rating: 4 of 5 stars
I had no expectations when I began this book, it being my introduction to Koontz (I'm not sure how this is possible). I was not disappointed. In fact, I almost entirely removed my own self from the world of the living while reading it. It definitely falls into the "couldn't put it down" category, even if its premise isn't entirely original. For me it really was about the characters. I loved Odd. And Stormy. And their relationship. And the way he expressed his feelings about their relationship. And I loved all of the other lovable characters running the gamut between mostly normal to eccentric and possibly insane. It was chilling and sensitive. I think that I felt nearly every range of emotion while reading this. I'm relieved that I don't have to wait around for the next Odd book to come out!
