A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs - a cozy diner, a handy service station, a cluster of motel rooms...and the Harmony family homestead presiding over it all. But when Odd Thomas and company stop to spend the night, they discover that there’s more to this secluded haven than meets the eye - and that between life and death, there is something more frightening than either.

Would you consider the audio edition of Odd Interlude to be better than the print version?

I don't think I will ever get enough Odd Thomas. This was a great read.

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

He is Odd Thomas to be I really hope they never change readers.

This was one of the best books I have ever read! I am so surprised I have not heard more about it and that she has never written anything else. I recommend this to every reader I know no matter your preferred genre.
