A surprising delight to read; not an easy read, but it definitely gets your brain ticking over. I wouldn't recommend this to people who don't like picking apart their favourite books or TV shows, but if you don't mind other discussions, pick this book up. The price isn't bad, and I'm surprised that nobody has reviewed this yet.
Only 4 stars because of course each essay is written differently, and it takes a while to change gears and grasp what each person is saying. Not to be read in one sitting, and it took me a while to absorb each theory. However, the researchers were very thorough, and their references to the TV show (and in one case the books as well) were, as far as I could tell, extremely accurate. Pick this book up if you fancy a host of different spins on why Dexter does what he does - and why we enjoy watching him do so.
It is set out into chapters each written by a different psychologist. Views and opinions therefore vary and I must admit found some ideas difficult to agree with. As a beloved fictional character a viewer inevitably develops their own sense of the motivations and drives behind Dexter. It is therefore best to approach this book with a dispassionate eye.
Absolutly recomend this book for an Fan. Psychology of Dexter: 224 (Psychology of Popular Culture)
(my personal view of Vogel was that she was quite poor at her job: her so-called successes included a murdering foot fetishist and a cannibal, and I think Dexter's success was his own doing)
