About Robert Friedrich

Robert Friedrich, originally born in Slovakia, started his writing career in Egypt, where he has been living since his 13th Birthday. He always had a vivid imagination, but the courage to show it to the world came much later. It was't easy, and took some pain, guts and ton of misfortune to arrive to this point. After a time of aversion and a path of unexpected circumstances he harnessed everything within him and stepped up to do things which he really wanted, liked and enjoyed.

He is writing in a different range of formats, from lyrics, flash stories, and short stories and Novellas. Even though the horror genre, which is about the long lasting fight between good and evil, Robert took it to an entirely new level. Adding many psychological characteristics, open ends, confusing twists and new settings. All of which slowly developed as a new paradigm Sci-fi/Horror/Drama; enclosing also urgent issues and happenings within the life of individuals as well as humankind.
His approach can surely change the perspective of readers, not only widen but also illuminate the possibilities and ways. Illuminate them with Darkness unlike found in any other Fiction genre.

Besides writing, Robert also enjoys metal music, movies, and games. He builds his encyclopedic information bank in this reference and uses his experiences from a wide range of activities which he had to go through; multicultural behavior, stress control, diving, translations, marketing, hotel management etc. Robert also creates his own covers and trailers. He speaks English, German and a bit of Arabic, besides his native language Slovak.

I would like all who are reading this reviews imagine a situation: You are a personal guide for the people who are going to jump from plane. You are doing everything in your possibility to help and prepare them well. Even if you wrote everything which is due to your long experience important and gave everyone those notes by their arrival. You just gave them the best from you. What happened? One of the future jumpers after reading your notes came to you with very angry face complaining very seriously that your notes have so many errors. The first thing what you do is to reject him from the jump. Of course the person who is paying attention to the writing errors when his life is in stake didn’t get the point and cannot appreciate your willingness to help and cannot be concentrated on his own safety.
The situation described above is from my own experience. When I read reviews not only for this author here but also for others on Smashwords who published more than one book and get this kind of review I immediately remembered it. And I’m sure that this kind of reviews can discourage everyone a lot.
I would like to propose some kind of agreement between all people who are in some way connected to this beautiful “business” of writing. Let’s say openly almost all who are here more than once are writers. Those who are reading our works and are not able to follow meaning behind the words just let it be. Generally, people who cannot say anything negative about the work, using the criticism of typos, proofreading’s and etc. It is their way how to say that the works is so awesome but they cannot stand it.
I’m sure that all who placed their own names on the first page of the published book paid a great attention to all details and read their work several times, weighted every single word and gave their best to polish it to brilliance. I think it is just impolite to smash their effort by review which doesn’t say anything reasonable just criticize the typos, grammar and editing.
As adult and matured people, if we are undergoing an internal struggle to criticize or not, let’s stick to the matter of the issue – meaning, originality, style, easiness and speed to read and enjoyment which it brings. And avoid so poor criticism about the typos.
The greatest talent is when wonderful stuff is expressed with minimum words. And as I see this author writing short stories, they have great speed and I can imagine them in my inner cinema. An exalting and uplifting 1, 5 hour movie can be very easily filmed from every one of those short stories. I’m very pleased.

Following an interesting review format I found a reader post for a book, here's my review:
>>First, an appealing cover.
>>A quick read
>>Quite visual
>>action all through
>>Has no brevity. I know I said it was a quick read but there were so many unnecessary words that hindered its flow, which leads me to the next point.
>>Unnecessary adjectives, adverbs and poor use of similes
>>Punctuation errors, spelling errors (thou, instead of though, etc) and grammar errors.
>>Needs proofreading, editing.
>>The writer tends to drift between past and present tenses in the narration rather than write in the present.
All things said, it made a good read, and it makes me look forward to future works. Well done. And yes, readers, you'll like and enjoy it.

This was a fun story with a great cover (because I do judge ebooks by their covers). There were a few typos, but they didn't distract from the story. You're left with a few questions after finishing the tale, reinforcing the fact that the main character is delirious and confused in his murky and violent surroundings.

I found this short book interesting, dark toned yet not to the point of overly dark. I enjoyed more than I first believed I would.
The story is well structured and the Author seems to know his charactors well. I do think it could have been a little longer, but that is just me. Really enjoyable at any lenght.
