    I was thinking the card man is the main character older self from the future branched time lines.

    I didn't get that guy much, but he was an interesting plod point. Made me slow down my reading and ponder.

    (Thanks for that book, Ally)

    At first I thought he was going to be like a "low-man-in a yellow coat" type character. Toward the end I just took him (them) at face value. Wonder if we'll get a spin off book about them. They are human, how'd they get that crappy job?

    I wasn't a fan of the card man's scene when he explained time travel. It felt like exposition we didn't need. A lot of what he explained we could have figured out ourselves.

  6. Definitely made me think a lot too when this guy was introduced and after a while made complete sense. Really enjoyed the card man.
