I read this in one sitting. What kept popping into my mind as I turned page after page, not putting it down for hours, was... "this is as though Odd Thomas was written by Danielle Steel or Nora Roberts." None of that is a bad thing. I LOVE Odd Thomas and I enjoy both Danielle Steel and Nora Roberts from time to time. I was thoroughly entertained for the hours mesmerized. Also, the way the ending tied things up while moving things forward was particularly impressive.
I will very much enjoy reading the sequel to this.
