    Story
    (228)

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    Overall

    This was my first Koontz listen and I will need to listen to many other Author's titles to get this book out of my head. Although I found the details provided by Koontz to be somewhat exhausting and tedious at times, the overall story was riveting and kept me coming back. I like the way the narrator switched between different tones when reading from the viewpoint of Chyna and The Killer , as well as the timing of those viewpoints by Koontz. Koontz leaves no point unaddressed, and I wasn't left thinking "how did that happen" or "why didn't Chyna just…" All characters are believable and what transpires over the 30+ hours makes for a great listen you will be talking about for many weeks later.

    No one could have imagined Odd Thomas ever leaving the quirky comfort of Pico Mundo. Yet leave it he has, for a monastery. But Odd has a knack for finding trouble no matter where he goes, and a killer is stalking the ancient holy halls. Odd is about to meet an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered.

    "Not That Great"
    Overall

    As the final book of the Odd series, it just kind of died rather then bring any closure. I assume that this means we will see more of Odd Thomas, or at least that is what you are left feeling. The first book Odd Thomas is such a great story, and you honestly feel for the character, but by the time you get to Brother Odd and the underwhelming story you don't really care anymore. After finally getting to the root of the story, it is so unbelievable that I lost interest. If you are like me a just need to finish a series then that is about the only reason I could recommend this book. The only real highlight is the narrator, who brings life to this book when it really didn't exist.
