I love Dean Koontz but this book needs more weirdness. To me it was pretty boring -- but it won't keep me from reading more of Koontz's books!
I thought this book didn't have the same intensity or strong story line as the other Odd Thomas books. I will say it did leave you wanted to know what will happen next, is this new woman in his life the reincarnation of his true love Stormy?
The book was great, the narration was terrific, he did Odd like I imagine him to be. I love the Odd Thomas series
with Odd Thomas and the narrator of this book. He really brings Odd to life in all of the books. It is unfortunate that I am actually going to have to READ the next book d/t it being a graphic novel and all. Highly recommend the Odd Thomas series.
I'm not blind drunk, I'm just blind.
I've been a fan of Dean Koontz since 1993, when a friend of my mother's gave me a copy of Dragon Tears as narrated by J.O. Sanders. Though I wasn't entirely thrilled with Sanders' narration I did enjoy the book. Recently I discovered the Odd Thomas books and found another Koontz character to add to my list of favorites along with Mickey Bellsong, Spenser Grant, Martie and Dusty Rhodes and the O'Conner brothers. And David Aaron Baker sounds just about like what I would have expected Odd to sound like.
After leaving the monastery in Brother Odd, our hero finds himself in Magic Beach, a small California coastal town where, as he discovers, nothing is as it seems. Offered houseroom by an excentric, retired former actor turned children's author, Odd has been troubled by dreams of a red tide that will engulf the entire town. Adding to the mystery are a group of sinister hitmen who seem to be after both Odd and a mysterious young woman, great with child, who also seems to have an interest in him, even knowing a nickname used in the past only by Odd's late girlfriend Stormy.
Once again Koontz delivers a perfect blend of mystery and humor. I can't wait to see where fate takes Odd in the remaining three novels.
