Brother Odd: An Odd Thomas Novel

Dean Koontz
Narrated by:
David Aaron Baker

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
November 2006
9 hours 26 minutes
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.

I liked this way better than the second book. I loved the first the best. I agree there is way to much description on little things. I liked the flow of the story and the ending, I didn't feel like I was left hanging like some books do.

I really enjoyed all of the "Odd" books. This one is probably the least on my list but still the character is very different and you wonder what he will get into next. I hope to see another book for Odd Thomas. I would like to think he gets back to Pico Mundo again.

I gave up on the third CD, and mailed this back. It was ALL description (yes, yes, I know, the snow is blinding white and the wind is howling, blah, blah, blah )and practically no action. I couldn't take it. The first Odd Thomas was the best, and this was THE WORST.

I was pleased to see that David Aaron Baker continues to be the narrator for the Odd Thomas series. I find the series to be an enigma though. Over the top childish, yet a guilty pleasure, nonetheless. In that, Brother Odd didn't fail to disappoint, just as the previous two installments. I still like Koontz's older works though, that dealt less with the supernatural, and more with intrigue.

I thought I'd reviewed this but here goes. I liked it but not as much as the previous two. I hope the next one is better but I would recommend this since Odd Thomas is such a great character.

I am on the second CD and do not like this book. It is quirky and I don't know why but it just isn't riveting and I really would prefer riveting.
