10/50 Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

I took this book with me to  surgery way back in April. It was the surgery that diagnosed my ovarian cancer. Needless to say,  I barely read any of it because I couldn't concentrate at all.  Finally, after 2 long months, 3 surgeries, 3 weeks in the hospital and 3 weeks recovering at home, I picked up this book again, determined to resume my life.

I like the character Odd Thomas. Koontz has a series with this character and I will probably read all of the books. The story was engaging, but light enough to get me back in the groove. Koontz always manages to surprise me at the end of his books. Even when I look for it. This story about the reluctant detective who sees dead people is fun to read.

3/5 stars
