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.
I've been following the Odd Thomas series since the first book. The first 3 books were the best. The last couple of books seemed to just drag and have little climax. This book seemed to have no climax at all. When the book ended, I found myself saying "What?! That's it?" the entire story is very disappointing.
David Aaron Baker has been constant throughout the whole Odd Thomas recordings that I've listened to. He is how I'd heard Odd in my head for the first 3 books (which I read years ago).
No, not really.

When Dean Koontz writes a series of books, the one thing you can count on is that as the books go forward in the series they get better. Unlike many authors who write a good first couple of books, Koontz keeps writing Odd Thomas in a fresh and exciting way. What I find helpful is that David Aaron Baker gives voice to Odd in a way that is unique. With him dictating the events unfolding, it feels like Odd himself is talking to you. In many ways, he has become Odd Thomas to me, and I don't think it would feel the same if someone else were to read the series. So I give the performance very high marks.
But as new characters come into the series, and old characters continue, I find myself amazed that Koontz can fashion characters that are at once both entertaining and unique. The premise of the novel is, as with all the others, a test for Odd's abilities and yet another punch on the ticket toward his destiny.
I guess if I have a frustration, it would be that after reading Odd Thomas again, I want to go immediately to the next book. These are so good, and the story so thematically powerful (there is evil in the world, and it takes more than good to overcome it, it takes good with a sense of humor and a willingness to hit hard), that I can't put one down without thinking "Okay, Koontz, get busy, I'm waiting!"
If you have not read any of the other books, get them first, listen to them in series, and then end with this one. You'll feel exactly the same way!
I like being able to listen while doing other things, BUT ended several dozen miles up the wrong road with little gas and no map in the middle of the night once so intent were we both listening.
I liked the book, but my husband did not although he likes the series better than I. This book is a bit crazier than those that came before . . . and the series is a bit nutty already.
I drive a semi. Love listening to audible books on long hauls.
I love these series of books. It has renew my attraction to Dean Koontz.Hope there's a book 8, on the way.
Odd of course.
yes. He just brings Odd Thomas to life. Great story teller.
Love to read and listen to audiobooks! Want books/audios to take me away into the story.
The narrator is so perfect for this character!!! He is Odd. Would not like any of the series without David Aaron Baker!! Story is awesome - funny, witty, interesting, and good messages all through out.
I am addicted to talking books, but only mystery/thrillers or some particular authors like Terry Pratchett.
In the middle somewhere.
I like Oddy a lot, but the recent stories have had a really unpleasant streak that I don't enjoy. This story gave him the chance to be his nice, goofy self again - while fighting lots of demons, obviously.
Other than Oddy, who is a sweetheart, he teamed up with a crazy old lady called Edie. She is a great, feisty old bird.
