Mehr über den Autor

Dean Koontz glaubte an sich, auch als er noch kein erfolgreicher Schriftsteller war. Aber nicht nur er, auch seine Frau Gerda war von seinem Können überzeugt. Daher bot sie ihm an, für fünf Jahre allein den Unterhalt zu verdienen. Binnen dieser Zeit sollte er mit dem Schreiben ausreichende Einnahmen erzielen können - oder aber seinen Kindheitstraum an den Nagel hängen, so die Vereinbarung. Koontz musste diese Frist aber gar nicht ausschöpfen, der Erfolg kam schneller, und bis heute hat er insgesamt sagenhafte 400 Millionen Exemplare seiner Romane verkauft. Geboren wurde Koontz 1945 in Pennsylvania. Er arbeitete zunächst als Englischlehrer und schrieb nur am Wochenende und in den Abendstunden - bis das Angebot seiner Frau kam. Heute leben die beiden in Kalifornien.

This is Headline's 20th Anniversary Edition. This is the classic novel from the 'master of our darkest dreams...and a literary juggler' - "The Times". Two mutant creatures - both hideously changed from the animals they once were - escape from a secret government. No one who encounters them will ever be the same again, including a lonely widower, a ruthless assassin, a beautiful woman, and a government agent. Drawn together in a deadly hunt, all four are inexorably propelled towards a confrontation with an evil beyond all human imagining. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Reading with breathless excitement 21. Januar 2002
"Watchers" introduced me into the world of Koontz. It is one of the best stories he wrote. The two dark characters, one a human and the other one created by humans, are both terrifying. As the story develops, you start to feel sorry for one of them.
Absolute must for Koontz is to create a balance in the story by adding good characters. Those are a man, a woman and an animal. If you do not like dogs - after reading this story you will. Why? Just read Watchers and dream of possesing Einstein.

5.0 von 5 Sternen IMPRESSIVE 5. Oktober 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Watchers is definitely great. The characters are, as in any Koontz novel, very round and well developed (their backround, their loss and pain) and the language is (once again) excellent. It is incredible how much Koontz can write about an almost "ancient" horror motive: monster is loose, monster kills everything in its way, monster and hero collide. The "monster", the Outsider is a man made killer, created to murder, not a killer by choice. It has a very sensitive side (Mickey Mouse: you will know, when you read the novel), and is not the cheap, flat B-movie antagonist. I've read about 20 Koontz novels, most of them totally enjoyable, but this is definitely one of the best.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I couldn't put it down! 12. Januar 1999
This is by far the BEST Dean Koontz I have read thus far. If you have never read a Dean Koontz novel, I suggest you pick this one up. I guarantee you will be hooked! There were so many various and wonderful characters. I especially loved Einstein. Koontz couldn't have picked a better dog (a golden retriever) for that character (unless of course it were a Black Lab) and it was wonderfully played out! Even the Outsider, though representing evil incarnate, made me feel pity and a certain amount of sadness for it. The best part of the book is, it makes you wonder if Science really has advanced that far and could possibly succeed in making a dog as smart as man. It is definitely worth your time!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dean at his best! 22. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
When I read this book some years ago I considered this to be among his very best work. It starts out simple enough and transforms into a heartpounding immensely enjoyable book. Einstein (the dog) was a creation that I felt deeply for. The main characters gave the story life and you almost could feel the terror they were put into. I felt great sympathy for The Outsider (the beast). I consider this to be the most evilest villian Koontz put on paper and at the sametime felt very sorry for it at the conclusion of the book. All of Koontz's work is brilliant and I am an avid fan because he writes intriguing stories and can entertain me for hours on end and that is what I like most about reading and Dean Koontz has done that like no other!

5.0 von 5 Sternen possibly the best book ever written 10. April 2000
Von Nina
Watchers is a stunning novel of two genetically engineered creatures. One is a sucess, a golden retreiver with human level intelligence. The other, a failure, an ugly creature created with a feirce urge to kill. Known only as the Outsider, the creature hates the dog because represents the goodness and light of genetic engineering, and the Outsider itself represents only darkness and hate. After the dog escapes from Banodyne laboratory, the Outsider follows it out of rage, and will stop at nothing to hunt it down and kill it. Travis and Nora are two people who befriend the dog, and get caught in the middle of this confrontation. The characters sparkle with life, and the writing style makes you feel like you are actually inside the book. You laugh and cry along with the characters, share their joy and sorrow, their excitement and their pain. Like I said before, this is quite possibly the best book ever written, and quite probably the best Dean Koontz has ever written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unstoppable suspense and heartfelt emotion.... 6. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I had never read Koontz before. All I knew was that he enjoyed something of a reputation as a "horror" author. All I knew about this book was that it was vaguely "about a dog". You can get more detail from the synopses and other reviews. All I'll say is that for lack of anything else new to read on a Sunday afternoon I picked this book up from a shelf in the garage, where it had lain ignored since someone whose tastes I don't particularly share had given it to me weeks before. To my delight and wonder, I did not -- COULD not -- put this book down and read it in one sitting through the afternoon and into the evening, oblivious to all else except the wonderful story and characters that were unfolding before my eyes. The best book I've ever read? Who knows. But I got my wife started on it the very next day, and I'll recommend it without reservation to anyone who loves animals, likes people, has a passion for life, and enjoys a rousing good tale.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The ABSOLUTE BEST Dean Koontz novel 1. Januar 2000
Let me start by stating how much I love this book. I would have to go as far as to say that this was the best book that I've ever read. By the time you've finished reading this book, you can't help but love Travis, Nora, and Einstein, or feel at least some compassion for the Outsider. I honestly loved how Koontz started with a bunch of different characters and was then able to bring and tie them all together. When I finished this book, I told a couple of my friends about it, and they both loved it as well. I can't help but rave about this's a classic! I give it two thum...well 5 stars at least
