Dearly Devoted Dexter

Filed under: — Jaime @ 9:43 pm

I guess I promised to write about Jeff Lindsay’s second book in the ‘Dexter’ series – Dearly Devoted Dexter and I wouldn’t want you beachcombers to think I don’t keep my promises. Of course, I do prefer to move on southern time, so slow going is to be expected.

Like so many sequels, this was good but didn’t live up to the first. Without giving too much away, most of the story focused on this whole ex-Special Forces scenario, which wasn’t quite as well developed as I could have hoped. There was a twist in regards to the ‘love life’ of Dexter which I thought was amusing (especially with regards to the children of Dexter’s ‘girlfriend’.) I normally don’t like the love interest aspect in most stories and usually find them more of a distraction, but this fit well.

I’ve read around teh interwebs that Lindsay should have a third Dexter book out this August or September. I’ll let you know what I think of it then.
