    Description

    No one could have imagined Odd Thomas ever leaving the perfect, quirky comfort of Pico Mundo, least of all Odd himself. The little desert town that nurtured Odd all his life is the locus of everything he holds dear: his loyal friends, his ghostly confidants, and the place where he loved and lost his soul mate, the irreplaceable Stormy Llewellyn. Yet leave it he has, to embrace the solitude and peace of an isolated monastery high in the western mountains as he tries to find a way to live fully again.

    But Odd has a knack for finding himself in the path of trouble no matter where he goes — even among the eccentric monks in their sanctuary and with his steady spirit companion, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, at his side. For a killer is stalking the ancient holy halls, and Odd is about to meet an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered.

    Odd number: don't miss the first two audiobooks in this series, Odd Thomas and Forever Odd.

    "The nice young fry cook with the occult powers is Koontz's most likeable creation." ( The New York Times)
    "An irresistibly offbeat mix of supernatural horror and laugh-out-loud humor." ( Publishers Weekly)

    Odds are you will LOVE this book!!!

    I am an avid Dean Koontz reader & fan. So of course I have already read the first & second “Odd” books. I liked them & considered them to be entertaining though I was not necessarily a big “Odd” fan.

    BUT!...This 3rd book in the series was absolutely wonderful. There are several passages that are nothing less than poetic prose; not sappy or gratuitous but enchanting. Odd was much more genuine & witty in his humor & in his observations. Though very good at figuring out where things are going, the last few chapters strayed from the assumed path & captured my complete attention to the immediate written word. During this time I was not thinking ahead to what, more than likely, was going to happen.

    This book is more about the humanity of people than the inhumanity of Dean Koontz’s monsters. He has transcended his “formula” & expanded his range. For this I am very grateful. I can not wait to see more of this from him.

    To put it simply....Brother Odd Thomas & Dean Koontz’s writing made me feel really, really good! Lighter in heart & spirit as well.

    The odder the better!!

    I don't understand some of the reviewers, I love Koontz and this is one of his best. I can't wait for Odd's next story. I am glad to see that tons of foul language is not needed to write a great novel. King's getting more foul mouthed and Koontz is getting cleaner. Thanks Dean, Keep up the good work. Maybe you are on an spiritual journey along with Odd. Enjoy the journey!!

    Disappointing Third in the Series

    I read the first two books in the Odd Thomas series - I really enjoyed the first one, but wasn't so much in love with the second. I continued on to this third entry mainly on the merit of the first book and my enjoyment of some of Dean Koontz's previous works. I am partway through the second half of this book and I don't think I'm going to finish it at this point. I felt really preached to by this book, like the author allowed his personal points of view on morality and faith to get in the way of good storytelling. I'm sure people of faith will counter that having a point of view in these areas makes for good storytelling itself but I signed up for a ghost story, not a pompous finger-wagging. It makes me reconsider whether I will read his other works in the future...

    Dorky & Loveable

    Odd is great reading when no actual thought is necessary. You gotta love this character, his adventures are hilarious, and it's nice to take a break from "heavy literature" and just read a nice little story like Odd Thomas stories sometimes.

    Odd, but terrific!

    I enjoyed the first two Odd Thomas books so much that I couldn't wait until Brother Odd came out. Dean Koontz's use of vocabulary is amazing. I often wonder what kind of mind can conceive the stories that Koontz writes. Brother Odd has an interesting interaction between accepted religion and Odd Thomas' gift, which adds a new twist to the Odd Thomas series. I look forward to more Odd Thomas novels!

    not bad

    Again not as good as the first. The plot line is better than the second book, but does not match the first book. Characters are better developed than the second book, but the evil is very difficult to visualize and understand. I would have preferred sticking with ghosts and exploring the bodocks a bit more.

    Whatever Happened to Baby Odd?

    I adored Odd Thomas the first time I met him in the original novel. He was quirky, fun, earnest, and kind. In this latest novel, he's become self-righteous and rather rigid. I was surprised at how Koontz seemed to insert diatribes against everything from the ACLU to unions to euthanasia every chance he got. Oh, and don't forget about science. I respect Mr. Koontz's right to his political beliefs (come to that, I respect Odd's rights too) but it's hard to like a character who has gone from complex to monologic. After this latest installment, I don't think I have the fortitude to meet an even older and more rigid Odd in the future. I liked the younger, more open Odd too much.

    wonderful story

    this was only my third (but by no means last) Dean Koontz Audiobook (after the first Odd Books) and I really loved it very much. I especially liked the reference to the two novels by Kate DiCamillo who are one of my absolute favorite audiobooks.
    David Aaron Baker did a beautiful job as narrator as he always does.
    A highly recommendable Audiobook !

    Tired of Konntz's political rants

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm quitting reading Koontz. I had detected just a trace of his Rush Limbaugh'esque beliefs in the first two Odd Thomas novels but I was able to let it slide and keep listening. However during a certain anti-government, anti-Union rant in this book (supposedly written from the perspective of a 21 year old kid), I took out my headphones, turned it off and began looking for a different author to listen to.
    I can hear stupidity from people all around me. I expect my authors to be more enlightened.

    The narrator is great, however.

    No no no

    Sigh. I was a huge fan of the first Odd Thomas book, so I was excited to find the sequel, "Forever Odd." But I was sadly disappointed! The story wasn't as compelling, and much of what I liked about the original book just wasn't there.

    So it was with much trepidation that I purchased this third book, in the hopes that Koontz could bring back the character that I loved. Sadly, this book has just further desecrated a great story and great character.

    What makes it so bad? It's as though Koontz has gotten too comfortable with his style of writing, and just overdoes it to a point where the story becomes a parody of itself. The story ables along to a anti-climactic conclusion, with a "plan on an Odd IV!" ending that just left a sour taste in my mouth.

    Bottom line: if you liked the 2nd Odd book, perhaps you'll like this one, but if you're like me and thought the 2nd was a let-down, pass this one on.
