I got nothing much to say besides what a letdown this was. I think that Koontz could have done a better job with this collection if he slowly revealed things about Nameless or showed prior flashes or even explained how he was clairvoyant and had the ability to just say what time he wanted to wake up and woke up. Instead the final reveal was a letdown because you could guess at a good 75 percent of what was coming.

"Memories of Tomorrow" has Nameless once again involved with hunting a man who has

Suspenseful, Slower Cadence Than Usual

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

This last part of the Nameless short series was satisfying as pertinent information was given concerning the main character. His final rescue was a success and another villain was put to rest. I can say I enjoyed this short series and I'm looking forward to reading the full novel next year

Memories of Tomorrow, the sixth and final story in Dean Koontz’s Nameless series, was the shortest and most straightforward mission as Koontz dedicated half the story to finally revealing the back story of the life of Nameless. In the final series, Nameless is sent to Indiana to track down a psychopath named Chilton Cutter who has murdered his wife, kidnapped his step son Jamie and is now hiding in a remote cave. Nameless is directed, as always, by the Ace of Diamonds, whose endless resources ...more

finished yesterday the 22nd of november 2019 good read five stars amazing kindle owned...and looks like there is another coming out 2020, this one is not the last...couple highlights
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.

Decent ending to a very short read. I am glad Amazon is doing these short format series, some can be really hit or miss but for the amount of time you spend on them I find them satisfying. Was able to read this one in under 30 minutes total I think.

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

It's been decades since I've read any Dean Koontz. I think I read "Phantoms", maybe?

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.
Throughout this whole series, with us knowing little to nothing about Nameless' past, I had no idea how Koontz was going to wrap it up. And I have to admit, this ending was good for me. I enjoyed this mini series and it's fun to read with a friend so you can discuss each book after you finish it. I'd recommend it to anyone that likes a good story where the bad guys definitely get whats coming to them!

What a sad, sad ending...! But still, yet another good novel in this series. I truly wish there were more to these novels, or more short stories available.

This last one was truly one of the best and I would love to read more Nameless adventures!! Why do the ones who don’t deserve the guilt they feel always carry it the hardest and those who should feel guilty never do? This was a great short series.

Lots of hints as to MR Nameless identity.

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

This one was more of a 3.5 for me, but I found it moderately enjoyable. Hence the rounding up of stars.

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
This is the last of the short story series "Nameless". I found it to be the best. In the last couple of stories, I have felt a slowly growing sense of sadness, not only in Nameless but in myself too. This sixth story has nameless rescuing a young boy from a psychotic and drug-crazed stepfather. He feels a spark of feeling when the boy runs into his arms. This was a different twist from his other rescues. It triggers memories and feelings that Nameless seems terrified of and he frantically gets ...more

This is the sixth & final Book in the Nameless series. These are novellas, revolving around a man who has no memory beyond 2 years ago, does not know his own name, and is clairvoyant. He dishes out justice to those considered above the law, or the law simply cannot reach. He is not a vigilante, since he works under the direction of a group he only knows as the Ace of Diamonds. They are precise in their knowledge of who they're dealing with & what needs to be done & how to do it. ...more

Having read none of Koontz's books since I always thought they would be "too scary", this collection was a terrible letdown. The writing is clumsy, repetitive, and honestly not what I'd expect from "America's most popular suspense novelist". The premise of a nameless avenger seemed interesting, but the final reveal of the mystery behind Nameless was incredibly anticlimactic and felt like the author just couldn't be bothered to come up with an even half-decent backstory that would make some ...more

Wow. Wow. Wow. I'm touched.

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

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

Ok now this one was a bit odd in that the story seemed pretty much superfluous to the big back story we've been waiting for. Even that sadly was lacking.

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

I enjoyed all the Nameless stories, but especially this one. I found some bits were a bit repetitive since I read the stories one after the other, but I liked the general idea and how it all ended. Nameless is an endearing character, with his own flaws. I loved the descriptions in these stories. Odd Thomas is one of my favourite books by Dean Koontz, along with Life Expectancy. I wouldn't say Nameless is as memorable as those, but it's still a really nice read. It's a well prepared, delicious ...more

Nameless Series

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

Grabbed me by the feels . . . Again

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

I did not find this series to be up to Dean Koontz's usual writing. I found the series a little hard to follow and it was not a page turner for me. The last book Memories of Tomorrow was probably the best one out of the six. I was not spell bound waiting to get to the next book. I think this series was not his best effort and even though I read it I should have not bothered. I got nothing out of it. It was not a book that drug me in and had me wanting more.

what a finale!

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

An adequate but not great end to the Nameless series of short stories. The whole series might have been better as a single full length novel, if the author would/could have done more than add unnecessary filler to make it long enough, but that is exactly what Koontz seems to be doing with his most recent novels...lots of filler, not enough substance. This series of shorts could have been done much like he did with the Odd Thomas books, which were the last novels he wrote that I really liked.

Overall the Nameless series was pretty good. A few ended too quickly without a satisfying reason Nameless solved the issue.
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.

Brilliant series

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!
