It ranks right up there with the best. I like all the books I listen to, especailly from Dean Koontz and I await for the next Odd book in anticipation
Odd, of course, but also the girl he's with.
He is the one who does most of Odd books, so yes, I have, and he's good. I like most the narrators. They woudn't be narrating, if they weren't good.
When the boy was finally freed from a nacisstic father.
Odd Thomas is a quick study, no matter what world he finds himself in, and this can change from hour to hour, he utilizes what he finds there to survive long enough to get to the heart of the matter.
once you get into it
Odd Thomas of course
The World According to JimG944
I rate the Audible novel Odd Apocalypse (Odd Thomas, #5) by Dean Koontz 5 of 5 stars. This is the fifth installment in the Odd Thomas saga (yes, his name is really Odd Thomas; or Oddy for short). Oddy is a simple Fry Cook (un-employed) that has powers and is drawn into events for which his powers are helpful. This is the most complex story in the series (so far) and also my favorite in the series. As the story unfolds, alot of un-expected relationships form and un-explained situations happen (was that Telsa (the scientist not the car) who just walked thru the house?). Very well told story that nicely builds to the finale. I am a huge fan of Koontz and specially enjoy the Odd Thomas series. Highly recommended reading if and only if you have read the first four parts.
Somewhat, but it does keep you interested.
Odd of course. He was able to capture the gentleness of the character and when needed the forthrightness.
Unfortunately with Koontz, you can almost count on a certain plot twist which I won't list since it is a spoiler. And that dogs are involved in a positive way.
The plot twist made me cringe in a "again?" feeling.
I did like the way he involved Tesla though - very entertaining.
That made me laugh
This is a solid Koontz novel and a great addition to the Odd series.
I'm looking forward to the next.
Also, I continue to find Koontz's prose to be superior to many authors - a very easy listen.
My favorite Koontz is still Dark Rivers of the Heart - why that isn't a movie I just don't understand.
I had been waiting for Odd to return. It was like seeing an old friend. The story roped me in right from the beginning. My only disappointment was how quickly it was over, now I have to wait again.
Yes, Odd gets into some strange and nerve wracking situations. I find myself talking to him telling him to watch out. He is psychic so he just might hear.
He is the voice of Odd, anyone else would be wrong.
Odd always makes me laugh. References to past characters make me miss them with him.
This was not my first Odd series but it was the worse. It over described, explained and commented on everything. I was doing a four hour road trip by myself and I was actually groaning out loud. Skip it. I wished I did. I love Dean Koontz's writing usually and that's why I forced myself to finish it. It did not get better.
Maybe. Not my favorite OT book.
Yes. I enjoy his books more than not.
Yes. As good as others.
I started listening to audio books about 12 years ago and have not picked up a book since.I now have a collection of over a thousand audio books. They are the only way to "read" a book!
In Odd Apocalypse you never know whats comming next.
The turning point in figuring out what was happening was his finding of the "secret room.
YES! It's like story time in grade school. As an OTR trucker audio books keep me awake and alert and the miles just melt away.
The action and the parts where Odd Thomas is repeating the foul language directed at him but in his own innocent non-X rated way.
There was no favorite scene really....the whole book was totally enjoyable!
The above mentioned swear word interpretations made me laugh out loud!
David Aaron Baker the reader has perfectly captured the character of Odd Thomas. I have a perfect picture of Odd in my head!
I've been listening to books for twelve years. I love to read but never could find enoough time just to sit. Audio opened a whole new world for me. I love it! I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy and an occasional mystery. The iphone is a great delivery tool for me. Listening to books may not be for everyone, but it is an awesome alterative for me. Everyone should give it a try!
You must read the last book before finishing with this one. Koontz applies his witty humor in this story as well. I love the fry cook’s character and his never-ending curiosity, which drags him deeper into this Sci-Fi thriller. It’s the end for the world if he doesn’t figure out what’s going on. You won’t be able to stop listening!
