I've always loved Dean Koontz's writing style - a little loopy, a little humor and a lot horror. I enjoy the "Odd" series and really like Odd Thomas's character. He's a morally upstanding guy who from time to time has to do repugnant things for the good of humanity. Interspersed with the horrific details of various nasty things and creatures, Odd's quirky personality peeps out, bringing some much needed comic relief to the mounting tension. Odd seems to have picked up a few travelers whom he takes on his next adventure. Enigmatic Annamarie from [b:Odd Hours|2029927|Odd Hours (Odd Thomas, #4)|Dean Koontz|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320422720s/2029927.jpg|2313023] is by his side in this screwy adventure and he brings Timothy away from this one. What a bizarre family Odd is accumulating. It will be interesting to see how these people fit into future books. Oh an lets not forget Alfred Hitchcock. I wonder what his role is going to be in [b:Deeply Odd|15722281|Deeply Odd (Odd Thomas, #6)|Dean Koontz|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1346698402s/15722281.jpg|21396251].
