If this is where the books are heading, I will stick with the show alone. The first two books were a fun, good read. This one got all science fiction-ish. I did not care for the changes in writing style. The story was lame, and I was glad when it ended. I am going to read the fourth book, out of respect to the series, but if it is no better than this, I am done with them. Luckily, the show went off on its own path.
This book takes a little different turn from the previous two. A little Sci-Fi thrown into the story kinda took me offguard. Even though I was a bit disappointed with this addition of a bit of sci-fi-ness, the end did please me. And of course I love Dexter, so I look forward to the next installment!
I enjoyed this book more than the 2nd book. In this 3rd installment, the Dark Passenger leaves Dexter, and he is essentially left "In the Dark" Dexter and Deborah are chasing a killer who is burning his victims and relacing their heads with ceramic bull heads. Dexter does his remarkable research and uncovers the truth about the Dark Passenger, how it came to him, and how to get it back. Dexter and Rita are planning their wedding, and Cody and Astor are soon learning that they have Dark Passengers of their own.
I am really enjoying these books so much I bought the 4th one right away. If anyone is a fan of the show, you should read these books. The first book is mirrored in Season 1 Of "Dexter" However the rest of the books are different from the tv show. So its basically like your getting a double dose of Dexter stories. These books are keepers IMO.
I devoured this book in two days! I found myself thinking about the tension during work and couldn't wait to get back to it. Felt that the ending of this story was a bit of a let-down, but I forgive that considering how thoroughly I enjoyed the build-up. My favorite so far in the Dexter series.
