Forever Odd  - Dean Koontz My favorite still so far is the first in the series. Forever Odd is a rather small story involving only a limited number of characters with really only one story arc and one principle setting (a burned out casino) in the whole book. The action takes place over one day. Since I read it on an e-reader I really don't know how many pages it was, but it seemed like I finished it in no time at all. Despite a rather simple story line, I really enjoyed my time with Odd---he continues to be one of the most interesting characters I have met. Once again, I found myself either nodding or laughing out loud at his narration and his statements about his philosophy of life. And the story, albeit a rather straightforward hunt and chase, was compelling as told by Mr. Thomas. I wonder how much of Dean Koontz is in this character. Probably quite a bit.
