Odd Interlude (Novella) by Dean Koontz

Odd Interlude, Dean Koontz’s New York Times bestselling three-part digital series—now in one volume for the first time
Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs—a cozy diner, a handy service station, a cluster of cottages . . . and the Harmony family homestead presiding over it all. But when Odd Thomas and company stop to spend the night, they discover that there’s more to this secluded haven than meets the eye—and that between life and death, there is something more frightening than either.
Includes a preview of the next novel in the Odd Thomas series: Deeply Odd!
“[Odd Thomas is] one of the most remarkable and appealing characters in current fiction.”—The Virginian-Pilot
“An inventive . . . mix of suspense, whimsy and uplift.”—The Washington Post
“Odd Thomas is the greatest character Dean Koontz has ever created. He’s funny, humble, immensely likable, courageous, and just a joy to read about.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“Koontz gives [Odd Thomas] wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity—and moral outrage.”—USA Today

If you're like me and you didn't read the 3 digital short stories that comprise Odd Interlude then this is going to be a treat for you. The events in Odd Interlude take place before the events in the last Odd Thomas book, Odd Apocalypse. Odd and his traveling companion, Annamaria are driving in the Mercedes Odd borrowed from his friend Hutch Hutchison when Annamaria gets a psychic vibe that compells her to turn into a motor court called Harmony Corner. Both Odd Thomas and Annamaria seem to have a link to some higher power that wants them to fight evil and thus begins their next assignment. As soon as Odd and Annamaria check in a get separate rooms at the motor court Odd leaves Annamaria and goes to his own room where he gets himself a drink and sits down. As he drifts to sleep he feels a psychic force trying to enter his mind. This spooks him and he's suddenly wide awake. The sinister entity has introduced itself. Luckily it was unable to infiltrate Odd's unusual mind. What follows is a tale rife with suspense, a bit of sci-fi action, hints that point to another Koontz series about a guy who's allergic to sunlight, and the introduction of a plucky young heroine, Jolie Harmony, who will do anything to save her family from the evil that befell it five years ago. She proves a worthy ally to Odd as he strives to free the family. Koontz is brilliant in long-form and short-form. So if you're thinking of skipping this story because it's only 253 pages, think again. You'd be missing another superb Koontz tale.

If you have already read the three interlude stories that were released prior to Odd Apocolypse, then this is a waste of money... nothing new here... the story is great, but i don't see a need to buy it again as a single volume... can't wait for Deeply Odd to be released!!!

Odd interlude is a good addition to the series, it starts off a bit slow but the story kicks up after the first part it's not necessary to read it for odd apocalypse but it's a great read to keep you busy until deeply odd

I love the Odd Thomas ooks by Dean Koontz. For an added treat, listen to the Oddie books on CD. I have gotten quite used to Odd's voice from the wonderful reader on the cd's.  After reading for myself, I may have to listen to the cd to be truly satisfied.

The moron who claims the ebook ends with Thomas needing a car clearly needs to work on his reading comprehension. This ebook is full and complete, with a PREVIEW OF THE NEXT BOOK. The preview cuts off with him needing a car, not the Odd Thomas interludes. This ebook is complete. And yes, moron who needs to work on his reading comprehension, a bound book would have cut off the exact same way.

A short story packed full of page turning suspense. I have enjoyed the whole Odd Thomas series and can't wait for the next book, "Deeply Odd".

I didn't read the 3 short stories when they came out so it was great to by them as one small novel. Odd Interlude is a must read if you are Dean Koontz fan from way back and an Odd Thomas fan. It was as if Mr Koontz went back to the basics and wrote with more of his "old school style and ideas", but still kept true to the Odd Thomas series. If you let your imagination run with this, you may even get a little scared (in a good way). Overall, very enjoyable.

I got into reading this series only a few months ago. I can't put them down. I am now reading the last book of the series and can only hope that Mr. Koontz has plans to write a few more. They are an enjoyable and easy read. Great story line and wonderful characters. Highly recommend.
