J.

It's not like I didn't expect it, but of course I don't feel like there is any real resolution to this story.  In the end, we aren't sure if J lives or dies, but we do know that he has come a long way since we first met him at the beginning of the story.  He isn't so self-absorbed and his hard exterior cracked a bit for Pamela.  He actually bought a stature of John Henry.  Perhaps he was feeling a bit sentimental?  Whether he lives or dies, we don't know for sure, but the mystery of J. is solved.  I'm going to take a guess and say that J. stands for John, and his middle name is probably Henry.  This assumption leads me to assume that he isn't going to go with Pamela.  His mission is to beat the record like John Henry's was to beat the machine.  Sure, they both would probably have been happier if they would have just let the entire notion go, but they have (and had) names to make and pride on their side.

I also blogged about the names, but perhaps Pamela would have come around to his mission to beat his record. Then again if he died, was he successful in beating the record? And who was J. fighting against? What machine? The internet?

I actually really thought we were going to get a resolution. I hate not having one.

I agree with Jess as she says in her blog, that J. does end up going with Pamela to New York. Letting her in on the secret that is his name is his way of entrusting his future to her. It's like he's finally making a commitment.
