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.
Released for the Never Judge a Book by its Cover Challenge- week 23(double letters in title)
