The seventh and final Odd Thomas thriller from the master storyteller.
The future is haunting Odd Thomas.
The carnival has returned to Pico Mundo, the same one that came to town when Odd was just sixteen. Odd is drawn to an arcade tent where he discovers Gypsy Mummy, the fortune-telling machine that told him that he and Stormy Llewellyn were destined to be together forever.
The evolution of Odd. We don't have Odd running around using "Odd speak" that much. He only lapses into it a time or two, for the most part we have him acting like an actual grown up that has aged internally and externally due to the ...more
Well here we are at the end of the Odd Thomas series, am I amazed or astonished? Tricky question, I think I'm both amazed and astonished to have reached the end.
I started off adoring this series, and while I've adored Odd Thomas right the way through I did fall out with Dean Koontz mid way. However, these last two books have been decent, I'm glad I pulled myself through.
And there we are, no more Odd, but it's been fun, such ...more
I've been a fan of this series and these characters for almost ten years, so it is with a strong mixture of sadness and joy that I bid them all farewell.
It's going to take me a while to construct a proper review of this book. I'm too emotional over it right now, which is of course a good thing and a bad thing. :)
I can't say too much about this, I don't want give anything away. But if you've been reading these, you know where it's been headed, back to Pico Mundo, back to the scene of the original crime that started this whole ball rolling.
Odd rolls back into town and stops at the Green Moon Mall which is now abandoned after the horrific killing spree that took Odd's one and only love, Stormy Llewelyn. He is wandering through looking ...more
I love any other Odd book, also both Moonlight Bay.
All of them have a quest involved in magical Mystery and developing secrets.
Saint Odd: Nothing. No Magic at all.
At 50%, nothing had happened.
You know that secret you want to know about that special character: I'm a (insert any magical name here). No more than that.
Every other Odd book, had a continuous narrative, but a surprise plot that was greatly all over the place: Aliens ...more
More importantly, there is a part that was unbelievable even for Odd and I ...more
In the first book, Koontz created a character that many of us fell in love with. A young eccentric with a complicated ...more
That I had come full circle shouldn't have surprised me, for we are born into time only to be born out of it, after living through the cycles of the seasons, under stars that turn because the world t ...more
Although I have enjoyed the Odd Thomas series, I always find them so hard to review. Odd just isn't everyone's cup of tea. His stories are, well, ... odd.
If you are into ghosts and other supernatural entities, then this book is for you.
But if you're into good guys vs. bad guys, then this book is for you, too.
If you're into enigmatic questions concerning the meaning of life and our existence in the universe, then this book is definitely for you.
But if you' ...more
In SAINT ODD, our hero again returns to his hometown, Pico Mundo. Unfortunately for that town, however, the satanic cult, overcome so recently, has also returned in force. This time, the satanists are ready to wreak havoc on the town's inhabitants in an even more violent way.
Like the other books in the series, SAINT ODD involves evil forces versus good. In SAINT ODD, our hero makes a return to the carnival setup at Pico Mundo, ...more
By this time we have traveled a long way with Odd and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Consistently good and sometimes great, this series has taken this completely engaging character through 7 novels and 3 novellas. Funny, tense, and even scary at times, Odd Thomas is a thoroughly original character with a never ending wit and wisdom and one of my all time favorites.
Don't want to say much about plot because this is the l ...more
Thank you Mr. Koontz for creating two characters Odd and Stormy who ...more
I believe this was my all-time favorite series. I'm sad that this was the last book but enjoyed how it all wrapped up. David Aaron Baker's narration throughout the series was outstanding and as listeners we are fortunate that he was able to read the entire series. Good job Dean Koontz and David Aaron Baker.
I rated it 4 stars, but the real rating would be 3 and a half stars.
This was an amazing but sad finale to the Odd Thomas Series. It was action packed, full of thrills and chills. It held me on the edge of my seat. If you like action thrillers with a super ...more
Oddie has had such a melancholy life, and is such a sweet guy, I fell in love with him right away. Every time I read an Odd Thomas novel , I just wanted to reach through the pages and hold him. But, after the the third or fourth book in the series, I stopped making an effort to pick it back up again.
I noticed this one in the overdrive library, and it's obvious from the title and cover which way the series was headed. So, with no patience fo ...more
No spoilers here – but as someone who has read the books in order, from the beginning, I thought Dean Koontz did an admirable job creating a final chapter to Odd’s saga. Koontz is often philosophical with his prose – not just with Odd Thomas, but in most all o ...more
Both heartfelt and poignant, terrify ...more
