A very engaging and compelling novel. Odd Thomas is such an unusually earnest character and this book has almost a 1950's very wholesome atmosphere. I dig it and I'm looking forward to reading the rest in the series.

Another new character for me, and I love him. Can't wait to read the rest.

Dean Koontz really is my favorite author of all time, and he outdid himself with this series. There's something for everyone in every book, his writing style is dark and still very witty (at at times, cute), and he makes it feel as if the characters actually exist. Whenever I read this book, I get sad because there's no way I can meet them in person. (Haha). The action starts right at the beginning and it just keeps going. I would recommend this book to anyone, anytime.

This is the first book in the series and is the best, without a doubt. The characters, limited in number as they are, interweave to make an amazingly complex story that keeps you riveted until the end.

It felt really slow-paced for the first half, but overall, it was very good.

It was okay. A little too much like the sixth sense, but not a bad read. I doubt I'll read the rest of the series. The novelty of a guy who sees dead people and helps them "move on" while preventing evil doings just seems cheesy to me. Oh well.

The film adaptation of Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas has begun casting, with producer Stephen Sommers naming Anton Yelchin to play the title role. Word & Film observed: "Of the various Dean Koontz adaptations that have been made, none have particularly held our attention. But now, with Yelchin attached to star and Sommers slated to produce (and direct, we hope), this is one we'll follow through to the finish. The film's release is set for far-off 2012."
