“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 meas ...Continua

Series is good. Worth a read. One will want to get the next book by the end. Strong moral and religous undertones.

Odd book...
I find myself unusually lost for an opinion on this book. It was okay, it wasn't fantastic by any means but it wasn't bad either. Odd is just that, odd. He's interesting at times, at times he's a little too strange. I liked the premise of the book, s ...Continua

This just wasn't my cup of tea. The characters are rather quirky, and I did find some of them mildly interesting. I can see why others like this series. And it wasn't too overly graphic or disturbing. It was more like an overall unpleasant tone. ...Continua

Looped into the world of Odd Thomas
WOW. Now this stands for "Work of Wonder", not "Warrior of Wrath" or some other dark persona. Well you should know what I mean if you've read this book.

Odd Thomas is one of those rare novels that succeeds not only by keeping its reade

Odd Thomas is one of those rare novels that succeeds not only by keeping its readers up all night, supperless and sleepless, hands ever engaged in page-turning actions. It actually teleports them into the world of Odd Thomas, where every character feels so real and every event so personal. "Loop me in, odd one," Stormy used to say. But now it's us readers who have been looped in, and don't want to break out.

Let me digress. If psychic magnetism is what drives Odd to investigate his calling and face his destiny, then it is the same psychic magnetism that drives me to buy this book. Actually I didn't pay any attention to the first three Odd novels in the series when they were released, but when the fourth one (Odd Hours) came out, I was somehow intrigued. I don't know why. I didn't buy it however; instead I bought the third novel (Brother Odd). After a week without turning a page, I bought the second novel (Forever Odd). Still I had no desire of reading either of them. But something kept pushing me to face my "destiny", which was to find the first novel, Odd Thomas. After some searching, I finally bought it. Then I turned to the first page. Two days later, I'm here writing up my thoughts. Psychic magnetism does seem to work in the real world.

Now that I've discovered the world of Odd Thomas, I don't think I can go back to my world easily. I need to snap back to reality, but the psychic pull of Odd is so great. I think I'm going to devour the sequels in quick succession. But I can't afford to; time is not on my side. I'm feeling torn between two worlds. Just like Odd, who is torn between the living and the lingering dead. Shall I force myself to be sober, or shall I give in to the irresistible pull of psychic magnetism? ...Continua

Really enjoyed this book. Odd is, well, very odd, but that's part of what makes it fun. The whole story kept me interested and guessing what was going to happen from the very beginning. I will be getting more in this series soon!
