Memories of Tomorrow
What strange science made Nameless who he is? What catastrophes have been erased from his memories? In the stunning conclusion of this series, the dark past comes flooding back, and Nameless must decide how much he really wants to know.
In Indiana, a murderous psycho has kidnapped his own six-year-old stepson, Jamie, and secreted him away in a subterranean cave. It’s become...more
"Memories of Tomorrow" has Nameless once again involved with hunting a man who has ...more
I've never read a Dean Koontz novel I didn't like, and, already, this one proves just as promising. So far, it doesn't seem to be progressing at the same breakneck speed as many of his other novels, but the seemingly slower pace takes nothing away from the attention grabbing plot. It's definitely another can't-put-it-down story from this true master of suspense. I'm headed immediately to the next installment!
I will say, however, I'm not all that impressed ...more
Ace’s team, Nameless, and whatever organization supports their missions are all working outside the law. Their purpose is moral, their actions justified. However, if they are discovered, they are not going to be treated like high-tech knights-errant engaged in acts of chivalry, but instead like common criminals.
It wraps up the series and answers most questions. Of course it leaves something out there in case Dean Koontz wants to pick up the character and run with it again. I can totally see this becoming another Jane Hawk style book series. Don't know if I ...more
Anyway, I liked the idea of this serial so I started it via Prime Reading, and I ended up just devouring all six of them. I liked some more than others, but I did love the concept and its execution. I was genuinely impressed with the finale and the denouement.
Can't wait for more "Nameless" installments. I think I read in our Sunday paper that he is doing more.
Rated six serial stars for the whole series.
This review is for the Nameless series. I really enjoyed this series of short stories regarding MR. Nameless. There were a lot of hint as to who Mr. Nameless was. It wasn't such a surprise when it was reviled that the mother, daughter and boy was his family before his self imposed amnesia. But given this was a short story series, I understand why there were so many identity hints. I wish Dean Koontz had held off the publishing of short stories with this ...more
Memories of Tomorrow marks the final story in Koontz’s 6 part Nameless series. I found it to be ok, as it’s an easy read and tells a decent story (as all 6 did). It’s just that, as was the case way back in 2013 when I gave up on Koontz, the conclusion felt lackluster...which shouldn’t be a big surprise after the disaster that was the entire Odd Thomas series, or The Darkest Evening of the Year ...more
This review is for the whole series of 6 books. For the moment I am at a loss for words...
The stories in each of these books took me on an exciting, thrilling and scary trip through the consequences of injustices found in the world we live in. And throughout the series there was an overriding story that I didn't understand until the very endorsed Book 6. And then, wow.
I've always loved Dean Koontz' writing but this is one series that has touched as much as my ...more
This is a satisfactory way to bring the Nameless series to a close. This is a much calmer book than the other ones in the series. Nameless deals with his target fairly early on and the rest of the story focuses on him and his search and determination to remember his past. I won’t spoil it, but I was very happy with the way things turned out. Unfortunately, it looks like Koontz doesn’t plan to write a Nameless novel any time soon. I really hope he does ...more
The main tale is over and done with with little conseqience and then we finally see what all the little flashbacks were about and who nameless really is. But again thats pretty much a non starter too.
Overall this series has been entertaining but seriously lacking due to the shortness of the chapters. If fleshed out into a proper novel it may ...more
I am a big fan of Dean Koontz but I have to say I was not real impressed with this series. I do not think it was up to his usual writing. The plot was at times distorted and I got lost a few times reading these. This one Memories of Tomorrow was probably the best of this series. I usually enjoy his books from beginning to end but this one (to me) was just not what I expect from this writer. I was not anticipating and anxious to get to the next book because again to me these were ...more
This latest collection by Mr. Koontz, his "Nameless" series, has served to remind me yet again why he continues to be my very favorite author. The wrap-up of this last installment has brought tears to my eyes. Regardless of the exact nature of the story, each of Dean Koontz's literary works manages to captivate me so completely and just grab me by the feels. I find my life so very enriched by each of Mr. Koontz's novels which I've had the pleasure to read, and ...more
I grew up on a staple diet of Koontz, read everything he wrote as it came out but through the years, for me, nothing came close to his earliest novels. Then comes this in a different format, which I devoured in six emotional sittings and the whole experience transported me back to those early outstanding stories. It's a long time since I had tears at the end of a story, very moving and so well written and engaging. Don't be put off by the serialisation, read them all and you will ...more
I did like the idea of these short stories, and find them much more enjoyable than his last series, The Jane Hawk novels.
I probably would read more of the Nameless series if Koontz wrote them, maybe even an entire novel but I hesitate with that because as I said, some stories struggled with believability.
The Nameless series was perfect for me. Short enough to get through one each night yet as gripping as a full length novel. I really became a fan of Koontz with his Odd series. Great storylines and deep characters. Koontz has a engaging way of blending the natural with the supernatural or spiritual that I thoroughly enjoy. Read this Nameless series - you'll be glad you did!
Dean R. Koontz has also published under the ...more
