I remember reading this frequently when I was a kid, getting a vicarious thrill out of the gore and violence. Very enjoyable.

I was just browsing at a used bookstore when I luckily came across it. Hadn't read it in over 10 years and it still stands up wonderfully today.

Thanks a lot. I pondered over whether the cinema world is poorer because Foster hasn't written any screenplays, but he's so great at prose and descriptions that I can't really see how those could be aptly communicated on the silver screen.
