From start to finish I loved this book. I haven't read any Koontz books in the past, and from other reviews I hear this one is a bit different. It's a great story based on an interesting premise. What I didn't expect was the awesome sense of humor and to be laughing as much as I did listening to this book.
I drive a lot for work and found myself looking forward to my next road trip just so I could listen to more Odd Thomas.
David Aaron Baker does a fabulous job on the performance. So good in fact that when the movie comes out next year I bet I will disappointed when Odd isn't voiced by David Aaron Baker.
This book is a fiction, but based on a very real threat. I found the premise to be quite plausible and can tell some time and research went into what the aftermath of any event that disrupts communication and transportation would be. The author managed to not only write a book that warns of the dangers of an EMP attack, but also made it entertaining and quite moving.
I wasn't so sure when I first started listening if I would like the Joe Barett's voice on this, but after a chapter or two his voice seemed perfect for the main character.
As a father of two girls, I could definitely identify with the main characters struggle to keep both his daughters safe, especially his willingness to do almost anything to get insulin for his diabetic daughter.
