A pretty mixed bag for me on this one - on an emotional level, it was satisfying, and I did cry for the last 15 pages or so. It's been a long investment in this character, and saying goodbye was bittersweet. As far as plot goes, however, the whole novel felt convoluted and rushed - there seemed to be a lack of motive, a lot of confusing detail, and a general sense that the actual story of the novel wasn't the author's top priority. It made me feel sad, a bit, because the characters that Koontz has created over the course of the series really deserved a better send-off. I would say if you are not already invested in Odd, I would probably pass on this novel.
