      I haven t read Dean Koontz in years I don t think I ve missed much after reading this one though BUT some of my other buddy readers think differently They are wrong.Dean Koontz can t even wash his panties in the same room with Stephen King.Now that I ve put that image in your head, I ll ramble some about the book You have this lab who had been creating super smart critters to fight They never really tell how so don t be getting your sciency on for this one There is a hit man who is offing the sc [...]

      Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Somehow I ve managed to live over five and a half dog years without ever reading a Dean Koontz novel However, when I was presented with the opportunity to do a buddy read with I jumped at the chance What do I have to say now that I m finished I mean LOTS better because I really had a pretty horrible time while reading this one In case you too have spent decades ignoring Koontz, here s the lowdown of what Watchers is about We start with Travis, a supposed [...]

    3. Edward Lorn on said:

      What started as a buddy read involving Stepheny, Dan 2.0, Delee, Kells and Shelbs, soon descended into organized Koontz shaming Our seemingly harmless group excursion into one of Dean Koontz s best books became a game of Who Can Take the Hottest Squat On E s Childhood That s fine, though, because Kells s and Shelbs s brains have been rotted by reading too much porn, and we all know that Dan 2.0 suffers from Ridiculous Disease, a disease that confuses fiction with real life and makes its sufferer [...]

    4. Maciek on said:

      Very overratedI had high expectations for the book, because of the almost universal applause it getsd it turned out to be yet another Koontz dog novel.The characters in this novel are shallow and cardboard the ex delta force soldier, a widower, falls in love with an abused woman Of course despite her abuse lasting for years she gets out of the shell in several months and gets pregnant, drives a car, even uses weapons The scene when they have weapons hidden all over their house is quite hilarious [...]

    5. Simeon on said:

      Unputdownable, with surprisingly deep characterization, and a super smart dog that runs around adorably a nightmarish monster that escapes a laboratory and starts munching on the peaceful population of modern suburbia.An immaculate mix of horror, romance, and action.

      Alright, I m jumping this review ahead of a few others in order to silence some of that grumbling from the peanut gallery And before they point out that I m still a week late, please note that I delayed releasing this due to Delee s ongoing internet troubles, so zip it We have a responsibility to stand watch over one another, we are watchers, all of us, watchers, guarding against the darkness Travis Cornell truly believes he s cursed Seemingly everyone he s ever loved has suffered an untimely de [...]

    7. Emma on said:

      I don t even care about all the things wrong with this book, I love it, I m going to 5 it, and I ll internet fight with anyone who wants to question it.

    8. Bianca on said:

      I totally enjoyed Watchers Honestly it is what it is, and, yes, some of the characterizations and descriptions were a bit, well, heavy handed But the dog, Einstein, is completely irresistible Mostlyis a real page turner It was my before bed reading, and most nights it gave me nightmares, but I couldn t stop reading And did I mention the dog In the first chapter, Travis Cornell is hiking in Santiago Canyon, and he finds or perhaps is found by a stray dog, who seems to be warning him about somethi [...]

    9. Jamie on said:

      blah Now, I know that when someone writes a book it doesn t have to reflect real life, but does that mean that they couldn t at least try to make it seem real Like whatever is going on in the book could really happen in the real world Do you think that Dean Koontz could have wrote a book that wasn t so drippy with sentimentality towards his favorite breed of dog, that other people could actually get through it Well, I did barely It was soooo dang painful too All his annoying story recipes were p [...]

    10. Bark on said:

      I recently reread this old favorite of mine as an unabridged audiobook It was one of my childhood favorites so I was almost afraid to touch it and ruin the mystique I d built up around it Surprisingly enough, I managed to enjoy most of it despite the fact that I ve become much pickier and crabbier about my reading choices as I ve, eh, matured.This is Koontz s famous tale about genetically engineered animals which is probably much probable and frightening now than it was in 1987 Political bigwig [...]

    11. Alejandro on said:

      This is one of the most popular novels of Dean Koontz The story appeals not only horror fans but I think that readers who like techno thriller may find quite amusing the book, since the story uses in a very creative way elements of science fiction and indeed you have a plot full of suspense Also, the book has clearly many of the trademark things of Dean Koontz You have a smart dog and can be easily one of the smarter dogs in Koontz s book, if not the smartest of all If you are a dog lover, this [...]

    12. Richard on said:

      3 10I did not enjoy this book at all I seem to be one of the few people though judging on the reviews on and I pretty much skimmed the last 200 pages which is the first time I ve ever had to do that with a book but I knew I would be reading it all month otherwise The concept plot of this book was intriguing to me and the whole ethical dilemma of animal testing with a bit of action thrown in for good measure sounded like it could be onto something Add into that there is a Labrador running around [...]

      3.5So, I guess it s time to come clean, guys.My name is Stepheny and I push books hangs head I know many of you had noooooo idea that I was a book pusher, but a select few have seen me doing it It s time to clear the air once and for all I push books because I like doing it I like forcing encouraging others to read books that I love I don t discriminate I push books on kids, teens, adults and the elderly I do it subtlety as well as in an in your face manner I push big books, small books, childre [...]

      3.5 starsI read this for the 80s Horror square for Halloween BingoWhen the telephone rang, it startled her She put down her pencil and reached for the receiver Hello Funny, a man said Excuse me They never heard of him I know this story has monsters, psycho killer, semi curses, awful bitter aunt, and government agents, but this was the moment that sent a chill down my spine Nora s aunt that kept her just about child protective services needed isolated dies and leaves Nora alone and fearful of the [...]

      One of my favorite Koontz books If you are a dog lover this will be a favorite If you re not this book might just change your mind Fantastic

    16. Rachel on said:

      I have read this book several times over the years, but it has been a while since the last time I read it.One of the things that amazes me about Koontz is his ability to create characters that pull you into the story and root for them The main characters, Travis and Nora, overcome difficulty early on in the book and it is clear that Koontz wants us to be on their side Additionally, there is the absolutely pure character of Einstein the Golden Retriever who it is nearly impossible NOT to like But [...]

    17. Scott Rhee on said:

      I once went through a Dean Koontz phase, which involved me going to the bookstore and completely clearing an entire shelf s worth of Koontz paperbacks I voraciously devoured not literally, of course them all in a relatively short span I m pretty sure I missed a few meals and a shower or two What Koontz lacks in literary depth, he than makes up for in readability, suspense, and just plain, old fashioned good storytelling Watchers was, hands down, my favorite of his mainly because the protagonist [...]

    18. Matthew on said:

      I went in to this hearing that this was the best Koontz book ever Of his books I have read, I would not say that this was my favorite maybe not even in the top 5 but it was still pretty good.The following may get me booed by some, but I am not really a dog person and Koontz often has a golden retriever as a main character I think that fact may have tainted my feelings about this book a bit I don t mind having a pet or an animal as a main character in a book, but here it felt like a bit much to m [...]

      Ostajem pri petici Koontz ponekad pi e naivno, ali tako jasno da ga svatko mo e itati Likovi su mu prete no trivijalni i i crno bijeli, ali kod njega mi to pa e A i jako volim pse Puno vi e od ljudi pa mi je Einstein i dalje pas broj 2 Pas broj jedan je Yoda, moj crni labrador Super knjiga za opu tanje Uzbudljiva, napeta, na dijelovima duhovita evo i drugi puta sam je pro itao i dobra je Prvi puta je bilo tamo davno jo u srednjoj koli.

    20. Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder* on said:

      I struggled between three and four stars, ultimately deciding on three as I think a bit could have been diced into the plot to make it exciting A good story, unique and I dug the simplicities of it The dog was awesome and he and the Outsider, by far, the best characters of the book I liked everyone, but as I said in a status update sort of , Koontz is of a plot guy rather than a character one His strength is in the story, which is cool, but sometimes his characterization skills seems a little [...]

    21. Carol on said:

      An entertaining and touching story that is part sci fi, part romance and part thriller resulting in a fast paced read If you are an animal lover, you will surely love Einstein the dog, but probably feel sorry for the Outsider too One of my favorite character s, other than Einstein of course, was the attorney, Garrison Dilworth What a tough old dude Enjoyed it

    22. Abbie | ab_reads on said:

      My first Dean Koontz novel and what a surprise it was I was not expecting to go into this one and come out with a new favourite on my hands I defy any dog lover to read this book and not fall in love with Einstein and the whole story.In a way, the plot reminded me of Frankenstein scientists messing around with genetics, creating things that probably should not be created and then reaping the consequences Koontz raises a lot of interesting questions and though I don t agree with some of his opini [...]

      Koontz , 1987 chaotic good chaotic bad , ,

    24. James DeSantis on said:

      I know a lot of people don t like Koontz, no clue why, I always enjoyed his stuff Even his weaker stuff I had some enjoyment So I picked up one of his most loved books and I have a lot of positives to say about it I don t like giving a description of things Because you can see that on or I like to get into the good and bad So real fast the basic idea is Travis, our main character, stumbles on a dog who is extremely smart We re talking human level smart However The other a creature of evil is hun [...]

    25. Marvin on said:

      Watchers is as good as Dean Koontz gets and it is pretty damn good There are all the hallmarks of what put Koontz on the top of his game, which he was in the late 80s There non stop storytelling There s a believable and likable protagonist There s a terrible but fascinating villain Koontz writes some of the best villains in modern horror And, of course, there is a really cool dogGolden retriever of course It is this intellectually enhanced dog that really carries the tale and makes it rise above [...]

    26. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      Watchers was a typical Dean Koontz novel nothing all that wonderful, but a cut above many of the mass market fictions out there And the canine theme was very different, a little like Koontz The Darkest Evening of the Year, but sci fi than thriller.

    27. leslye on said:

      Can I give than 5 stars I ve never been into Dean Koontz books, but this one is different It tests the boundary between real and sci fi Koontz can be brilliant, mediocre, and really bad I couldn t even finish Darkfall But when he gets it right, he gets it really, really right Though I rarely re read novels, I was excited to pick this one up again after all these years.You will simply fall in love with the characterscluding perhaps especially the dog The dog Einstein is a brilliant, huggable gol [...]

    28. David Church on said:

      Dean Koontz is a hit or miss author with me This book has set on my shelf for 20 years collecting dust Never watched the movie either so I had no inclination to what this book was about After a 3 year Koontz Hiatus I decided to give it a go Koontz has been kind of formulaic to me single parent ex cop golden retriever problem child etc So the first few pages I was like damn it here comes the widower dog combo, my doubts started creeping in Same ole Koontz I was thinking Actually I was glad to be [...]

      I read this book way back in high school when I didn t do a whole lot of reading.The story revolves around a man and a woman who both happen to own super intelligent golden retrievers who can communicate with their humans I loved the idea and tried for weeks in vane to get Robin, our resident golden retriever, to give me a glimpse of her hidden genius She chased her tail and humped a pillow Darn.Oops I stand corrected t was only one genius dog One dog, bringing people together saving lives, taki [...]

    30. Gena on said:

      I absolutely LOVED this book I bought it because it had a Golden Retriever on the cover and since I love Dogs I was hoping I would enjoy it I have to say that this book is probably one of my most favorites books I have ever read I laughed, I cried, I was scared which is rare and I was very intrigued through the whole book Great characters and the story was very believing I couldn t believe that this book came out 20 years ago I highly recommend it
