There are many aspects of this novella that I really liked, but what really struck home was the scene where Odd is trying to plan his next move in a meadow and starts sneezing and his eyes start watering and his nose starts running.
Koontz has always emphasized Odd's humanity, but somehow that scene made me realize that he's not a superhero, just an average guy with an exceptional gift who tries to use that gift to help others. It was comical and just made...more
Leading up to the highly anticipated arrival of Odd Apocalypse this summer, catch up with Odd Thomas in Odd Interlude, a special three-part eBook series by #1 bestselling master of suspense Dean Koontz! Here is the spine-tingling70-pagefirst installment of this super-charged stand-alone Odd adventure.
THERE’S ROOM AT THE INN. BUT YOU MIGHT NOT GET OUT.
Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs—a cozy diner,
First and foremost, you do not need to read Odd Interlude to continue with the Odd Thomas storyline, but if you choose to skip them (hopping from Odd Hours directly into Odd Apocalypse) you will be missing out on some of the best st...more
Odd Thomas is back in a three part Ebook series before the release of the long awaited Odd Apocalypse. I have the three issues and have finished number 1, and as always I must say I AM HOOKED. And for more than just the reason of the wandering fry cook. Dean has returned to - what I...more
odd interlude #1 an odd thomas story
i've read so many of koontz's stories, have enjoyed all of them, some more so than others, and his odd thomas stories are really good. odd is an easy character to like, so unpretentious, except when he's pretending, and e...more
I love Odd Thomas. Seriously, if Stormy Llewellyn were still alive, she'd probably shoot me point blank for how much I love her man. The only thing that might keep her from blowing my face apart is learning how much I adore HER, as well. Over the past few books, Odd (or Koontz, if you want to get technical) has kept her memory vivid and sweetly painful. It's strange, we all love Odd, but not many of us would be horrified to see him die in action...more
So, Odd is back! His story picks up within hours of his and Annamarie's flight from Magic Beach where Odd basically saved the West Coast. Now he's at a motor court, that if it weren't for the freaky crap going down there I'd be tempted to stay at. De...more

The most overriding characteristic of this story is -- compelling. I hadn't realised when I borrowed the first one that these three ebooks are structured as parts one, two, and three of one story, and so I ended up having to wait interminably for Odd Interlude #2...more
This little serial comes in the space between Forever Odd and Odd Apocalypse. This first installation doesn't add much to the mysterious sidekick Odd's picked up, but it is an engaging hook. Odd finds himself and his friends (Annamarie and her dog friend and his ghostly dog companion, Boo [Have I said I can't wait to find out what Boo's about, because I can't?]...more
Odd is a well developed character by now who does not seem to be changing much himself, but he may indeed be going somewhere (at least there are hints) in the series. Along the way he gets to attempt good deeds, now for living people rather than just for the ghosts he also sees.
This should not be your first Odd Thomas story. While it does mentio...more
More action in this one than in Odd Hours, which I'm very grateful for. I got sick of the converations that didn't tell any one anything in that book. I really hope this less talking and more action thing holds true in the other parts of this (and Odd Apocalypse: A Novel)
This one seemed like it was trying to appeal to the Hunger Games crowd. Perhaps a...more
Koontz does not disappoint. Odd finds himself back in "hero" mode again less than 24 hours after saving the world in Odd Hours. Man, life as an out of work fry cook who sees spirits of the dead isn't easy!
Now with Annamaria (the pregnant teen with an old soul),Raphael (the Golden Retriever)and his faithful spirit dog, Boo, to help - Odd...more
I had read somewhere that Dean was going to return to Moonlight Bay but it wasn't clear how or when and then I kinda forgot about it. And here it is Moonlight Bay and Odd Thomas together.. Will Chris Snow make an...more
This is my first Odd Thomas book and the suspense story is good. However,I don't thinking enjoyed it as much as other readers because it felt like I jumped in the middle of the story. There was not enough character development for me. I didn't realize it since this was labeled #1. It also was so short and seemed like a couple of chapters instead of a book. I can get others from the library so I will read on to find what happens next in this 3 part series. I do recommend if you have not read the...more
'Odd Interlude #1' serves as little more than a partial rest-stop on the way to 'Odd Apocalypse'. The story itself centres around a mysterious entity that has hold of the inhabitants of a roadside outpost, making them do its bi...more
I a not satisfied with these books and wouldn't recommend this mini-series or Koontz based on this experience.
A little better than the previous two Odd books (Forever Odd and Brother Odd) but still some over-description & meandering in pacing (as Koontz is wont to do) and the climax of the story was too easily wrapped up compared to all the build-up.
And why was the character Annamaria with Odd? She never really played much of a part in this story ~ only mentioned briefly in the beginning and then shortly at the end. I guess she's going to be importan...more
It's good to catch up with Odd. Dean Koontz writes great kinda horror takes, spiced with humor and always includes a dog, usually a Golden Retriever that's smarter than your average run of the mill dog.
This book is part one of a little adventure Odd gets into. Odd has a sixth sense and can see the dead. He collects equally strange friends in his various adventures. Odd is a Good Guy, drawn to bad situations by his sixth sense where he m...more
