It was pretty good

If you are a fan of Nameless then you will enjoy this installment. I’m not entirely engrossed in the second series. While they are good, they just haven’t grabbed my attention. I find myself losing concentration.

Enjoyable

I don't think that there has been a Dean Koontz book that I didn't enjoy. Keep them coming!

Nameless Book 2

Another fantastic story in the Nameless franchise. This time Nameless uses the name Keyser Soze from the Usual Suspects fame. This time Nameless goes after a twisted Doctor who thinks he is killing people compassionately . Great characters and storyline. Again Edoardo Ballerini does a master full job of narrating.

more of a narration of unimpressive actions

unbelievably boring with infinite details of no import. Disappointing for a Nameless book. Unimpressive in every way.

Bleh

I didn't enjoy this story nearly as much as the others. The villain/antagonist wasn't all that relatable. He was a nutter. Onto the next story!

Disappointed

I've read many Dean Koontz stories and several of his Series starring this main character, Nameless. I've enjoyed several of them in the past and even those not my favorite still were adequate to receive a 3 star rating. This felt like a filler book. A "need to meet a dead line" & get out another book. It was short, no suspense, boring from start to finish, no twists, no nothing. It was a waste of time. 2 stars is generous. The only part I did enjoy was the very first chapter with all the detail and descriptive medical knowledge and the names of the 3 assistants. 😋 This chapter showed a lot of thought as well as promise and I was looking forward to an outstanding novel. Sadly it went downhill from there.

Tense, and Dark

This story was very creative and creepy. The evil character was chilling. The resolution was creative. I felt that some of it was violent, but it fit into the story. These Nameless stories are all thought provoking.

Wow, scary in its simplicity

These stories in the Nameless series are always amazing to read, this one was sooo scary in its coldness. For me, the best chapter was the last one, which pertains to Nameless himself; it's so realistically ominous to the current political climate that it's scary as, well you know.

Good, but borrows from the past

A good installment of the Nameless series, but there are some parts that recall earlier works, such as The Bad Place and especially the antagonist from Dark Rivers of the Heart. Overall an enjoyable read.

Great story

This was a great story and the narration was wonderful, both as usual.

But Mr. Ballerini, for the love of all things beautiful: Ouachita is pronounced like “wash it all” without the L’s. Say it fast and drop the L’s and you’ll have it. Almost like a round “ah” sound at the end. It’s hard to explain, but it’s definitely not “wa-cheetah” ;)
