"And the shape of home baked bread, and the girl in a turned down bed, and a wick of twisted thread, from the loving words you said."

Odd Thomas

Where you gonna go
Now they’ve closed the old home down
And everybody’s let you down?
But you’re the beauty of the town
Baby, don’t get hung up in your soul
Don’t let ‘em make your heart grow old
Don’t get hung up in your soul
Baby, don’t get hung up in your soul

You’re the one who’s seen

The darkness on the edge of town
You’re the one my arm’s around
You’re the thorn and you’re the crown
Baby, don’t get hung up in your soul
Don’t let ‘em make your heart grow old
Don’t get hung up in your soul
Baby, don’t get hung up in your soul

Sometimes I’ll hear a song and immediately realize I’ve just discovered the soul of a novel. I feel like a matchmaker. They are two unrelated entities, but I will never be able to separate them from each other. I get so profoundly and absurdly wrapped up in connections like this one (“Don’t Get Hung Up In Your Soul” by Richard Hawley and Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz), that I have to stop everything I’m doing as the entire emotional impact of the book rushes at me in a space of under five minutes. This happens every single time I hear it, and it just makes me want to read the book again. It’s exciting. It’s exhausting. Shuffle, therefore, is rather a lot like literary Russian Roulette.
