What if you could communicate with your pet, and he or she could talk back to you? This is a great story about a dog who is genetically enhanced to be about as intelligent as a human, and a super-soldier beast from the same lab that runs a-muck! I wished desperately after reading this book in high school that I could get a dog with these same qualities. The Outsider is what nightmares are made of. This thriller tale kept me up at night until I finished it and left me in a state of shock and wonder when it was over. BEWARE: If you do not like gore, there are parts of this book that are not for you. There is also a significant amount of swearing that I did not enjoy, and some brief sexual situations. Nothing personal to Koontz, but I think there are some things that should stay behind closed doors. I would have given this book a 5 star rating if not for these things. It is still a good read, but proceed with some caution. This book is not for kids.
