After this long pause between books, finally another exciting adventure for Odd Thomas.
Koontz is able to combine thrilling with funny and touching into such a winning combination every time. This book is no different. The end of each book leaves me wishing for more.
I enjoyed this one alot more then i did the last one. I know Odd has to fight some well Odd enemies but Dean Koontz has got to keep them some what believable. Also if ur going keep talking about places from the books Fear the Nothing and Seize the Night finish the third book already then.
Dean Koontz is in the top five of my favorite authors. This one is on par with some of his best.
Odd's conversation with the check-in clerk. And, the scene in the kitchen.
Nothing extreme. There were a couple of laughs. There always are for me with a good Dean Koontz story.
Fans of Odd Thomas will like this one.
I'm not sure, the last 2 in the Odd Thomas series were a little far out there for me (if that's possible for Odd Thomas). I didn't like the story line of this one at all.
A whole new plot could have made it better.
Completely captures Oddie!
I wouldn't have included the whole computer/voice guy from the secret lab.
I have been a fan of the Odd Thomas series and a growing fan of Dean Koontz for the past few years. The first 3 books kept me on the edge of my seat, but these last 2 weren't so captivating for me.
It's official, Odd Thomas has fallen to the stupid story level. I am done with these. Being read to like I was a moron and, I don't really know what to say. Very disappointed.
Say something about yourself!
OK all the other rating categories are Non Applicable. In fact they are stupid. How about a rating on the book. Well here it is. Finally Koontz is back to writing the stuff I loved him for. Some of the last audio books (can I say this?) SUCKED. I gave up on his books for a few years, Now I find that The Odd Thomas is back and so is the old Koontz that I loved and bought his books for. How about some more Moonlight Bay stories. This book was great entertainment and I also finished the next Odd Thomas book. You'll have to read that review. I just downloaded number 6 and I'll let you know what I think,
Do not need to improve this book
It did not turn me off in any way
The reading was very good
I love Dean Koontz! The Odd stories are great it was a nice story to tide you over until the next novel.
Say something about yourself!
I will want to listen to this story again before I move on to the next Odd novel. (Yes, I am assuming there will be another one)
I am always delighted with Koontz's use of monologue to get the exposition out. Odd has a wonderful voice as does Jolie. I'm also a fan of Ed. I hope we get to meet Jolie and Ed again soon.
He's a wonderful Odd. Young and self-depreciating and funny and sorrowful in the perfect mix. I do wish he had given us a bit more differentiation between Odd and Jolie's voices though.
I chuckled a good bit. Although there were some very emotional (horrible) bits, I didn't cry.
It would have been nice to have a little more backstory on Odd's companion. She didn't really do much in this story, but references back to previous adventures had me scratching my head. (I really should have listened to Odd Apocalypse again before attempting this story). Overall, it was a fun and satisfying listen for me.
Professional Madwoman, lulled to an acceptable level of social behavior only by the constant, continual, susurrants of the spoken word piped in my ears through the magic of small, discrete, wireless headphones. OK, maybe I do sometimes laugh in inappropriate situations, startle an unwitting audience by gasping at nothing, and elict stares when I drop expletives in a silent void, it's all good.
Just when I think I might have gotten enough Oddness, Koontz changes the formula enough to pull me back in and David Aaron Baker IS Odd Thomas.
I like reading an Odd Thomas book when I am in the mood for light, creepy, fun.
