After I read the first three sentences, I wanted to delete this assignment. However, my feelings about the genre should not hinder me from reading further.
Like fleas jumping erratically on a dog after it were sprayed with flea treatment, The End was confusing and hard to follow. I will not blame your grammatically errors for my lack of understanding, my lack of understanding rears its head from the simple fact- the plot or story line was not clear. One problem with your story line was the transition between different scenes. The asterisk * as a symbol for transition needs to be abolished, eliminated, destroyed, as a writer you must take the time to find a better and smoother way to make transitions.
Another confusing part of your short story was the Japanese, why are they in the story. It appears the story setting is outer space. I have this strange feeling that you use Microsoft grammar and spell check in rush. (Iíve done that myself. It was a huge mistake.)

The mystery. Pull me in. The ending it surprise the heck out of me. Just wow. Every last one of your character fit in the short story. I never ask myself why is that person in this story. Your characters had life and meaning. None of them... read
A review of Dr. Tower's Babelby dreamtowrite on 02/01/2011Your short story held my attention. However, I do not remember the main character's name. Despite my lack of memory, I must admit that your idea that Science and God are one in the same was quite intriguing. This review is not a debate on whether I agree with you or not. I won't do that to you. The reading level of your short story is college-level perhaps high school honors... read
