Odd Thomas

Last year, I was privileged with the opportunity to make the acquaintance of Odd Thomas. Yes, Odd is his proper name... he had some very messed up folks. A very interesting guy, is he... he sees the dead, and they seek him out. Now, I only got to spend a couple of days hanging out with him, but I thought the guy was very cool.

This year, thanks to my mother, I was able to hang out with him again... get to know him even better. You can't help but like him. Talking about dreams, he said, "My dreams aren't reliably prophetic. I have never, for instance, ridden bareback on an elephant, naked, while having sexual relations with Jennifer Aniston." When I asked if he knew my dreams, he assured me that it was one of his own. And I thought I was the only one that had that dream...

In case you haven't clicked on any of the links that I so kindly provided, Odd is a character brought to us by Dean Koontz. Some very good books. The new one, Forever Odd, was gifted me by my ma. I read it in one morning.

If you need some good reading, check them out.

I read Odd Thomas last year about this time and gifted myself "Forever Odd" for Christmas this year.

I sooo agree with you. Both books make for such a great read! I look forward to catching up with Oddie again.........

I LOVE Dean Koontz - Have not read that one yet, but looking forward to it. Just got Life Expectancy in paperback the other day.
