First Line: My name is Odd Thomas, though in this age when fame is the altar at which most people worship, I am not sure why you should care who I am or that I exist.

Odd Thomas is a young man with a gift. He uses this gift in order to get justice for those who cannot help themselves. But when a strange man comes into the diner where Odd works as a short order cook, he’s never encountered anyone as evil before. With the help of his soul mate, Stormy Llewellyn, they must stop this strange man before he can wreak havoc on their little community.
I’m going to be honest … this book was weird. And usually I like weird books, but this one was not really wonderful. It definitely had it’s great parts, but overall I was a little bored throughout the book. I found myself struggling to pay attention to it. I am not sure I will continue this series, although I have the next one. It will be a while before I will want to pick up the second one.

  1. I for one do not agree with your review of odd thomas as odd thomas is a very likable chrachter. While the use of psychic powers maybe a little different. Ultimately this is simply the copilot to a book that has a panoply of other traits that as a whole sum up to a wonderful book with a very good chrachter. The weirdness is also a wonderful facet to this novels greatness
