Only a handful of fictional characters are recognized by first name alone. Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas is one such literary hero who has come alive in listeners’ imaginations as he explores the greatest mysteries of this world and the next with his inimitable wit, heart, and quiet gallantry. Now Koontz follows Odd as he is irresistibly drawn onward, to a destiny he cannot imagine.... The legend began in the obscure little town of Pico Mundo. A fry cook named Odd was rumored to have the extraordinary ability to communicate with the dead. Through tragedy and triumph, exhilaration and heartbreak, word of Odd Thomas’s gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends - and enemies of implacable evil. With great gifts comes the responsibility to meet great challenges. But no mere human being was ever meant to face the darkness that now stalks the world - not even one as oddly special as Odd Thomas. After grappling with the very essence of reality itself, after finding the veil separating him from his soul mate, Stormy Llewellyn, tantalizingly thin yet impenetrable, Odd longed only to return to a life of quiet anonymity with his two otherworldly sidekicks - his dog Boo and a new companion, one of the few who might rival his old pal Elvis. But a true hero, however humble, must persevere. Haunted by dreams of an all-encompassing red tide, Odd is pulled inexorably to the sea, to a small California coastal town where nothing is as it seems. Now the forces arrayed against him have both official sanction and an infinitely more sinister authority…and in this dark night of the soul, dawn will come only after the most shattering revelations of all.

    " On travel I have been trying to get into some of the big sellers in the US. I found this an odd story, well written but not that engaging, and in the end turned it back in even though I was 80% finished. "

    " Listened to unabridged CD version while motoring -- not too distracting, maybe because Odd Thomas #4 isn't quite up to Koontz' previous efforts and that allowed me to focus my attention on traffic conditions. The story was listenable but a bit hard to believe, even with Odd's unusual powers. I did, however, feel there is much to much moralizing and philosophical blather that really tuned me out. All-in-all, a basically good story that could have been a lot better if not for all the excess verbosity. "

    " 4th odd thomas bk, mostly action, but great quote p219: "so you just loved, just took for granted the love & laughter each day and didn't allow yourself to consider the sacredness of it...it was the why of life, every event and precious moment of it. The answer to the mystery of existence is the love you shared so imperfectly and when the loss wakes you to the deeper beauty of it , the sanctity of it, you can't get off your knees the whole time, you're driven to your knees not by the weight of loss, but by gratitude for what preceded the loss. And the ache is always there, but one day not the emptiness because to nurture the emptiness, to take solace in it, is to disrespect the gift of life." "
