Odd Thomas – Odd Apocalypse

How Edgy is it?
How Catholic is it?

We’re scoring Odd Thomas – Odd Apocalypse as Edgiest and Catholic.  This one was a bit complex, with the supernatural mixed with some science fiction and some monsters.  The villains are definitely edgy.  In fact, the sexual violence and crimes of these villains are among the edgiest we have seen in the Odd Thomas series since the seminal work.  And, the Odd One starts having doubts about the status of his soul.  That’s pretty Catholic, but it would be more Catholic if he got some spiritual direction or at least the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  The Odd Thomas series is definitely Catholic thematically but has drifted from the more overt Catholic references in the original story and Brother Odd.
