Engine took me back to the movie The Crow (1994) and Mad Max (1979) but there's also a lesser known film called The Wraith (1986) starring Charlie Sheen that's worth mentioning. The Crow features a man bent on revenge. Mad Max is a post apocalyptic action film with awesome car stunts and The Wraith is a revenge film involving a car with a supernatural twist. All those elements were present in Engine but the author really focused on the revenge aspect. There's a lot of gore in this book that will satisfy anyone's blood thirsty revenge fantasy.
I loved this title. If you're in the mood for reading about scumbags getting what's coming to them, then give this shot.
