I echo the opinion of "Pat from Salinas" et al. re:narration. I may at some point in the future try to read this book, if I can erase the narrator's influence from my memory. Perhaps if I turned up the speed option on my ipod? I'm trying to push through, but presently think that Mr. Hoye should convert to reading bedtime stories. That should work well. Hard to overlook the narrator's influence in rating the book isn't it?
Dear Odd Thomas
Oh, Odd one. Can you please ask Koontz to give you a plot next time? I stayed with it, but only because I've grown fond of you, not because the book is a page turner.
I know it's so tempting to look for a plot on the homeland security themewagon. I'm guessing Koontz might move on to Odd Aliens next. If it matters Dean, I quit watching Chuck Norris when he made that move. Only Scully and Mulder do it right.
Frequently Koontz, actually a talented writer, gives his other characters books with plots. Demand your fair share.
Evanovich writes about a gal, Italian to her toes, Jersey born and bred, hot for her first grade boyfriend turned cop and about three other guys.
Wait, how come the reader lacks the accent that tells the reader what Plum is all about. She's good, this reader, she enunciates, keeps you awake and is coherent but there's no Jersey, no garlic, no Italian, no lust and spitfire.
Listen to this book, then guess the author. Jodi Picoult, right? Oh wait, I'm not a Picoult fan, she just exhausts me. Coben is all cause ridden in this one, just when I wanted a good thriller. I'll keep reading Coben, just not recommending this one.
