Another entry by Dean Koontz about the sweet wonderful humble Odd Thomas, that can see dead people. Again, the characters feel like old comfortable friends that you love. In this story Odd much search for his crippled friend who has been kidnapped by a demented person that wants to lure Odd and use his powers. Very well written and I hated for it to end.

Dead people speak to young fry cook Odd Thomas. So it's natural that he investigates when a fiend goes missing. But all is not as it seems. Another thriller from Dean Koontz.

Wasn't crazy about this sequel. I loved the first and this one just didn't deliver. Odd even says so himself near the end when he pans his own writings. Nevertheless, should be read.

Good book, not quite as good as the first (Odd Thomas) in the series but still pretty good. There was a few times when it was a little slow and was repeating some of the back story already laid down in the first books, but still a funny quirky character with a different enough plot to keep you going till the end.

After the first book, I was hooked on the character of Odd Thomas. This second in the series did not let me down. The action, as it takes place is not on as large of a scale, but still takes you completely into the world of Odd, and what he "can do". Along the way, you gain further insight into the life of Odd, his friendships and a little more of a glimpse into his childhood. Dean Koontz once again threads the elements of the supernatural into the story beautifully. Highly recommended read for anyone with a little taste for thrillers or Sci-Fi.

The blurb pretty much says it all. One caution, though---Don't read this one late at night when you are the only one at home.

From back cover: 'I see dead people. But then, by God I do something about it!'
Odd Thomas never asked for his special ability. He's just an ordinary guy trying to live a quiet life in the small desert town of Pico Mundo. Yet ht feels an obligation to do right by his otherworldly confidants, and that's why he's won heart on both sides of the divide between life and death.
But when a childhood friend disappears, Odd discovers something worse than a dead body and embarks on a heart-stopping battle of will and wits with an enemy of exceptional cunning. In the hours to come there can be no innocent bystanders, and every sacrifice can tip the balance between despair and hope. You're invited on an unforgettable journey through a world of terror and transcendence to wonders beyond imagining. And you can have no better guide than ODD THOMAS.

Odd finds himself in another adventure. This time he has a friend that is kidnapped by some strange people. He discovers that his friend is being held in a burnt out old casino.
The villian, Datura is very strange and wants Odd to show her the dead.
Odd of course cannot show her and she is pissed. The book goes on to a rescue of Danny and Odd getting away in a series of tunnels.
this one was not as well written as the first.
But i love Odd Thomas.

One cant help but fall in love with Odd. He is the kind of guy whose simple honesty and humility grips your heart. The character of Odd Thomas is an enigma to most who know him, but his unusual ability to see the walking dead gives such depth to the person of Odd that your heart will ache for him sometimes. Hed like to help them move on and leave this world. In this story, Koontz takes Odds gift and, unlike the first book, uses it to his disadvantage, or so it seems. He is pursued by a maniacal cultist who wants the power to conjure up the dead for her own gain. A gripping story of friendship and trust that leads to hours of suspense-filled reading. You wont put it down. Heartfelt and provocativea wonderfully rich and entertaining story.Chicago Sun-Times

I love Dean Koontz and I love Odd Thomas. But, with that said, this book was my least favorite of the Odd Thomas series. For me it was a little too dark and macabre. Koontz usually introduces a warm fuzzy character here and there to keep a balance and that doesn't happen here. So, my blood runs cold the whole story. Keep a warm blanket and warm drink handy during your read and you'll do just fine. For those those tuned into that type of thing should find this story their favorite of the lot!

Not long after Odd Thomas became a hero in the town of Pico Mundo by taking down a sniper at the local mall with plans of blowing it sky-high, Odd finds himself once again helping out both the living and dead.

His best friend, Danny, who suffers from brittle bone disease, is missing from his home where he lived with his adoptive father, Dr. Wilbur Jessup. Dr. Jessup had only minutes before arrived at Odd's apartment seeming to appeal for help--he was, like so many people who drift in and out of Odd's life--no longer alive in the real world. He had been murdered, and now Danny is missing.

Odd sets off to find his missing friend, using his "physic magnetism", as he calls it, and finds a woman who is so desperate to experience supernatural activities that she'll use Danny as a pawn to get what she wants.

With the same cast of characters from ODD THOMAS--Ollie, the overweight novelist; Terri, Odd's employer and friend; Chief Porter, the town's police head; Terrible Chester, Ollie's cat; and the ghost of Elvis--Odd is set upon another adventure that contains murder, mayhem, and one bad-a** evil woman.

This continuation of one of Koontz's best characters is a true winner. I read the book in one day, and I'm left with wanting to know where Odd will go from here. After the death of his beloved fiancee, Stormy, the previous August, Odd has been slightly adrift--and at the end of FOREVER ODD, we get some indication of where his life is leading, but not a clear-cut picture.

Definitely another winner by the incomparable Mr. Koontz, FOREVER ODD is not a story to be missed.

There's so much more to any of us than meets the eye..that goes triple for Odd Thomas. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead-its something that just happened. But as the unofficial ambassador between our world and theirs, he's got a duty to do the right thing. A childhood friend has disappeared. The worst is feared. But once Odd applies his unique talents to the task of finding the missing person, he discovers something worse than a dead body, encounters an enemy of exceptional cunning, and spirals into a vortex of terror.

This had to be one of the dullest books Ive read from start to finish in a long time. Normally, Id have quit after 100 pages, but because it had such good reviews, I really thought it would be more interesting. At first I thought it was the first-person narrative, but since Ive enjoyed many other series written from this point-of-view, I knew that wasnt it. Im not sure exactly what made it so slow, but Im sure that the many pages of drawn-out chase scenes didnt help any. Then, when it finally did get good, it didnt last for very long, and by then I was so close to the end, I just finished it with hopes of a great ending. However, that just didnt pan out either, and I wont be rushing to read the next book in the series any time soon.

I absolutely LOVED "Odd Thomas" and ran to the bookstore when "Forever Odd" came out. However, after #2 (Forever Odd) I skipped, rather than ran for #3 (Brother Odd). When "Odd Hours" came out, I sighed and strolled to get it, without a sense of urgency and feeling somehow obligated to read it. I love the character of Odd, but the stories just run downhill as the series progresses. I suggest the rest of the books if, like me, you REALLY like the character, but don't expect anything close to as good a read as the first one.

I'm sure I'll drag butt to the bookstore if there's a #5.......

First of all, don't read this book unless you have already read Odd Thomas as it contains spoilers for the first book. Just as we don't read the last page first and first page last, or anywhere in between, we also should read books in order for the sake of the story :)

Forever Odd is a good book. With his usual artful style, Koontz flips your emotions as if on a remote control. You feel the fear of the situation, the tension, the thrill, and then flip right back into laughter... and awe. Koontz can tug at your heart strings, but leave you with enough humor that you aren't completely devestated and can smile in spite of it all.

Odd Thomas is a special character. He is one we should all strive to emulate. Compassionate, intelligent, humble, yet confident. And he is surrounded by special people, although they play far less of a role in this book than the previous book.

Not as good as the first, but a close second. Well worth the read and the space on your bookshelf.

Though not as good as the first book, Odd Thomas, Forever Odd is still worth the read.

Odd Thomas is eternal. Koontz's character is so well developed you feel you know Odd Thomas. He's the boy next door, the friendly, easy-going guy at the supermarket...with a twist. Odd didn't ask for his extraordinary gift...aspires to have a quiet life free from the inner turmoil he faces daily, but the humble fry cook once again swallows his own desires and does what he knows he must do - face his fears and battle the evil that has come to Pico Mundo and threatens his friend. Well worth reading, even if it is just to capture another glimpse into the life of Odd Thomas.

Forver Odd doesn't move as well as the first one, Odd Thomas, but that is a personal opinion. I find to me that most "seconds" don't. It's still a great book to visit Odd. He's a sweetheart. This series makes you want to pack and go visit his little ole town.The twist in the end, which could only happen to someone like Odd, was heartbreaking. I was mad at Knootz for a day or two. Not that the ended wasn't well written, or fit the storyline, etc. It just affected me in that way, and it might you, too! It just didn't seem fair, but that's the way it turns out for Odd. Knootz claims he lets the book write themselves, he's just the vessel to tell what happened.Still, you may want to keep a tissue handy.***Fan's note: The next one in the series, title Brother Odd, is due out on Nov 28, 2006. Reading this one (Forever Odd) will make the title of number three clear.***

Still love Odd, Danny, Ozzie, Terri, Wyatt, and Elvis (yes, THAT Elvis) but the story felt more evil than the first. The ending sets up the 3rd book, Brother Odd, in which Odd retreats to a monastary as a lay brother. Have that one on my wish list.

Since I did not enjoy the first book in this series, until its very end, I surprised myself by picking up this one and realizing that I enjoyed it quite a bit more.

Odd really endeared himself to me in this one. From the beginning with his story about Elvis to the end where he will do what it takes, even if it is his own life, to help a friend. That is what Odd does, and with the help of his loved ones in the town of Pico Mundo, Odd will forever be treasured by his band of friends and the readers of this series.

Odd Thomas does not consider himself a hero, he just has the ability to communicate with the dead and has a built in magnet that draws people, whether alive or dead, to him. Odd's a good person so when his childhood friend disappears, Odd uses his ability to find him, not realizing that this journey will take him to an old abandoned casino and the evil Datura, who is determined to use Odd's gifts to further her own wicked goals.

The ending leads right into what appears to be the third installment of the Odd Thomas story. That in itself looks very interesting. Just imagine Odd as a Lay member of a religious order with Elvis along, since Elvis knows that this is his way home to his beloved mother.

I am glad that this series is starting to grow on me, I had been a fan of Dean Koontz with his original books, and I am glad that I can once again look forward to reading more.

Odd Thomas is one of my favorite fictional characters of all time. Odd is just as entertaining in this story as he was the first time around, although in my opinion the storyline in the first book was just little better. Odd's sense of humor, wit, and unbreakable spirit make all the books in this series (4 so far) worth reading.

Wow Dean Koontz's imagination is really out there. If you enjoyed [book:Odd Thomas|14995], you will definitely like this one. It's quite a bit more supernatural-ish than the first one but Koontz really pulls it together and makes it almost believable.

Odd Thomas's friend Danny is kidnapped and his father murdered. Of course, Odd feels obligated to search (using his psychic magnetism) for his friend since Danny has something called brittle bone syndrome (actually it has a huge medical name which I can't spell) and his person is extremely fragile. The person who kidnaps him believes Odd is capable of strange psychic phenomena (sp?) which they are desperate to experience first hand. The kidnapper flees in such a way as to prove Odd's abilities to herself before she unleashes further evil on both Odd and Danny.

I enjoyed the mystery and the chase but the wacky kidnapper was so far out there that some of it was beyond ridiculous but funny nonetheless.

This book is apart of the ODD THOMAS series. Odd can see spirits and is a fry cook. It's classic Dean Koontz that takes an ordinary day (person) and gives you a new view to the world. It's not about action and thrills (although the strangness can count as a thrill) but about making the ordinary extraordinary.

I listened to the unabridged audio CD version of this book ( 7 CDs, 8.5 hours).
Since it is the second in the series about the main character, Odd Thomas, it takes off where the first book, ODD THOMAS, left off. It had the same narrator, David Aaron Baker, as the first audiobook. To get full enjoyment from the series, I really think it is important to read (or listen) to each story in order - otherwise, you will know what is going to happen and it will take away some of the enjoyment. All in all, I really like the series and I will be starting the next book in the series this week.

Dean Koontz's unlikely hero Odd Thomas is back in his second adventure. Odd can see dead people, sometimes he helps them pass into the next world and sometimes they point him towards a wrong that needs righting. In this book, while still mourning his beloved Stormy, he needs to save his friend Danny from kidnappers. To complicate the situation, Danny has brittle bone syndrome and the slightest mistreatment could do serious damage. With little concern for himself, since dying might bring him to Stormy right?, Odd rushes to the rescue and faces down another psychopathic killer or two.

Odd Thomas sees dead people. He also helps them by bringing their killers to justice. The first person narration is nice, and there are good splashes of humor in the middle of the heavy tale. The story is predictable, with a nice twist at the end. It's the kind of book you can read quickly at the beach or on a plane. No deep thinking required.

Not long after Odd Thomas became a hero in the town of Pico Mundo by taking down a sniper at the local mall with plans of blowing it sky-high, Odd finds himself once again helping out both the living and dead.

His best friend, Danny, who suffers from brittle bone disease, is missing from his home where he lived with his adoptive father, Dr. Wilbur Jessup. Dr. Jessup had only minutes before arrived at Odd's apartment seeming to appeal for help--he was, like so many people who drift in and out of Odd's life--no longer alive in the real world. He had been murdered, and now Danny is missing.

Odd sets off to find his missing friend, using his "physic magnetism", as he calls it, and finds a woman who is so desperate to experience supernatural activities that she'll use Danny as a pawn to get what she wants.

With the same cast of characters from ODD THOMAS--Ollie, the overweight novelist; Terri, Odd's employer and friend; Chief Porter, the town's police head; Terrible Chester, Ollie's cat; and the ghost of Elvis--Odd is set upon another adventure that contains murder, mayhem, and one bad-a** evil woman.

This continuation of one of Koontz's best characters is a true winner. I read the book in one day, and I'm left with wanting to know where Odd will go from here. After the death of his beloved fiancee, Stormy, the previous August, Odd has been slightly adrift--and at the end of FOREVER ODD, we get some indication of where his life is leading, but not a clear-cut picture.

Definitely another winner by the incomparable Mr. Koontz, FOREVER ODD is not a story to be missed.

Dean Koontz is not on my list of favorite authors but someone had given me this book and eventually I read it. It kept my interest and I have ordered the sequel to see what happens to the main character, so that says something good about the author. What I'm not too into is the genre. I'd say the writing is good, if not inspired and not excellent. I know he is popular and I wish him good will but I still won't be paying good money to actually buy these books.

An excellent sequel to Odd Thomas, which I read back at the end of 2004. Unfortunately, it took me a few minutes to remember what had happened to Stormy and the exact details of August that Odd kept referring to so I wish I’d have read Odd Thomas more recently, or else had it on hand to briefly glimpse through to refresh my memory on key points and characters. As it stands now, I’m still not sure I recall how Stormy died, but I don’t think the exact details were all that important to the current story or else I’m sure the details would’ve been specifically mentioned. (For some reason, while trying to recall details from Odd Thomas, portions of Life Expectancy kept intruding on my memory and getting mixed up in there too.)

Once I started reading this, I couldn't put it down. Odd Thomas is such a beautiful soul, and following him in his pursuits feels like you're right there with him. If you're going to read this seriesc AND don't like spoilers, read Book 1 ("Odd Thomas") first. The ending of that book carries through the rest of the series and could be "spoiled" if you read the stories that come after it.
