The writing is good, and the characters are well – drawn. There is plenty of mystery and suspense, and it keeps you interested all the way through.
I like the self -deprecating humor of Odd Thomas. It relieves the darkness to a certain extent. There is no doubt that Odd Thomas is odd but in a nice way.
Roseland is owned by a mysterious and reclusive billionaire. Though sumptuous it is an evil place, however when I say that, it’s really the people that are evil, not the house itself. Odd Thomas is a fry cook who sees dead people. They can’t talk to him or hurt him. He communicates with them by asking questions, and they nod or shake their head which makes life difficult for him when he is trying to help them with their problems, so that they can pass over. The mysterious Annamaria, the Lady of the Bell, accompanies him to Roseland. There is time travel, cruelty, murder,ghosts, revenge, kindness, and love to keep the plot moving along.
This book departs from his normal thriller/horror/fantasy novel and includes some elements of sci-fi.
Odd Thomas’s pithy comments on life , and the political and social situation are entertaining. He is humble and brave. You can’t help but like him.
