Culture & Criticism Since 2003
Koontz is revered for his ability to keep you on the edge of your seat with his stories, and Saint Odd serves as the perfect example of why his writing works so well. In this gripping tale of Odd Thomas, the reader comes face-to-face with his alter ego, forced to confront all sides of himself. Koontz’s Odd Thomas series has captivated readers because it connects them with the parts of the psyche that seemingly lay buried until someone – or something- prods them awake. Here, in the series’ riveting conclusion, Koontz leads us to see that the things that scare us the most about ourselves also end up being the most enriching. Read by David Aaron Baker, whose voice resonates with depth, nuance and grace. This book is so good that the 9 hour running time seems like only 30 short minutes.
