I was expecting a dog, a good guy and a bad guy. I got all 3, but in spite of that, I liked this short story.
The above is the reason I quit reading Koontz in the first place. It seemed to me that all of his books were the same. After WATCHERS and a few other Koontz books made me fall quickly in love with him, the re-use of that same formula over and over again made me fall out of love with him just as quickly.
I like the mystery surrounding Nameless, and I'm in to see what happens next.
