Odd Apocalypse – Book Review
So this book just solidifies my “every other Odd book” theory. The first book is great, the second book was just okay, the third book great, and that last book I didn’t care for at all. This book brings back the great. When we left Odd at the end of Odd Hours he was in a car with Annamaria, a ghost dog, and a real dog. Here we find he has stopped in a place called Roseland only a few days after we left him. And of course within the first few pages we are shown that everything is not as it seems at Roseland where suddenly night will fall in the middle of the day and strange creatures seem to suddenly appear. While Odd would love to hit the road and leave this place behind, the ever eccentric Annamarie tells him that someone there needs his help. I really loved the mystery that surrounds Roseland and what is going on there. I felt like an old Odd story again rather than what I was worried about at the end of Odd Hours. If you’re a fan of Odd Thomas this is a must read. My only real gripe is that there seems to be some references that don’t add up to the time table of the series. This is supposed to be set 18 months after the first book but references to Justin Beiber and the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series pop up. That doesn’t make much sense. But the quality of the story more than makes up for it.
