Publisher's Summary

From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose.

Best-selling author Dean Koontz presents his most terrifying, dramatic, and moving novel: The explosive story of a man and a woman, caught in a relentless storm of mankind's darkest creation.

©2004 Dean Koontz; (P)2004 Brilliance Audio

What the Critics Say

"Cross Lassie with E.T., add a touch of The Wolfen and a dash of The Godfather, and you get a sense of some of the ingredients in this supernatural thriller, which should move Koontz a notch closer to Stephen King's high-rent district." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Thrilling ride told by a masterful writer."

    This story engages you from the opening and takes you down the road of understanding what a dog with human characteristics would be thinking. Einstein is a brave and courageous character that is so easy to love. The development of all three characters is as important as the main subject of good versus evil. This novel was intense with many heartwarming moments. I believe I shall listen to it again. Narrated very good as well.

    Story
    "Pretty hard to take."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Teen age persons just learning to read?


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dean Koontz again?

    Never.


    Would you be willing to try another one of J. Charles’s performances?

    NO.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    Too light on content, grade school level writing. Returned it and went back to Nabokov and Camus.

    "I loved Einstein definitely favorite my character"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Watchers to be better than the print version?

    i loved them both! I read the book when i was a teen, it was my fist Dean K books to ever read. I was hooked. I wonder if i would feel the same listening to it all these years later. I did. I have listened to it twice this week!


    What other book might you compare Watchers to and why?

    this book is way to good to compare it to something else.


    Have you listened to any of J. Charles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this was my first time. he wasn't bad. it was more like he was reading the story to me. I didn't mind at all.


    If you could rename Watchers, what would you call it?

    the special dog.

    "Love this book"

    I read this book years ago and coming back to it was a wonderful experience. I felt the reader was pretty good, though there were some times where I feel he didn't hit the emotions well enough. Over all I would definitely listen again.

    "There is no reason not to enjoy this story."

    One of the best stories ever by one of the best authors ever. This one has it all, endearing characters, vile villains, action, romance (but not too much), suspense and a most engaging plot line to name a few. Also, one of the best narration performances I have ever heard.
    Not a story you will ever regret reading.
