    The thing with this series is that no matter how pointless each book may seem, I still find myself enjoying each one way or another This is the third one and I still don t see the point of the series, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.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 The thing with this series is that no matter how pointless each book may seem, I still find myself enjoying each one way or another This is the third one and I still don t see the point of the series, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.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 portrayed the characters was amazing He was consistent.I now take back my statement of how I hated audiobooks I realized that if the right person narrates it, then it would turn out good, for me I ll never prefer audiobooks over text, but at least I m starting to appreciate it a lot Thanks a lot, David Erin Baker Will surely listen to his other audiobooks.3 5 stars I will be finishing this series, no matter how pointless it gets I already care enough to know how Odd s life will turn out I just hope that the next one would be better than this

    I love Odd Thomas I think he is a great character endearing, quirky, funny All the qualities I would want in a good friend And of course, his ability to see ghosts, and his fundamental compassion towards those spirits, makes him special and evenadmirable.So I was fully expecting to love this book, as I did the first two in this series Odd Thomas and Forever Odd.Unfortunately, SPOILER ALERT the climax of this book was very disappointing It lasted approximately 1 and 1 2 pages o I love Odd Thomas I think he is a great character endearing, quirky, funny All the qualities I would want in a good friend And of course, his ability to see ghosts, and his fundamental compassion towards those spirits, makes him special and evenadmirable.So I was fully expecting to love this book, as I did the first two in this series Odd Thomas and Forever Odd.Unfortunately, SPOILER ALERT the climax of this book was very disappointing It lasted approximately 1 and 1 2 pages out of the 430 pages of the book It was over so quickly as to be anti climatic There was a huge buildup fortifying the monastery against the evil forces, bringing together the Brothers and all their make shift weapons, protecting the children at all costs, and then, bang One shot and its all over It was way to simple and quick of an ending for me.And the actual ending of the book, with Odd getting out of the car and walking away with his ghost dog too cliche for me and Elvis, I thought Dean Koontz was making a mockery of Odd, reducing him from a full, three dimensional character whom I felt deeply for to a puppet, stringing him and me along forbooks,money, for Mr Koontz.This book was great, orto the point, exactly what I was expecting and enjoyed and wanted to read, until chapter 48, or page 370 Then the last 60 pages of the book disappointed me and made me feel slighted and manipulated by Mr Koontz

    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.

    I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know Thank you.Still, the best series written by Dean Koontz I admit I have always been a fan But this series is truly a great one This book was better than the previous one It has the scary factor that I felt Forever Odd lacked It was much closer to all the things I loved about the first book Hopefully, as the serie I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know Thank you.Still, the best series written by Dean Koontz I admit I have always been a fan But this series is truly a great one This book was better than the previous one It has the scary factor that I felt Forever Odd lacked It was much closer to all the things I loved about the first book Hopefully, as the series continues it will follow this and the first book path and not the second book.These books do not shy away from difficult topics though More than once I outright said oh my God Also I listened to the audiobook again, however it doesn t look like that will be a choice from here on out for me, which is fine I enjoy reading them as much as I do listening

    The title says it all Brother this was Odd Not too sure if it was A a comedy posing as a horror story or B a horror story trying to be humorous Which ever it was, for me, it failed on both accounts.A lot of the humour was just plain puerile, like the ghost of Elvis, who appears on numerous occasions, sticking his finger up his nose and wiggling out his ear This kind of puerile humour just goes on ad infinitum As a result of the ODD humour the horror story just never takes off.The book is 4 The title says it all Brother this was Odd Not too sure if it was A a comedy posing as a horror story or B a horror story trying to be humorous Which ever it was, for me, it failed on both accounts.A lot of the humour was just plain puerile, like the ghost of Elvis, who appears on numerous occasions, sticking his finger up his nose and wiggling out his ear This kind of puerile humour just goes on ad infinitum As a result of the ODD humour the horror story just never takes off.The book is 440 pages long, about 140 pages too long This could have been achieved by removing most, if not all, of the quantum physics theorising and the inane humour As for the cliff hanger ending it was just like the rest of the book much ado about nothing.Recommended only if you have read and enjoyed the other Odd Thomas books

    I didn t care that much for the second book in the Odd Thomas series but this third book really kicked it up a notch I thought the end came a bit too easily, but there was a lot of genuine tension throughout the book and some very nice description to go along with interesting characters.

    This is the fourth time I ve actually read Brother Odd Good thing for Goodreads to help me keep track of how many times Brother Odd is among my favorites in the Odd Thomas series For a long time, I said it was my favorite but now I am rather partial to Odd Interlude and Odd Apocalypse.I like the idea of creating our own reality which I hadn t seen in Koontz s works since By the Light of the Moon , From the Corner of His Eye and most recently experienced in Ashley Bell.The most impressive thin This is the fourth time I ve actually read Brother Odd Good thing for Goodreads to help me keep track of how many times Brother Odd is among my favorites in the Odd Thomas series For a long time, I said it was my favorite but now I am rather partial to Odd Interlude and Odd Apocalypse.I like the idea of creating our own reality which I hadn t seen in Koontz s works since By the Light of the Moon , From the Corner of His Eye and most recently experienced in Ashley Bell.The most impressive thing to me is still the fact view spoiler that Boo is a Ghost Dog I never saw that coming the first time I read the book and still upon re reading the book, am impressed the way Dean writes this character into the story hide spoiler The other thing I am impressed with is the information wisdom given to us by the character named Rodion Romanovich.Some passagesHumanity is a parade of fools, and I am at the front of it, twirling a baton.______In this world where too many are willing to see only the light that is visible, never the Light Invisible, we have a daily darkness that is night, and we encounter another darkness from time to time that is death, the deaths of those we love, but the third and most constant darkness that is with us every day, at all hours of every day, is the darkness of the mind, the pettiness and meanness and hatred, which we have invited into ourselves, and which we pay out with generous interest ______ Quantum theory gives us reason to believe that on a deep structural level, every point in the universe is in some ineffable way the same point..The interconnectedness of every point in the universe is so complete that if an enormous flock of birds bursts into flight from a marsh in Spain, the disturbance of the air caused by their wings will contribute to weather changes in Los Angeles ______ Mr Thomas, any scientist will tell you that in nature many systems appear to be chaotic, but when you study them long enough, strange order always underlies the appearance of chaos ______ The two of us might seem to be in this place, at this time, only by coincidence, but both an honest scientist and a true man of faith will tell you there are no coincidences
