I finished the first book in the Odd Thomas series, Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. Overall, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
It was good. I enjoyed it. The plot moved along and I stayed engaged throughout. BUT I think I let other people’s reviews guide my expectations. I wanted it to be more than it was, somehow. Or maybe I just didn’t mesh with Odd’s way of thinking and internal monologue.
My favorite series of Koontz’s is still his Frankenstein series (which, um, I haven’t finished. Oops). And my favorite book of his is still The Taking, which gave me legit nightmares for days.
I might jump into the second book soon, but I’ve got some other reading to do first.
