    Very very good.

    Very good plot. I wish it would have gone on longer! I think the author could have made this a longer story by developing the characters and adding more background to the plot. I would love to know more about Andie and Jack's relationship as well as more detail to the subway and bus incident. Also, how the ability to see numbers is passed on. Definitely worth reading though.

    A Disappointment

    I read this book based on so many glowing 5-star reviews. The plot concept is interesting, but the characters are poorly developed even for a short story, more like cardboard cutouts. The attempt at establishing a past office relationship for the main character fell flat, and served as an awkward vehicle for adding some additional story details. The ending could be guessed several pages in advance (although some reviewers seem confused over it) and I found it to be less than convincing, probably because the young man (antagonist) featured at the end seemed less than authentic. It's short, but still not worth reading in my opinion.

    It was a very creative short story. It was interesting and held my attention. A little depressing however. Overall very good!

    Very well put.

    One of the most interesting and though-provoking stories out there. Highly recommend to Teens for a quick read. This book adds character and opens up are eyes to see what other people see, but we miss out on.

    now this was good

    this story was awsome...it about this woman who can see numbers above our head....but that is all i will say because this is a short story and it will ruin in for everyone....the reason i will not get into detail is because some people here read review and will complain that people ruin it...so i will say this to those people get over it and they did not ruin it...sometimes these summaries do not explain very well so i am thankful for you guys who do...ignore the haters

    Mixed review

    Loved the ending, the beginning was fine, the middle needs a bitt more work. The story could use some development in the characters and plot, a dozen or so more pages used to describe and explain certain situations or relationships with co workers could have helped. But it is an okay story.

    Sounds like the plot of a familiar movie

    As I read this, it felt familiar, as though I had seen a movie similar to this. But it was still good.

    Enjoyed

    When I started to read the story all I could think about was "Great, based on that Justin Timberlake movie. I am not going to care for this." I wish that the story was much longer than 33 pages. The story was interesting, but left me wanting to read more about Jason at the end.
