I do love these books, so far they have gottan better everytime except for this one. It is not really a bad addition but it is an odd one, even more then before that is. Things go a little off base and i'm not sure I get why he went where he did but it is an interesting listen.
It is as good as all of the Odd series
The Hal like computer
I really felt I was listening to Odd's thoughts
We all knew it was coming!
I wanted to like it as I have enjoyed the first couple of "odd thomas" adventures. In previous books, I liked the quirky personality and interesting adventures seen from his perspective. This one totally misses the mark. It is so off the scale with silliness that I had to fast forward through some parts just to get to the end and put me out of my misery. This was a waste of a credit that I regret having used. The narration itself is fine, but the storyline is ridiculous and the telling tedious.
Tell us about yourself!
Same 'ol Odd
Yes. I love the way Dean Koontz writes.
He is the voice of Odd Thomas, it wouldn't be the same with another narrator.
As I always enjoy Odd Thomas, this was not my favorite of the series.
yes, because I enjoy Odd's sense of humor and perspective on life and the people areound him. I like the plot twists and am sure there are probably some nuances I missed the first time around.
The discovery of a body at the end of the tunnel
When Ed talked to Odd on the truck radio
This was a fun, suspenseful and thought provoking book that was hard to put down.
I don't think I will ever get enough Odd Thomas. This was a great read.
He is Odd Thomas to be I really hope they never change readers.
I only do the audio so no comparison for me
His voice was steady and easy to listen to
It's very well orated which made it worth listening to. The actual story isn't the writers best work. Seemed a bit like a short story written to a sci-fi magazine contest.
Yes. Of course.
The alien intelligent life form, Ed
It was just very fun to listen to this man read. I commute 2 hrs each day and its nice to hear a voice so seemlessly slip between characters.
Wow, I thought I could at least be free from Koontz' anti-guvmunt paranoia with Odd, one of the most innocent and good hearted heros in fiction. However, all the frothy conspiracy side notes have even tainted Odd. Sad downfall.
I would have to say Harry Potter series. Of coarse the great story by the author, but how the narrator make the main characters their own. Which add to the experience of each book.
He puts a face and voice to Odd which is unique. That's one reason why I love audio books. I could never see Odd Thomas with any other narrator.
I would recommend this book to all the Odd Thomas faithful. Would recommend all the books to anyone who likes book series.
