Deeply Odd Audiobook

Deeply Odd: Odd Thomas, Book 6

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.

Publisher's Summary

The pistol appeared in his hand the way a dove appears in the hand of a good magician, as if it materialized out of thin air. "You think I won’t do it right here in the open. But you’d be surprised.... You’ll drop before you get the breath to scream." The truck driver is decked out like a rhinestone cowboy, only instead of a guitar he’s slinging a gun - and Odd Thomas is on the wrong end of the barrel. Though he narrowly dodges a bullet, Odd can’t outrun the shocking vision burned into his mind...or the destiny that will drive him into a harrowing showdown with absolute evil.

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.

With the ghost of Alfred Hitchcock riding shotgun and a network of unlikely allies providing help along the way, Odd embarks on an interstate game of cat and mouse with his sinister quarry. He will soon learn that his adversary possesses abilities that may surpass his own and operates in service to infinitely more formidable foes, with murder a mere prelude to much deeper designs. Traveling across a landscape haunted by portents of impending catastrophe, Odd will do what he must and go where his path leads him, drawing ever closer to the dark heart of his long journey - and, perhaps, to the bright light beyond.

What the Critics Say

"Koontz gives his character wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity - and moral outrage." (USA Today)

    "Oddly good"

    This was unabridged so I got a little bogged down at times. But I love the aids books and enjoy the total fictional fun.

    "Odd Thomas is a fascinating character."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I've enjoyed all the Odd Thomas books to date.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Odd Thomas is the main character and my favorite. He is dealing with his powerful gifts with a strength I can admire.


    What about David Aaron Baker’s performance did you like?

    I don't know what I would do if someone else read these books.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not anxious to read Saint Odd, as it is the last one.

    "More like Deeply Awesome!"

    Odd Thomas has been one of the best characters to pop up in any books in years. His wot and humor are only a small part of his charming personality but those ingredients help make the Odd Thomas series a lot of fun to read. Odd Hours and Saint Odd were really entertaining and I loved seeing the writer's world views woven through the story as Odd's own.

    The series is fun from start to finish.

    "Brilliantly Odd again"

    Just like I have been saying. You have to read this series to truly appreciate this far into the series. I had no clue where Author Dean Koontz could take Odd but oh he is brilliant and I am so thankful for his brilliant mind. Thank you DK for all of the AMAZING characters you brought into Oddy's life and to ours!!!!

    "sensational and gripping"

    It gives hope for all good things in human race , as it is also by our own race that the most demonic crimes are committed in our daily life.

    Have read the book fee years ago but listening to the audio had made me enjoy one of the top story teller of our time.
    Thanks

    Story
    "Sick of the preaching!!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There was a large amount of this book spent reminding me that we didn't live in the the 1950's anymore, and how horrible that is.


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

    Spend more time on the 3rd act and make the conclusion live us to the build up.


    What three words best describe David Aaron Baker’s performance?

    Simple, clean, and crisp


    Do you think Deeply Odd needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I love the series but more and more it just seems to be preaching and longing for a world that happen 60 years ago. Sure it must have been great with more crime, higher death rates, sexism, racism, lack of science and technology. I'm glad that Dean Koontz loved his childhood but believe it or not people then and now are good and want to do good things.
