I couldn't finish it. It rambled so badly it gave me a migraine. Example -
The sentences in the book...books remind me of childhood and eating candy i like candy but especially peppermint my mom had a dog named pepper it died i don't like peppers neither the dog nor peppers on my pizza mmmm pizza i think i will order pizza but not with peppers or pepperoni like my moms dog it was a weiner dog don't want that on my pizza ... never get finished without losing the point. He rambles on so much i forget what he's talking about. Total ADHD, beyond "cute quirkiness". I despise talking to people with ADHD. If you have an abundance of patience, get the book.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good addition to the Odd Thomas series. This story takes place a little while after the last book. Odd, Annamarie and Tim (a boy they rescued from Roseland in Odd Apocalypse) are renting a place. Odd wasn't expecting it but ends up having another eventful day. He starts out planning to go run some errands and ends up meeting an evil trucker. Odd quickly realizes that the bad guy is going to perpetrate some really bad actions against innocents. Odd has to track him and stop him and while doing this, Odd makes another friend (who ends up being a lot of help to him). Odd does his thing and finds out what's going on, what has to be done to stop the badness and he does what needs to be done (even if he feels badly about the actions he must take to stop the bad guys).
There are indications that something bad is headed for Odd's home town and so it looks like the final book with take place there. Annamarie still hasn't had much to do with the stories (being absent for about 95% of the story) so I guess we'll see what she's there for in the next book. I still love Odd's character and was very pleased with this book. I'd recommend this series. :D
Dean Koontz has done it again! I love the Odd Thomas series and Deeply. Odd was exceptionally good. I love the new characters and see the deepening of Odd's understanding of his gifts. I don't want to say more and give away anything about the story itself. This is a must read for Odd Thomas fans!
