thoughtful, entertaining, researched
I never got bored. The plot moves along nicely, the characters are well developed, the scenarios believable. The concept of RDNA and some of the scariest issues around it are dealt with directly, while the characters express wonder at the possibilities. The author attempts to both warn and inform the reader of the potential of good and bad coming from this science.
I have not. J. Charles does an excellent job on this book!
The Tied and Bound
A good SciFi book, orated very well by J. Charles.
Koontz' best, I think. I've read it several times, and now I have been able to share it with my husband! Great story that makes me 2ant a golden retriever!
Liked the story very much, though I wanted a bit more detail at the end with the loose ends woven together a bit more closely, but still worth the listen. Great narrator: kept voices separate well.
Probably one of the best. tender, gory, suspenseful. strong characters. But still not the one I'm looking for. Dog introduced in Dragon Tears. it's been a long time since I listened on cassette, but have thought about the performance of that dog for all these years.Fantastic!
What a beautiful story of good vs. evil! Loved it and couldn't stop listening! I also enjoyed the narrator, he read this very well with lots of emotion. Definitely is a must read again and again.
The combination of adventure, humor and light science fiction along with a satisfying ending makes Watchers an entertaining break from heavier reading.
Just as the two sides of a coin fit together, I think that this story fits J. Charles and J. Charles fits this story. I definitely would not have enjoyed this story half as much without J. Charles' unique characterizations, tones and cadence. He draws the listener into the story and makes one care about the characters without taking himself or the story too seriously. I look forward to hearing more from him in the future.
I do not read or listen to books to get sad, and though I was once a fan, I had given up on Dean Koontz several years ago after he killed off some favorite characters "out of left field" in a couple of his books. I took those as a sort of betrayal of the reader. I thought I would give him another chance though, and I am glad that I did with this book.
