Every so often a character so captures the hearts and imaginations of listeners that he seems to take on a life of his own long after the chapter ends. For such a character, one book is not enough - listeners must know what happens next. With the emotional power and sheer storytelling artistry that are his trademarks, Koontz takes up once more the story of a unique young hero and an eccentric little town in a tale that is equal parts suspense and terror, adventure and mystery - and altogether irresistibly odd. We're all a little odd beneath the surface. He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet - an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye - and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead - it's something that just happened.… (més)

There is something endearing and interesting about the main character, though, and I do mean beyond his “special” paranormal abilities. A fry cook with occult skills is a unique character. Very noticeably Koontz makes Odd Thomas much wiser than he ought to be. Odd Thomas is likeable. You root for him because he is unlucky yet he seems to still be humble and honest and a generally good person.

The storyline in this one is a doozy, I am not sure it has believeable setup motives. It hinges on the bizarre – and I mean the really bizarre. So bizarre that its truly difficult to be horrified correctly. This novel is not for all readers. The dark twisted stuff is dark and twisted, no matter how Koontz balances it with wit. Still, Odd Thomas is an interesting character and worth reading a few novels for. ( )

Odd is lost. This is a between time. I'm not retelling the story, but giving the consequence of what happened. Odd decides that he can't stay in Pico Mundo. ( )

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.

So for this book, I had started out listening to the audiobook but finished the last fourth of the book on my kindle cause my time for the audiobook ran out and I needed to return it to the library. The narrator was good though. I like him and he fits well with how I perceive Odd in my head. I may listen to instead of reading more in the series and I hope he continues to do them.

So this one didn't have the same scare that the first did. It lacked the Bodachs. Which were super a huge deal in the scare factor from the first book. It was also more casual, less rush, then the first. It was still really funny though and there were some scary moments. The chick in the book is super crazy too. I think it's interesting how the book swerves off out of story to tell little facts. The way it's done adds to Odd's character in my opinion. The book ended with a great setup for the next book.

How I choose my rating:
1* Hated it. I had to force myself to finish it.
2** Didn't like it. I didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other than for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this book's content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

A good continuation from the first Odd book.... although it seemed as though it was too short and not enough character development.. the overall book seemed very secluded and in a separate world than the first... as if he left Pico Mundo all together... where's all his friends? they were hardly used at all or consulted with... not like the first book... Odd relied on them heavily then.. hoping the next book has more of the Odd from the first book... ( )

This book is for Trixie, though she will never read it. On the most difficult days at the keyboard, when I despaired, she could always make me laugh. The words good dog are inadequate in her case. She is a good heart and a kind soul, and an angel on four feet.
