Mary Todd (marytodd) | 924 comments what do you think of Odd Thomas...isn't he a fun character? We were talking about the ending of Odd Hours and wondering about the woman and who she might or might not be.

Wendy | 91 comments I absolutely love the Odd Thomas character. I love how the kid has such an easy going nature, with a sense of humor. It makes for a fun read.
The woman HAS to be Stormy!! Maybe it's the only way she can come back to earth and interact with him? She may not have the ability to hang around like Elvis and Sinatra.
