Its always great to read another book in this series as Odd Thomas is a GREAT character, and its also SUPERBLY read! That being said, this book doesn't have the mystery or intrigue of the previous two books. It also didn't have enough of the needed interaction between Odd and his departed friends that makes these books unique. I kept waiting for Odd to be visited by more ghosts, but this book was more earthly. It also could have been longer.
this was only my third (but by no means last) Dean Koontz Audiobook (after the first Odd Books) and I really loved it very much. I especially liked the reference to the two novels by Kate DiCamillo who are one of my absolute favorite audiobooks.
David Aaron Baker did a beautiful job as narrator as he always does.
A highly recommendable Audiobook !
I enjoyed the first book in the series but the last two have been not so great. I'm waiting for the series to get better and it must. I liked Odd more when he was around normal people. he is just evolving into a character that is too preachy and too good at all times. I would like to see Odd live a little more. For a young character in his early 20's he acts like he is 90. I think Christ sinned more than Odd Thomas. I would still recommend the series though and I will still continue to read it and just hope it gets better.
Only if they read the first few.
He is always great and he is part of the reason I continue to listen. Thank you Dean Koontz for keeping David Aaron Baker as the continous voice, it definitely helps.
I love David Aaron Baker's performances combined with Dean Koontz's characters. I would recommend these books to others
WOW, thank you Aisling for talking me into reading this book!! It is now going into my list of favorite reads!!
Dean Koontz is such a popular author, that he really does not need one more explanation of why this book should get another five star review. So, I'm going to challenge all my Christian friends to read this book that they've probable been prejudiced against in the past. Good, evil, and belief are definitely featured in a very unusual way in this strange but extremely well written book!!
Terrific reading for this audible version!!
What to think? Odd was at his best. Setting was ripe. All was in place; the runner had a clear shot at the goal line. Disaster - fumble on the two yard line! I would never accuse Mr Koontz of giving a novel to the kid down the street to finish. All is not lost however - Odd, Elvis, and Boo are off on another adventure.
Enjoyed this book. It had been a while since reading the first one, but easy to drop right on in with #2. Interesting story line.
Great character. The books get better as the series goes on. If you haven't read any of the Odd Thomas books, you are missing out on one of the best characters Koontz has ever created (along with Christopher Snow). Start this series asap, you will love it!
I was told by a friend to read Odd Thomas and I down loaded the wrong book. I loved it though. It peaked my fascination to read the first two books. I'm big Stephen King fan and found Koontz to be a great story teller, like King, but with much less vulgarity. I think I'm a fan. I would like to be more like Brother Odd.
I really loved this book. I can't seem to get enough of the Odd Thomas series. Dean Koontz writing just flows and you are drawn into the inner thoughts of the character. He has an amazing imagination and I can't wait for the next one!
