    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.

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 murdered his wife and others and kidnapped his stepson. Nameless sets out to save the child. He is also still dealing with memories of someone that he knows had to be important to him and worried that an event he keeps seeing again and again is in the future. Nameless and his whole mission reveal was disappointing. There is some blather about Mexican gangs stealing from pipelines and terrorists and I was just straight baffled. And people going around babbling about Nameless being brave...there's only been one story I think that one had to worry if he was going to get killed, most of this was him just sitting and watching criminals turn on each other and throwing a lot of tip money at people. I still want to understand why he needed to run around with $30,000 when most of his "missions" were at best a day. Also Koontz's gun worship will always be a bit much in his books and this collection as a whole was no better. The writing was choppy and the flow was too. We get a third party to tell Nameless about his past and that was that. I think there were some good ideas here but Koontz dragged things out too long. The ending I think was supposed to evoke feelings of appreciating what is right in front of you, but instead I am ready to move on to my next read and forget about this collection. I do have to say the covers really were good and some of the illustrations in the stories were great.

    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 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 make it easy for the team to track down Cutter, even though local law enforcement has given up and moved on to the next crisis. The justice that is delivered by Nameless is the least exciting and rewarding of the series but this story serves more as a catalyst to force Nameless to face his past and make a decision on how he wants to live his future.I will not spoil any of the plot the leads to our discovery of the history of Nameless. Koontz brings Nameless to the brink through a typical apocalyptic thunder storm with rain driving down in sheets and lighting piercing the skies at a rural truck stop filled with big rigs, heavy equipment and evil. It is vintage Koontz. Finally, our agent of truth, who has been ironically running from the truth of his past, is forced to stop and confront his own truth. It is a satisfying ending and a fitting conclusion to a very well written and unique series. My only regret is that I do not have a nice hard bound copy to stack on my shelf next to the rest of my Koontz editions. Welcome to the future!

    Suspenseful, Slower Cadence Than UsualI'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 Suspenseful, Slower Cadence Than UsualI've never read a Dean Koontz novel I didn't like, and, already, this one proves just as promising.

Then again, I much prefer British voice actors - although I realise that only an American accent is appropriate for the setting. It's just that I've yet to find any American (male, that is) narrators who, in my opinion, can even begin to compete with the Brits. To me most of them sound pretty much alike, and fail to differentiate characters voices very much. Perhaps this is an unfair assessment, but it always seems to hold true. Also, I usually find their voices grating. American female readers do a better job, but for the most part I would rather read than listen to books that don't use a British narrator.

Instead, he is an agent of truth, which can’t be endlessly redefined, which simply is, though often difficult to uncover. His task is to bring the truth to those who live by lies and deception, and deliver unto them the rightful consequences of their deceit.looking forward to #7

    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 Having read none of Koontz's books since I always thought they would be "too scary", this collection was a terrible letdown.

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 logical sense. All the characters are one-dimensional, the technical explanations have the credibility of an episode of NCIS, the suspense is nowhere to be found, and if you read the stories one after another the repetitions are mind-numbingly annoying.With the exception of "The Praying Mantis Bride" (that I actually enjoyed), this whole collection was just barely ok.

    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.

Recommended for anyone wanting a quick read and definitely recommended to anyone that gets these for free on Kindle Unlimited.

    https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres...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 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 I enjoyed all the Nameless stories, but especially this one.

    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.

    A great conclusion to the series. I was a little worried it would deliver, but it certainly did. The final mission is only half of story. The second half is Nameless realizing his memories are returning and wanting to do something about it. I was sorry to see it finished; it happened so fast. I wonder now whether this series might be connected to Koontz's next novel, "Devoted", coming in March 2020.

    This was an overall disappointing series by one of my favorite authors. In "Memories of Tomorrow", at least the "Nameless" saga ended with a revelation of the title character's origin, which was a bit unexpected. Short story writing seems to be out of Dean Koontz's wheelhouse, so perhaps he should stick to novels, in which he can weave his tales in his trademark style of intrigue, suspense, and tantalizing prose.

    Great seriesThese books are individual stories of a man with no name, the stories are very good, however read between the lines, for they are about justice. Whether justice delayed or justice denied, more importantly, what is justice? It all depends on whom you ask and that line keeps moving.The books cover corruption in law officers, a psychopathic killer, a black widow, arsonist and my favorite, taking advantage of the elderly in retirement homes.

    I commented on the first Nameless story that I was reminded of Jack Reacher, which is very good thing in my book. I was reminded less and less of Reacher as I continued through each story, I felg less and less susprnse, and at the end of "Memories Of Tomorrow", my reaction was "This is it?!" Not what I expected from a Koontz project that started so promisingly.

    Great seriesI don't think I've ever disliked a Dean Koontz novel. This series of short stories involving the nameless man were quite enjoyable. Although violent actions occur, the elimination of evil people and the benefits to their victims is satisfying. Good wins out although nameless is troubled, he works for good.

    The story was good, but the end that relieved who nameless is and what's up with him was a bit anti-climactic to me. So I had to knock it a few stars. But just because this story wasn't my fav doesn't mean the series isn't worth a read/listen. The whole series is really fun and interesting and easy to listen too. This volume, especially its end, was just a bit of a miss for me.

    Stunning! The conclusion of this series is stunning, as it's revealed how Nameless came to be a modern vigilante, turning the tables on bad people who believe that they are above the law. He is as he is by his own choice, with his past wiped from his mind, living a nomadic life pursuing evil. This series will stick with me for a long time. Put it on your must read list.
