I may be a bit more harsh than usual, but I just read 2 of these back to back, and am not going to follow Odd to go live in a monastery for the 3rd book, or wherever else he goes in the 4th that's out now. I'm a firm believer in the idea that you have to read the bad with the good in order to appreciate the talent of the writers you love.

Koontz isn't a horrible writer, it's just not odd thomas by dean koontz, and it's really just not for me.

Clearly odd thomas by dean koontz doing ok, and sells books like crazy, so I don't think he'll be worried that I'm not riding in his bandwagon. And honestly, more power to him. This may be somebody's favorite book, and that's great, that's the beauty of bookswe don't all have to like the same thing.

But the supernatural elements mean that Koontz needn't worry about the logical deductions that straight crime novels require: Thomas just follows his instincts to find things out.

Odd Thomas is certainly a page-turner, with many a twist and turn, but there is something coy and cute about the character of the eponymous hero and his relationship with Stormy Llewellyn that could irritate you.
