Only a handful of fictional characters are recognized by first name alone. Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas is one such literary hero, who has come alive in readers’ imaginations as he explores the greatest mysteries of this world and the next with his inimitable wit, heart, and quiet gallantry. Now Koontz follows Odd as he is drawn onward, to a destiny he cannot imagine. Haunted by dreams of an all-encompassing red tide, Odd is pulled inexorably to the sea, to a small California coastal town where nothing is as it seems.


  • Fast-paced & funny

    It has been a few years since I read Brother Odd, and rediscovering Odd Thomas and Boo in Odd Hours was like running into an old dear friend I hadn't seen since high school! Odd remains true to form: at turns funny, lonely, humble, courageous, and always intriguing. A fry cook nursing a broken heart who wants to live a quiet life, Odd finds himself in the middle of trouble yet again. This was a really quick read that left me anxious for the next book in the series. Thank you, Dean Koontz, for the gift you have given us in Odd!

    Truly the best of the Odd books. Mr. Koontz, if fate so allows that you read this, you have an impeccable humor about you that shines through your writing. Under different circumstance, I imagine we could be great friends because you amuse me so. Instead, I value reading your works. They captivate, and truly allow for an escape from this reality, no matter how brief. Thank you for sharing your gift! ;)
  • Awesome!

    Odd Thomas is an amazingly rich character. All four books in this series have kept me going. But Dean, where's number 5? I need it! I want it! Write faster! :)
