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.
Odd's off on another adventure, this time meeting the lovable Edie. Together they embark on a quest to free several children awaiting a terrible fate. Edie introduces Odd to friends along the way, some helping them out, but all in a fight against evil. As in the first Odd book, this one has some unforgettable characters and amusing banter, that provided comic relief while Odd battled new demons. This book won't disappoint Odd fans.
Yes, I would listen to all of the Odd Thomas books again. Dean Koontz has hit a deep well of character that is relatable to just about everyone. Odd Thomas has just the right mix of supernatural (without being over the top), trauma, mystery, comedy and the naivete that makes human being.....................human.
I think it was on the roof when he saw himself............don't want to ruin it by saying more than that. Leading up to the climax of that moment you find yourself telling him what to do.
I LOVE Edie and his potrayal of her is wonderful. I can see her face after his description. The way he becomes Edie matches the description.
I think the end of this one did more so than any other. It made me feel like there is an end coming to the series. I could feel his pain more then before. Not just physical pain but the tiredness that comes with emotional and mental stress.
I am an avid reader/listener. I love the written word more than most things in life. Rather it's physically read or listened to. It has the power to give or take such a large range of emotions. It has the gift of taking us away to some place else where maybe our lives don't seem as bad in that moment. With that being said I have to say that the Odd Thomas books are by far one of my most favorite series of books. I will truly mourn the passing of this series and rejoice when Odd moves on to the next stage to be with his beloved Stormy. Thank you Mr. Koontz for a character I could get to know, laugh with, laugh at sometimes (although never unkindly), root for and to get to know so completely as Odd Thomas. He's been a true gift.
To those constant readers if you haven't tried a little Odd in your life you should.
