Brother Odd: An Odd Thomas Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dean Koontz

Narrated By: David Aaron Baker

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: November 2006

Duration: 9 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

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 the King of Rock ’n’ Roll at his side. For a killer is stalking the ancient holy halls, and Odd is about to encounter an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered….

    We all knew that life would not let Odd hide in a monastery, but I am glad that he got to rest for a bit. It's a philosophical book as many of Koontz books are. The focus of this one is the study of proving the existence of God. The events that lead up to Odd's leaving are deadly.

    An amazing work by Mr. Koontz. Aside from the suspense/mystery aspects of the plot itself, Mr. Koontz paints an interesting and accurate picture of life inside a traditional Catholic monastery.

    Another outstanding bit of fiction by Koontz, it not only keeps your interest, but will entertain you for hours with a very quirky story.

    Another good Odd one, it appears that no where or one is safe from problems, can't wait for the next one, although I like it much better when he is in town and around the regular cast and crew.

    LOVE all the "Odd" books by Dean Koontz. Beautifully written and beautifully performed (read). Hope Koontz is writing another one!

    HUH? Too long and too weird. Thought I liked this author, but he goes out out out on bizarre tangents...too bizarre for me

    Not a big Dean Koontz fan, but the Odd Thomas series is fun, and worth the time if you're looking for something of a "medium" intensity. Bounces back from the weak "Forever Odd" sequel.

    I loved Odd Thomas (as it seems a great many other did) and was excited by a follow up .... and this was good, but it felt very short. The listing said unabridged .... maybe it was because I wanted it to go on, or maybe because this plot line was less intricate that the first .... ... I liked it in any event, and think this narrator does a spot on job of capturing the respectful innocence of Odd's spoken voice and his inner sarcasm.

    I really loved this series. The second was not as good as the first, so my expectations were a bit low for the third one. The third book in the series was as good as the first. I loved it and if you like the Odd books, you will love this one.

    I am a big fan of Dean Koontz, especially the Odd Thomas books. I liked this one, but not as much as the first one. I think it is probably a hard task to top the first one. But if you like the other Odd Thomas books, you'll like this too. It has all the things you like about Odd Thomas, including the King.
