  2. Hooray for Odd Thomas That s really his name, by the way.Dean Koontz has made a winner with this 2003 publication that spawned ten other works as of 2015 and a 2013 film.First of all, Koontz crafted in Odd a very likeable hero Notice I did not use the term protagonist, as Odd is a real hero, doing what is right, having fun with it, and being an all around great guy Odd s heroism is emphasized by his comparison to his thoroughly unlikeable and completely unsympathetic parents By showing us O Hooray for Odd Thomas That s really his name, by the way.Dean Koontz has made a winner with this 2003 publication that spawned ten other works as of 2015 and a 2013 film.First of all, Koontz crafted in Odd a very likeable hero Notice I did not use the term protagonist, as Odd is a real hero, doing what is right, having fun with it, and being an all around great guy Odd s heroism is emphasized by his comparison to his thoroughly unlikeable and completely unsympathetic parents By showing us Odd s parents, Koontz also adds depth and character to...

  3. I usually do not read supernatural books When I read Chain Letter 2 back in high school, I went against popular opinion and rated Chain Letter 1 higher, because 2 was a premise with supernatural events.Back to Odd Thomas, I loved reading even the low key chapters Dean Koontz has a knack for oozing interesting things from even the most mundane thoughts or settings.I feared who would die in the end, and I was surprised I cried like a kid and I recommend Odd Thomas, and I m going to read book 2 I usually do not read supernatural books When I read Chain Letter 2 back in high school, I went against popular opinion and rated Chain Letter 1 higher, because 2 was a premise with supernatural events.Back to Odd Thomas, I loved reading even the low key chapters Dean Koontz has a knack for oozing interesting things from even the most mundane thoughts or settings.I feared who would die in the end, and I was surprise...

  6. This book wasn t supposed to make me cry This book was supposed to be simple, mindless fun I wasn t supposed to fall in love with the tortured and unloved by family Odd This story was supposed to be easy So why am I still crying I had not asked to be born Only to be loved. Review to come.

  7. I ve not read much Koontz but this seemed like a popular one, I m even planning to watch the film afterwards.I liked how the story was narrated through Odd, it was really easy to get a feel for the character Whilst working as a short order cook young Odd has the ability to see dead people, I instantly thought of Sixth Sense.In truth this novel reminded me of a few other well known books, the most obvious being Stephen King s The Dead Zone as Odd has a premonition that something bad is about to I ve not read much Koontz but this seemed like a popular one, I m even planning to watch the film afterwards.I liked how the story was narrated through Odd, it was really easy to get a feel for the character Whilst working as a short order cook young Odd has the ability to see dead people, I instantly thought of Sixth Sense.In truth th...
