Synopsis

“Koontz forges the kind of sweeping melodrama complete with screwball laughs, nail-biting moments, and surprises that is the bedrock of American narrative fiction.” —BooklistOnly a handful of fictional characters are recognized by first name alone. Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas is one such literary hero, who has come alive in listeners’ imaginations as he explores the greatest mysteries of this world and the next with his inimitable wit, heart, and quiet gallantry. Now Koontz follows Odd as he is drawn onward, to a destiny he cannot imagine. Haunted by dreams of an all-encompassing red tide, Odd is pulled inexorably to the sea, to a small California coastal town where nothing is as it seems.“One of the most remarkable and appealing characters in current fiction…a page-turning account…beautifully written…another literary home run.” —The Virginian-Pilot“Takes off at breakneck speed…a superb story from one of our contemporary masters.” —San Antonio Express-News

The first two Odd books were great. The third book wasn't so great and now with the fourth, Koontz has lowered the bar even more. Odd Hours is worth listening to if you're already a fan, but you might be disappointed. The book just never really gets started, and then it ends with much left to be explained. Koontz introduces some new elements that seem irrelevant. More and more of Odd's friends are hammy and tedious. The first book nearly had me in tears in the end, but Odd Hours failed to pull me in.

Odd has lost some of his unique quirkiness in the later books. A good story, but I miss the Oddball.
