    With the same incomparable style and warm, inviting voice that have made her beloved by millions of readers far and wide, New York Times best-selling author Fannie Flagg has written an enchanting Christmas story of faith and hope for all ages that is sure to become a classic.

    "Has become a Tradition"
    Overall

    This book has already become a Tradition for my family. My wife and I love all of Fannie Flagg's books and this is our favorite. While on a long trip to a dreaded encounter, this book removed us from unpleasant thoughts and put us in a very sentimental and giving state of mind. The story draws you in with suspense then leads you to hope. By the end, you feel like your heart has swollen three sizes larger (a la Grinch), while you realize that your worries are so minor compared to the plight of others. Fannie Flagg has hit a home run with this Christmas story, and even the toughest of us have to feel a heart tug at one point or another during this tale. If you have any compassion in you at all, you'll find yourself silently praying for a miracle and hope by the mid-point of the book. I recommend it to all during the Holiday Season. It is due to become a tradition to all that love a good story, Holiday or not.

  • Odd Thomas

    Story
    (2034)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    "One of his best if not - his 'Best'!"
    Overall

    I bought 'Odd Thomas' on tape before a long 8 hour drive to a destination that neither my wife nor I were looking forward too. It was to be an unpleasant trip at best and I thought if I could get her hooked on a book-on-tape, I could get her mind off of dreadful things. I have been a Koontz fan for years and thought if 'Koontz' can't hook her, no one can. After the first 30 minutes, she put down her puzzle book and was listening with the enthusiasm of a young girl during story time at school. She was so captured ... I had to buy a tape player as soon as we arrived, so she could listen in our motel room.
    Koontz has blended his skills into humor, horror and drama, like never before. He changes pace within the book, at just the right time. He brings the characters to life, right before your ears (eyes). 'Odd Thomas' is a joy to listen too and worth the time and money to invest in the audio or book. This puts Koontz in the arena of character development with Stephen King and the story-telling skills of such greats as James Patterson. It's the best of all worlds and I really think that anyone that gives it a read, won't be disappointed.
    PS My 17 year old, 'never pick-up a book', son listened to it in just one day. He loved it too!
