Publisher's Summary

There's room at the inn. But you might not get out.
Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs - a cozy diner, a handy service station, a cluster of motel rooms...and the Harmony family homestead presiding over it all. But when Odd Thomas and company stop to spend the night, they discover that there’s more to this secluded haven than meets the eye - and that between life and death, there is something more frightening than either.

Should Have Been A Short Story

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 in 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.

Really enjoyable listen

Wish I'd have started with number one, however nothing lost. Great story and quite amusing character. Made me smile a few times. Well worth a listen.
