Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Best Thriller/Suspense Category, 2013
Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria.
In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.
A harrowing taste of Roseland’s terrors convinces Odd that it’s time to hit the road again. Still, the prescient Annamaria insists that they’ve been led there for a reason. Just how deep and dreadful are the mysteries Roseland and her masters have kept for nearly a century? And what consequences await whoever is brave, or mad, enough to confront the most profound breed of evil? Odd only knows. Like his acclaimed creator, the irresistible Odd Thomas is in top-notch form - as he takes on what may well be the most terrifying challenge yet in his curious career.

Odd Apocalypse; Oddly Great

The Odd series, (pun intended) is a departure from writer, Dean Koontz, normal suspense thrillers and shows off more of his humor and wit, while exploring the dark side of humanity, in these supernatural horror stories.
Odd Apocalypse is book five in a seven part series but I believe can be read and enjoyed without having read the previous books. For those who have read the other books, Odd Thomas, the familiar humble fry cook with his strange ability to see the dead, is back.
I thought this latest rendition in the series, which goes a little darker than the previous books, is better than ???Odd Hours,??? which reached number one on the New York Times best sellers list.
The narrator, David Aaron Baker, gives another stellar performance.
I am definitely an Odd fan, (no pun intended).

Like hearing from and old friend.

I love Odd Thomas, have read the first 4 books, and was concerned when I read the reviews, good and bad. Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised. I heard the same old Odd (namely, David Aaron Baker) with all his quirkiness and zenlike philosophy. Dean Koontz presented a darker story this time and I think there was some confusion in the plot, but I found I could fast forward through the dark parts and still not miss too much of the story. It was hard to understand the story at first, but it wasn't too long before I was hooked again. Most Koontz books are a little too much for me, but this "horror-lite" is about as much suspense I can take. As I wait for the next book, I know I will reread some of the old ones.

Odd bliss

So another odd Tomas book

And another great story.

The thing I love about odd Thomas books is you don't have to try to hard.

It's all so well written without over complicating the plot or adding loads of unimportant characters, who's name I can never remember.

Don't get me wrong I do love the game of thrones books and other books that want to describe every inch of a room.

But sometimes you want to just chill out and relax in to a book.

And all the odd Thomas books do this with ease. Some may say the plot doesn't really explain all that happens but life isn't always explained, and as the books are from odd Thomas's veiw, he can't explained everything.

The book is full of odds wit and you can't help chuckle to your self ( even though people look at you as off your nuts, while your on the train)

I Totaly recommend this book of your looking for a couple of days off, after a 20hr epic book.

But for me now im back to concentrating on another epic, but will be looking out for the next odd Thomas (relax) book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

back to the good old days of Deans work

Would you ever listen to anything by Dean Koontz again?

yes I'm a fan of his earlier work

What about David Aaron Baker’s performance did you like?

yes he did the best he could with the material involved.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Odd Apocalypse?

I would have scrapped the entire book!
