Format: Mass Market Paperback
Watchers is, I'd say, the perfect example of the sort of novels Dean Koontz used to write, back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It has excitement, danger, monsters, shadowy government forces, recombinant DNA, a man, a woman and a super-intelligent dog. What more could one ever want in a thriller? There is a refreshing lack of quirky humour, and an absence of eccentric names, just thrills, suspense, action. For those who are only familiar with Koontz's most recent output, I recommend Watchers. It will show you what the rest of us have been missing for the last decade.

I read two Koontz books of late and was left disappointed by the abrupt ends. As always the story grabs you from the beginning and creates an understanding and closeness to the characters. Koontz even gets us to feel extremely close the the two main animal characters. However just as we get into this great story he seems to rush to the finish. In my opinion he seems to struggle to close the loose ends and end the story quickly. I don't under stand how we can have an entire chapter dedicated to describing a landscape and setting a scene but spend less then that ending the novel.

I guess what I'm saying is that the book could have been 50-75 pages longer. Closing the book -(the final battle) could have been written more suspenseful and perhaps contained a couple of surprises.

First of all, I am astounded at the five-star ratings for this novel. It was like reading a screenplay for a made-for-TV movie for the USA Network. I could expand on my criticism for the book, but its taken up enough of my time already. No point in letting it waste more. Readers, be warned: Not everybody found "Watchers" to be a five-star read.

This book is bad. The monster is stupid and really the book doesn't have much of a plot-at least not the type of plot that someone with an IQ in at least double figures can appreciate. Koontz doesn't know how to weave myth into his stories. Rather than coming up with good ideas, he makes tales about mutant monkeys running around attacking people in the bushes and crying about a low self-esteme.

A very interesting premise, with the promise for plenty of intrigue and mystery. I felt the second half of the book didn't deliver on the build-up, relying on character development of the protagonists. Still, a nice read.

I loved the story, the characters, the interesting twists. I couldn't put the book down! If you are a dog lover it is an extra bonus!

I've read a lot of books and this by far is the best I've ever read. I got caught within the first 6 pages. I hope I can find another book like this again someday.
