My favorite Dean Koontz book! I read this in my 20’s and have read many of his books since then, the publishing date is way before 1987, that must be republishing date because I first read this in the late 70’s.
Thank you. This is a lovely story.
Great book, wonderful story
This is the first book I have read by Mr. Koontz, there certainly will be many more. He did a masterful job with the entire book. I could barely put it down. I loved everything about it, particularly Einstein. As a golden retriever lover I really loved it.
