This book has indeed rendered me speechless. I even shed a few tears at one point. When you read it, you'll know the precise moment I speak of. By far, this is my favourite of the series! I read this one in one day because I just couldn't manage to put it down. Was eager to find out what the next page will reveal. I highly recommend reading these!

It wasn't the plot that kept me reading but the likable, funny and well developed characters of Brother Knuckles and the mysterious, witty and unpredictable Rodion Romanovich.

I really liked the fact that Koontz goes back to creating wonderful characters and dialog but sadly he didn't utilize Odd's ability to see the dead as much as I expected and enjoy.

However, Odd Thomas still gives me enough promise and excitement that I'm eager to start book #4 hoping it will head back into the direction of Odd Thomas #1. He's just too likable of a character not to want to read more!

    Odd Thomas is an annoying character; he pretends to humility but

    Odd Thomas is an annoying character; he pretends to humility but is devoured by pride about his so-called gift.  the behavior of the other characters defies belief also; in what community of sensible adults would an uneducated, unemployed young twetp be deferred to and his apparently senseless orders followed, asthey are in this book?  I son't care how many police chiefs (also unbelievable) vouch for him.  on the other hand, I keep reading the books, so something about them must be right.  If I ever figure out what it is, I'll let you know.

    Disappointing

    I was really disappointed in Brother Odd. It was a straight horror novel and had nothing to do with Odd's talent of seeing dead people and doing something about it. I hope the next novel goes back to the story of Odd Thomas and doesn't continue the generic horror story.

    LOVE TO READ

    I was disappointed when I read this book (sorry). I love to read Dean Koontz, he is my absolute favorite writer. However, this book seemed to lack a good climax. That we always get from his writing. I will definitely read Odd Hours. I still love to read Dean Koontz. But I do think it could have been better.

    Disappointed

    As a Dean Koontz fan, I was eagerly awaiting the release of this final book of the trilogy. However, I was greatly disappointed with it...I found it to be a very slow moving story and lacking substance and basically a ridiculous book...for me, it was a total waste of time. If this had been my 1st experience with Koontz books, I would probably not read any other Koontz books.

    I am a Koontz fan, BUT.......

    This may be the only way to perhaps get a message to Dean Koontz so I took it: t'would be better by far if you had dedicated as much time and effort (in quality) to the Christopher Snow novels especially the third that was expected from you. The Seize the Night, was very disappointing compared to Fear Nothing which I have read over and over just to be inside a great story with great characters. I did read the second of the Odd Thomas trilogy and was disappointed with that one too, thus I will not be buying the third. I guess, as with most authors, you owe the reading public nothing except what you do turn out but just in case you care, this is one reader's take on what you (write) and have produced, quality-wise.
