This book was not as good as Odd Thomas. I agree that Dean Koontz should write more stories about Odd Thomas, and he left the ending ready to add book three. This story was much weaker than the first, but entertaining enough to listen to the whole story. All in all, this is a good story, but nothing great. I hope the next book is much better.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I couldn't help but like Odd Thomas. What an interesting character. I listened to this on a long cross country road trip with some friends. This was the favorite book of us all.
This book started out interesting. The ideas were good. The story idea was interesting. Then it just got boreing. I listened to this on a cross country road trip with two friends. We never did finish it, because by the last two thrids of the book, we just lost interest. It is too bad, because I had hoped it would be a great book that we would all enjoy. Instead we all had fun making fun of it, and moved on to another book. We never did finish this one, and I don't really care to.
This was a really good book. It is comparable to Braum Strokers Dracula. It is origional, interesting and worth the credit. I will listen to it again one day. This one will stay in my library.
I loved it. This book was witty, fun, full of kooky characters. This story was silly, lighthearted and I couldn't stop listening. It is like Tales from the Crypt meets the X-flies. If you like campy, fun paranormal filled stories..this one is a blast!
So I thought that since this book was a classic, and it is very long I thought I would give it a chance. I had a long solitary job ahead of me, and needed a good story to suck me in and help me pass the time. I thought they couldn't possibly get longer than this one! I was bored out of my skull. I would rather listen to silence. After three hours, I just turned it off. This book is the most boring, snobby, uninteresting book I have ever tried to read or listen to. I immediately erased it. I am sorry I wasted my time and credits. If you want a good book, look elsewhere. This one is HIGHLY overrated. I would have given it NO STARS if it would let me. Ignore the one star. This one is a dud.
I had to start this book over the first time I listened. The reader came across as a little grating at first. Snooty sounding maybe? I don't know, something about it just could not keep my attention. After about 45 min, I gave up. The next day I listened without distractions. This time I was sucked right in! As it turns out, the book is wonderful. Full of depth, interesting characters and subplots. I am glad I gave it a second chance. I would highly recommend this book. Sit back, and settle in for a good ride.
Brother Odd was better than Forever Odd. Forever Odd was pretty good, and Odd Thomas was still the best one. All and all, the series is entertaining, and worth listening to. I might even listen to it again one day.
I really expected this to be an outstanding book. It was really strange and not up to the hype. This book will pass the time, but it is not something that grabs you and won't let go.
I really enjoyed this story. I would recommend it for a long drive. It certianly helped me pass the time of a long road trip.
