April's Fantasy (Morning Session) - Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

Please join us as we discuss Odd Thomas by bestselling author Dean Koontz. The book is of medium length at about 446 pages.

Please keep your RSVP updated and accurate!* Space is limited for this event. If it fills up, please add yourself to the waiting list if interested. This is our morning discussion session. Our afternoon session can be found here.

From Amazon:

The dead don’t talk. I don’t know why.” But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Meet Odd Thomas, the unassuming young hero of Dean Koontz’s dazzling New York Times bestseller, a gallant sentinel at the crossroads of life and death who offers up his heart in these pages and will forever capture yours.

Sometimes the silent souls who seek out Odd want justice. Occasionally their otherworldly tips help him prevent a crime. But this time it’s different. A stranger comes to Pico Mundo, accompanied by a horde of hyena-like shades who herald an imminent catastrophe. Aided by his soul mate, Stormy Llewellyn, and an unlikely community of allies that includes the King of Rock ’n’ Roll, Odd will race against time to thwart the gathering evil. His account of these shattering hours, in which past and present, fate and destiny, converge, is a testament by which to live—an unforgettable fable for our time destined to rank among Dean Koontz’s most enduring works.

*Since missing one of these meetups is taking a spot away from someone else who wants to go, we'll need to have a stricter attendance policy than normal. For book discussions, 3 no-shows in a rolling 3-month period will prohibit you from attending any other book discussion for 2 months after your last no-show. In order to avoid a no-show, please update your RSVP no later than 10pm two nights before a discussion. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!

    I enjoyed the meeting more than I did the book. And I enjoyed the book :)

    Okay, maybe not the most complex book - but hey, there are levels of enjoyment - and hard, meaty, chewy is not always the only way to go! Great discussion that teased out a LOT of the subtlety in this book. Thanx to all for their insights and contributions!

    Anybody interested in switching to the afternoon session? I thought I'd signed up for the morning but apparently I'm not that bright.

    I have a spot for the afternoon session, but if anybody from the morning session is willing to swap with me that would be really helpful so I can take care of something else that's come up. thanks
