    One thought on “A Partridge in a Pear Tree”

    1. Holiday-themed noir short story about a reluctant cat burglar with a GCSE in art who is tasked with stealing a Monet painting of a pear tree. As he fantasizes about keeping the painting for himself, he loses sight of the task at hand and entangles himself in some unhappy and unforeseen consequences. Enjoyable short story in MacBride's trademark blend of humor and suspense; I listened to the excellent audiobook narrated by Ian Hanmore.

    2. 2 stelle nel senso "la lettura è stata ok", di certo non si può giudicare una storia in sole 13 pagine.

    3. Typical MacBride but nothing really too special here. Unbelievable short, I literally read it in 5 minutes.

    4. Eine tolle Kurzgeschichte :) Ich hab mich amüsiert. 11 weitere folgen noch :) - und auch hier: ein schottischer Autor
