I agree i loved the prose, it was charming,fun. It fit the story well.
True, emotionally horrific I suppose, but not scary or gory. Even the crimes that are very horrific are written lightly so that, while one feels for the characters, it's not the kind of book you are going to put under the covers at night just to get it out of your sight. (Watchers creature was scary)
My (big chicken never going to read horror or watch horror because it will give me nightmares) teenagers read Odd
too. They didn't have nightmares, and loved the books.
