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.
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!
Loved all the Odd books. Seeing ghosts and dead people is not a new idea, but it is well written. Fast paced and quirky, I felt like Odd was a real person.
As the final book of the Odd series, it just kind of died rather then bring any closure. I assume that this means we will see more of Odd Thomas, or at least that is what you are left feeling. The first book Odd Thomas is such a great story, and you honestly feel for the character, but by the time you get to Brother Odd and the underwhelming story you don't really care anymore. After finally getting to the root of the story, it is so unbelievable that I lost interest. If you are like me a just need to finish a series then that is about the only reason I could recommend this book. The only real highlight is the narrator, who brings life to this book when it really didn't exist.
