I find myself unusually lost for an opinion on this book. It was okay, it wasn’t fantastic by any means but it wasn’t bad either. Odd is just that, odd. He’s interesting at times, at times he’s a little too strange. I liked the premise of the book, seeing dead people and that but it didn’t quite live up to the first chapter.
It dragged on in places and the bits about his parents seemed irrelevant to the plot and didn’t add anything to the story in my opinion. I did like Odd and I liked Stormy too but again both are strange characters.
The plot itself is good but if he had livened up the story a bit it would have been a lot better. The scene in the old brothel is good and probably my favourite bit of the book. It’s the only part where my heart started to pound anyway.
It does what it says on the tin. It’s an odd book.
