The Daily Prompt is this: Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?
I am slightly obsessed when it comes to Dean Koontz. I have read all of his books at least once, most likely twice. He wrote a book in 2003 called Watchers that detailed the escape of two laboratory animals that had an indescribable connection to each other. One of the experimental animals was a horrendously disfigured failure of a creation and the other was a beautiful Golden Retriever. Both of these genetically altered animals were blessed with the intelligence and reasoning ability of a human. Only one was loved and doted on for his success and the other hated him for it and wanted nothing but to kill the dog.
Watchers is a strange premise for a story, but the relationship Travis has with his dog is remarkably touching. I can honestly say that I have read it at least 10 times and it still instills the same emotion when I read it. It was the first book I chose to read when my mom went into the hospital.
The emotion and companionship described in the book between a human and his dog pulls at my heart-strings every time I read it and it makes me hug my dog a little tighter. I only wish she could answer my questions with scrabble tiles as well!!
