    A sudden burst of radiation is detected beneath the desert in Iran. Alex Hunter – code name Arcadian – and his highly trained incursion team are dropped into the ruins of Persepolis. All they find is an empty underground facility – nothing to explain the gamma spike. It is as if a black hole has swept everything away.... Israel is threatening nuclear war. And someone, or something, is draining the fluids from the bodies of Iranian soldiers in the desert.

    It starts with a thunderous crack and a flash of light. Screams come next. Then the hunters. With a staccato flicker, light disappears and everything within a hundred-yard radius goes with it. All that remains is a massive crater where a chunk of the world has gone missing. As the deadly phenomenon repeats and expands amidst the world's most densely populated cities, Jack Sigler, Callsign: King, and his black ops team take action. But the team is broken, spread across the globe, and vulnerable.

    Sarah says: "Jeremy Robinson does it again!!!!"
    "IMHO, not worth the time to listen to..."

    (1290)

    How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot.

    G. House Sr. says: "Oddly Excellent!"

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or David Aaron Baker?

    NOT for now. PERHAPS NEVER... I have read almost every book, Dean Koontz, has written. This was the biggest disappointment. I have read or listened to, where available, ALL the, ODD THOMAS, books..And enjoyed them.I honestly can't make heads or tails of what is being said, in this book... Where is the story line???

    Personally, if I could, I would have compleatly, OMITTED, ANY STARS ABOVE...


    What could Dean Koontz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    NOT WRITTEN IT...... it was awful/ boring/tangle of 'words'. no plot, not even a story line I could follow...but this one, was truly bad...I have honesly started it 3 times from the beginning, I get to the middle, and just give up.I know this one is a DUD, IMHO, I am going to delete it, and chalk it up to a poor reading experience.


    What didn’t you like about David Aaron Baker’s performance?

    Everything...His voice, I found aggrivating...


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

    ALL IF IT..THERE IS NO STORY, IMHO..I HAVE TRIED 3TIMES TO LISTEN TO IT, AND GIVEN UP...IT IS DELETE TIME.


    Any additional comments?

    I HAVE NO IDEA what Dean was thinking...I have just given up on one other...It had a Frankinstine type, misunderstood, monster, I believe...I gave up on that one too...even though it was far better, when compaired to this ,"mess of words"...it just goes on, and on, and says nothing..It will be some time before I waste my time & $ on any further books by him...

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."
    "Long in the tooth, IMHO"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    not really


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    shortened it, by about 1/3


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I fell asleep fairly often...I did neither, laugh or cry.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the televised version better.

    Art critic Jeremy Grove is found dead, his face frozen in a mask of terror. His body temperature is grotesquely high; he is discovered in a room barricaded from the inside; the smell of brimstone is everywhere... and the unmistakable imprint of a claw is burned into the wall. As more bodies are discovered - their only connection the bizarre but identical manner of death - the world begins to wonder if the Devil has, in fact, come to collect his due.

    Lannette says: "Simply another great Pendergast novel."
