Odd Thomas
by Dean Koontz

A horror novel told by 20-year-old Odd Thomas about his attempt to prevent mass slaughter by Satanists. He sees ghosts, including Elvis Presley, but they donít speak. More useful are his ability to see bodachs who appear near mayhem and his ability to locate people of interest by focusing on them and moving toward were he senses will get him closer to them. The story takes place over a two-day period. It is told with humor and affection. It includes the love story of Odd and his girlfriend. It is very well done and enjoyable.

My only criticism is that the boy writes too well for such a young man. I suspect that Dean Koontz actually wrote the book.

Year Read: 2005
