Dean Koontz is an exceptional writer, and the Odd Thomas series is some of his best work. There seemed to be a few years where he was just releasing some books to fulfill his contract with his publisher, but those days seem over. A very good writer telling a story he clearly loves telling. Hopefully the movie(s) does his series justice.

How Disappointing. I am a Koontz fan from way back & have all his books, most twice. I love Odd, but Deeply Odd is such a disappointment that I will not buy another book just because Koontz wrote it. For one the book really lacks a plot or anything else for that matter, unless you want to call pages upon pages and chapters upon chapters of him describing to you what a warehouse looks like and scenery on road trips look like; because that is what this book is all about. Right from the get go Koontz tells you that off has a vision about a truck driver killing some kids, he does not even peak your interest with this. I felt I knew the ending before it even began. He did introduce 2 new characters he could have developed quite nicely but of course he didn't which was another disappointment. The take I got from this book is that Koontz either had someone else write this for him...since Odd did not even sound like Odd on the few occasions he even spoke or did something other describe things in the book, or Koontz has major writers block and owed a publishing company a novel with so many words...since that is all this book is is WORDS with no purpose or intent. I'd just like to know how he managed to screw up a book about such a well established character as Odd. Like others who are Odd fans I would have like to have seen Odd meet up with Chris Snow or Deucalion. I mean really even if he had writers block there was so many other places he could have gone with this story than to just give us a bunch of meaningless descriptions that basically had nothing to do with the story other than fill up pages. No writer can put out great story's every time, but how can you screw up such a wonderfully established character such as Odd....from this point on I will be going to B&N book stores and using my hour free read on my Nook before buying one of his books. I was not too happy with his last book 77 Shadow Street either, I felt the same way, that he was just trying to fill pages with words. Such a disappointment to lose one of your favorite authors.

    Another great book by Dean Koontz, He starts the action off pretty fast in this book and that's really good and stops every so often for a comedic break so in the norm for odd thomas novels I'm sad the series is ending in the next book but every good series must come to an end

    Another ODD and riveting episode!

    This book seems more dark at times but Koontz always brings Odd Thomas back to place where we can catch a breath and keep going. Keeps the adventure going.

    Not up to usual standards

    I did not get the usual can't wait to finish and see what happens. More far out than usual. But will always read any Odd Thomas that Koontz produces.

    Familiar, comfy read

    Not the best of the series, but enjoyable nonetheless. Those new to the series can still read this without the previous books. I have read all and still find them all difficult to put down.

    Good read

    Really like Odd's view of the world. Charming, funny, and a bit frightening.

    I have read many of Dean Koontz books I am almost done with wispers, a great read by the way and steamy in areas. I am looking forward to reading his latest Odd thomas, have read one. I have not ever been dissapointed and I also like/ love Steven King and have read many of his books as well and he is a fan, what does that tell you?
