My daughter is getting it for me. I'll have it in my greedy little hands on Christmas morning. Since I've read every Koontz book there is I'm sure I'll love this one. I can't wait. I loved Watchers so this one will probably be on my top 10 Koontz books since they both have golden retrievers in them. We lost our golden this past July.

I just finished it.  It is kind of weird but no more than normal.  I thought it was a really good book.

Do dogs figure prominently in the story?  I saw the book for 40% off at Barnes and Noble today and was tempted.  I haven't read Dean Koontz regularly for many years, but I did enjoy one of his books in the past that had a dog.... if I recall correctly, the dog could communicate by typing or talking.  I can't remember the title though.

The Title was Watchers. Wonderful book. Darkest Evening of the Year is about a woman who does rescue work and has a golden. How many day till Christmas???

I have it, but I need the weather to be a little colder before I start it.  It just seems like a cold weather book to me, and it was in the 70's here today!
