About a month ago I finished the 2nd book in the “Odd” series by Dean Koontz. I had read the first one (Odd Thomas) years ago and I really loved it. I was so excited to finally getting around to reading the sequel, Forever Odd.
This series revolves around a young guy named Odd who has never ventured out of a small town in California. Oh and one thing you should know about Odd, he can see dead people. In Forever Odd, one of his best friends has been kidnapped and Odd is on the hunt for him. The trail leads to some pretty interesting and dark situations for Odd.
The majority of this book takes place at an old deserted casino that experienced a huge fire years and years ago. A deserted casino due to a fire? You can only image what that might mean to a guy who sees dead people.
This 2nd book was much darker than the first. If you can’t handle any kind of thriller or paranormal reads, I would skip this one. There was one pretty intense poltergeist scene, so this is definitely for mature readers. Over all the book was good, not great. The first one, in my opinion, BLEW this one out of the water. I would definitely recommend reading the first one, not so much the 2nd.
The Odd series continues in the next book with Odd becoming a monk. Who knows, maybe in another year or two I’ll read it. What about you? Have you read this book? If not, what are you reading currently? I’d love to hear your opinions and recommendations.
