4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read!!, April 8, 2006
This review is from: Forever Odd (Odd Thomas) (Hardcover)
Odd Thomas is his name. He lives a simple life as a fry cook at a grille in the town of Pico Mundo, CA. and he sees dead people.

Forever Odd is book two about this plain and simple character who has a special gift to see the deceased, including Elvis, who have not yet crossed over.

In this story, Odd must try to save the life of his friend, Danny Jessup. Danny is 21 and handicapped by OI (osteogenesis imperfecta) also known as brittle bones. Deformed by this disease, Danny does not date and in a weak moment turns to phone sex. Danny discovers that the woman he repeatedly speaks to is interested in the supernatural. To impress her Danny tells her about his friend, Odd.

The phone sex goddess, Datura, read about Odd in the papers last August after the murders at the mall. Hoping that Odd will conjure up some ghosts for her, she kidnaps Danny knowing Odd will try to rescue him.

She takes Danny to an old burnt out casino where spirits are still lurking after five years since the earthquake and fire. Odd follows his friend hoping it isn't too late for Danny.

Book two in the saga of Odd Thomas is a stand alone read. Odd is a likeable and endearing character. He has a strange assortment of friends and they are all assets to the story. The tale is not as dark as you might think since the author infuses much humor along the way to keep it light. Good read.
