Summary
Winner of the 2019 Audie Award for Best Male Narrator with an afterword read by the author

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...

Being my first Dean Koontz book I wasn’t sure what I was in for. Pleasantly surprised. The book was an easy listen and similar to many Authors the best was saved till last. I will stress it was an easy listen with very little rambling scenarios needed to fall into place as book progressed. A simple but hang on to your seat narrative. Einstein, a dog you fall in love with.But none the less a story with a great adventure.

The narrator didn't create distinguished character identities, because of this it was unremarkable listening.

A solid book by a great writer. I just read a book he wrote 30 years later and he has gotten better and lazier. Either way, a lot of fun.

I found this book interesting and a bit different from the usual thriller/horror genre. It started off well but then I found it a bit slow going until about halfway through when it picked up the pace again. It was an ok read but the ending was predictable I thought.

Dean Koontz is like Stephen King except, Koontz writes as if you can actually picture it really happening!! I grew up on Orange County Ca and most early books were written about the area making it riveting! A GREAT author!

Way too violent for my taste. The graphic descriptions of brutality and torture were so alarming to me that I couldn't get past the first few chapters. The narration was fine, but unlike other narrators this particular narrator didn't attempt to modulate his voice to assume the personality of each character.

Took about an hour to really get into the book just frofrom a personal preference perspective. However it was really an engaging read through the rest of the book. Wasn't entirely in love with the narrator it almost sounded like it was on 1.25 speed, but it wasn't.

I loved the book. At first I found the narrator a little bit irritating because I not a native English speaker and he is speaking rather fast at times, but then I started to enjoy it. It is really great how he changes the reading rhythm as the action is more alert... The story itself is very good too...

Wonderful book. I was so emotionally invested in that darn dog that I can't help but gravitate towards Golden Retrievers now.

Absolutely loved this book. Read it years ago, then listened to the audio version. I wanted to remember it was as good as originally thought, it was.
