There seems to be something implied in listings 3.3 and 3.4 that isn't mentioned explicitly in the text and I would like to confirm it.

From the fact that the ReviewList::onMenuItemSelected method creates an intent that is sent back to itself and is, apparently, handled in the ReviewList::onResume method, I assume that the fact that the menu has been shown that the ReviewList has paused activity (or, perhaps, has been paused). Therefore, when the new intent gets routed to the ReviewList Activity it goes through the onResume method.

It wasn't clear from the preceeding discussion that the presence of a menu actually paused the Activity since the menu is (conceptually, at least) a part of the Activity.
