So far an addictive read. I have to read it during the day on days when I have nothing to do because I find myself sitting for hours just immersed in this Odd story.
I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

I love Dean Koontz's books and have just reread Odd Thomas in anticipation of getting the movie from the library. The main characters are wonderful and the surprise ending is worth the wait!

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.
