Odd Hours a interesting and creative book to read.. The “Odd” series is written by Dean Koontz who has a style of writing thrillers and tales of terror with a heart and soul is evident in so many of his book This novel takes place in Magic Beach California. The main Character is Odd Thomas, a twenty three year old fry cook who has psychic abilities. One day, his powers draw him to the pier in which he meets a girl named Annamaria. As the get up to leave, three men approach them and start to follow them. He pushes her forward and distracts the men, but when one of them touches him, he is sent into a recurring dream he has been having that he believes is a premonition of the end of the world. He knows he is in danger so he gets away and prepares for the day to come, and what he believes to be the coming of the apocalypse. One of the main themes of the book is good conquering evil. Unfortunately, all i can say about the relation of the book to the world today without revealing any major plot elements is that it has a lot to do with what’s going on in the Middle East. This book in particularly is a page turner, it’s very hard to put down once you start. It isn’t very hard to follow either, he gives very good explanations of anything that might be confusing. Overall, Koontz is a very good author, and this book is a very good read. I highly recommend this book to any fiction lover.
