My Review of Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz (My All Time Favorite Author)

OddOdd Thomas is one of Dean Koontz’ strange yet endearing characters who spans several books and participates in exciting adventures. Although many look at Odd (a misspelling of Todd at the hospital when he was born) as a hero, he continues to point out to those who’ll listen that he’s jut an unemployed fry cook.

In Deeply Odd, our hero, er…, unemployed fry cook, runs into an evil cowboy (a worthy story villain) and after a brief encounter over fruit in a grocery store, feels compelled to follow the evil man and stop him from committing a horrible crime on three innocent children. Using his special abilities, Odd pursues the man aided by a ghost dog named Boo, the ghost of Alfred Hitchcock, and a kindly  “smoothed out and fully blue” woman named Edie Fischer who keeps insisting that Odd is her new chauffeur. They travel to a lone hillside where Odd discovers it’s not only three children in danger, but seventeen. And it’s not just the one cowboy, it’s a crowd of like-minded individuals gathered as if attending a party with the demented cowboy as host. The odds are against Odd, but that’s when he shines.

This was the latest story in the series and a worthy addition. I’m looking forward to another adventure with Odd.
