There are parts of it where … at the end, I just said, “What? Wait a minute?” But I don’t want to get into that because it’ll spoil the story for you. This man, the main character in the book, goes to the past, and his friend wants to him to keep JFK from being assassinated. And so he goes to the past through this portal in the guy’s diner and he keeps running into this guy called the Yellow Card Man, except his card color keeps changing, but the book is a real page-turner and gives a lot of food for thought about things like fate and how sometimes bad things happen and can we really change things and the nature of reality all sorts of stuff like that.
But that Yellow Card Man, well, I’ll let you decide for yourself whether such a person is possible. Some of the explanations at the end made me kind of go, “Hmmm …” That’s all. There’s so much in here, so much research went into this book that I’m thoroughly in awe that Stephen King did it and that he told such a compelling story that, honestly, despite all the things that I scratched my head over, I just said, “Wow! That was fantastic.” But I would so love to know if anybody else out there had the same experience I did in terms of that Yellow Card Man and the kind of person he represents or being … whatever you want to call it. And what about all the times Al went there and bought beef?
Okay, that’s all I’m gonna say. That’s it. I really did love this book. So despite whatever else I say about the Yellow Card Man or whoever, it just grabs you by the throat, and it just keeps pulling you in and kept me up late reading it, that’s for sure. So that is all and I’ll talk to you later.
