    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Bill says: "Great narration, disappointing story"
    "Skillfully written"
    Overall

    Another great book by Koontz! He gives his character a good sense of humor and sarcasm to boot. Loved it!
