I am an avid Dean Koontz reader & fan. So of course I have already read the first & second “Odd” books. I liked them & considered them to be entertaining though I was not necessarily a big “Odd” fan.
BUT!...This 3rd book in the series was absolutely wonderful. There are several passages that are nothing less than poetic prose; not sappy or gratuitous but enchanting. Odd was much more genuine & witty in his humor & in his observations. Though very good at figuring out where things are going, the last few chapters strayed from the assumed path & captured my complete attention to the immediate written word. During this time I was not thinking ahead to what, more than likely, was going to happen.
This book is more about the humanity of people than the inhumanity of Dean Koontz’s monsters. He has transcended his “formula” & expanded his range. For this I am very grateful. I can not wait to see more of this from him.
To put it simply....Brother Odd Thomas & Dean Koontz’s writing made me feel really, really good! Lighter in heart & spirit as well.
