Dexter by Design

Dexter by Design - Jeff Lindsay I think I might be starting to enjoy the television series more than the books. I'm not sure why that is, maybe I'm just not a fan of Lindsay's style. I'm sure it must be frustrating for an author to sell his character/work and have that adaptation exceed his original vision in every way. I found myself bored by this book and lacking ambition to finish it as I felt it was really was not going anywhere.

It seems like it takes forever for anything to come to a conclusion and the novel actually does not reach it's apex until the last 10 pages. Lindsay takes too long setting things up for a pay off that really never feels worthy of his build up.
