Saint Odd is the final book in Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas series, and I can’t imagine a more satisfying ending. This is definitely a series to read in order, and each book is well worth it.
Odd is back where it all started, in Pico Mundo, California. His psychic senses tell him something bad is coming, and tens of thousands, if not more, will die if he can’t stop it. But he doesn’t know the what or the who.
As usual, this journey into the nature of reality, good, and evil is a non-stop thrill ride. The usual cliches apply: page-turner, couldn’t put it down, up reading late into the night. But nothing in this book is a cliche. Dean Koontz can write. I marvel at his prose, but it’s not so weighty as to get in the way of the narrative. (If you want to improve your writing – reading Dean Koontz isn’t a bad way to start).
Buy it, read it, savor it. But start from the beginning of the series.
Can I give it more than 5 stars?
