Like most of you bookworms, my to be read list is totally out of control. With so many books on my bookshelf and pending on my kindle, theres not enough time. Its one of the reasons I love my 45 minute tube journey to and from work. I pop my headphones in and get lost in my current read.
“The dead don’t talk. I don’t know why.” But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Meet Odd Thomas.
Odd Thomas, what a brilliant name, and a captivating read.
Some will love this book, some will like it, whereas others may not.
I personally loved it, although this has been published for some time, I was fortunate enough to have been gifted a copy, and from the first few pages I was hooked.
Odd himself is unique, quirky, I loved his level of compassion, and his need to protect others, both the living and the dead. I couldn’t help but feel for him, and his empathy towards others.
I did guess some of the plot but I was not disappointed, in fact its the same route I would have chosen too. A worthwhile read into the bizarre and brilliant mind of Odd Thomas.
