    "This is a dystopian novel that is lower on the alarming scale than other famous dystopian books like 1984. The book is interesting, thought-provoking and almost prophetic, but the character development is weak at times. If you're lookong for a book with numbers in the title, this is likely to be one of the best ones out there."

    "I have a passion for books that have numbers in the titles. I always spent time in that section of the library as a child, and I suppose it was for good reasons. The three musketeers is by far one of my favorite novels! It is one that I have read time and time again, and will read to my children some day!"

    "This topic is wide open to ages and genres. In choosing a Dr. Seuss book which is one of the most read for children certainly it has to be counted. But a list like this can include This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki, Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech, and Three Blind Mice by Agatha Christie let alone Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut."

    "This category is so broad that you can hardly reccomend a book this obscure and hope to hit the mark. I am sure that "Three Bedrooms in Manhattan" is a wonderful little novella with a lot to offer the reader, but some of the greatest literary achievements of all time have numbers in the title. I mean, "One Thousand and One Nights," "1954," "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea." I'm sorry, but this quaint little work of fiction simply can not stand with some of man's greatest works."
