Just read the Outsider after stopping halfway through and thought it was OK. I actually had to read the Hodges Trilogy first as I had no idea who Holly was and wanted to be familiar with her before I continued.
With all the powers the Outsider had, including reading minds, I thought he should have been harder to track and kill than he was. I guess that was my only complaint. I was more worries about Brady swapping bodies than the Outsider by the end.
I'm done the novels now...going back to read the short story collections I never got around to and catching up on some Joe hill that I missed...The Fireman and Strange Weather.
