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 like this series. This is the 2nd book in the Odd Thomas books. This series is all about good vs evil and the price that sometimes has to be paid for good to win. Thomas is such a good soul!! I don't usually like books like these because they can make me cry which I hate, I'm not one of those people that likes a good cry every once in a while I just feel sad and tired!! This series is the exception. I'm a huge Dean Koontz fan from way back and this series doesn't appear to change that. Happy reading.

I liked this book, though it's much less grand in scale when compared to the first book. I'm going to work through the series unless the third book proves too tedious. So far I like the character enough to ignore the flaws in the plotting.

Would love to read more books with Odd as the main character.
Koontzs' writing is the most involving, descripting, insightful and almost mesmerizing I have read. I'm struggling to find the correct adjectives here....... I love his writing but pace myself accordingly before reading.

I actually enjoyed this one more than the first in the series. Forever Odd was tautly written with excellent pacing. Insofar as most of the introductions to this world happened in the first novel, this novel was able to concentrate solely on this mystery and it was a fascinating outing for our boy Odd Thomas. Good stuff.

This one if very disappointing in comparison to book 1 and book 3 in the series. I understand that a lot of what this book did sets up for the third but it was too much running around. The only thing that redeemed this novel for me was Odd's introspection.

I love Odd Thomas. He is his usual self in this book and I loved the ending. The next book is even better.

Good, but not as good as the first for me.

A great read with an adorable Odd Thomas providing an exciting story with lots of twists and turns. Highly recommend it !!

I gave this 5 stars because it IS an amazing book. If I had never read Odd Thomas, I would have loved this book.

Since I did read, and ADORE, Odd Thomas, I liked this book but thought it was odd (no pun intended) that there was suddenly these brand new characters with whom Odd had such a great relationship with.

In saying that, Odd Thomas is the perfect character and I will be checking out the third book because of that reason. Nothing will top the first of the series though!
