    One thought on “Nameless”

    1. This was a pretty good book, although slow to start and a little, hmm It s a sort of magical realism thingy, except that the realism isn t quite real enough the setting seems like it ought to be an explicitly fantasy world, something Olde English y Tolkien y, because it doesn t quite ring true for a small town somewhere outside Chicago I felt like it wanted to be a fairy tale, like it wanted to be, oh, like the town of Wall in Stardust Halloween mythic rituals and traveling Gypsies because real [...]

    2. I ve liked this writer s style for some time, and I generally like all the characters he s created in this story That said, however, what others have said is completely accurate there is very little plot and nothing much really happens Also, the book was marketed as dealing with gay characters, and it was possible to see how the two main characters could have gone down the romance direction, butey didn t There was a minor subplot dealing with a gay relationship, but it was background and had no [...]

    3. Well, I m here for Sam s writing Which is gorgeous as always As for the work itself, it s not really my thing With the mysticism The romance is so understated as to be practically invisible, which is both beautiful and not very satisfying The small town USA setting seems to be kind of desperately repressing the Walmart effect by channeling British archetypes of quaintness and magic I dunno.

    4. It takes time to lay the scene, but the payoff was very much worth it for me.Nameless is a very subtle story, as if Sam were taking out small curiosities that were laboriously put together rather like Lucas preferred method of creation and displaying them for the reader to ruminate on Let s go with the gem analogy he s lighting things up from different directions compared to most books I read, and the reflections and images that result similarly spark things rapid fire in my own mind What makes [...]

    5. Nameless is not your typical amateur novel It begins as an odd little slice of life tale set in the rural Midwest as we follow Christopher around the landmarks of his small town, slowly learning about the townspeople and their quirks Eventually it shows its hand and tips slightly into fantasy realism, but in a satisfyingly quiet, non flashy Midwestern way the possibly magical bits are there, but left up in the air for interpretation.From another angle, you might consider it an exercise in scene [...]

    6. When I bought this book, I confess, I didn t expect much I had read some beautiful fanfictions by the author and I decided to give a go at his original writing I wasn t prepared to love Nameless so much.And it s not because of Christopher, the main character, that is a witty and nice young man who owns a book shop Nor for Lucas, the new guy in town, who is so shy and insicure, but so creative in making beautiful masks You will love them, of course, and enjoy their friendship forms and grows You [...]

    7. This book was recommended to me by Adam and normally we do not have the same taste in most things but because he thought I would like it I decided to take a look at it The book itself is very interesting, It has very little to no plot at all and its basically all about character development At first I thought a book with no plot would really bore me but soon I could not stop reading it because I wanted to see how certain characters and their relationships would pan out Sadly for me towards the e [...]

    8. i came across this book by mistake, and thought that it s going to be just another book, one that i will probably not finish well, i was SO wrong this is a story about a small town, about a man who owns a bookstore and uses he s beautiful voice to tell us this story at the beginning i thought that it s going to be a story about love between two men well, it is, in a way but not in the predictable way this is mostly about friendship, deep friendship no love scenes, no sex the characters in this b [...]

    9. I enjoy the author s other work, so I was excited to read his first book I was surprised to find it slow and boring.A few years back, Christopher Dusk moved from Chicago to a little town named Low Ferry He sets himself up with a bookshop and settles down to a quiet life Then a shy young man named Lucas turns up, asking for a special book about masks and nothing happens Nothing ever, ever happens The entire book is basically Christopher walking into the diner, everyone greets him, walking back to [...]

    10. A friend of mine is friends with the author, which is how I came to have this book recommended to me My main criticism is that the author seemed determined that any conflict be resolved immediately everybody gets along with everybody else, nobody stays angry even when they have the right to hold a grudge, and any developments that might lead to real conflict or tension are quickly addressed and defused before they can threaten the permanent austerity of the story s Arcadian little town It was as [...]

    11. Oh, this was pretty It isn t perfect its pacing is slow and at times non existent But it s so pretty.As usual I m disappointed with the barely thereness of the romantic plot I actually feel like it would have been a stronger ending without any kissing Or if the romance had had weight earlier And this time I m side eying the Miraculous Healing scene I feel like it would have held enough weight if Lukas had merely Magically Fixed the problem in the moment, not the problem for good I mean, people [...]

    12. This is easily one of the most beautiful and simplistic novels I have ever read This story is about a deep friendship, a dog, and a rural town that brings them all together Everything about this book is so raw, touching and the descriptions really carry you away into this very pastoral environment The characters in this novel felt so real, and I can t say I ve encountered such a story where everything just came together so gently This is one of those books that sucks you simply because its a cha [...]

    13. Just finished my first reread of Nameless since I read it initially after it s release I d forgotten, somehow, how powerfully moving and astounding it is, and I treasured this read than words can express.Everything in Nameless blows me away, from it s small world of lovingly textured characters, to its gentle but compelling pace through the narrator s discoveries, to the delicate, convincing touches of magic that have me looking a little too hard at masks I see I feel like the world is a little [...]

    14. This was a work of genre fiction that couldn t decide which genre it belonged to Part fantasy, part small town tale, part romance, part friendship storyI m not sure that it was consistent enough to do all or any one of those things really well It s a first novel, though, and Sam s a generally good writer, so I would definitely read a second effort.

    15. 11 Vanyels I actually like all the characters 10 Moonwinds Beautiful story, great plot and subplots 10 Stendels If it s apparently permanent position as purse book continues this may also reach 11.75 LHMs I always finish the book feeling happy and uplifted0 Leareths positive influence

    16. I thought the characters were interesting and the writing well done Nonetheless, not a whole heck of a lot happens, and Christopher is just too perfect for his own good.Also, those people didn t sound like they were from a small town in Illinois More like Kent Just saying.
