A very Odd and wild installment, January 2, 2013

Despite it being short, it is probably the most wildest and crazy installment in the Odd Thomas series yet. It was a good read, I read it in less than 24 hours, but thankful it wasn’t an actually installment of the main series. It doesn’t offer much to Odd’s character or background. I feel like this was just more of random side adventure that Koontz just wrote for fun, thus why it’s called “Odd Interlude.” So don’t pick up this book expecting it to deepen the Odd Thomas series, but rather just enjoy the wild wide it offers the reader.

Annamaria is barely an afterthought in this volume. While I thought that was attributable to the interlude nature of the installment, she doesn’t have much of a role in later books either. While her place in those books seems limited to that of a plot device, however, she’s just sort of irrelevant here. Jolie–the girl who helps Odd–is a great new character, and I enjoyed getting to experience part of the narrative from her perspective. Given that narrative change, however, I would have expected her to become an ongoing member of the cast of characters, which she does not. There aren’t as many great side characters as in the first three books, but definitely more than in book four.

Odd Interlude isn’t as beautifully quotable as the first two books in the series, but it pulled me in much quicker than books three and four. (It didn’t tug on my emotions enough to have the teary tidbits from the first two books, but it was still quite good.) The tension and pacing were enjoyable, and the details of the plot had enough complexity and interest to them to drag me along quite readily. The genre change was executed skillfully, such that I didn’t feel wrenched out of the immersion.

While Odd Interlude isn’t the hilarious, whimsical, beautiful thrill ride of the earliest books (Odd Thomas and Forever Odd), it’s absolutely a return to better plotting from Odd Hours. It’s about equal to Brother Odd in plot depth, but better in terms of pacing and tension.

Never get into a car with Odd Thomas, June 26, 2013

Now that I’ve finished reading, listening to, listening AND reading, or simply watching 64 of Dean Koontz’ books, stories and adaptations of same, I thought I might comment on one. Don’t get me wrong; I like “Odd Interlude”, but I don’t believe it started out as an Odd Thomas story. I’m guessing that the intent was to have a new Chris Snow novel, but the story took a life of its own, and well… sometimes stories write themselves despite our initial intentions.

I’m not merely basing this conjecture on the fact that it takes place in Chris’ neighborhood, or that the same government complex gave rise to yet more bad guys from the same cloth, but even some of the setting (for instance, the interpolation of a wide-spread smoke-cover) seems to have been designed for Chris’ movements. In fact, some of the most intriguing elements of the read (for me, at least) involved speculating as to what Chris Snow would do, and whether he would show up soon.

Ultimately, the book turned out to be a great vehicle for Odd, but given the timeline from Book One through the most current book, “Deeply Odd”, I’m glad I’m not him. I would rather get some more rest between outings. Oh, and like I said in the title, don’t get into a car with Odd Thomas. The experience can be harrowing.
