Dexter ends the series on the highest note of all..........,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Remorseful Day (Paperback)
Wonderful. the best Morse novel i have read (and i have read all of them) The plot is genuinely very intriguing, possibbly lacking in suspects though.
There is something about this novel, i just cannot place it. he does the characters in more depth than usual, and centres a little more (if possible!) on the characters of Morse and Lewis.
This is way, way, way better than the television adaptation. it is mroe relistic, and to be put on tv they had to remove many of the moct central parts of the plot. When viewing it i was highly disappoined. The people who reviewed it would have thought twice about praising it so highly had they read the book first!
There are other reasons why this book is Dexter's masterpiece, the plot, as with many of his books, is not unnecesarily complicated, and in many way's it seems to flow more. I Sped through this book in a day can you beieve, when a dexter would normally take me 2 or 3.
I even found myself shedding a tear at poor dear Morse's demise. The television adaptation again insufficiently brings this across. It would have been a lot better had they adapted it to fit two 2 hour slots. I find myself devouring every word, every sentence in the last 30 pages hitting me like a brick. If u have seen the tv version and not read the book, shame on you, you should have. If u have read the book and the tv version, you will know what i am talking about.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. genuiniely very sad.
