Reservoir Dogs on the Road,
This review is from: Sawbones (Most Wanted) (Paperback)Firstly, this must not be taken too seriously or you won't enjoy it. I enjoyed it.
It has all the hallmarks of classic MacBride with his dark humour complimenting the nice'n'shocking depravation, gore and mutilation all quite colourfully described.
There's nothing wrong from departing from a successful theme for as much as I enjoy them, I would not want him to resent having to churn out Logan books along the same formula for ever and ever... I'm sure I'm not alone here.
It did give me Tarantino flashbacks though and I am loath to give more than three stars for what was essentially a short story, also not reflected in the price.
Thus, I would recommend the next departure from Aberdeen to be a collection of short stories that would serve to get things off his chest while ensuring fans get value for money.

Sawbones was written for Barrington Stoke's 'Most Wanted' series of books, designed for reluctant and emerging readers. As such it is considerably shorter than any of MacBride's other works at only 18,500 words.
