MargieD2017 | 276 comments This might be stretching family drama by a tad but it could be argued that one's upbringing can and does impact their adult behavior more than anything else hence family drama is found in 'Our Kind of Cruelty'. Mike's obsession with V is spurred by his need for love and to love. The author's ability to reflect this young man's distorted view of the world and in particular his love focus towards V is both disturbing and intriguing. Many would say that V was the victim and was the innocent, compassionate person in this relationship but there are points of fact that would show her behavior on the edge as well. This dark view of one's mind is revealing as to how perceptions can alter reality in one's own mind as well as others. Whew! Disturbing.
