this is one of my fav koontz books of all time, it has everything in, suspense, love, a dog!!!! its the kind of book you can read again and again. the charecters are typical koontz, a loner who has no will to live until he meets a dog who's got special powers. you can even feel sad for the so called baddie. has a really good ending to shocking, sad then hopeful!!!

short synopsis:

They escape from a secret government lab - two mutant creatures, both changed utterly from the animals they once were. A widower, an assassin, a beautiful woman and a government agent; all are drawn together in a deadly hunt, propelled toward a confrontation with an evil beyond human imagining.

I just got done rereading this book. I do love it! I got more emotional over this book then a lot of his others. The cast of characters are great. I could have done without Vince. I didn't think he was necessary to the story. Before everyone freaks out on me about that thought, remember, it is just an opinion. I thought it was a strong story without him and to me he just seemed out of place to the story. One of my favorite characters in this book is one of the sub-characters, Garisson Dillworth. I just love that man! I would have to give this story a -even with Vince!
-Amanda, borderline disturbing.

I also just reread Watchers. The thing I enjoy about Koontz's books is that he makes you care about the characters. I got real sappy reading the last 20 pages or so. Great story! I didn't think this book was as scary as most of his books, which was fine by me. And, I really cared for The Outsider, not something I can say about most of the baddies in his books!

'Watchers is the first book I read of Dean Koontz. I have collected every one of his book since then. I don't know what I'd do if Koontz stopped publishing. 'Watchers' was definitely the best of em all.

watchers is by far my favorite dean koontz book. it mixes so many great genres together, and it's the only book that has almost made me cry... yes i admit that..

on a side note, have any of you noticed how koontz links his books together? because in seize the night, he talks about the francis project, which is the project that created einstein.... i read that in seize the night and was like "THE FRANCIS PROJECT! WATCHERS! AHH!" i think he does it in a few of his other books also, but that was the one that i remembered
