Effective children's book, but not really for adults,
This review is from: Numbers (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
"Numbers" is a book for young adults that has a great premise, namely that a teenage girl can foresee the date on which those around her will die. I think younger readers will enjoy the drama of the story but for me, the writing and characters were not really sufficient to properly hold my (thirty-year-old!) attention.
The slight air of cynicism and world-weariness in tone did not quite ring true for me. The book improves once the plot properly kickstarts and events race ahead but it takes a while to get to that point in the company of characters that unfortunately I couldn't get too interested in.
