Guardian angels

Book author: Dean Ray Koontz

Rating: 4.9


Lovers of four-footed people will appreciate the novel Guardian Angels. This is a story about a golden retriever dog who escaped from a secret research center, where the animal was endowed with human genes and mastered some features, in particular, developed intelligence. The dog gets to Travis Cornell and Nora Devon, who become true friends of the animal and try to protect it from pursuit – a bloodthirsty creature resembling Frankenstein escaped from the center with the retriever.

'Guardian Angels' is a striking work, here the negative characters cause disgust and contempt, and the positive ones seem very fabulous. The end can also be predictable, but it doesn't make reading any less fun.
