Full of charm
Koontz created an appealing character and combined fantasy very well
Wonderful sense of humor
The best in the Brother OIdd series. This novel speaks with a clear sense of purpose and direction, but one that doesn't give the storyline away. Koontz has done a better job in recent novels of bringing that essential female role to the front, and developing the character with depth, likeability, and strength. Odd also steps out of the "cocky and calm" demeanor once in awhile in this novel, which helps to give the reader a feeling of anticipation and a sense of persence, as well as a more Koontz-like experience. Definately worth the credit.
I am addicted to books, audible books, kindle and my 18 beautiful cats! And one dog and a husband too. Lol
I can not tell you how much I love Dean Koontz. His worst book still gets and A from me. I only wonder how his wife lives with a mind like his. Brother ODD. Just ODD is my absolute addiction. I love this creation of a guy who talks to the dead, Elvis, Frank and several others. It is funny at times, scary at times and always a rush of a ride till the end. The story has depth and lots of little twist and turns. Please if you read nothing else of Dean Koontz just try one of the ODD books. Its for your own good, I tell you to do this.
David Aaron Baker does an excellent job of making Koontz's characters come to life. The story is creepy and suspenseful with beautiful imagery and at times even seems poetic.
Love audible. Great for my family, we listen together sometime.
Have not read the printed version
The Russian. Boo the dog
Very well told...loved the different voices
Quite a few moments... But saying goodbye to Elvis was sad
I usually prefer print versions to things since they let my imagination be more in control than with an audio book, but since I have a long commute to and from work, this works out well for me.
I liked the vague return of Stormy through the child.
I don't like this question since I don't think I would want to see a movie made of this book.
I had some trouble following some of the pseudo-science in this book as it wasn't explained very well.
This book couldn't keep my attention.
Yes, it has.
Story didn't keep my attention. Had to keep rewinding my ipod to rehear what the story was about. My mind would wonder off.
I didn't have any favorite scene's.
The core plot. I loved the first two books in the Odd Thomas series. However, this one fell short. It had a few great characters and some great potential, but in the end the plot was weak and came off like a cheep b rated black and white sci-fi. I think Koontz could have done better.
I will give the 4th a chance, because the character and narration are strong and have potential.
Every time I listen to an Odd Thomas story I am so intrigued by the events that unfold it keeps me on the edge of my seat.....I am always wanting more when the story ends.
I hope in the End...Odd gets to be with Stormy
The Ever Odd Thomas!!!!
Very eloquent writing and wonderfully read.
Just well put!
Emotion, voice and timing.
The feeling toward the children in the story. What they have gone through and how they have come out of it.
