I've listened to all the Odd Thomas books and had a hard time listening,I was just bored throughout most of this one.
There was a large amount of this book spent reminding me that we didn't live in the the 1950's anymore, and how horrible that is.
Spend more time on the 3rd act and make the conclusion live us to the build up.
Simple, clean, and crisp
I love the series but more and more it just seems to be preaching and longing for a world that happen 60 years ago. Sure it must have been great with more crime, higher death rates, sexism, racism, lack of science and technology. I'm glad that Dean Koontz loved his childhood but believe it or not people then and now are good and want to do good things.
Avid reader who is also a mommy. Audible saved my reading time!
Yes, there are parts of all the Odd books that are good.
The gradual realization by Odd that Edie is more than she appears is fun to watch evolve. There is way too much self reflection and slow to understand parts that take forever to wade through in a listening format. If this was a book, there were whole pages/chapters I might have skipped without missing anything of the story.
David Aaron Baker IS Odd Thomas.
Yes, I really enjoyed the first movie and thought the actors were perfect.
Enjoyable listen, not long enough to become tedious.
I really enjoyed this book series. Hate to see that it is coming to quit close (I think) even though Stormy will be happy
I started the book yesterday and couldn't stop until the end. Truly a fantastic story. I like the character of Odd Thomas and the secondary characters were good too. Very well performed by David A Baker. The voices of the different characters were very good .I will certainly be following the series starting from the beginning.
I have loved the Odd Thomas books in the past, but this one just bored me. I couldn't finish it. There were just tooooo many asides to the past, to Stormy and to things that had already happened. I didn't think that so much time should have been spent on it, because it left me saying, "get on with it". My other half, however, really liked it, so perhaps I am just impatient.
