A short, but well-paced and compelling exploration of the themes of unrequited love and the insanity that accompanies it in the midst of a world sliding into madness. A story of love, regret, and the end of the world expressed with a poetic voice; it could be described as being a combination between George A.

Unspoken will have you begging the question "When did I end up liking this guy?" as this harrowing tale of love and loss comes to an end. Not often do I read on if I happen across an annoying, insipid main character. I delete the book, or give it away as soon as possible. The gradual change of Nathan from someone you wished bad things upon, to the Nathan you wished better things on is surprising. I always hope for a method to someone's madness, and it definitely pays off in Unspoken. It is a qui...more

Sometimes people get trapped within themselves, not because they’re sick, but because they’re scared. Nikolas Robinson shows us what this can be like… The mind is only as strong or as weak as we let it be, until it’s gone and it’s too late to even hope anymore.

I was loaned this novel by a friend, and had no idea what the story was about before I started to read. As I began the journey, the narrative seemed a bit repetitive and annoying. At least, in regards to the way the main character felt about his view of the world.

This was commented upon in a previous review by Mr. Robinson when he said: "There was a purpose behind the repetitive nature of the first half of the novel...not so much to hammer home how the character felt...but to develop him into so...more

Being my first complete novel, I am rather fond of it...imperfect and flawed as it might be. It does what I wanted it to do, providing the reader with a protagonist who irritates and annoys them at first, but who gradually becomes something more, and before they know it, he is the focus of sympathy and concern.
I would love to hear what the readers think, as long as they make it through the first quarter of the book, I don't believe they will be at all disappointed...go ahead and try to prove me...more

What are you looking for here? Does anything that I could tell you about myself really tell you anything worth knowing? Does 'Who I am' even really matter?
I was born...of man and woman...I have lived and bred in turn...someday I will die. My epitaph shall read simply, "I did exist, and no one noticed."
