The dead don’t talk, and Odd Thomas doesn’t know why. He does, however, attract them, along with a lot of other trouble. In his final adventure, Odd returns to his hometown of Pico Mundo to protect it from a murderous cult who want to destroy people in the name of destruction.
I love the Odd Thomas series, but, over all, this was an unsatisfying end. As much as I adored the early adventures of Odd, the last few have just felt tedious. It might be the broadening of the universe to include others, each more quirky than him. I’m not sure and I just can’t put my finger one it. The predictability of Odd’s fate may have had something to do with it; even knowing what was coming, it just seemed anticlimactic.
Thanks, Odd, for the adventures. I’ll always remember you how your were.
