Tarrintino's first screenplay may come as a shock for those who are unaware of his work and this book is no exception.It's fast and slick with Tarrintino personifying a humorous and cleverly realistic dialogue which keeps the book constantly moving.The plot revolves around a gang of thieves thrust into confusion as their heist goes dramaticly wrong.For the most part this book is set in a warehouse with the gang crumbling apart as every new situation brings a new problem,anger flares between them and they turn against each other.Much has been said about Tarrintino's use of violence and although the violence is never to far away it's the clever use of his characters that gives this book the edge over other so called 'crime novels'.

When Reservoir Dogs first came out, it was hailed by the critics as being a milestone in film production. And they were right. RD has all the elements of a good film; comedy, intelligent plot, groovy weapons and class acting. In a nut shell; buy this book!!
