Odd Thomas

Odd Thomas (Odd Thomas, #1)Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Dean Koontz eBook for $5 sounded like a good deal, and one of my friends gave this book five stars. This is the first of four in the Odd Thomas series, so it seemed like a winner.

First name "Odd," last name "Thomas." What kind of parents give a kid a name like that? We do find out. Odd Thomas sees dead people. He takes it on as his calling to save the world from the predators, creeps, satanists and other bad guys in his little world of the town of Pico Mundo.

It's a wild ride, a heart-thumping suspense-filled supernatural thriller that had me spooked, checking under the bed and in the closets at night. I give it four stars, but I don't think my heart can take another one in this series.

My sister loves Dean Koontz's books. If memory serves me right, she's pretty much got a nice library of his books. Not sure if she read this one already so I'll have to clue her in.
