A very fun and yet creepy read. I would like Odd for my friend. I had a hard time putting it aside to sleep.

I was pleasantly surprised with this story. I very much liked the characters and the whole plot. Surprise ending. I'm reading Forever Odd now with equal enthusiasm.

The Odd Thomas series is a must have. Thoughtful and well written. It has to be Koontz's best book ever.

This is, without a doubt, one of the best books that Dean Koontz has ever written. I was moved to tears reading it. I have been reading Koontz on and off since the early 90's, and haven't been impressed with much that he's done in the last decade. This books reveals a new, improved Koontz. I couldn't put it down, and for the first time in a long time, I felt like the relationship between the main characters worked. It still has that trademark Koontz humor and quirkiness, but it's the intensity is more subtle and heartfelt. This is not one to miss.

I read Brother Odd first not know that it was the 3rd book in the Odd Thomas collection. That kind of ruined part of the ending of this book for me. I felt like it took a long time to get to the excitement, but it is a well written book overall.

Great book! I have read all of the Oddie books except the last one and am re- collecting them since the April 2011 tornado. These are books I can read over and over...
