Description

Nominee for the 2019 Audie Award for Best Male Narrator

A “superior thriller” (Oakland Press) about a man, a dog, and a terrifying threat that could only have come from the imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz - nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

On his thirty-sixth birthday, Travis Cornell hikes into the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains. But his path is soon blocked by a bedraggled Golden Retriever who will let him go no further into the dark woods.

That morning, Travis had been desperate to find some happiness in his lonely, seemingly cursed life. What he finds is a dog of alarming intelligence that soon leads him into a relentless storm of mankind’s darkest creation....

A stunning masterpiece that leaves you with hope.

I don't normally write reviews but this story has left me awestruck. Dean Koontz's greatest work in my opinion. At the end you will be left with a great hope for the world and a realization of the power of connections made with others, be it humans, dogs, or any other form of life capable of love.

Absolutely splendid. A 'tail waging' worthy tale indeed.

In a 2003 interview, DK said, "Watchers is the best book I've ever written...it's my finest hour." And I wholeheartedly agree. Watchers is a true masterpiece of fiction. There's no doubt that this novel will continue to stand the test of time.

Eduardo Ballerini's performance is, quite simply, beautiful. Whether the characters are human, monsters, animals, or NSA agents, the life and depth of emotion he brings out in them is unparalleled.
MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

The Best of Koontz

Koontz is my favorite. I have read many of his works and this is, by far, the best of them. The book is 30 years old, but this is my first introduction to it. The story stands the test of time with themes of love and friendship. On a deeper level, Koontz addresses the morality of genetic testing, the power of the individual versus the government, and the meaning of life. I cried at the end simply because it was over.

Such a wonderful story!

Just a beautiful story of love and loyalty, in all it’s two and four legged varieties. I can see why people say this is Koontz’s best work. Be warned- it’s going to give you major dog fever :)

kept me awake all night,

loved this book to pieces. Will listen to it many more times to come.
At times I am so cynical in regards to our human race, especially when it comes to the cruelty people are capable of inflicting on animals, that it's difficult to believe we might ever rise above some of the more base aspects of our nature. While I was listening to this story, it was as if my heart was being relieved for a time of that knowledge. The novel actually shines as a ray of hope for what we might become.
And, it was just a damn awesome story!
kudos Mr. Koonz

Great book

This book is heartfelt, sweet and smart. The narrator was good but not excellent, thus the 4 star overall rating. If you are a dog lover, this book will enthrall and move you. Enjoy!

A FABULOUS listen!

This was a fantastic book!! I would find excuses to go exercise or take the long way home just to keep listening...Edoardo Ballerini is an excellent narrator! I will look forward to listening to more books narrated by him.

Brilliant

Ich hatte dieses Buch schon vor 25 Jahren auf Englisch gelesen. Und fand es damals schon toll. Allerdings ändert sich ja manchmal der Geschmack und ich hatte auch befürchtet da ich die Geschichte ja schon kenne, die Spannung weg sein würde. Aber all das hat sich nicht bewahrheitet, ich fand die Geschichte erneut richtig toll und es war so spannend, dass ich jede freie Minute genutzt habe um weiter zu hören.
Der Sprecher ist sehr gut zu verstehen und mir hat es auch sehr gut gefallen wie er es vorliest..
Fazit: Tolle, spannende Geschichte für mich perfekt vorgetragen.

Man fiebert mit...

Es wird zwar etwas Gewöhnungsbedürftig schnell gelesen aber trotzdem erschafft E. Ballerini ein spannendes Kopfkino, welches aber auch zum Denken anregt.
Die Geschichte ist einfach aufgebaut, doch gerade dadurch wird es zum spannenden Hörvergnügen.
Im Grunde ist auch klar, wie die Geschichte enden wird aber es hielt für mich persönlich doch noch eine Überraschung bereit.
