To Say a Little Word…

Here’s Odd Thomas:

“Things had happened this night that I had never experienced previously, moments of a supernatural nature that mystified me. They required a quality of reflection that I could not achieve while sprinting from mortal threat or verbally fencing with a sadistic police chief in a windowless room that resembled an abattoir.”

Odd Thomas, Odd Hours, Dean Koontz

 

-Can I just say that Dean Koontz writes in such a beautifully haunting way that sometimes (in this case) I don’t have a clue where the story is going or really what it’s about, but I like it anyway. I’ve read 235 pages of this book and I have no idea what Odd Thomas has to prevent from happening, but I know it’s major. And I’m just enjoying the writing so much that even if it has a horrible ending I’d still be like ‘Well, at least it was a beautiful journey.’

Constant vigilance!

  1. Have I thanked you for turning me on to these books?? The Odd Thomas series is incredible! I am in love with the way that Odd Thomas thinks and I love how I am never quite sure what twist or turn the story is going to take. I just finished reading Odd Interlude and I started into Deeply Odd today!

    1. I believe you have haha, I had no idea there were so many! I just bought Odd Hours on a fluke and then looked up to see what was next, I have four or five more to go! Whoohoo!!!
      Odd is so sassy in the sweetest way, I just want to hug him all the time. This book at the end I was like Wait…what?! Aaaah!!! He’s so good at the cliffhanger ending that I didn’t realize it was happening until I hit the back cover. I need more!!!
