OMBC – Odd Hours

51zy65ok7gl-_sx278_bo1204203200_Is it the second Wednesday already? Guess that means it’s time for another book review and as promised it’s on Odd Hours, the fourth installment in the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz. I really liked this book as it was quick and casual read, the characters were fun. Though sadly not as memorable as some those previous. I see this book as bit of a return to form with the series, or maybe Brother Odd was just the black sheep of series… Odd Hours feels equal parts spy novel and supernatural, with the two never really clashing in a way that feels out of place. I can see where Dean Koontz played with the idea of Odd here and it resulted in some rather spectacular character growth. My only real let down was with Frank Sinatra’s ghost as it felt like a character with a lot of missed potential.

That’s all for Odd Hours, next month I want to get back to the master of horror and my roots. With a review of a Stephen King novel, which one? At this moment I don’t know, but I’m looking forward to it all the same and I hope you do too. So until then, keep reading.
