Read in August, 2009

Dean Koontz is excellent in capturing the essence of his characters in three-sentence paragraphs. Picking up a few months from the end of book one in this series ("Odd Thomas"), the plot begins at the first sentence and pulls you along with a ferocity that I appreciate in books (I just don't have the time to "warm up" to a book...I'm in or out within the first few pages). Although I don't like that Odd is a collection of philosophies and beliefs, none of which are represented in a pure fashion within this text (Zen, Hindu, and deist components abound), perhaps that is what makes him more real--in spite of possessing an ability that many of us might long, or loathe, to possess. He isn't quite sure of the Truth, but he doesn't get hung up in the searching for it. Just like the description on the cover reads: "I see people. But then, by God, I do something about it." Looking forward to book three. :)
