While there was the typical Odd Thomas suspense and action, I felt this book just did not capture my interest. I had a harder time getting involved with characters other than Odd, and had I not read all the prior books, I would not have gotten as much of a feel for Odd either. Not "bad" but certainly not the best of the series.
Yes--it is the fifth in a series, and worth listening to.
I have lots already, and many on my wish list! I sure would!
Unfortunately, none spring to mind. That was the problem with this book!
No--just disappointment. I think it might be time to retire poor Odd.
Disappointed in the story--draggy and strangely bland. Not what I expected from either Dean Koontz or the Odd Thomas series.
this is one of my favorite series and the narrator is fabulous
this kept in line with the other books in the series
he brings Odd Thomas to life, the voice and inflections make the story so much more enjoyable to listen to.
I love the Odd character
Yes but only if they have read the other Odd Thomas books
It felt slow at times but once the action started it was good
As with all Odd Thomas books the story is way out there!! Once you let your imagination go, you will enjoy this book!!
It was fine, just took a leap of one's imagination to buy into the basic premise!!
His performance was very good in my opinion
Well, I know I won't be staying at any old homes in Northern California for quite some time!!
Odd Thomas is a cult unto it's own. You either like it - and read the entire series, or you hate it and only read one book. I enjoy the escapism.
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.
