[PDF] ✓ Dearly Devoted Dexter Author Jeff Lindsay –

Okay, dude, this not killer takes the cake I think this may be the most gruesome, horrifying torture I can think of It s the taking of the eyelids and propping them in front of a mirror, in addition to reducing a human being to a torso, that really cranks it to eleven There s something viscerally terrifying about not being able to close your eyes Explains a bit about A Clockwork Orange, too, eh I was somewhat frustrated by the mystery surrounding this killer or not than with the one in the first book, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this book The backstory felt, I don t know Skimpy Dodgy Which it was supposed to, but it lacked a little je ne sais quoi Maybe the first one did, too, but the personal ties and broader narrative structure tying those killings to Dexter made it much easier to overlook The hazard, I suppose, of a second book following a similar format to the first, but you can t have every killer be related to Dexter The author stuck the landing but maybe didn t nail all the technical elements along the way No sit spin Two things stuck out for me in this book, and my enjoyment of both probably says nothing good about my mental state D One, I love that the author really went through with mutilating Doakes, getting him out of Dexter s way, and having Dexter show no remorse and even glee over Doakes rather grisly demise It s part of the cleverness of these novels that you me genuinely want Dexter to be free to go torture the child molesters What make the whole thing marvelously distressing is that in many ways, Doakes is the flip coin of Dexter, and in many ways, you can t help but sympathize with his impulses, just as much as you sympathize with Dexter But Dexter does not sympathize, even as he understands, and so he is gleeful at Doakes s fate The second is my somewhat bizarre happiness that Cody likes to kill things and Astor likes to watch, so Dexter has kids, in his own special way I like that Dexter is going to have someone s who get him, in a way I don t think he s ever had It s hard to get that upswell of not aloneness with Brian for Dexter, because he came out of nowhere, and because in many ways he wants to take away Dexter s agency by trying to force him to kill Deborah when he doesn t really want to which apparently I have an issue with, but not that of the ice rink murders okay, maybe I am creepier than I thought Cody and Astor aren t demanding anything of Dexter, just understanding And that makes me feel good for Dexter In short, I guess I like how the author can provoke a genuine positive emotional reaction yay Dexter has small children to mentor even as that positivity is conflicted he s going to mentor them in the proper way to kill people Oh, vigilante justice taken to its quasi logical conclusion I bet Batman confuses the hell out of Dexter. Delicious The first one was so good that I took a second helping Cheers, PirateSteve If book one, DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER, was an eight on the horrifying scale then turn the dial right up to eleven So what if it only goes to ten, this is an eleven Just push the envelope further More suspense, emotion, and definitely investment in Dexter as a hero A flawed, dark knight The nemesis here is quite impressive and the events are gruesome I won t lie, I really liked this one What is truly a boon to the series is Dexter s developing character and his interpersonal relationships, which for someone who is incapable of emotions is very interesting to watch how he navigates.There is something sweet about Dexter, an earnestness that shine through that makes him lovable He may not be capable of emotional attachments, but he uses logic to validate his relationships in the finest form of rationalization I ve seen in awhile I suppose being able to understand his motivations completely makes me feel an empathy for him.

Oh, why do I do these things to myself I knew from reading Darkly Dreaming Dexter last November that I really preferred the TV show to the books, but curiosity won out and I read the second novel anyway Big mistake While Dearly Devoted is actually in many ways a better book than Darkly Dreaming it s way less rushed, for one, and funnier it is so deeply disturbing that I m still feeling freaked out several days after finishing it And not in a fun way The show, yes, is also disturbing but it s an interesting disturbing What makes Dexter the way he is and the ways in which he interacts with other people are fully explored interesting questions are raised, and there is emotional development, even if it s in Dexter appropriate tiny, stunted, sick amounts The books, though they re disturbing to no purpose All the characters besides Dexter are cardboard thin, which may be in part due to the limits of the books first person POV, but is especially frustrating if you ve watched the show and are used to the rounder versions And the violence is excessive and meaningless people are reduced to meat Maybe that s the point our little peek into how people like Dexter see the world but if so, that would be interesting once As part of a series, where things would I would hope change and develop, it s just gratuitous slaughter, and it made me feel icky I m still eagerly awaiting the start of the show s 2nd series, but I don t think I ll be reading the third book. Now that I have finished this tale for the second time, last time via an audiobook a long time back, I can say that I liked this story then, I like this story now Dear Dangerous Dexter is in some other bounds as he faces against a ruthless man who loves to reduce human beings to a pathetic lump of meat with nothing to look forward too This is the point where the TV series started to differ from the books and this particular story was never put on the screen though some elements were woven into the second season but I believe that the books would be fairly different from the TV series and it s not a bad thing at least now he have faces to attach the names to and enjoy the story.So pick it and pick it soon and enjoy the TV and the Book and then just Keep on Reading. While I did very much enjoy this book and the first in the series, for me this is one of those rare cases where I enjoyed the tv movie adaptation I do think if I had read the books first that I would have enjoyed them , I just couldn t get the tv show out of my head while I was reading and it kind of spoiled it for me There s no denying though that Jeff Lindsay is a phenomenal writer and came up with a truly fascinating story and characters Dexter is an interesting character However, Lindsay is not a particularly strong writer These books would probably work better as pure character studies, because the thriller elements don t work Everything wrapped up too quickly, and there were some big jumps Deb and Kyle I had to go back and look to make sure I hadn t missed a few chapters where they suddenly became attached I may read the next book this summer just to see what happens with Dexter and Cody, but I hope the story is better next time around. Can Dexter come out to play Alas, no, dear Dark Passenger Dexter is in time out. image error
