I never knew what was coming next and each time a plot point felt wrapped up and I couldn't imagine where he would take it next, a twist would be thrown in that I was never expecting. It kept is exciting and made me not want to put it down and stop reading.Read more ›
Sam Wilson is the one of the best hackers in the new world where online gaming is the new drug. Keyboards are now inferior to the new technology of neuro-headsets which allows you to close your eyes and the computer screen becomes your mind. Sam was invited to neoh@ck an international hacker convention for the best of the best. However it was a part of a test and he was sent to juvenile but he broke out and was later picked up by an old friend. Now Sam, his reunited friend and other people are all a part of a secret government service full of hackers whose job is to protect the U.S from cyber terrorist.
I absolutely loved this book because the reader was so vivid and descriptive in his writing. I felt enjoyable tension while reading this book. I felt this way because there was a lot of action and I felt very much like I was inside the book battling off DoS spiders and file predators. I think I can relate to Fargas who is Sam's long time friend who has fallen into the trap of video games. When Sam left Fargas he had nothing to reinforce him to not play video games resulting in him to become an addict. I can relate this to me because when I got my first gaming console when I was probably nine. I admit played it way too much and it continued on when I got my Xbox playing hours at a time but my mom put me in her own rehab. I was finally unhooked and was able to live without thinking about my score on a game.
A novel a reader of this type might also like is "Beneath the Ice". One might like this because it is another action thriller however the themes are totally different. This novel is about two scientists who go to Antarctica who are just getting samples of ice for research. However, they find something else while digging in the snow.Read more ›
Sam and his group of hackers work to keep "them" out of the United States Internet system. No one actually knows who "they" are, but they're out there and are constantly trying to get at classified information. One entity, known as Ursula, wants more than information. She wants total control of the human consciousness.
Sam and his cohorts won't let that happen.
Not unlike Cory Doctorow's LITTLE BROTHER and FOR THE WIN, Falkner presents a scenario that deals with cyber-terrorism/espionage. If you aren't a techie, don't worry; context clues are a wonderful thing, and Falkner makes the story accessible to all readers. Much of what he discusses read like Sanskrit to me, but it didn't matter because the story itself was so engaging.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and am excited to see what the author has in store for us next!

It was a good read and VERY immersive, 5 out of 5.
The only down side in my mind was that I think that it could have been longer.
I loved the character development in this book, and being in the networking field myself, I was able to relate to a lot of the terminology the author used.Published 20 months ago by hikaritanjou
it was a great read for my son's homework assignment - a little challenging and sometimes confusing. Story flow and details about hacking could be improved.Published on August 13, 2014 by Anthony F. Williams
Pretty interesting story and ideas, but not fully realized. The characters were somewhat shallow and plot a little two easily resolved. Not bad but not a serious read.Published on June 27, 2014 by captrut
