Had I done a little more reasearch I wouldn't have tried to listen to this - had to shut it off after a n hour because it was to gory for me. Interesting premise, though.
This is a great story, classic Koontz with plenty of detail and interesting characters. The story is well read, with the exception of the narrator's attempts at female voices. I found them to be quite irritating. I think you can get past that though to enjoy this book -- WELL worth the listen.
This funny, mysterious, tear jerking story will suprise you. Koontz is a grandmaster entertainer! Stephen King, WATCH OUT!!! It's a good thing he retired. ;o)~
As some of the reviews have pointed out, this is not a typical Koontz book and that is a very good thing! This was my first Koontz and it is the only one I remotely enjoyed. Well worth the listen!
I'm not a Koontz fan, but this one was worth the listen and even had me gripping my seat a few times. As I'm sure many others have, I took it based on the stellar reviews and was pleased to find myself agreeing with them throughout. If you need a break from your usual genre, this is a very good tipple.
Odd Thomas is a good book but its not a good Dean Koontz book. When I picked it out I was expecting something with a little more bite in it. Something that got my adrenaline going like Dragon Tears or Tick-Tock. Its still a good book, it was just an unexpected change of pace.
Immensely entertaining. Koontz has great style and prose, Baker's delivery is gentle but well modulated, with each character given the right amount of distinction. Expect both smiles and tears, and a few goose-bumps!
Great story. I got a little bored at times because the reader was a bit non-excited, which I guess fit the main character. The reader could have had more engery during the exciting parts though. I guess that's my only complaint.
Not having read or listened to this author I found it to start a little slow, but then he sank the hook. Once that happened I could not stop. I really enjoyed not only the story but how it was told. Two thumbs up for Odd Thomas
