The plot does tend to meander, with no real resolution of conflict. Plenty of unnecessary intro, TONS of conflict. The vivid use of "3" and "7" adds plenty of gore value, but it just never resolves anything. Where's the dénouement? The ending just leaves me empty and totally depressed. What happened to 9? We never find out. Will 2 ever be brought to justice? Do 5 and 8 ever get over their ennui, and get married? Who knows? What about 1, and the other 1? Can they really live together as a homodigital couple without being ostracized? I expect there will be a sequel (2 Million Random Digits with 200,000 Abnormal Deviates?).
I do find the book useful in a completely different way than the author intended. It's extremely relaxing to chant it while riding the subway. It tends to clear one's mind, and strangely enough people tend to clear away from me, and I get lots of free seating around me. Possibly my fellow subway riders are mistaking me for a holy man, and think I need to be left alone to ponder the mysteries of the universe. Whatever the reason, I arrive at my destination relaxed and ready for new challenges.
However, for the life of me, I have been unable to find Waldo on any single page yet!
Someone, please give me some hints!
It is really made of pages and pages full of random numbers!
Reading this gives you the feeling of the beauty of random,
and how big a million is. Wonderfully and deeply useless!
