Format: Paperback
Odd Interlude is a charming shorter story in Koontz's Odd Thomas series and chronologically comes between the action of Odd Hours and Odd Apocalypse.

Odd Thomas is driving, just roaming without destination, with his companions, enigmatic Annamaria, ghost dog Boo and Labrador Raphael when he feels himself drawn towards Harmony Corner. The the diner, garage and motel are run by the extended Harmony family and it is Donny that Odd meets first. Donny is hideously disfigured but has a sweet nature and Odd is enjoying talking to him, but then something within Donny changes and the affable man becomes hostile.

Odd has stumbled into a wasp's nest, a thrilling story that brings together Koontz's Odd Thomas and Moonlight Bay series. Secret bases, science gone wrong, AI and aliens, innocence, fortitude, hubris and bravery, strong characterisation, these are themes common to many of Koontz's books but in Odd Interlude they are particularly satisfyingly brought together.

Really pleased with this! Great new addition to the Odd series, although i did read it out of order!
best to read after Odd apocalypse (number 5,)and before 'Deeply Odd'(number 6) if possible.
Edge of seat stuff! Enjoy.

I love Odd Thomas. Dean Koontz has made a wonderful discovery with this character and this story fits neatly between books 4 and 5 of the series. The story rattles along, but Dean takes enough time to get you interested in all the characters. I wish it was out in hardback so that it could sit even more proudly on my bookshelf alongside the other Odd books.

I'm a fan of Odd Thomas and didn't find this wee book disappointing.
Lots of the usual supernatural adventures going on, and although a tiny bit predictable,
Still enough edge of seat moments to keep me hooked til the end.
I'd recommend this book to any other Odd fans out there

What was Koontz thinking??
I gave part 1+2 of the kindle version 2 stars each, not sure why, maybe because it was the beginning and middle of the story and had the opportunity to really go an awesome route; but sadly, it never did.
Remember the X-Files? How the overall mythology of the series was the most interesting aspect, occasionally halted by a monster-of-the-week episode, that could be either really lame or really disturbing? Well, Odd Interlude is like a really lame monster-of-the-week episode, with a plot that could easily have been based off of an X-Files episode.
Even in this short story, Koontz rambles on about flowers and houses and delivers long-winding and far-fetched desciptions of the aliens - yes, ALIENS! (Koontz has written some older, great alien stories, but they don't belong in the Odd Thomas universe) - that he's up against. All of this would be okay, if there at some point was any sence of danger, but there isn't. All is so safe and tidy as to become downright annoying.
Ultimately, it seems like a teen wrote it, what with the alien-snake-human-thingie with six(!!) arms and the (over)use of the word s***head in one of the first chapters of part one. I have nothing against curse words at all, but this just seemed juvenile.
Skip this and jump directly to Odd Apocalypse.

Love it as I love all Dean Koontz . His novels are my guilty secret pleasure , yes I know they are all very 'samey' good always triumphs over evil , dogs are mans best friend and people with learning disabilities are all the special people of the world . Mr Koontz never tires of pressing the point , endlessly . However I do love to read him occasionally when I tire of zombie novels written by people who cannot spell , write grammatically , punctuate or write a story .
Something Mr Koontz does amazingly well.

I am an Odd fan, and I liked the first two novels and didn't mind the third. I kinda miss him having a silent ghost companion, think I missed what happened to the one after Elvis, think it was Frank Sinatra. But the novel is ok, good pace, good writing and flow. As a reader of Dean Koontz you find themes flow between his books, as with this one.

In the beginning Odd was more an extraordinary guy who can see dead people and can foresee bad things to happen when bodags ( dead spirits) arrive at a certain place. But you can see that Odd more and more develops into a hero and meets with horror and evil. In the first books he mainly had to fight against human evil but more and more he meets horror and evil not that human. The setting in this book is great, Odd arrives at a small town where he has the feeling that something is very wrong and soon he finds out that an evil spirit can take over and control the human beings in it. If you read the Moonlight Bay series you understand more what caused the evil but it's not a must. Spooky and scary ending.
