At first ODD THOMAS seems like a charcter that has been done before...he can see ghosts, whoopie doo, right? HOWEVER, it is written in my favorite type of Koontz narrative with that sense of humor twisted in that just keeps ones attention and makes you laugh with puts down the guard of your other emotions as well..because you care about the guy and the characters. The ending should also have been predictable, and yet when it happened it took me off guard and was rather emotionally stunning... Odd Thomas was given to me in hardback as a gift from a girl who broke my heart and the story and book will always remain vivid in my mind for some sentimental reason or another. The sequel, FOREVER ODD was decent enough too.

I fell In love with Odd, the very first time I came across his character. He seems to have sucha genuinely pure soul, his self deprecating monologue is very funny. You start to really care what happens to him and the other characters you meet. And the ever-so-often appearances by Elvis keeps it interesting.

You should read 'Odd Thomas' by Dean Koontz

I think Odd Thomas is a lovable character. You just kind of want the best for him as you read. He's so laid back even though he has a 'gift'. So far I've only read the first book, but I'm looking forward to getting to read the rest.

The Odd Thomas series is the only Koontz books I've been interested in, and I love them. I am currently reading the third one now. Koontz drags out descriptions kinda bit, but it's usually humorous to hear Odd go on and on about something. LOL. Sometimes I kinda lose track because of this!

I am currently reading Brother Odd. I was surprised at how much this character grows on you. I get so caught up in the stories that I don't want to put the book down. I read Forever Odd in one day. And without poor Elvis, of course, there be no story...lol.

I am reading this book right now so for it is a great book. I am enjoying the way Koontz makes it like Odd Thomas is telling the story.

I just finished reading Brother Odd. I thought the end was rather cheesy. I really liked the first two books, but I didn't like the storyline of this one so much. Hopefully when the next one comes out it will be better.

I have read all three books in the Odd Thomas series and I have cried with each one. I absolutely love Oddie. His heart is so pure. He is loyal to a fault to those he loves and his love is everlasting. I cried for hours at the end of Odd Thomas. In Forever Odd, my heart ached that Odd was still suffering and hurting. And in Brother Odd, well....I cried, I cheered, I cried some more. I recommend these books to everyone. My mother doesn't like Koontz at all, but I convinced her to read these books and she LOVED them.

I love this character. I could not put the book down! For Christmas my mother got Brother Odd, but I heard there was one in between, Forever Odd. I want to read it SO bad! I bawled at the end of Odd Thomas.
