Short review: The narrator still sucks, he’s boring and lifeless and only really adds anything when it’s a conversation between two characters or character dialogue.

As for the plot, it was alright, cumpared to the others. I’m seriously over hearing about how nameless is nameless, doesn’t have fingerprints, is nameless, works for a shadow organization, is nameless, and how he doesn’t have a name. Cut the fluff and you have an alright story from a top-tier author who should be held to a higher standard because his name alone will sell books.

If you try to argue that these stories can be listened to out of order, then I’d counter that by saying there’s a sliver of character development that wouldn’t make any sense in that context. 6 1 hour long + short stories should be around the length of a proper novel and therefore shouldn’t be this lacking in content.
