are good, and it's fun to get "inside the mind" of Dexter, but because the plot of the book follows pretty closely to the first season of the TV show, it was hard not to make comparisons. Spoilers below, so don't continue reading if you don't want to know what happens!A few things that I thought the TV show did a lot better was the whole "flirting with another kille [...]


    10. Mysteries and Thrillers are often hit-or-miss for me. I have had the good fortune of being recommended a lot of writings from the creme de la creme of this genre by my father, so grew up ingesting PD James, John le Carre, and Dennis Lehane with the pulp sci-fi that was my fare of choice. I have also, at times, been forced to read a James Patterson or John Grisham for lack of any other reading materials. This has given me a broad exposure to what could arguably be called the most popular genre in [...]


    11. I'm a very neat monster.I'm really ashamed to say that it took me two weeks to read this book. Two weeks for a 280 pages book! I mean, yeah, the university has been kicking my ass, but still, that is no excuse.This book is about Dexter, our friendly neighbourhood serial killer. Since I've seen the TV series, I knew even before I started this book that I was going to like it. And I did. It didn't blow my mind or anything, but it was still a pretty great book. It started off great, middle did drag [...]


    12. Dexter is a serial killer, a killer who just can't help himself. He doesn't even see himself as human. But he does have something of a conscience and lives by the Code of Harry, his cop foster father, who understood his nature and sought to help Dexter control it somewhat when he was a teenager. Now a blood spatter analyst for Miami police, he's brought in on gruesome murder cases and a new serial killer in the city has Dexter feeling inspired, flattered and awestruck - and frightened that it's [...]


    13. Firstly I have never seen the show. Not once, not a single episode. Over the years I've been told to watch it countless times and then told I have to read the books. Well finally I decided to read one.While it was a good story it always felt like something was missing. I prefer my crime books to have more truth about them. The whole plot point of the dreaming was honestly annoying. It felt like it was there just because the author couldn't think of a clever way of getting Dexter to the crime sce [...]


    14. Dexter este un individ obișnuit și cu totul neremarcabil în aparență. În realitate, este un psihopat incapabil să simtă altceva decât plăcerea de a ucide, împins de către „Pasagerul Întunecat” care îl posedă (demon? schizofrenie?); dar este un psihopat ale cărui porniri au fost canalizate de către tatăl său vitreg, un fost polițist, pentru a face bine: urmând „Codul lui Harry”, Dexter ucide doar criminali scăpați de mâna Justiției.Însă o nouă serie de crime in [...]


    15. Anybody can be charming if they don't mind faking it, saying all the stupid, obvious, nauseating things that a conscience keeps most people from saying. Happily, I don't have a conscience. I say them.And this is both charming and terrifying to read. Delightfully so. Just the right amount of shivers tingling up your spine. Mimicry is such a useful tool and Dexter is quite adept at it. Frankly, I find him refreshing and certainly less boring than most. The puzzles and tidiness, I do like them very [...]


    16. This is going to be a short review.I've heard people say that the books are better than the series, but I don't agree. I think they are equally enjoyable, and given how much they branch away from each other come season two/book two, it's easy to call them completely different monsters. The show goes off the rails around season four, and the books become illogical after book two, but both the series are fun, to a point. The final season of the Showtime series was such a disappointment that it is [...]


    17. Yeah, yeah, yeah I picked this up because I saw the Showtime series. I admit, I have become a big fan of the show, which is pretty smart and complex, despite its kind of silly premise. AND it's gruesome, which is always good. The book, however, lacks the depth and character development of the show. I suppose that's one thing that television, as a medium, is actually really good at. The book feels a little flip, and a little silly, andeven though it's the first in a series, it doesn't feel like i [...]


    18. Oh Moon, glorious Moon --- Why did'nt I pick this up when it was first released is beyond me!I love Dexter and his Dark Passenger. His sarcastic wit, his lizard brain, his fake girlfriend and actual love of little kids. His hobby-related career as a blood-splatter analyst by day, and his moonlighting as a killer of killers by night. Whats not to love?? If you havent read this book (series) yet, you dont know what your missing! I highly recommend this to everyone.I am ranking this my #2 favorite [...]


    19. E' stato riedito con questo titolo ma si tratta del primo capitolo della serie su Dexter, La mano sinistra di Dio. Nonostante lo abbia letto dopo aver visto la serie tv la lettura mi ha totalmente presa. Sarà stato perchè sono una fan accanita del personaggio, ma devo ammettere che è ben scritto. I personggi sono un po' diversi e anche la fine della storia, ma nonostante ciò non mi ha delusa neanche per una riga!


    20. palarisme/chef/carti/72-carCum să nu te captiveze povestea unui criminal în serie care încearcă să prindă un alt criminal în serie, în timp ce omoară, în nopţile libere, alţi criminali în serie? 3.5


    21. Oh, Dexter where to begin? I should probably disclose that I am a huge fan of the show, and have been for quite a few years. (What show? If anyone really doesn't know, it's a series on Showtime with this wonderfully creepy intro.) So I picked up Darkly Dreaming Dexter with more than a little trepidation. After all, as an avid reader, I am usually that pissed off person fuming that Hollywood makes too many unnecessary changes when transforming a book to either the big or little screen. Once in a [...]


    22. I have been wanting to read this book FOREVER! And I'm so glad that I finally did. I loved Dexter the tv show first so it was really great to finally be able to read what started it all. I actually have a really high appreciation for both the book and the tv show. I can see why certain liberties were made with the tv show and how it really worked with the overall feel of the story! Dexter is a serial killer that happens to work for a police department as a blood splatter analyst, he also happens [...]


    23. I binge watched Dexter on Netflix a couple years ago and was hoping I would love the books just as much as I loved the television series. As usual, I think I like the book (at least the first one) even better! You really get inside Dexter's head in the book since it is entirely told from his perspective with his mental commentary splashed throughout. He really does have quite the sense of humor. I'm glad I decided to try out the book, and I cannot wait to read the others as well.


    24. I sill enjoyed reading Darkly Dreaming Dexter even though I knew what was gong to happen. Because I have watched most of the first season of Dexter on dvd. The good thing is I haven't watch any of the other seasons of Dexter on dvd. So the rest of the books in the series will be new to me. Will read one a month until I finish the series. Only seven more to go, looking forward to it. I gave Darkly Dreaming Dexter 4 stars.


    25. A page-turner. I'm a bit hazy on the ending of this book. But I will read the sequels. I rather enjoyed the book, the narration and the descriptions. Though many aspects of this book are non-scientific, it is enjoyable nonetheless.



    26. Kako kažu važno je imati hobi, nešto čime ispunjavate vreme plus ako time činite svet malo boljim mestom još bolje. Uzmimo našeg dragog gospodina Dextera koji vredno radi relativno težak posao, nema previše slobodnog vremena ai socijalni aspekt nije previše aktivan. Klasičan primer de dobar hobi pomaže da ostane normalan mada u njemu je malčice drugačiji nego kod drugih ljudi on ubija ubice. Ali samo one koji su stvarno krivi a uspeli su da izbegnu ruku pravde. Kao što rekoh hobi [...]


    27. Dude. Best serial killer book I've read in a while. Funny, creepy, yet not horrifying in the way that American Psycho is. What can I say - I'm much more engaged by a book that is a rollicking good mystery combined with a creepy-funny narrative voice versus a meditation on American society in the 80s combined with a creepy-funny-creepy narrative voice. I'll admit I first picked up this book because I want to watch the Showtime series, and I'm a book-before-movie kinda gal. (Everyone at work is wa [...]


    28. Version: UnabridgedPublisher: Recorded BooksNarrated by: Author Jeff LindsayDarkly Dreaming Dexter introduces Dexter Morgan serial killer of serial killers. To the outside world he is a charming, attractive normal guy with a respectable job with the forensic department. But Dexter (for anyone who hasn’t watched the tv show) is constantly battling his “dark passenger” who dreams of death and can only be assuaged by brutal murder and clinical dismemberment. He was adopted as a young boy by a [...]


    29. I really wanted to love this book because the TV show is one of my favourite series but it turns out the show is much better. Usually I go on and on about books being unnecessarily long but this book was too short. It just needed more. Jeff Lindsay definitely deserves credit for coming up with the character, Dexter but the book could have been so much better. Michael C. Hall's portrayal of Dexter on the tv show was brilliant and so I was worried that I wouldn't like book Dexter but I was wrong. [...]
