For the Guys: Guest Review - Brain Jack

Every Friday I highlight books and authors that are ones boys might really enjoy. I'm not saying girls wouldn't read these books, but they are clearly "guy" books.

This week I have a student review for:

Brain Jack
by Brian Falkner

Here is his review
 Sam, a hacker, hacks into the Teleimerica and orders 2 pairs of "Neruo Headsets" and shuts down the entire system.  He gets into a cyber place of the White House and rings the virtual door bell and it ends right there.  He wakes up and the door bell rings and it was the police to arrest him for hacking.  He goes to a jail for kids under the age of 18.  He plans a way out and his friend Kiwi helps him escape the daring prison.  He gets picked up by a taxi and a CDD agent picks him up and gives him a deal to work with the Government.  Sam accepts and they go to a building and show him the main area for the CDD.  CCD stands for Cyber Defence Division.  He gets teamed up with a guy and they work together to team up and destroy the Neuro as it tries to take peoples mind and turn it against everyone who doesn't got one and turn them into one.  Will Sam make it with help along the way? 

This book was a very good book and a great read aloud i say to to a family or a class.  I would recommend this book to friends and family!  The things that I liked about this book was that it was about hacking, a major war, on the run experience, and scary in some ways.  This book was not bad but the only dumb part was did his friends live? Did his mom live?  What happened after this war?  What happened to his CDD Department team?

In other words this book was very good!  Again i would read this book again!  I would give this a book 4.5 out of 5!

         Thanks, for letting me review this book for you!

  1. Looks like a fun read and would be a fun movie too. I'm now curious how some things are "dumb" in the book --- so I'm going to put it on my wishlist.
