I so enjoyed all the previous Odd Thomas books, so I was happy to download this one, but I was actually not really thrilled with this story. I found it predictable, and not very involving.
I love to listen to these Odd Thomas books. The narrator is perfect. What's so good about them? For me it's the sweetness and the philosophy of Odd. The wacky situations are like a B movie device to showcase Odd's lovely humanity and depth. I just go with the flow of it and enjoy being in Odd's company.
David Aaron Baker does a great job as ODD Thomas
His ability to bring the characters to life
Unexpected twists and mystery kept me at the edge of my seat. The action was unexpected at times and filled with interest.

I rate the Audible novel Odd Interlude: A Special Odd Thomas Adventure by Dean Koontz 5 of 5 stars. This 1/2 book is set in time just before Odd Apocalypse and for flow I suggest you read them in that order. The story follows our fry-cook hero Odd Thomas who is drawn into life and death situations. This story is specially interesting and not predictable. For a quick read, I highly recommend this book.
Odd Thomas is always interesting but I thought that the mutant mad scientist angle was pretty hokey which is saying a lot given the premis of Odd Thomas in the first place. The performance by the reader was very good.
I love the story, however the performance was awful. When the narrator used a female voice he was not understandable especially when listening while driving.
The female voices was very poorly done.
I have read or listened to all of the Odd Thomas series and this one just seems to rush to the end making it feel more like a short story and not on par with the other Odd books. Not a bad story just needs something more.
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.
