I can't remember when a book moved me and had me thinking about it for days and weeks after finishing it. This book had that affect on me.
The story is well done and the characterizations are really believable and real.
The ending is great and moving, and in retrospect I should have seen it coming, but it still blew me away.
Also, the narrator for this audiobook does a fantastic job of really bringing the character to life. Fantastic.
I can't recomend this book enough.
My first Koontz read was Taken and I enjoyed it, but wow when I read Odd Thomas, I knew I had found a new favourite author. All elements mesh well.
The reader is fine but the material is pathetic. After listening to the book for three hours, I gave up.
The plot is ludicrous and dull. Why this is popular certainly escapes me. If you are looking for even slight entertainment, you won't find it here.
I've been a big fan for years, but this work is my favorate so far. Great story line. Great humor. The next two in the series are already in my library.
After reading many of Koontz' efforts, I had a hard time getting started on this one, but once I did it became a page turner and hard to put down. I love the way Koontz can make a common guy a super-hero. Although ALL the characters in this town of Odd's are a little wacky, it adds to the humor of the book rather than straight horror fiction. I was truly sorry to read the last page, wanting to read more! I couldn't wait to get my hands on the 'Odd' sequals!
I have read many books by Dean Koonts and it amazes me that at this stage of the game he can STILL keep me fully engaged with his characters.
Odd Thomas had me from the first paragraph. The characters were completly human , perfect and oooh so imperfect in many ways. It was a wonderful book: one I found hard to leave and couldnt wait to get back to.
The story was strong and yet delicate... much like a spiders web if one moment was missed.. you could be missing (and probably were) a very important part of the story.
His story telling is thorough , complete and truly satisfying. As a final note the vocal personality was spot on. He brought warmth and humanity to Mr. Kootz's characters.
"Odd Thomas" is a very good book combining both suspense and humor. I enjoyed every minute of listening to this book. This book is much different from other Koontz books that I have read. The main character is very likable and a person you would like to be friends with.
I enjoyed the humor, the suspense, the mystery and everything else.
Very well developed characters give dept to the story.
Great Narration! Narrator has a clear voice and perfect representations of the different characters.
I can not wait to listen to the next book in the series!
I enjoyed this audiobook. Dean Koontz is a very talented author who brings his characters to the forefront with ease, allowing the reader/listener to really get to know them. Interested ending, too!
