I have read or listened to all of the Odd Thomas series and this one just seems to rush to the end making it feel more like a short story and not on par with the other Odd books. Not a bad story just needs something more.
I am a Charlaine Harris fan and love the Sookie series, but this being the last book it was like Ms. Harris wanted to hurry and wrap things up just to get to the end. Not got the storyline the other Sookie books have had. Im not saying it's a bad book, just not the best in the series and written like an afterthought to tie up a few loose ends.
Different from any vampire / zombie story out there, Prey gives you the blood sucking fiends with traditional vampire like qualities, but just not quite a "vampire. Scary and engrossing, it will keep you guessing and will have you scared. Hate that I am having to wait until November for the 3rd book.
I have listened to the first 3 in this series and the story is getting better. I have listened to several series where it seems that the author takes a bit to get into the swing of things. A few things that are distracting about the stories is the constant setting up of future stories and couplings, I like a little forshadowing, but it can be a nuisance if it takes away from the current story, however it seems this, the third is better put together. The piano music between scenes if extremely irratating and becomes almost comical in Saturday Night Live skit kind of way of over dramatizing. The narrator has also grown with the series as she is good but could use a little polish and some understanding of the sarcasm the author seemed to intend in some of the interactions, sarcasm being my 2nd language, i understood. They are intersting enough that I will continue with the series to see how the characters play out.
Absolute wonderful story... I was hooked in no time and couldn't turn it off. I do not write many reviews but this book is worth it.
This book kept me waiting to see what was going to happen next. Im not going to say the best, but it is worth the read.
I like Anne Rice's work, but this was long, drawn out and downright painful to have to sit through. The only reason that I finished this was that I kept telling myself that this is an Anne Rice bokk, it has to get better.
