Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
Odd Thomas

C Richard Monson, January 1, 2010

"Odd Thomas" is a very quirky, unique and endearing story of a young man who wants nothing more out of life than to be the best fry cook at the Pico Mundo Grill and to spend many happy moments with his exceptional girlfriend, Stormy. But a higher power has chosen him to be a great deal more. He has been given an extraordinary ability to see some of those who have exited this life - to even communicate with them after a fashion, since they never actually speak.

However, with this ability comes a dark side. He can see shadowy forms which converge where violence is about to occur. He feels very inadequate to try to put a stop to the event, once he has managed to decipher what it will be; nonetheless, he feels it is his duty, as any decent, upstanding fry cook ought to feel.

"Odd Thomas" is a story that will amuse, terrify and touch your heart. The characters are wonderful and real. But be forewarned, a supply of tissue nearby is mandatory!
