This is a wonderful book. I liked it much better than Ferris' first, Then We Came to the End. Some say it jumps around too much, but it's about the mind of someone with a mental illness. It makes sense and it's beautifully written.
This is probably the worst audio book I have ever listened to. A rambling tale of, evidently, a mental health issue. I liestend through to the end hoping it would redeem itself, but alas, it was pointless to the end.
I could NOT get into this book, it was all over the place and very confusing. I got to the 3rd CD and could't take it anymore. Hated it!
I can count on my hand the number of times I've utterly disliked a book....this stands out as number one.
Although the plot seemed to have substance, it rambled on and on and.....on with no resolution.
I'm sorry I heard it til the end.
I just finally gave up on this one......on the last disc. Just too depressing and pointless.
I rarely write reviews but this was the worst audio book I've ever listened to - I made it to the end of Disc 5 out of 7 and I could never figure out what was happening! The characters moved in and out and then it became complete nonsense.
The Unnamed is so well written and so utterly absorbing that I couldn't leave it in the car. This audiobook is one of the best I've ever encountered.
Wow. An excellent book. The author reads it, and he does a great job. This book isn't one of those happy ending stories, it is real life. I never felt I could understand mental illness, yet this book somehow gets you to feel how it can be, without actually knowing what it is like. It can be a bit depressing, you feel for the main character and the author gets you to root for him, yet you kind of understand that he won't ever break out.
