There are many aspects of this novella that I really liked, but what really struck home was the scene where Odd is trying to plan his next move in a meadow and starts sneezing and his eyes start watering and his nose starts running.
Koontz has always emphasized Odd's humanity, but somehow that scene made me realize that he's not a superhero, just an average guy with an exceptional gift who tries to use that gift to help others. It was comical and just made me want to cheer him on even more.
The only criticism I have is with the narration. Having read (not listened to) the first couple of 'Odd' novels, David Aaron Baker seems to be a perfect fit for Odd. However, since he has a voice that's in the mid-tenor range, it probably would have been best to bring in a secondary voice for the female who also speaks in the first person. It took about 20-30 seconds a couple of times for me to figure out which character was "speaking."
Other than that, I have no complaints and am extremely glad that I invested in this title. Thanks to Mr. Koontz for somehow continuing to give me hours of "down time" with a great cast of characters.
