The characters are great and range from the strong females who find themselves in the midst of the action almost by accident, to the nerds who show other sides of themselves and play deeply in the plot and in the action, both physically and through their computer skills, and the power-obsessed megalomaniacs. Add to the cast the kids who ... well, you'll have to read the story to find out. I also liked the relationships that built throughout the story although I was wary of some that started out as conflicts but became cooperation later.
This book kept my attention throughout and was technical enough to pique my interest yet not so much as to bury the action and plot in nano-nonsense. The pacing was great!
So, if you want an interesting read with well developed characters, complex plot lines, an interesting setting (esp given the Stuxnet virus), and an ending that left me with one very short nail, then get it. Or do what I did - and just buy the boxset :)
For those who know the author and his other works, this book also will be a feast of recognition. The characters instantly come to life, as if you've known them for years, but Lior Samson also knows his stuff and connects technology and society in a scarily realistic way that will make anyone, even the nerdiest geek, think twice the next time they get online.
What an outstanding tech thriller -- better than Tom Clancy. The chilling subject is cyber terrorism and the potential threat that hackers can pose to our security and privacy. Samson really knows his stuff and you learn a lot about computers and computer hacking in this novel.
Some of the great characters from the two previous novels are back and although this can be read as a standalone, your experience is enriched if you've read the previous two. I read a lot of thrillers (my favorite genre) and this ranks up there as one of the best I've read in 2011. Five stars fully deserved!
