Forever Odd is the sequel to Dean Koontz's brilliant novel, Odd Thomas. Has anyone else read it? For those of you that have no idea what I'm talking about, if you love a story with suspense, sci-fi, romance, and humor you should check out Odd Thomas and Forever Odd.

I read some of Dean Koontz's books years ago....around the same time I started reading Stephen King.  I think he's a terrific writer, but I haven't read Forever Odd or Odd Thomas.  I haven't read anything he's written in the past several years.  In fact, it's hard to find time to read, period, since I got so involved with this forum and other sites.

The main character is named Odd Thomas and he has the ability to see the dead. They come to him wanting him to find their killer so they can have some sort of peace. Odd also has a form of psychic powers. But that's not what the whole books are about. In the first one, we learn a lot about his background and his girlfiend, Stormy. There are these black wisps of smoke-like creatures that  only Odd can see and he calls them "bodachs." They only come around when something tragic is about to happen. They come to witness the blood and death. So in Odd's town of Pico Mundo, he's starts to notice these bodachs appearing in droves. So Odd has to figure out what's going to happen and try to stop it. Very surprising ending!


The second book, Forever Odd, is a little more sad but I won't spoil anything. One of his childhood friends gets kidnapped and Odd uses his "psychic magnetism" to try and find him.

If you're looking for something new to read, I definitely suggest them.

That actually sounds very interesting.  I might have to go and get it from my Grandma.  A lot of people have been recomending it to me so I'll probably end up reading it soon.
