Huh, I really liked this one. The thing is, I have seen some episodes of the television show and I have no idea if I would've liked the books less if I hadn't. I really enjoy the TV show, so I may have been influenced by that. And hey, I don't mind, it made it a fun read.
This part has been followed by the television series quite closely, so besides hearing Michael Hall's voice in my head as Dexter, a lot of events evoked mental images originally from the TV series.
I've read that the TV show doesn't follow the book anymore from season two, so I'm curious to see if I'll enjoy book two as much as Darkly Dreaming Dexter
