Bought off a library sale shelf, but it's in good condition.

Not one of my absolute favorite Dean Koontz books, but one I enjoyed.

It seemed familiar to me, like a half dozen programs on television about people who see ghosts. It reminded me a lot of Ghost Whisperer with some of Dead Like Me Thrown in.

Still, I really enjoyed it. Dean Koontz made Odd Thomas (yes, that is his actual name) a fascinating character who works both within the legal system and outside of it. He reminds me a bit of his Christopher Snow character (who I love more, to be honest) but Odd Thomas and his story most certainly stand on their own. The ending was predictable but still a shock.

The story has everything- the truly evil, a desire to save lives, stuggles with morality, an unfolding mystery, supernatural elements (from ghosts to time variations), true love, and Elvis. Can't have a wonderful story without Elvis, can you?

I plan to start the sequel 'Forever Odd' tomorrow.

His account of these shattering hours, in which past and present, fate and destiny converge, is a testament by which to live- an unforgettable fable for our time destined to rank among Dean Koontz's most enduring works.

At chapter two, I found a ticket stub to a Colorado Rokies vs Texas Rangers game. Section 119, Row 22, Seat 9 :-)

Received this book a while back. I got it for my wife who was looking for a book to read over the summer and she has read and enjoyed several other Koontz books. But alas it was a little too ''supernatural'' for her. Personally Odd Thomas is one of my favorite Koontz books. I have read the other 2 books in this trilogy as well. Off to find someone to Ray this book forward.
