Teaser Tuesday--Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today's teasers come from Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz.
"Were I to walk up to him and give him a narcissistic hug, the paradox of two Odd Thomases might at once be resolved. One of us might disappear. Or perhaps both of us would explode. 
Big-browed physicists tell us that two objects cannot under any circumstances occupy the same place at the same time. They warn us that any effort to put two objects in the same place at the same time will have catastrophic consequences.
When you think about it, a lot of fundamental physics is the solemn statement of the absurdly obvious. Any drunk who has tried to put his car where a lamppost stands is a self-educated physicist."

Odd Thomas ARC, pg. 79.

What are YOU reading this week? 


  1. I read my first (and thus far, only) Koontz book recently. It was such a different read from what I normally delve into but it sure held my attention from start to finish. I can see why he's a best-seller.

  2. Dean Koontz is the master of creating unusual plots.

  3. Nice tease! Hear that Dean Koontz's books are good!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!
