- Paul

Foster makes good memories - this is one of them

Would you listen to Hitman again? Why?

I never say never.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Foster. He keeps it moving - boom boom boom boom.

Which scene was your favorite?

Pavarotti taking David on the elevator.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Kevin's story.

Any additional comments?

The communication is so clean and crisp. Not weighed with murky attitudes and sniffy emotion. Not the usual shame blame and regret memoir. More of a "woo hoo hoo" memoir. Uplifting. Very upbeat, high energy. Promising. I don't believe he is "claustrophobic" . I believe he is a very big being that needs more space than other people. Foster is probably aware on some level that he doesn't really fit in an elevator.
