From a top secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. Find all of my reviews at I’ve managed to live over five and a half dog years without ever reading a Dean Koontz novel However when I was presented with the opportunity to do a buddy read with I jumped at the chance What do I have to say now that I’m finished I mean LOTS better because I really had a pretty horrible time while reading this one In case you too have spent decades ignoring Koontz here’s the lowdown of what Watchers is about We start with Travis a supposed former Delta Force member who must have suffered some severe head trauma or something that made him no longer be awesome Then we meet Bella Swan Nora Poor Nora is a special snowflake who was forced to live as a recluse by her crazy ass aunt Now that evil Aunty has finally kicked the bucket Nora can let her freak flag fly Ha Not really Nora can pretty much only drone on and on and on and on about how difficult things were for her while Travis tells her how much she is smart she is kind and she is important I would like it to be on the record that I will gladly volunteer as tribute to deliver the bitchslapping to Nora that she sooooooo deserves Finally we get to meet the star of the show – aka the smartest pooch ever grown in a lab No offense el doggito but there can only be one Einstein Anywho the whole story is about how Travis finds supermutt and then finds Nora and they fall into instalovey loveytimes and discover that Einstein is a real Einstein all while trying to keep it on the downlow that they have the dog everyone and their well dog is looking for while trying to avoid an abomination that was also created by the government known as “The Outsider” and not to mention not get whacked by a mafia hitman You’d think with all that going on this would’ve been interesting huh Well you’d be wrong ‘cause it was boring as shit Basically this was eleventy trillion pages of a lesson on man’s inhumanity to man written by a dude who seriously has a thing for dogs Like so much that I’m pretty sure he’s one of the people all the right wing nutters were thinking about wanting to marry his pet when they were trying to keep gay marriage illegal Save your breath if you want to troll me One thing I know for certain is Just ask Edward Okay maybe not him Ask Shelby instead I’d tell you to ask Delee but her interwebs is broke Ron 20 disagrees with me 100% of the time out of spite and it will be October before he gets a review posted anyway and Stepheny is on like Chapter 1 still so she doesn’t even know the snoozefest she’s about to subject herself to

WatchersThe other a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature And both are on the looseBestselling author Dean Koontz presents his most ter. Very overratedI had high expectations for the book because of the almost universal applause it getsand it turned out to be yet another Koontz dog novelThe characters in this novel are shallow and cardboard the ex delta force soldier a widower falls in love with an abused woman Of course despite her abuse lasting for years she gets out of the shell in several months and gets pregnant drives a car even uses weapons The scene when they have weapons hidden all over their house is uite hilarious Also of course both of our heroes conveniently either invested their moneyor inherited a large sum from a dead aunt and don't have to work for the rest of their livesand did I mention that the dog is special 2 words You can read this book if you are a Koontz fan you might even get engrossed in it but it's one of those books that you forget the moment you put it back on the shelf
