Because he did not fit Anton and Ms. Grimes qualifications, he was denied equal employment opportunity at that store. Socrates got the job, however he was assigned to work at another store in Santa Monica with Rodriguez, who is “always talking about giving guys a chance,” (Mosley 8). Walter Mosley’s representation of Socrates with symbolism in the 19the century is very typical of how African American ex-convicts were treated applying for employment in the United States then, and

Odd Thomas reminded me of The Sixth Sense from the first page to the last. In fact, I can’t quite figure out how it is that Dean Koontz wrote a book that mined such similar territory, and still managed to keep me up until 2am reading it.

Among them are the sheriff, who helps Odd avoid the usual trouble with people asking pesky questions, some coworkers at the diner where he works as a short-order cook, and the love of his life, Stormie.
