1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nameless (Kindle Edition)
I am a huge crime/thriller fan and bought this (very cheap) offering having read all the glowing reviews. The brevity and poor grammar/spelling of many of the top reviews should have made me suspicious. I am sorry to say that I just couldn't get into the book at all and I persevered for a few days. I found the endless details and back stories really slowed down the plot and I struggled to care about the hero and heroine. The bad guy's ability to be good at everything, despite the most awful childhood, just stretched my disbelief beyond anything I could accept. I accept some descriptions of violence to be a necessary part of this genre, but I felt that there was too much here - and it wasn't relevant or necessary to be so detailed (and boring. Halfway through, I ground to a halt, and went back to the reviews to see if I had missed anything. One of the reviews revealed a massive plot point. I am ashamed to say I was relieved....at last, an excuse to stop reading this awful book. Many people seemed to have enjoyed it and that is fine, but it just wasn't for me.

I couldn't agree more on all the points expressed. I ended up scanning great chunks as I thought,"Oh no, here we go again." Unnecessary repetition of bits of the plot and to cap it all there's a possibility that the revolting character could pop up in another book! Please don't Joe!

Totally agree with the above comments. The worst book I have ever read. Unrealistic and boring. How can someone with such a deprived upbringing turn out to be a genius at everything. Complete trash. I think 1 star is far too generous. I love a GOOD thriller and 'Nameless' is certainly not that. I felt the degree of violence was extreme and seriously wondered about the mind of the author. The level of depravity was excessive.

I agree with the comments above although I did like some aspects of the story the level of violence was completely over the top. Also felt that the ending was very unrealistic.

I totally agree, and I found I couldn't continue reading with so many times of reading " gonna " which was used in every other sentence.
