message 1: by Joy (new)

Joy I really enjoyed the Odd books, this first one getting us started kept the chills going.


message 2: by TeraD (new)

TeraD Yep, Odd Thomas is a great character. I still need to pick up In Odd We Trust. I collect Koontz's books.


message 3: by Minoan (new)

Minoan For all-time fast-paced, page turning, creepy/uneasiness try The Wolfen by Whitley Streiber, and his Billy will keep you reading while whishing you hadn't. And Preston and Child's Relic is a great don't-go-in-that-room read.
