Darkly Dreaming Dexter

One more positive book review! I listened to the (unabridged) first book in Jeffry Lindsay's Dexter series, about the serial killer who kills other serial killers. It's a new twist on crime thrillers, and despite being a cold-hearted serial killer, Dexter has a lot of personality and interesting inner monologue. If you've ever wondered if you're missing something about human interaction, you'll empathize with Dexter. The book's one weakness was the author's penchant for alliteration. Dear despondent Debra, discombobulated dorkiness, D'oh!

Refrain from watching season 1 of the TV show Dexter if you plan to read. It follows the book very closely.
