In Odd We Trust

Title: In Odd We Trust
Author: Dean Koontz
Finished: April 25, 2010
Pages: 224
Published: 2008
Format: paperback

My first Dean Koontz novel, and I think a great introduction into Odd Thomas before starting the actual novels.

In Odd We Trust, a graphic novel, gives some back story to the character of Odd Thomas and how we began using his gift to help solve crimes. I have been apprehensive about starting the series because I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy the supernatural and science fiction aspect that sounds like Koontz’ books reflect, but after reading the graphic novel, I am more interested in finding out more about that storyline and characters.

In this particular story, Odd helps a little boy find his killer. It’s very interesting to see major fictional characters transformed into graphic novels and it definitely adds a new view to storytelling. Much is reflected on the picture and less on the words like in a novel.

Very good. Can’t wait to start the first official book of the series.
