I know this is an unpopular opinion and I am SO sorry! I just went back & forth with this one. I wanted more of Einstein and The Outsider. The end was honestly so good. I really did love Einstein so much. I just didn‘t need to be hammered with all that detail and I could‘ve used less Travis/Nora. (Again, I‘m not big on romance.) So I‘m just not sure how I felt about this. I didn‘t love it, but I didn‘t hate it either. #PBSGreatAmericanRead

Karkar I think this is a great drawing of The Outsider. 10mo
AshleyHoss820 @Karkar Yes, it is! I loved Einstein and the Outsider plot was so interesting! ☺️ 10mo

For the first half or so, I thought this might be a 5-star audiobook. This is a fun listen: exciting, original and engrossing; the writing is good, and the monster is terrifying. It‘s pretty dated, with far too much time spent on distemper.

Do you know that thing that happens when some male authors try to write female characters well and they end up being perhaps unintentionally sexist and eyeroll-inducing? This book has that thing.😬

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

valeriegeary 🤦🏼‍♀️ Oh man. Or should I say.... Oh men. 2y
Chrissyreadit I love Dean Koontz, he‘s been writing a long time! I read this years ago. Back in the day when we were expected to excuse men instead of hold them accountable 🤣 2y
sprainedbrain @Chrissyreadit this is only my second Koontz, believe it or not, but I have enjoyed them both! I do excuse it, mainly because it‘s as old as it is, like I excuse some of my man Stephen King‘s older stuff. 😂 (edited) 2y

This is truly a story that stands the test of time. Einstein‘s tale is a riveting thriller with many twists and turns, that keep the reader on the edge of their seat throughout. It‘s been many years since I have read a Dean Koontz book and I am so glad I chose this one.

“Except for the head, there were no signs of violence in the kitchen. Of course, the head was bad enough. It was in the center of the table. On a plate.”

Got to the “A reread of a favorite book” category in the 2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge so I‘m reading one of my personal favorites. Tonight I got to my favorite excerpt (dark I know, but it‘s just so well written and perfectly placed within the story to increase the intensity).

Another #GreatAmericanRead book read, and as generally is the case with the books on this list, I really liked it! I can imagine this would make a great movie. Lots of action and adventure, with even some romance thrown in.

A quote from another review sums it up quite nicely:

"Cross Lassie with E.T., add a touch of The Wolfen and a dash of The Godfather, and you get a sense of some of the ingredients in this supernatural thriller."

inthegreensandblues I would like to reread this. It's been 20+ years but I remember loving it! I was a huge Koontz fan in my teens. 3y

Okay #groupv #LMPBC (which I had definitively said I could not do this round 😳🤭)... here are my thoughts on a #creaturefeature at this time... I looked most of these up! I only own 1 of them, but I‘ve read none. 😁

Let me know thoughts!!

BethM @Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon I guess I‘m in 😂I didn‘t think I could be because you all had 4. Can you give me a run down of what to do? Just pick books I have but haven‘t read that fit the theme and then we vote? 4y
Avanders @BethM @MaleficentBookDragon @TK421 @Bklover I don‘t think 5 is much different than 4, and I‘m down with a 5th! I assume Nathan and Missy are cool too?? Plus, that would take us into the cooler months, and it‘ll be fun to be reading these then! And yes, Beth, were just posting ideas now. I‘m not sure if we vote or if we just each pick our book based on whatever comments we get? It‘s up to you all! I‘m cool w whatever. 👏🏽👏🏽 4y

Avanders @BethM hmm 🤔 I don‘t know about vampires 🤷🏽‍♀️ but I think werewolves count! I had to do some “research” too 😁😁 4y
MaleficentBookDragon @BethM werewolves ALWAYS count! I was thinking about The Howling myself. 4y
MaleficentBookDragon @TK421 Is that a book they based The Quiet Place on? It sounds good. 4y

Continuing the 80s theme.....loved this book and author. But stopped reading him not long after this one as they became a bit ‘samey‘. Any comments on his more recent stuff - worth a read?

Cinfhen He was REALLY a 70s /80s master!! It‘s amazing he‘s still knocking out books 4y
Caroline2 Yes!! I used to read his books too (many moons ago!) and I stopped reading cause they felt samey! I wonder if his new books are any good? 🤔 I used to love him!!! 4y

LonelyReader I recently bought this book from Amazon after reading 'The Door To December' which I mostly enjoyed except for a somewhat tepid and unconvincing ending. I am yet to read it so can't really say if Dean Koontz books are repetitive or not. I hope I enjoy it more than I did TDTD. 4y

Started this book 2 weeks ago and still only on page 61. Is it the book? Is it me? Is it life getting in the way? I'm not sure. I've just been having a hard time settling into it and becoming invested in the story. If I can't get into the groove today, I think I'm going to have to bail.

This took me an unusually long time to read. Not because it wasn‘t good, but because life got in the way. I read this for the #greatamericanread and I‘m so glad I did. I‘ve read one other Koontz and it was good, but this was better. Dog lovers, pick this one up if you haven‘t already. Also, it was surprisingly thought-provoking, I thought. #garbingo #gar #pbs

Great story telling and great story. Koontz's writing style keeps you captivated throughout the story and wanting to read more and more. It's hard to put his books down. Although the ending was predictable, it was still very well written and fun to read. I definitely recommend this book!

Booksbooksbooks Any other dean koontz novels you loved? I‘ve only read a few and some of them were meh lol 5y
BeansPage @Booksbooksbooks not yet, this one was my first. But I have a few others I'll write reviews for when I get to them. 5y
KathyWheeler The Watchers is one of my favorites. Others are Twilight Eyes, Dark Rivers of the Heart, the Odd Thomas series, and From the Corner of His Eye (best villain Koontz has ever written). He is often meh, but when he‘s good, he can be really good. I heard the Frankenstein series was good but I haven‘t read it. 5y

Ricochet Joe, a Kindle Short, by Dean Koontz. It's a Kindle in Motion as well. This illustration has straw movement (and a cameo by Diane Lane, apparently).

My second Kindle in Motion. The first being a Kindle Unlimited bail by Patricia Cornwell. I have nothing against KiM; it's an addition akin to vibrating seats in a theater.

ElizaTodd @Josie I will definitely add that one to my stack! I just always hear such good things about his books! 6y
Josie @ElizaTodd they are usually very good! Just don't read them back to back. He has a similar formula in his stories, so it's easy to get burnt out on him. I've done it multiple times lol 6y

#17booklove Day 5: Fiction Love. I decided to interpret today's theme as "love within a fiction book"; and since fur baby love is better than human love I chose Watchers! There is a relationship between the main character Travis, and a mysteriously smart golden retriever, Einstein. There is human love in this, but it's nowhere near as endearing as the love between a man and his dog.

I remember reading this when it first came out. One of those few books that I still feel like ... like I can feel the ripples of. In me. Like, I would have gone on to be somebody else, without this one. So cool to find a little library hardback of it at Goodwill. I have good will about this book. Maybe need to read it again, even. I read a waist-high stack of Koontz, looking for a repeat of this experience, too.

Smlnbooks My favorite Koontz! I keep reading his books, hoping to find another that I like as much but nothing beats Watchers! 6y
AlanBaxter Definitely a seminal book in my life too. 6y
