Watchers by Dean Koontz was a phenomenal read. Speaking as a pet owner, (particularly a Golden Retriever owner), this book really pulled on the heart strings while building some great suspense and terrifying horror. The mystery of the stories unknown creature, The Outsider, was very well done and I thought it was a smart move not to include parts of the book where we were taken into the point of view of both The Outsider and the Golden Retriever, Einstein, both whom become the central focus of the story. The action was equaled by the intense drama and emotional struggles of the characters, and Einstein is one of the most beloved animals in the written word. For anyone who loves Dean Koontz, horror/mystery books, or emotional stories about pets, then I recommend Watchers by Dean Koontz!
