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.

Interesting story line, but I like better character development. I will be reading others to see where it goes.

I enjoyed this book with the twist at the end it was a good read after getting tired of reading so many Koontz books. I would suggest it for any Dean Koontz fan.
