    Simplistic and clever- a true classic. I would recommend this book to any reader of any age; this book will still intrigue and excite you, regardless of your age.

    My absolute favourite book! Plot twists, suprising ending, Hacker has it all. Malorie is a favourite author of mine, and if you enjoyed this I suggest you read some of her other tales.

    Malorie Blackman books are great! Most of her books do include computers, and she makes it sound very interesting the endings are always good and Hacker is one of best plots i have read.
