I have tried many Dean Koontz books but had yet to find one that I liked until Odd Thomas. I saw the movie on Netflix and loved it so I decided to give the book a chance. I'm glad I did. The writing is done really well. The characters are incredible. I love the voice of the main character. I love the idea behind these books. It's all brilliant. You will not regret reading these books. Except maybe for the bummer ending. I plan to read the next books in the series as well.
