The thing I love about odd Thomas books is you don't have to try to hard.
..Show More »/>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
This is a special Odd Thomas story set between books 4 and 5 in the series. I loved the first Odd Thomas book and have enjoyed the successive books i..Show More »n the series. However, Odd Interlude was a bit of a drag. At over 6 hours it could have been trimmed down quite a bit. The dialogue and descriptions seemed to go on forever and by about two-thirds of the way through I was just wanting the story to end. Koontz's quirky humour can be a bit wearing - at times (such as when Odd meets the truck driver) it can be spot on at other times it can be a bit grating. There's also the usual (if somewhat predictable) elements to a Koontz story - outcast/damaged lead characters, dogs, quirky humour along with some issues he's visited in the past such as Artificial Intelligence, aliens, mad scientists, secret government projects, too much government monitoring etc. If you are a big fan of the Odd Thomas series then give it a go. If you're just a casual Koontz fan then I'd say give it a miss.
