If you had the chance to change history, would you?
Would the consequesnces be worth it?
The Book so far – Sadie has the first visit to the hospital, and all goes will even if one of the teachers try to make Jake and Sadie life hell. Jake needs a bit more money so lays down a bet on a fight so he can help Sadie they talk With the eventual conclusion that Jake tell the whole truth about why he’s here and John F Kennedy.
They go to the fight and a fighter Jake has bet on wins, so he goes to collect his money the problem is that he’s followed around Dallas by the gentleman who he placed the bet with at the very beginning in fact his boss has completely gone insane trying to track him down and he gets beaten up.
And now the continuation. (there is only one section for this chapter)
Jake is taken to hospital and for seven weeks his Conditions from critical too serious and then back to Critical again, as the doctors set about Trying to put him back together using all knowledge they have. in the end just about saving his life.
With the beating, the The medical procedures and the drugs the doctors have been pumping into him Jake’s mind begins to play tricks he can’t remember Sadie’s name and has a panic attack and several unfortunate incidents. And begins the long road to recovery.
In fact his mind is in total free fall, driven but something he tries to tell Sadie and the rest of the world about Kennedy and is Haunted by the yellow card man. He slowly slowly Remembers who he is and one night tell Sadie about Frank Dunning.
The bottom line is that Jake Just about knows who he is but doesn’t remember who’s going to assassinate Kennedy so Sadie and.Deke and help him remember as Jake fights the yellow card man in his head with Al by his side
Sadie has the idea that could go for a drive to jog Jake memory this doesn’t work not completely anyway they find a church with the words here is the word of god almighty but there a few letters missing and in Jake mind to becomes The word of Al ighty then eventually the word of Al slowly Jake able to piece together that the information that he needs is in a notebook and a notebook is in a safe place.
What I Think – First of all before we get into what I think this I would like to point out that the plan that I originally had was to have read the book on the anniversary of the actual events and the last chapter would have been this week however I hadn’t worked out exactly length and pages so we are not going make this by a couple of weeks unfortunately. So my apologies for that
I’m not saying I told you so but, I knew something like this would happen,. Not in so dramatica fashion and not the point of this chapter driving me slowly up the wall with the fact that Jake can’t remember. First of all who he is second that he’s a time traveller and third the very small details of the fact that he was trailing Lee Harvey Oswald for the past 3 years or so.
It’s nice that we have the war going on inside his head between the yellow card man, Al and want is left of the real Jake. It shows progress but it also begs the question how much has Jake told Sadie and how much has told other people about Jake. We are told Deke says to call the police and tell them what Jake thinks he knows but knows that will just be dismissed,
There is also the fact that Sadie still believes that somehow they will be able to remember fully and completely and that also if he will recover they will take one last trip.
Like I said before I’m not reading the head so I don’t know how many chapters exactly we have left and what the outcome will be but I know by what we have read that we are coming to the end of the book. If you need something else happens to Jake turning him into the yellow card man I will be very disappointed I know we cannot have a sunshine Happy Days ending as it is a Stephen King book because he is known for writing very unusual and interesting twists in his books.
what it would be nice however is that Jake and Sadie get to live out their lives together no matter how or what happens.
That’s your lot for is week So as always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next chapter and until then bye for now and see you next week.
