One of our contemporary masters. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. This book is a little wordier, gets a lot deeper into Odd's head as we go along Though I love the series, I was in danger of letting it fall for a while, and it actually took me a little longer to get thru than the others in the series, but then the dog shoowed up. I know, I could just stop, but I have promised myself to read all of the Odd series, even though I feel Koontz has lost his grip on what makes books, well, gripping.

There is a sameness to the characters and the plot in a lot of books that just frustrate me.

It never fails to convince me that Koontz is a man who actually understands both love and grace. In Hideaway, a man suffers a bad car accident and now shares visions with a psychopathic killer. Our reluctant hero is drawn once more into a strange encounter with the lingering dead. In Deeply Odd see, we got here eventually the random, quirky friends get even more random and more quirky.

It was the first of over a dozen science fiction novels that followed. Speaking of forgetting, it sure seems that Koontz has forgotten how to write his own creations.
Fisher becomes Oddie's' partner in his mission to find and stop the evil cowboy to stop him before he kills the children. Like that alternate reality thing we previously mentioned, this has been done numerous times before too. Part of the problem is the amount of filler. He makes the world's best, fluffiest pancakes. So, right back where I started, it was 'okay'. Dimension: 197 x 131 x 27. Even though this is book six, I believe you can enjoy it without reading the previous books.
At the end, she and the perpetually-pregnant Annamaria seemed to already know each other.
