I was in the mood for a long cry so I read this book. Yes, I know how that sounds, but it's true. I first read Odd Thomas back in 2003 when it was first published. I had just moved to DC and was reeling from having to move after just burying my mother the month before. So reading this book I had no ...

Let me preface my review by saying that I saw the movie a few years ago and enjoyed it very much, so I fully expected to enjoy the book. And I did. However, I couldn't stop picturing Anton Yelchin as Odd and it made me very sad. That being said, the movie was a pretty fair representation of the b...

Odd Thomas can see ghost. He sometimes helped ghost to find their killers so that they could reach the next stage, whatever that is. This is the first book of the Odd series focusing of a nice nature young man Odd Thomas. The style is like a autobiography. It is kind of nice to see a not so scary...

Odd Thomas sees dead people and, sometimes, he tries to help them. He lives in small town Pico Mundo, California, the Mojave desert. He’s a short order cook for a local diner. He keeps his life simple (no car, no cell phone) because these dead people complicate it. And more complications just walked...

It's so hard revisiting a book like this. Like fight club and gone girl, you can only read this once and then are scarred on what you didn't know then, but know now. Review pending...

The best thing about Odd Thomas is the title character Odd Thomas. Koontz managed to create a compelling character. Obviously he thought so since he went to write a series of books based on his title character. Odd, just an ordinary fry cook, has extraordinary powers. He can communicate with the dea...

I have tried many Dean Koontz books but had yet to find one that I liked until Odd Thomas. I saw the movie on Netflix and loved it so I decided to give the book a chance. I'm glad I did. The writing is done really well. The characters are incredible. I love the voice of the main character. I love th...
