About the Author
Nikolas P. Robinson (1978-Present) was born in Saint Paul, MN but spent most of his life in and around Rapid City, SD where he still resides with his children, a beagle, a cat, and two ferrets.
A former musician, some of Nikolas' non-literary artistry can be found with the relatively unknown musical project Alter Noctvm...Alter Idem (roughly translated from Latin into English as Another Night...Another Identity) where he provided vocals, bass, percussion, and some synth/programming.
"A Wreck In Progress: Assorted Poetry" was his first published work, a collection of poetry that he compiled from years of material that he had previously accumulated.
In addition to poetry, he has written a couple of novels (all but one of them, Unspoken, at this time unpublished), a number of short stories, and is currently in the process of further writing as well as again working on music (with an as yet untitled project).

Nathan is an emotional stunted man for various reasons. He doesn't trust himself, so he definitely doesn't trust other people. His life is one of solitude, by choice.
He chooses to be solitary. He chooses to believe no one will love him or ever accept his love. His self-esteem is broken.
He falls in love with a co-worker, but he won't/can't tell her of his feelings.
The world is plagued by a strange sickness that makes everyone disappear within themselves just as he's ready to open up, leaving him in solitude once again.
I wasn't overly impressed with this book, but then I started to think about it more. I couldn't help but realize this would be a good read for someone who is dealing with the care of a loved one who has mental problems, or someone who has low self-esteem. This book could help both in different ways; it truly shows the inner turmoil and pain someone could go through dealing with both. So, while this isn't really a great book for me, I can see how someone else might love it and/or find it insightful.
There are a few mistakes, but nothing major. My biggest annoyance was the constant repetition and inconsistencies.
I wont go into any details, I would rather you enjoy the book for yourself. It does start off slow....meandering...almost like it has no direction. Almost like a love letter that wont stop. I wont say that I skimmed over some parts, but I will say I may not have read ALL the words. LOL.
But it pulls itself back together, picks up the pace and you find yourself staying up late. Trying to finish that last page before you fall asleep. I cared for the protagonist, but as another reviewer said. I really wish there was a bit more detail in the end, and less at the beginning.
I am looking forward to more from Mr. Robinson. Thanks!
