Odd is a bit hard to believe - lucky this is fiction. Okay the story gets way crazy early and stays there. I feel that the pinnacle of this series was Brother Odd. Oh well.
This book advances the adventures of our hero seamlessly. The skewed view of the everyday world this beloved, self effacing "fry cook" never ceases to crack me up. This is wry, high entertainment.
Odd Thomas is always my favorite character, but the elegantly named time traveling exterminator is a strong second.
I love Mr. Bakers gentle narration and he has become the voice of Odd Thomas to me. If I were to "read" the books, I would hear his voice in my head.
I am so delighted when a new Odd adventure appears, more so than any other fiction hero I can name. Bravo, and keep em' coming.
I have listened to all the Odd Thomas books, this one was my least favorite.
i saved a drab colored lizard who thrashed desperately in your makeshift bird bath this morning, around eight. he was beneath your notice.
This wasn't the best in the Odd Thomas series. 'Odd Thomas' and 'Brother Odd' reach the "rollicking good story" level, and the others fall off to an enjoyable, but not quite as engaging 2nd tier. Still, this was better than a sharp stick in the eye, or a dull knee to the groin, or a ham fist to the gut, or an angry badger down the shorts, or a collect call from your daughter from jail, or finding out the promotion went to that jerk-wad, or getting run over by a steamroller, or being blackmailed by that treacherous little weasel, or losing your super powers, or reading through a pointlessly long sentence in a review. Maybe not that last one, but you get the idea.
I was waiting for the next episode of Odd, but maybe I was too anxious. It was good, but not as good as the others.
The plot dragged for a while, but ended well.
He is able to portray Odd's humility, and humour quite effectively.
I enjoyed the book, but Dean Koontz has done a lot better.
Iron druid series
last three books i read of dean koontz have been flat. Lost his touch.
Very smooth listening. Easy on the ear.
I always look forward to a follow-up on ODD.
I love Odd and all the books in the series.
I only know David as Odd, he suits the role very well
It was a little slow in the beginning, but difficult to put down once I was in to it.
Odd Apocalypse ranks very high. Even though the novelty of Odd's special situation has worn off, the endearing biographical style sometimes let's you forget that you're listening to a gruesome story of death and despair.
To me, David Aaron Baker is Odd. If they should ever decide to switch narrators in future books, I will probably have a hard time getting used to it.
A little bit of crying and lots of laughing in the most inappropriate moments when Odd tells his story with his odd, unintended uniquely humorous style.
I love Odd. His humor and banter was as usual....witty and fun! Dark humor is never wasted on me.The story line just not my cup of tea. Took more than 4 hours of listening to get the plot rolling. Too slow a build up....trying to catch up new readers. Took too long to point the "reader" in a definite direction. When Knootz did hit the sweet spot the pace was so quick you couldn't get "into it". I have an hour left and Im only finishing it out of, one part loyalty and one part morbid curiosity. Sorry Dean.
Odd hours was a let down too. I think Im done with Odd...unless he returns to his roots of "seeing dead people" and gets out of the weirdness.
