Much like the comparison of True Blood to the novel.. Dexter the television show, takes the good ideas from the first novel and expands them to a brilliant scale. The book has great ideas but the execution of the story, particularly the ending.. left me wanting. I read online that the next books goes completely away from the television shows situations.. so I may read them, treating them as 'alternate universe' type stories.. If they are similar to the first Dexter novel.. then im not so sure that I will enjoy reading them.
This book sucks big time
