I knew when I picked up the book that this would be about a man who killed killers and who worked somehow with the police. These things were true. I didn't know that Dexter was literally a psychopath but maybe I should have guessed that. It was kind of a deal breaker for me. He is someone who is incapable of love and real emotion and incredibly creepy and I couldn't find anything that I liked about him at all. I originally planned to watch the television series after I read the book but now I decided that I didn't want to. The book was okay if you don't mind the psycho main character I guess.
