The details, descriptions, deep thoughts, adventure, and the uncommonly, common simplicity. Oddy's simplicity strikes the heart as much Einstein confounds the brain.

It is unfortunate there are too few Oddy's. The stories indicate just how much work goes into them
I would listen to "Deeply Odd" again, it is a precious story with an extremely lovable character. Odd Thomas again finds himself thrust into a world of chaos with just his extraordinary talent for communing with the dead. Once again, he is pit against evil with only his talent for seeing things in a a unique way and his willingness to use self-defense against those who would do him and others harm. The performers portrayal of Thomas Odd's character is good (when I read Odd Thomas books, he sounds different in my head than the actor who portrays Odd in the recording). But I still enjoyed his performance. Odd is funny and touching in ways that is rarely equaled in any genre.
A "deeply odd" book. The soliloquy of the main character (the Odd Man) for the first third or more of the book was sooo boring and self absorbed...I couldn't continue listening. One of a few books that I couldn't plod through. I usually like Koontz but this one was horrible! Sorry Dean, but a very poor effort of story telling in my opinion.
Someone who isn't paying attention to the story.
Possibly. I'm a sucker.
He brings this great character to life.
Koontz cannot write a paragraph without going off on some overly done descriptive tangent. So distracting. Too bad! I love this character. I hate how Koontz throws out inappropriately pretentious words in every single book as if to prove how intelligent he is. It just makes him sound out of touch with his readers. It is unfortunate since I really love some of the characters he has created.
Tell us about yourself!
Yes I get good understanding of what the writer is saying without having to reread it.

NOT for now. PERHAPS NEVER... I have read almost every book, Dean Koontz, has written. This was the biggest disappointment. I have read or listened to, where available, ALL the, ODD THOMAS, books..And enjoyed them.I honestly can't make heads or tails of what is being said, in this book... Where is the story line???
Personally, if I could, I would have compleatly, OMITTED, ANY STARS ABOVE...
NOT WRITTEN IT...... it was awful/ boring/tangle of 'words'. no plot, not even a story line I could follow...but this one, was truly bad...I have honesly started it 3 times from the beginning, I get to the middle, and just give up.I know this one is a DUD, IMHO, I am going to delete it, and chalk it up to a poor reading experience.
Everything...His voice, I found aggrivating...
ALL IF IT..THERE IS NO STORY, IMHO..I HAVE TRIED 3TIMES TO LISTEN TO IT, AND GIVEN UP...IT IS DELETE TIME.
I HAVE NO IDEA what Dean was thinking...I have just given up on one other...It had a Frankinstine type, misunderstood, monster, I believe...I gave up on that one too...even though it was far better, when compaired to this ,"mess of words"...it just goes on, and on, and says nothing..It will be some time before I waste my time & $ on any further books by him...
I travel the country setting up at comic, toy, sci-fi, and horror conventions. Audiobooks help with the travels.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks. the Odd series is a good one to follow however this one and the one with the terrorist guys are not among my favorites in the series.
yes, if you have read an Odd book, you should continue.
David is a great voice for Odd

I rate the audio book Deeply Odd (Odd Thomas, #6) by Dean Koontz five of five stars. While the two previous books were very complex and "jumped around (space and time)", this book was very linear and easy to follow. Our hero, Odd Thomas, was confronted with a seriously evil plot that had un-natural events. A perfect story for Oddy to be involved. During the story, Oddy was aided by a rather strange old lady and a famous (now-dead) movie director. Game-on! An interest and exciting story to read. I enjoyed it and can high recommend it! However, make sure you read books #4 and #5 before this one to set the context for alot of the dialog.
In top ten, i have books from other sites and it was in the overall ten. I like the chrectar of Odd Thomas.
The first two of the series. With Three and Four he was drifting away and I was loing interest.
Well, I did not like his impersonation of Edie, he sounds like Tootsie.
Yes. There are always a detail that one misses the first time through the audio.
It is more like the first few Odds. The last book - Odd Apocalypse- was not my favorite. It was not a typical Odd Thomas!
Love to listen to David Baker's voice...almost as much as Frank Muller.
I hope Odd is back to his usual self in the next book. Still not like the first three that I could listen to over and over but it is getting there.
