I really enjoyed the Odd Thomas series. They are fun, quirky books where a young man named Odd Thomas can see and interact with the dead. There is a reason for this brought out in the series, which ultimately serves a purpose. Odd even meets some famous dead people like Elvis!

I did find the books took a bit darker twist later in the series. Overall, I found them enjoyable. They did include bits of humor and sadness -- but, not at the same time as you presumed!

Thank you for the info.

Sounds like the light side of Brian Lumley's Necroscope series.

Well, I have that first one. I suppose I really should read it.

The last act of the first Odd Thomas book made me cry. I also cried when watching the movie.
I had no idea there was a movie!

Should I read the book first? Or see the movie first?

I've only seen the movie, as I don't like Dean Koontz' writing. But I did enjoy the movie.

I've only read about 6 or 7 of his books, back about 30 years ago. For me, they were OK, especially those title that he wrote around the time that "Strangers" [?] came out.

That leaves about 100 more novels to read - by him.

I will, however, be reading that first Odd Thomas book. That one sounds intriguing.
