Ok, this might just be me. In a horror/suspense novel, the villain is key. The villain has to scare the crap out of you or it just doesn't work. This villain just didn't do it for me. I hate spoilers so I will just leave it at that. Reasonable minds differ and all that. And the ending was too abrupt for my taste. Oh, so there is more, is there? Ok, that being said, I would read a book about Odd Thomas going grocery shopping. Although I read the first book only a few months ago, he is one of my all time favorite characters, alternating between making me think and laughing out loud. One reviewer complained that he feels that Dean Koontz is injecting his personal opinions and world view into the novels but that really doesn't bother me at all. I like thinking that there is a lot of Dean Koontz in Odd. What this book was for me was entertaining. It was also very atmospheric. I loved the monastery setting and there is nothing like a good snowstorm that isolates the characters to get the tension building. Can't wait for #4 and #5 to see what Odd is up to. ( )

Old reviews went missing. How does save not working?

Not my favorite Odd. ( )

I have been thinking for a long time about reading a book about Odd Thomas. Although I thought I would rather start with the first book in this series, but it so happened that I started with this one. And that wasn't a big deal.

What surprised me the most in this book is its poetic angle. There are many sophisticated comparisons and poetic descriptions here. I didn't expect it at all. This is not something you usually see in thrillers. I don't think I have read any other book by this author, so I don't know if it's just a matter of this series or of Koontz's writing style in general, but it's undoubtedly interesting and different.

Another thing that surprised me is that this book is on the border between thriller and horror. At moments with the strong presence of the latter. I don't know why I didn't expect it, since the main genre of this book on Goodreads is horror. I don't think I checked it out. In general, I rather avoid horror books and movies, I don't like to be afraid. Elements of horror in this book were not the most terrifying I have encountered but it was not always an easy read for me.

After all, I definitely like Odd. He is such an interesting character that I was even not disturbed by the first-person narration, which I usually don’t like very much. This is only the third book in this series, so I do not rule out that I will also read the previous two books to get to know Odd better. And although this book referred to the events of the previous one (the second one?), there are no details and I doubt that I would remember it for some time.

As for the story, some ideas reminded me of some other book I read a few years ago. I'm not sure, but I think it was either Dan Brown or Douglas Preston / Lincoln Child duo. Of course, I mean this God plus science thing. But of course it's hard to get a completely new concept because everything has already been written before. And here it doesn't bother me either.

All in all, this book is rather on the edge of my typical comfort zone but it is fine. One day I will probably read other books from this series, the first one is already on my TBR pile I think. ( )

The dialog alone is worth reading. Smart, sassy, vibrant. Koontz has created a character with infinite possibilities and then takes him to the far reaches of faith and science taking the reader along for the thrill ride. ( )

I love Odd's odd point of view. His relationship with Elvis is great. He goes to a monastery to relax and help a poltergeist move on. And of course odd things begin to happen. ( )

To some folks I've known a long time and admire because they do good work and are good people: Peter Styles, Richard Boukes, Bill Anderson (Hello, Danielle), Dave Gaulke, and Tom Fenner (Hello, Gabriella, Katia, and Troy). We'll have a fine party on the Other Side, but let's not be in a hurry.
