    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Odd Apocalypse?

    astonishingly weak story; Tesla has been done to death [literally in this book].

    began to sound as predictable as a Harry Potter book

    total lack of the sadness and depth of the first book


    Would you listen to another book narrated by David Aaron Baker?

    yes. I will give him one more chance since I was truly moved by his reading of Odd Thomas [vol. 1]


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Odd Apocalypse?

    everything but the title


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Koontz has written some of the best and the worst books I've ever heard. I wish someone would prevent his publisher from publishing his inferior works.

    1. This is not an effective method for most people.
    2. This particular recording has the "English" part in French... i.e. you hear a Portuguese phrase and then the translation in French. hmmmm...

    Picture yourself five years from now, when you have put into practice the tools of success found in this powerful recording. Wouldn't it be awe-inspiring to find that your relationships, career, education, finances and health have reached a level previously unmatched? You've got to wonder why you haven't taken advantage of the Law of Attraction before now.

    Overall

    A total waste of time... the message it takes an hour to "communicate": don't waste time and save money. Hmmmm. Apply that message to this book and keep on looking for something useful to spend your time and money on.
