Odd doesn't have to bear the burden of his ability alone. It's not a completely secret power; it's just a power.
The people who know not only accept that he has it, they trust him with it, and his friends are all so eclectic: Viola and her daughters Nicolina and Levanna, Terry his boss with her Elvis obsession, his landlady Rosalia Sanchez, who asks him every day if she is visible, the fore mentioned Chief Porter and his wife Karla, Little Ozzie who is probably the largest man in the town, and of course, the love of his life Stormy Llewellyn.
While all of them do not know what he's capable of, they all accept that he is Odd. He is an example of the "hiding power in simple places" trope where we often see the orphan or the foundling who was left or hidden to conceal and protect who they are and what they have.
Odd is also extremely polite, another thing I enjoyed especially coming from one so young where they're often and tritely portrayed as rude.
He calls everyone either "sir" or "ma'am" and there's no one he treats with disrespect. Koontz pulls you in right away with Odd's powers manifesting themselves in a little girl named Penny Kalisto. The dead never talk to him, but they have a way of making themselves heard. The ones that still linger do so for a reason, and Odd feels it is his duty to divine.
Seeing the dead is not his only power, but I won't spoil the surprise. Even though I figured out the major twist long before the final chapter, I still give this tale high marks and have added the second novel, Forever Odd, to my reading list.
There's also apparently a movie that I'll need to check out. Odd Thomas wears its sadness like a pall. It lurks between each word and is the foundation of every sentence. First published back in , Volume One of the Odd Thomas series has deservedly earned the title of Supernatural Classic. And it is, sort of.
But not really. It all boils down to the fact that Odd Thomas can see dead people. But as Mr Koontz says in his own words, " It is a good thing, therefore, as an incredibly bold or is that naive? And that in the context of this story, his girlfriend - Stormy Lleweyn - is the niece of the village Catholic Priest.
As i approach the halfway mark, I am yet to meet the entire cast of characters, but those that have been introduced to the reader are full of depth, humour, intelligence and to summarise, are all beautifully and immaculately presented. But what an amazingly intellectual mind he has!
And with such friendship and plutonic love he holds for Odd, he is almost like the Father Odd never knew. But brace yourself. For readers who are interested, there are a couple of phrases inserted into the body of the book that could almost be described as Mr Koontz being autobiographical.
For example, taken from location of the kindle version: He likes people and he listens to them, and that love of humanity shines out of his pages. I think so. So what is the book really about? Is it a standalone novel? Or merely the prologue to arguably the first and greatest supernatural fantasy series of all time? Well in my opinion, it is both. Clearly the Fungus Man must be stopped. He is bad.
Odd Thomas and his small army of friends represent the forces of good in the tiny town of Pico Mundo and they will of course do their darnedest to protect its integrity. So our role as readers, of course, is to sit on the sidelines, cheer on the good guys, and hope for the outcome we all want.
Because if Mr Odd fails to overcome the invading evil and achieve his destiny, how on earth is Mr Koontz going to write eight more fantastic books to read? I hereby award this book a very solid four stars, despite its status as the opening stanza to a legendary series. BFN Greggorio! See all 1, reviews.
