Oct 26, 2011

it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery-thrillers
Read from October 26 to 27, 2011

Unputdownable, with surprisingly deep characterization, and a super-smart dog that runs around adorably.

+ a nightmarish monster that escapes a laboratory and starts munching on the peaceful population of modern suburbia.

An immaculate mix of horror, romance, and action.

Mauoijenn ~ *Mouthy Jenn* ~ This is one of my favorite books of all time!!! :) I wish I had a dog like that.

Simeon It really was unexpectedly awesome.

Sharon Added to my list. Seen this one in the compound library but I don't normally read books with dogs as a rule but after reading Patrick Ness and your review I think I'll give it a go.

Ian (first person omniscient) Made me go back and be more generous with my own rating. I remember liking Watchers quite a lot but I think because I read it so young I let some of Mr. Koontz's lesser works colour my perception of it a bit after the fact... and the movie didn't do it many favors either ~.o

Simeon Yeah, it's delightful. Took just over one-sitting to read, and I loved the main characters, especially the furry-faced dog. It's nothing literary or anything, but genuinely enjoyable.

Tina I love 80s Dean Koontz! So much better than his new stuff.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I love this book. I want a big Golden Retriever named Eintein myself!

Apatt In the 80 s he was firing from all cylinders, this one, Twilight Eyes, Phantoms etc. are brilliant. His books since the new millennium are not so hot.
