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!

I would only recommend this to someone who was a devoted fan of Odd Thomas. My familiarity with the characters was all that kept me going at times. It took way too long to get to the meat of the story. If I hadn't known the characters and their history, I would have put it down unfinished before I was halfway through the book, simply because I had no idea what was going on and nothing was connecting.
I always appreciate Odd Thomas' continual optimism, even when faced with certain (?) death.
Suspenseful, fast moving.
When Odd and Company finally escaped and drove out of the gates.
I didnt laugh or cry but thoroughly enjoyed the roller coaster ride and adventure.
Hope there will be lots more Odd Thomas books!! Please!!
I really enjoyed this book, as I have all the Odd books. This one was twisty and kept my interest all the way through. I loved the parts about Tesla, an interesting addition from and inventive author.
The most interesting aspect is that in this book the story takes place over a small matter of days. This was also the least interesting because it caused the story to feel rushed. Other Odd books where more enjoyable because you could tell Koontz really wanted to get you fully immersed in the story, this one just seemed like he just wanted to pen a fourth book quickly. (Which I know sounds weird because of how long its been since his last Odd book)
I hated the narration of this story. I listened to this on my Ipod (ear buds set inside the ear) and no matter how I played with the volume the strong "S" in the narrators speech made me cringe. This also seemed to be the case when I play it on my speakers. I could only listen to a couple of chapters at a time because of this.
yes, but unfortunately I could not due to the narrators hissing annoyingly when reading a word with the letter "S".
My advise is to buy this book and read it yourself.
