Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
I see dead people. But then, by God, I do something about it. Odd Thomas never asked for his special ability. He’s just an ordinary guy trying to live a quiet life in the small desert town of Pico Mundo. Yet he feels an obligation to do right by his otherworldly confidants, and that’s why he’s won hearts on both sides of the divide between life and death. But when a childhood friend disappears, Odd discovers something worse than a dead body and embarks on a heart-stopping battle of will and wits with an enemy of exceptional cunning. In the hours to come there can be no innocent bystanders, and every sacrifice can tip the balance between despair and hope.
 
You’re invited on an unforgettable journey through a world of terror and transcendence to wonders beyond imagining. And you can have no better guide than Odd Thomas.

    I really enjoyed the suspense, but sometimes it can be too descriptive for my liking. Great characters and plot though. Can't wait to read the next one!

    Don't let the page #s fool you. A quick read with lots of dialogue. Slow paced at time but good read. I easily throw books down that don't hold my interest. This one keep moving.

    Many Odd fans felt that this book was a huge step backwards for the series, and I understand where they are coming from. When compared to the first book, Forever includes far fewer interactions with the characters we came to love in Odd Thomas. This was more of a "one man" suspense thriller. I still felt as though I was on a journey with Odd, but the hallways and corridors became repetitive over time. The main adversary was uniquely twisted, but other than that, there were hardly any memorable characters. I like the series and enjoyed this book enough to still recommend the Odd universe to a friend.
