From start to finish this book was great fun to listen to. It's funny at times, often scary, and usually weird, but NEVER boring! Good reader too, he did well with the different voices. I'll listen to this one again I'm sure!
Odd Thomas is Koontz on acid. This first person novel takes the reader into the not so mundane world of Odd Thomas, a young man who sees the silent dead. With a host of unforgetable characters, this novel will be a favorite of those who enjoy the paranormal, the chills, the thrills, and the heart-felt love of Koontz's best characters.
Yet another awesome book by Dean Koontz! A little different than his usual style, but still a wonderful "read". I listen to audiobooks on my commute to work and this one made the hour each way seem to fly by; I almost didn't want to get out of the car (even at home!!)
This book is great, although anything by Koontz would be considered great by me. The description is without parrallel. I could visualize every minute detail. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
I loved this book. It took the first chapter for me to catch on to Odd Thomas's gift, but once that happened the story was terrific. I give this a 4.8.
The title of the book attracted me. I like the strange and unusual. The story did not disappoint. I laughed. I cried. I could hardly wait to discover our hero's fate. I wondered if the bad guys would get their just reward.
The characters were very well developed and colorful. I can vividly picture Terrible Chester, Little Ozzie, and the "Fungus Man" to name a few. I thought about this story and the characters long after I was done listening.
David Aaron Baker did a fine job narrating. There was never a dull moment.
I really enjoyed Odd Thomas, and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's not the best story I have read, but it's so refreshing in it's quirkiness that I just couldn't help but be entertained. Characters are fairly well developed, and Mr Thomas is so likable that you finish the book hoping for a sequel, or even a prequel. Great book!
