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.
This was one of the better Odd Thomas books, but this story could have been the 3rd book of the Moonlight Bay series. The plot is centered around Fort Wyvern, one of Christopher Snow's old stomping grounds. This is not one of the typical Odd Thomas books where he is influenced by the dead. The relationship with Annamaria from the previous book "Odd Apocalypse" is also revealed. If you are a fan of the Odd Thomas or the Moonlight Bay series you will love this book.
Lover of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mystery, and westerns in all media, including old-time radio dramatizations.
Like many faithful fans of Oddy, I've been disappointed with Koontz' recent efforts; however, 'Odd Interlude' has much of the charm that we have come to expect. I thought it worth the listen, but nothing to rave over. I found some of the teenage banter a bit overdone, but not to the point of complete spoilage.
David Aaron Baker's narration was, as usual, very competently done.
Bottom line - I'll hang in there for one more installment, but Koontz needs to pull a rabbit out of his hat or lose me after that
*** TINY SPOILER ALERT ***
I agree with other reviewers who say it's time explain the pregnant girl! Does Koontz think that her unexplained presence will keep us spending our money in hope of an answer? I don't think so. It's good writing that brings most of us back, and Koontz was trying my dedication until 'Interlude.'

Haven't seen the print version, but the audio version was outstanding.
Jolee Ann Harmony. Her view of Odd and her take on the world were refreshing. Ed was my second favorite.
The conversation between Ed and Odd as he prepares to take on Hiskoff.
Jolee Ann Harmony -- just because I think the kid could use a break.
This was easily as enjoyable as any of the prior full Odd Thomas books.
