Publisher's Summary

Since the day her mother died, Jem has known about the numbers. Numbers that pop into her head when she looks into someone’s eyes. They’re dates, the numbers. Dates predicting with brute accuracy each person’s death.
Burdened by such grim knowledge, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. Maybe they can find happiness together, if only in the brief time that remains before his expiration date.
But on a trip to London, Jem foresees a chilling chain of events:
The city’s a target.
The clock’s running out.
The countdown is on to a blowup!

Waiting For More!

I purchased this and several other audiobooks the other day. I like to listen to the first few minutes of each, to see which book I want to start with... This book made me forget I was sampling. Hooked me right away! Has a great Narrator, very smooth! The Narrator sounds like she is telling the story, not reading it. I enjoyed this Audiobook and would recommend it to others! Great writing!

This isn't just an audiobook, it's a play...

At first I was wary of buying this audiobook because of the narration in the sample, but then I saw the reviews and decided to give it a go and instantly knew why people praised it, listening to this audiobook you get much more than you would have just reading the book, I don't think I would've liked the book if I read it in print...

You can feel how the narrator isn't just doing this to get her paycheck and go on with her day, she reads the story exactly as it should be read, she makes you feel all the emotions in every character's voice, something that you will not be able to get from the printed version, every character has a voice so different you keep forgetting it's one person reading this...

As for the story itself,well it is interesting, I wouldn't say it's the best story ever because it makes you wanna go inside the book and kick the main characters in the stomach for their stupidity but it's good enough to keep you entertained for those 9 hours...
