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! xoxo_leigh

This is a really good read. So good befoe you know it your done. What would you do if you had a room where all you had to do is think of something and it appears? Add some Nuns and Munks a few ghosts with Odd right in the middle of it. You get............well a great story.

Brother Odd is like a true sequel in comparison to the interludesque Forever Odd, and by each chapters end you wont be able to put it to rest. If your a fan of the first book or any of Koontzs' plethora of other offerings theres no dissapointment here if your looking for a deep story filled with revealing backstory and characters as well as writhing suspense and horror.

This book grabbed me right away. It's not a work of classic literature, but it does what it is supposed to do and it engages and entertains.

Yet again Mr. Koontz shows us Odd's unwavering selflessness as he puts everyone else ahead of his own 'wants' r/e: his broken heart, his yearning for a little peace- or any semblance of normality in his life. As well as the other 'unsung heroes' we are introduced to in this portion of the 'Odd' series. The book is so descriptive (as is almost all of Mr. Koontz work) you get in and you'll be there till the "read" is finished.

I loved the first Odd Thomas book I read--so much so, that I visited the library to find another in the series. I don't think this one was the second, so perhaps it being a bit out of order made things a little less enjoyable. Odd Thomas is a wonderful, funny character, as is Rodion Romanovich, Brother Knuckles, and a few other key characters. In fact it was the characters and witty dialogue much more than the plot that kept me reading. I'm curious if others felt the same.

This chapter in the Odd Thomas collection is great. Once you pick it up you cannot put it down. It is packed with the twists and turns that we have came to expect from our friend Odd.

Odd Thomas is one of my favorite characters. I love that through or in spite of his brokenness, his light shines bright with love and grace.

This book is falsely advertised as being published in 2016 when it was actually published several years earlier. Don't be fooled.

It’s been awhile since I read the previous book in this series, so maybe I’m mistaken, but to me, this book felt freakier than the others. It’s pretty creepy. There’s an evil monster made of bones of joints attacking the monastery where Odd went to chill from his crazy life. It seems that he just can’t take a break from saving the innocent. I liked it, and I will be continuing the series.

Odd Thomas can see and communicate with the 'lingering' dead and also see some creatures (possibly supernatural, but perhaps something else entirely) he calls Bodachs, who are attracted to up-coming tragic events. In this book Odd is still recovering from the emotional impact left from a mass shooting in a mall and the death of his long-time love & fiance, Stormy. Leaving his hometown of Pico Mundo where the events took place, Odd is spending time in a monastary/orphanage in the mountains. He is also spending time helping in the monastary's kitchen. As he awaits watching his first snowfall, Odd notices several Bodach that have also been sighted by the dog Boo that roams the monastary. When the two discover the Bodachs hovering over several children, Odd knows that he must reveal his gifts and his knowledge of possible events to the monks & nuns to care for the children. It would also be helpful to know something about the Russian who is also staying at the monastary. Is he really just a Librarian, or is there more to him then he lets on. As the story progresses we learn a lot more about the pasts of the other people who have come to the monastary for a variety of reasons and discover that something horrible is stalking the grounds and walls of the monastary. Can Odd find enough allies to aide him when the confrontation with the unholy begins? As usual in the Odd Thomas stories, Koontz has Odd telling the story in flashback as he writes of it for his friend and benefactor the detective/mystery writer, Little Ozzie. In this way we get some foreshadowing of events, but the author keeps enough hidden from the reader that there are still surprises. While Odd is out of his usual surroundings, he is accompanied by the ghost of Elvis who may finally be ready to move on.
