It's been a long time since I've read anything of Koontz's, and this is the first audiobook of his I've listened to. This book reminded me what a great storyteller he is, and the narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the main character to life. The story grabbed my attention and held it to the end.
I purchased this audiobook because it was highly recommended from a friend who listened with his girlfriend. They both loved it and found themselves on the edge of their seats listening to it. But I did not enjoy it at all. I found the reader hard to listen to - he just didn't sound like the character at all. And the story dragged on about things for which I could not see the importance. So don't take my word for it, you might love it. It's just not for me.
I loved this book. Odd Thomas has a great sense of humor. It's interesting to look at the world through the eyes of this psychic.
I love the throw back to "6th Sense: I see dead people."
The other characters in the story are just as alive as Odd, and you get a real feel for who they are, their quirks, and thoughts. That's what makes people real isn't it?
I would recommend Odd Thomas to just about anyone that doesn't enjoy reading electronics manuals.
I love the fact that this book is in first person - so while the narrator is reading, you feel like he is talking to you. PLUS, the delightful creative writing style of Dean Koontz makes the story fun to listen too. Time well spent!
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I couldn't help but like Odd Thomas. What an interesting character. I listened to this on a long cross country road trip with some friends. This was the favorite book of us all.
