this is one of my fav koontz books of all time, it has everything in, suspense, love, a dog!!!! its the kind of book you can read again and again. the charecters are typical koontz, a loner who has no will to live until he meets a dog who's got special powers. you can even feel sad for the so called baddie. has a really good ending to shocking, sad then hopeful!!!

short synopsis:

They escape from a secret government lab - two mutant creatures, both changed utterly from the animals they once were. A widower, an assassin, a beautiful woman and a government agent; all are drawn together in a deadly hunt, propelled toward a confrontation with an evil beyond human imagining.

I just got done rereading this book. I do love it! I got more emotional over this book then a lot of his others. The cast of characters are great. I could have done without Vince. I didn't think he was necessary to the story. Before everyone freaks out on me about that thought, remember, it is just an opinion. I thought it was a strong story without him and to me he just seemed out of place to the story. One of my favorite characters in this book is one of the sub-characters, Garisson Dillworth. I just love that man! I would have to give this story a -even with Vince!

I also just reread Watchers. The thing I enjoy about Koontz's books is that he makes you care about the characters. I got real sappy reading the last 20 pages or so. Great story! I didn't think this book was as scary as most of his books, which was fine by me. And, I really cared for The Outsider, not something I can say about most of the baddies in his books!

'Watchers is the first book I read of Dean Koontz. I have collected every one of his book since then. I don't know what I'd do if Koontz stopped publishing. 'Watchers' was definitely the best of em all.

watchers is by far my favorite dean koontz book. it mixes so many great genres together, and it's the only book that has almost made me cry... yes i admit that..

on a side note, have any of you noticed how koontz links his books together? because in seize the night, he talks about the francis project, which is the project that created einstein.... i read that in seize the night and was like "THE FRANCIS PROJECT! WATCHERS! AHH!" i think he does it in a few of his other books also, but that was the one that i remembered

IT WAS ALSO THE FIRST KOONTZ BOOK I READ AT 15 I GOT IT FROM A FRIENDS MUM WHO WAS USING IT TO WEDGE OPEN A DOOR!!!  I GO BACK AND READ THIS EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE I LOVED EINSTEIN COS I FORGET HOW GOOD IT IS, I TOO HAD A TEAR AT THE END BUT GLAD THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT. IT WOULD BE GREAT IF KOONTZ COULD REVISIT THE GANG MAYBE LINK THEM UP WITH CHRISTOPHER SNOW AND CO WHAT A STORY THAT WOULD BE!!

Great book. I might have enjoyed it more than I really would have if I hadn't just read it after reading one of Koontz's worst books. I love Einstein, but Orson is still better. I can see why most people put this in their top 5, because it is in mine. It has a lot of action and a core villian, and also another factor called the Outsider. It is different than I expected, but great nonetheless. I enjoyed reading about every set of characters and how they all effected eachother as well.

I thought this was definatly one of his best! I absolutly loved it! I feel in love with Enstine. I aslo felt sorry for the Outsider. At the end, I just wanted to give him a big hug. He was just so alone. the charecters were wonderful, and the ending was great! I didn't really like Vince, and he just didn't seem to fit. But other than that I give it *****.

Watchers was definitely the most interesting and, overall, best book Koontz has written. Suspenseful, intriguing, and lovable characters, this book exhibits Koontz's ability as an author. Four out of four stars in my books!

just finished re-reading Watchers. this was my first and hook book of DK's. i had forgotten just HOW MUCH i love that dog. shame on me. one thing that really jumped out at me this time through was the way Vince died. He's looking up at Travis (who is on the deck) and says "Look at me! I am your worst nightmare!" and Travis says "Not even close" and blows his head off. i thought that was a great tough-guy ending. i almost cheered for Travis having a good punch line rather than all the cheesy puns you get from the movies in general. any way. this was five stars the first time i read it, and id give it six now if i could.

Good book, hell great book. This is currently my favorite Dean Koontz book. In fact the only bad thing that came out of this book is the movie that is very very loosely based on it. And I mean very loosely. The movie is probably one .01% accurate to the book if even that. The few characters from the book that even made it to the movie are nothing like their book versions. Travis is a teenager and Nora is his mother. Einstein is only called Fur Face (Ok that I can over look) The worst of all. Lem was changed into the villain of the movie. Now I realize that movies take liberties from the books they are based on but in Watchers case I doubt the screen writer even looked at the book. Hell it is just some random 80’s monster flick with a smart dog added in and characters having the same names as the book but being nothing alike.

 

Ok enough ranting about the Movie the book was perfect. Never has a story dragged me in until the end like Watchers has. It is by far my favorite DK book as of yet.

 

Watchers the book four out of four

Watchers the movie –four out of four.

I saw the movie too, when I found it in blockbuster I was so excited to watch it, once I did I wanted to puke. I  also agree that they took the BEST book ever and made the WORST movie ever from it!

Watchers was one of the best books I have ever read. It really makes you think about human nature and emotion. The beast was scary, but at the same time you felt sorry for him/it. The dog...well he was just adorable....of course....as he was made to be.

I can't believe that they haven't made a movie out of this book yet. all these stephen king movies, and some of them aren't even as good as a dean koontz novel. this book is awesome. i've read it twice so far, and many more to come i predict.

This is the only Koontz book I've read where my favorite character is the dog. The plot is superb. I also could have done without Vince, but it still works. I also agree that though The Outside is very creepy at first you fell very sad for him by the end. While it's not one of my favorites it's still of staple in Koontz's novels. I also have to agree that it's one of the worst movies of all time that was taken from a book (Koontz walked out in the middle of its premire). If your looking for more Koontz enspired movies Intensity was okay? and Phantoms was actually pretty good. Stay away from the Demon Seed and Mr. Murder movies.

I agree with the consensus, I have been reading Koontz for about 20 years and only read this one recently. It has skyrocketed to the top of my favorites list. You can't help but want a golden retriever after reading this book. It is Koontz at his very best.

I just recently finished reading Watchers and it was great. I cant beleive I waited so long to read it but I had heard so many good things about it I decided to save it for a while. After reading Koontz's afterword for the book it is obvious that DK himself thinks of Watchers as one of his best novels. I liked all the characters in this one, even Vince. And since I too am a huge fan of old Disney cartoons I thought Einstein and the Outsiders love for them was cool. This was an amazing story of love and loyalty and I highly reccomend those who have not to go ahead and read this book. You wont be disappointed.    !!

Watchers has always been my favorite book. Not just out of Dean Koontz books, but out of all 2,000 or so that I have read. I worked at a book store and alwyas made sure we had at least one copy in stock to recommend to everyone who came in. The story line was amazing and I could relate to a lot of the characters in it. Even einstein and the outsider. Both had trouble comunicating and understanding. I also like that both Travis and Nora had major personality quarks that a lot of people wouldn't understand. But they are drawn together and become a whole, as compared to one taking the other under their wing. Also I trully adore the quote hanging in the vets office. I plan on printing it out and framing it as a tribute to my dog who, though not a golden, reminds me of an odd mix between einstein and the dog from "dark rivers of the heart". can't remember his name off hand.... but all in all, i love it and it is the best ever written. as far as the movie goes, i hate it and would much preffer to think it didn't exist. and i believe koontz would like to believe the same. i could only imagine the insult it is to him.

I liked this book, yet I found he has recycled characters from Fear Nothing & Seize the Night anyone remeber Olson the black lab? Or how about the "Bighead" that they chased through dead town? The only thing don't like is in several of his books he details child molestation and rape. I know he needs to generate suspense and drama, its just that it is a recurring theme in his books. When I see real cases on TV it makes it difficult to then read it for leisure. Anyone else feel that way also?

Theoutsider-- I also have a problem with his books where child molestation or murder is involved. As a mother of 3 young klids, I have a hard time getting these images out of my head after reading his books sometimes. However, I feel DK's writing is so good, he's entitled to include these disturbing details into his plots. Unlike those cheesy TV movies I can't stand...

I just finished this book last night. I loved it! And I have to admit, I felt a little sad for The Outsider, just for what it said at the end. I agree, Vince was a little weird, but I enjoyed reading about his adventure, wondering if he really was immortal! Great book, one of my favorites so far. I'll be starting Odd Thomas today!

Watchers was one of his best books ever. I loved the book from beginning to the end. Its a great read and I highly recommend to any Koontz fan that hasn't already read the book. Also the movie of course stunk, although the movie with Mark Hamill as Travis which I think was Watchers III was as close to the book as they could get but it still wasn't near as good as the book but better then the first movie.

Wow. amazing book.

Einstein is probably my new favorite animal character of all time. I would have been devistated if he died. My only criticism is the anti-climactic way Nasco died after he was built up for so long. I thought it would have been perfect if he had Nora and Travis and pinned down and on the verge of killing them. Then the Outsider erupts from the bushes, sees Nasco first and shreds him to pieces.

I don’t think I’ve ever pitied a character more than the Outsider. What a tragic, terrible life.

Do you guys think that if Travis knew Einstein would be fine, and the Outsider and Travis had the same “conversation” right before he killed him, that Travis may have spared him, or would have killed him solely out of mercy and not revenge?

Great Book.

Oh, and I have a new signature thanks to this book!

I liked that Nasco's death was so anticlimactic. It was fitting in a way. He had such a God complex, convinced he was immortal, I felt it was just what he deserved to have such a common and easy death.

I think that the Outsider was sympathetic, but would Travis have spared him? Not so sure. I mean, even though I understood what had made the creature what it was, ultimately it was a monster, even if it was circumstances that had made it that way. I may understand the reasons a killer becomes a killer, but they are still a killer. Am I making sense?

I think Koontz did a spectacular job of making Einstein a fully realized, three-dimensional character. The premise of the smart dog, while not original necessarily, has the potential to be rather laughable if done inproperly, but Koontz made the character come alive and I totally bought into it.

Get used to anti-climatic endings, David. Koontz loves them. Not that he always does them, but he does them more often than a lot of authors. Like FE, and for the same reasons, I thought it fit well with this one. The only ending that really didn't do it for me in a Koontz book would be the ending to The Mask.

I am 30 yrs old, been reading DK since High School and have read all his books (minus the out of print-hard to find stuff).

WATCHERS is a top 3 Koontz for me. I cried...I admit it. I was 20 or so when I first read this book. I knew Einstein would pull through, but what got me was the Outsider. The way he was when he saw the Disney items in their house, the figurine he held when he died. Man, I got to end this post before I get depressed. Great book though. Top 3 for sure...next to Strangers and Phantoms.

Warning! Spoilers ahead...

Oh my goodness gracious!
I've been reading a book a week by Koontz & I think I may have just read the best one ever!
Up until Watchers, I've been saying that Odd Thomas is my favorite book by Koontz, but now I don't know.
I may have to go back & read OT again to compare them.
There's more humor in OT & I love that it's in the first person (and that cool scene with Odd seeing himself go into that black room...classic!).

So I don't know. It's a close call.

Also, I find it hard to believe that I'll find a book that I like better than Watchers.

Who out there has read Watchers, then found one that's even BETTER?

What a great ending!!
What a freaking awesome book!!!

My list of favorites from what I've read so far:

1-Odd Thomas
2-Watchers (a very very close second!)
3-From The Corner Of His Eye
4-Lightning
5-Brother Odd
6-Odd Hours
7-Forever Odd
8-The Taking

SPOILERS:


I just finished Watchers a few days ago. I agree with some of the other members about the Outsider. I had so much compassion for him that I couldn't get really angry at him. His death depressed me. The detective Lem's POV of the Outsider really affected me along with Travis' experience when he was killed. It was fun reading how Einstein's intelligence was discovered by Vince and Nora. I wish I could've had Vince's POV when he died and realized all that "ssssnapping" up of souls of his victims wasn't going to keep him immortal! I hated Art Streck the TV repairman that stalked Nora. I loved reading about him get his payback. Travis and Nora's relationship was touching. This was my 21st DK book since I started reading him in July of 2008. I read FN and STN in August 2008 so this was fun to see the connection. I want to go back and read about the project mentioned in FN now to refresh my memory. I really get a kick out of those kind of things. I also enjoyed contrasting how DK referenced the title "Watchers" as interpreted from the villian's POV and from Nora's POV. Another excellent book by DK just as I expected. He continues to wow me read after read.

I loved Watchers, thought it was a wonderful accomplishment. I didn't feel quite as much compassion for the Outsider as some, and I hated that scene of Travis and Nora's first sexual experience--I hate most Koontz sex scenes, they scream clinical romance novel--but I still tihnk it's one of his best.

I am glad there are similar opinions as mine for this book.

As for the sex scenes....umm, I don't know. I could do without some of the detail. As I have posted before, VISIONS is almost to the point of being a pornographic novel. Extreme detail that doesn't need to be dragged out through an entire chapter. I won't quote what he says, but it was enough to get me blushing and I got real uncomfortable with the whole thing. It put a cheap cheesy spin on the characters and the story.

I haven't found a better DK than WATCHERS. The combination of characters, including the dog, the struggles, the triumphs, the comedic aspect which is present during the entire book. Not funny haha, but funny feel good.

Servants of Twilight was a cheap adaption badly acted, but I've seen worse.

If you ever have ocassion to watch the TV adaption of Face of Fear, see it. It's one of my favorites.

I've never seen one of Koontz's movies FirTree but I've heard they're not very good from several members and that Koontz himself is very disappointed with what filmmakers did to his books.

I think I might have heard something positive about a made for TV movie about Intensity. I haven't read that book yet.

FirTree, I found that Chris Meeks discussion on the Koontz/King comparisons. It's viewable from a public section of MySpace in a book discussion section but I'm not the smartest person with posting computer links and the link was a mile long! The discussion became very intense too!

The main points had to do with the timing of Koontz becoming famous. I think King's "break through" novel was Carrie and then it became a famous movie. The publishing industry was hot for horror. Koontz had been writing for a long time with many pseudonyms but his breakthrough novel came later with Whispers around 1980. By that time, King was pretty big. Publisher had been pressuring Koontz to put out books in the horror genre and this wasn't what Koontz was strictly about or his preference. It states how he was pressured into Phantoms. Anyway, Koontz didn't want to be limited and defined by that genre but it happened. The debate even brought up the fact that on the bookshelves, Koontz is right there after King. Not a major thing but I can see Meek's point. The discussion was very well detailed and much better than my paraphrasing. I found it very interesting.

I'll skip it.

I haven't read the Phantoms afterword, I'll go check it out at his site in a bit.

I'm inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with dark bound Snow and Odd adventures.

Yeah, I think they were trying to grab the "teen" audience by making Travis a Corey. They tried a few other times, but never did a faithful adaption, which is a shame.

Intensity is a miniseries and not great by any means but it is at least watchable and decent.
