“Like a breath of fresh air blowing across all crime-novel conventions, there is Dexter.” —Time
Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department . . . but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tolerate displeasure . . . in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.
Like the previous five best-selling novels in the Dexter series, Double Dexter showcases the witty, macabre originality that has propelled Jeff Lindsay to international success. Double Dexter is raucously entertaining . . . full of smart suspense and dark laughs.
Writers should write--not narrate!!!
Jeff Lindsay has ruined his own books by narrating the last two audiobooks. He may be a good writer with a unique storyline, but his voice makes the character of Dexter seem old and a bit dull-witted. It feels as if someone is clumsily reading the book to the listener. I envision that Lindsay's over articulation of the words is due to his tongue adhering to the roof of his mouth. The narrator of his first couple of books was spectacular and hooked me on the audiobook version of the Dexter series (I avidly watch the series on Showtime), but it is grueling listening to Lindsay reading the story over the course of a 3 hour weekly commute. My spouse has abandoned the audiobooks altogether until Lindsay's ego shrinks enough to let a talented actor breathe life into Dexter once more.
Quite good, better than the last book
Better than the last book, but I definitely agree with the previous review- writers should write! I miss the last narrator, please bring him back. I have listened to all of the novels on audiobook and grew very fond of dexter's voice. He is so much more believable and entertaining than Jeff Lindsay.
Double Dexter Review
This book was far better than the previous one; however, I loathe that Jeff Lindsay felt the need to narrate this book (and the previous, for that matter). The other guy was soo much better! Hopefully, if there's another book in the works, the old narrator will return. *fingers crossed*
