Just finished the 1st Odd Thomas book and I'm watching the movie now as well. I liked the book and the snappy patter between Odd, the Chief, and Stormy at times and it made me laugh in numerous places. Obviously a 20 year old isnt going to have that kind of dialogue with himself or others but it was still pretty funny. 1/2 way through the movie and Anton Yelchin seems miscast, maybe Nick Hoult would have been better? Didnt know Oddie was such a brawler either but I'm enjoying it. I plan to start the next n the series and read it in dribs and drabs between King books. Anyone else into this serries. It's my first Koonts book.
