Must read 🏆

An amazing read that is entertaining and perfect for dystopian lovers!

Primitives was a book right in my alley. As a lover of dystopian, it's safe to say that it not only reached my expectations but exceeded them as well.

There are many things that made this story entertaining to me, but first: can I just talk about the interior illustrations for a second? They are GORGEOUS, wow!! I'm so obsessed with them, and just the formatting of it all in general. Props to you, author. This is truly a masterpiece.

Secondly, the dialogue was top-tier. It felt natural, and it fit really well with the characters in the story as well, whom I all loved. The main and side characters were fleshed out and very interesting to read about.

Not only that, I really enjoyed the descriptions, which is not something I see in a book every day. At every point in the story, I knew where the characters were, who they were with, and where they were going, which is very, very important for readers to know at all times.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the author. In the acknowledgements section, he wrote that he had not 1, or 2, or 3 editors, but *4* of them, and it truly shows. I can just tell from this story how talented the author is, and the journey he took to write it as a victim of a chronic illness himself. It's very inspiring to read both his and his characters' story. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the author, and I can only hope to write a book like him one day as well.
