Dexter is Delicious Review

Dexter is Delicious - Jeff Lindsay

Day Five/Book Five of my Dexter Morgan Marathon is now complete. I almost didn't make it, friends and neighbors. I don't know how I'm going to pull off the next two books by Monday morning. Wish me luck...

Anyfuck, here we are, at Book Five, and this is as far as I made it in the series the first time I read through it. I have not read Double Dexter or Dexter's Final Cut, so I am excited to see how terrible they are. I keed, I keed... I'm sure they have the same dark sense of humor and unbelievable story lines as the previous five books in the series. Lindsay is nothing if he's not consistent.

This is probably my second favorite book in the series, even though it is riddled withTwilight references. I hope Stephenie Meyer cut Lindsay a check, because he deserves it. Every other chapter had some mention of Edward Cullen or the books wherein Bella and he mope around. But what I liked about Dexter is Delicious was the truly stomach-turning subject matter. I loved the Samantha character and her intriguing obsession. I dug the finale more than any of the other books. In fact, the only thing I didn't like about this one was the return of a certain person whom I can't fucking stand.

The book/story gets a three while the narrator gets the same ol' five. And, because I math good, Dexter is Delicious gets four of them thar stars.

In summation: Same old song and dance with a different outro, albeit a much better outro this time around. Recommended for fans with a strong stomach.

Final Judgment: Eat me.
