"The dead don't talk. I don't know why". But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn. Maybe he has a gift, maybe it's a curse, Odd has never been sure, but he tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out. Sometimes they want justice, and Odd's otherworldly tips to Pico Mundo's sympathetic police chief, Wyatt Porter, can solve a crime. Occasionally they can prevent one. But this time it's different. A mysterious man comes to town with a voracious appetite, a filing cabinet stuffed with information on the world's worst killers, and a pack of hyena-like shades following him wherever he goes. Who the man is and what he wants, not even Odd's deceased informants can tell him. His most ominous clue is a page ripped from a day-by-day calendar for August 15. Today is August 14th. In less than twenty-four hours, Pico Mundo will awaken to a day of catastrophe. As evil coils under the searing desert sun, Odd travels through the shifting prisms of his world, struggling to avert a looming cataclysm with the aid of his soul mate and an unlikely community of allies that includes the King of Rock 'n' Roll. His account of two shattering days when past and present, fate and destiny converge is the stuff of our worst nightmares--and a testament by which to live: sanely if not safely, with courage, humor, and a full heart that even in the darkness must persevere.… (més)

I loved this book. Odd is such an interesting character. I am so enjoying getting to know him. I won't go into much details of the story so as to not ruin the story for other readers. I will start the next book tonight. I plan on sending all 3 to another bookcrosser that wants to read the series. ( )

I started off not liking this much and ended up liking it a lot, so the 3 star rating reflects that (I'd probably give the first 2/3s of the book 2 stars and the remainder 4).
Koontz is a really good plotter and throws some great ideas into the book, but I can't help finding his prose overly flowery at times. He's got a thesaurus and goddam is he going to use it. On top of that the lead character and narrator can be a bit annoying at times, he's just so GOOD in a way that a lot of Koontz's heroes are. The whole book is infected with a slightly preachy moralism that really grates.
But.... once you get over that it's a really decent dark fantasy thriller and there's a lot of fun to be had with it. ( )

Odd Thomas is an engaging character and the other characters were vividly drawn. I would have cried more at the end if I hadn't been driving and listening to the book. Well done. ( )
  Dairyqueen84 | Mar 15, 2022 |
This is one of my favorite book series. Read the book. Seen the movie. Read the book again. You feel what Thomas feels. And I don't know why I would want to feel what he feels. Odd. ( )

***Who sucked me in***
Riddle Solved in her 'Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz | Book Opinion' video published on 25 September 2017.

SIDENOTE: I wasn't really ever going to read the stories by Dean Koontz. I thought he was someone who wrote cheesy stories. And maybe he does but Riddle Solved made it sound interesting at least.

And who am I kidding... I like cheesy stories.
