I adored Odd Thomas the first time I met him in the original novel. He was quirky, fun, earnest, and kind. In this latest novel, he's become self-righteous and rather rigid. I was surprised at how Koontz seemed to insert diatribes against everything from the ACLU to unions to euthanasia every chance he got. Oh, and don't forget about science. I respect Mr. Koontz's right to his political beliefs (come to that, I respect Odd's rights too) but it's hard to like a character who has gone from complex to monologic. After this latest installment, I don't think I have the fortitude to meet an even older and more rigid Odd in the future. I liked the younger, more open Odd too much.
