    Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester. One crisp October night, as they watch, a star falls from the sky, and Victoria promises to marry Tristran if he'll retrieve the star and bring it back for her. It is this promise that sends Tristran on the most unforgettable adventure of his life.

    As soon as I finished I started over and listened to the whole story again! I've never done that before. Mr. Gaiman's writing style is beautifully descriptive and poetic, and his narration is a treat as well. I was truly delighted!

    The legend began in the obscure little town of Pico Mundo. A fry cook named Odd was rumored to have the extraordinary ability to communicate with the dead. Through tragedy and triumph, exhilaration and heartbreak, word of Odd Thomas' gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends - and enemies of implacable evil.

    Overall

    I had to write in praise of the narrator. His voice characterization of the protagonist, Odd Thomas, is always spot-on, but his other characters really shone in this recording, particularly the quirky Birdie and Blossom, and especially the elderly retired actor Hutch, who was just delightful. The voice of the menacing small-town sheriff was perfect as well. It was hard to believe all those voices came out of the same narrator! It made me feel sorry for those who read this book in print and missed out on the fun. The only sour note was the voice of Reverend Moran, who seemed to be channeling Father Mulcahy from MASH at the end. Otherwise, a marvelous performance. The book is a roller-coaster ride that leaves the story unfinished--I can't wait to find out what comes next.
