Each story presents its own unique characters with its own unique blend of circumstances, and yet the uniformity in them in shocking. The author has a clear style that is shocking in its honesty, while not taking away from the merit of the prose. Both stories, while totally different, give a brief glimpse into the world of characters to whom the world seems to have taken a disliking. Both stories, along with the author's other published story, show the injustices of life through the eyes of a character that is relatable despite the unrelatability (hopefully) of their situation. A shockingly good read!!

I find it hard to write the very beginning of a story. It's a struggle to engage the interest of the reader without giving too much away. In "Victory", the beginning is vague and you're not quite sure where the story is going to take you. Unfortunately, impatient readers might be put off by not immediately having a bearing on what the story is about. However, I promise that if you read on, you will delve into a new world and thirst to know more about the characters. "Ignorant" was filled with amazing vivid descriptions. Primak lays out the initial structure and details of the world, but still allows us to fill in the rest with our imagination. The images from this story will probably shock me every time I read it. Overall, I loved these short stories mainly because they don't "end". I like it when I am left to muse about what possibly happened after...it makes each reading a new experience. Primak is an amazing writer and I look forward to reading more!
