Odd Interlude by Dean Koontz


My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Odd Interlude was originally a three-part ebook, but apparently was so well liked, it was recently released in paperback.  Since Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas is one of my favorite characters, ever, I had to get it as soon as it came out. The ongoing saga of Oddie’s life is following a particular arc which is drawing to a close before too many more books.  Odd Interlude is just that–an interlude in Odd’s life. A side-story, if you will.  And an amazingly creepy side-story, at that.  As always, Koontz lets you know how fond he is of Odd Thomas, and by doing so, makes you fond of him, as well.  This story lacked a bit of the humor present in most of these books, but I attribute that to the fact that there was a dramatic and terrible story to be told in fewer pages than usual. 

One of the things I really loved about Odd Interlude is that it connected itself to another set of Koontz books that I enjoyed years ago, Fear Nothing and Seize The Night.  The overlap was well done, and made Odd’s tale even more believable, because I already knew that horrible things had happened before in Moonlight Bay, involving another character I thoroughly enjoyed, Christopher Snow.

I have my own ideas of what Oddie’s fate is going to be by the end of this series, and I believe it is going to make me cry. (Not to worry.  Lots of things do.) I think Odd will get his deepest wish, and while I will be happy for him in that regard, I just know it is going to break my heart.  This is all conjecture on my part, you understand, but there have been hints.  I’m just sayin’….

Odd Interlude was a great way to tide me over until the next Odd Thomas book, Deeply Odd,  is released in May.  If you are an Odd Thomas fan, you will definitely want to check it out.  And if not, I highly recommend the whole series, starting with Book #1, cleverly entitled…tada…Odd Thomas.  He’s a character you will never forget.
