They’re making a movie of DeanKoontz’s Odd Thomas. Dean Koontz seems to be excited about it, even though he has generally not had very good luck with movie adaptations of his novels. I wonder who will be playing the title role.
I generally like to read Koontz’s books. He features good, likeable characters who often face monstrous evils. They are heroes, but quiet sort of heroes who do what they have to do without seeking glory. The lessons of his novels emphasize the simple but important things in life, love and family, decent behavior, etc.
I looked it up on that invaluable resource wikipedia and Anton Yelchin will be playing Odd Thomas. I’ve never heard of him but judging from the picture in the article, he looks the part.
