Dexter in the Dark

 
Dexter in the Dark
Jeff Lindsay

I'm becoming less and less addicted to these books. I know it's because I love the show so much more and the show is nothing like the books. Normally that would annoy me, but I think that the Dexter series is the greatest show on tv. I haven't gotten tired of it, and frankly, I think that its more creative than the books. I like the books though, don't get me wrong.
Things I don't like about the book:
Deb already knows what Dex is.
Dexter is trying to teach Astor and Cody the "Harry Code". The kids have the same Dark Passenger as Dexter.
The plot was okay but the ending was way to fantastical for me. Maybe it was because I was reading it late at night and I was tired and I just wanted to finish it. It could have been because my mind was elsewhere while reading this book and I didn't give it a fair shot. 
It's so creepy to me that Doakes is still in this book. He dies in the second season, but in the books he was hacked up in the second one so in this book he's walking around with metal feet and hands and no tongue. It'd be better if he just died. That's all I'm saying.
