Best part of story, including ending: What I didn't like about this story was that the main character died.

Best scene in story: My favorite part was when he would getaway from the cops in the motorcycle because I like maneuvering in motorcycles.

Opinion about the main character: What I liked most about the main character was that he was willing to do anything to supply for his son.
