i read this book for a junior english class and found that Koontz followed his regular pattern of twists and turns that keep me reading. His books always have such an interesting tone and all the action and description really ties youy in and makes it hard to stop. i have read many other Koontz books, such as:The Mask, Intensity, and Fear Nothing. Of all that i have read i believe that Fear Nothing was the best, although Forever Odd had a different and appealing nature to it, i still think that i more enjoyed Fear Nothing. In conclusion, Forever ODd is a great book and one that can be read over and over again. BUY IT!

The first book to this series "Odd Thomas" was exciting, upbeat and thrilling. I was so happy to hear that there are now two more in this series. Forever Odd is even better, the plot is intriguing and he really captures the audience i couldn't put it down!

Product details 400 pages Bantam Books - English 9780553588262 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Besides having an unusual moniker, 21-year-old Odd Thomas (whom readers first met in Koontz's 2003 novel of the same name) has some very unusual powers, chief among them his ability to see the dead. He can see, feel and talk to them, too (though they don't talk back: 'Perhaps they know things about death that the living are not permitted to learn from them'). These days Odd is still hosting the ghost of a morose Elvis Presley, still grieving for his dead girlfriend, Stormy, and still worrying about his very fat friend P. Oswald Boone, whose cat, Terrible Chester, likes to pee on his shoes. Late one night, Odd is summoned by the ghost of Dr. Wilbur Jessup to the Jessup home, the site of a gruesome murder. Dr. Jessup is the father of Odd's best friend, Danny, who is afflicted with osteogenesis imperfecta, also known as brittle bones. Odd finds Dr. Jessup's body, but Danny is missing. Since Odd has what he describes as 'psychic magnetism,' he can follow an invisible mental trail, which in this case leads him to his endangered friend. After he finds Danny in a spooky, burned-out Indian casino, it is Odd who becomes the quarry. The beautiful and stunningly evil Datura, aided by two frightening minions, wants to use Odd for his supernatural abilities — and then kill him. Odd's strange gifts, coupled with his intelligence and self-effacing humor, make him one of the most quietly authoritative characters in recent popular fiction." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "Forever Odd is a fast and exciting read....[The climactic scenes are] fraught with tension."
"Review" by , "The nice young fry cook with the occult powers is [Koontz's] most likable creation....[C]andid, upright, amusing and sometimes withering, especially when thinking about the state of contemporary popular culture."
"Review" by , "[T]he tale's stranglehold suspense allows for less of the offbeat humor that lightened Odd Thomas....Not to complain, though. This is only slightly less than top-drawer Koontz."
"Review" by , "Forever Odd is the crème de le crème of Koontz's offerings. It has unusual characters, auctorial rants...lots of dead folks and a suspense factor that will leave even the most steely-eyed armchair detective sweating bullets during the last 100 pages."
"Review" by , "The problem with Forever Odd isn't its philosophy but its execution. The writing is crisp, and Odd has his charms, but his first-person narrative is a mess."
"Review" by , "[A] quick and enjoyable read — just scary enough for winter fireside reading but not scary enough to keep you awake at night. More character-driven than many horror novels, it is a fun and unique approach to ghost stories and creepy tales."
"Synopsis" by , Koontz returns to the unique world of Pico Mundo, and to his unforgettable hero who lives "always between two doors, between a life with the living and a life with the dead, between transcendence and terror." Evil is coming to Pico Mundo, and there can be no innocent bystanders.
