Review: Odd Thomas

Odd Thomas (Odd Thomas, #1)Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

No pretensions of being great literature, just a supernatural mystery thriller popular enough to deserve a hardcover release. Can’t quite decide if the ending is a clever twist or a cheap trick. Leaning towards cheap trick, having been slapped in the face with a cold, damp red herring. The conceit is interesting, but not new, the lead female’s name screams grocery store dime novel, but the main character is enjoyable, as is his fat six-fingered friend. I’ll look into the next one. Supposedly, Koontz’s (if not Odd’s) Christianity is present and active; maybe it comes out a little more in his further adventures.
