Overview: Odd has moved from the Monastery to a small town named Magic Beach. His history as a fry cook has gotten himself a rather easy job as a cook for an elderly man. This gives him plenty of time to help Mr. Sinatra cross over. Too bad Odd is having nightmares about a petite woman and a red tide. Well there goes his vacation. How will Odd handle this one?
Story Telling: We have the fourth book in a paranormal thriller with this novel. Odd Thomas novels are written in first-person point-of-view. So if you don’t like this style, you might not want to read this one.
Dislikes: So many Americans didn’t understand what makes this nation great. We don’t need to agree completely with everyone else. Individualism is what allows us to succeed in life if you so choose.
Likes: We get to meet Annamarie in this novel. She was quite mysterious, but, you can place her if you know what to look for.
Odd was pretty stubborn. You’d have to be, to take on what he did. Blossom and Birdie was fun. Not to mention Hutch’s kindness was great, as was his loyalty to his friends.
Favorite Character: Birdie was willing to follow the Spirit wherever it leads. And Hutch was willing to fight through the fears he had spent years dealing with.
Favorite Scene: One word needed: PolterFrank! That was beautiful.
Favorite Quote: In regards to PolterFrank. “I didn’t say Rod Stewart. He said Rod Stewart.”
Conclusion: This is a terrific addition to the Odd Thomas series. Enjoy it as a fun addition to your paranormal library.
