The whole book was composed of father ____ and sister ____ did this and that. Plus Odd trying to explain that he's not crazy. It was an easy listen, plus David Erin Baker narrated it perfectly. I really liked the way he did it. It felt natural. Even the way he portraye ...more
So I was fully expecting to love this book, as I did the first two in this series (Odd Thomas and Forever Odd).
the climax of this book was very disappointing. It lasted approximately 1 and 1/2 pages o ...more
Odd Thomas is such an awesome character. I loved his integrity, his dry humor and his bravery. I recall reading a quote, something along the lines that bravery isn't the absence of fear, it's the presence of fear but the willingness to do what is needed, anyway. That describes Odd Thomas to a T.
No matter how weird or strange his books can be, I gotta say Dean Koontz is a phenomenal writer!
Koont'z purple prose give me a migraine and makes me want to kill.

As I've been rereading this series, I've fallen into long bouts of introspection in which I ponder the human condition much as Odd himself does. Odd is alwa ...more
Horror-lite? Yeah, what else can you call it when the story is both warm and creepily weird?
Well, I was dying to know what and why Odd sought out a monastery. And Koontz delivered with warmth and homeyness even as violence broke out. It's an odd mixture of science and the metaphysical, not at all what I would expect. But then, neither is Odd.
The peace and vitality with which Koontz inves ...more

This entire plot is great but what ...more
Luckily this book is a step up from the previous books (not that they weren't great also) and I was captivated by the new mystery - you'll have to read it to understand what I mea ...more
OMG What a horrible boring book. I still have 10 pages to go and i am searching the internet to see what others think about this book. To my surprise a lot of people love it. Guess they only do because they love the character Odd Thomas cause the writing and the story is bad.
Nothing happens. No excitement no suspense, very weird story. All characters are the same. all have the same humour, speak the same as Odd does.

Odd doesn't have to spend 120 pages walking this time around because he's already at the site of the book's action. I have read other reviews that complain about the story line bei ...more
