Book Description

March 26 2011
The one with the rifle appears to be the leader. "You folks look well dressed; this will be a good week. Don't any of you men shoot anyone. You know why we want the girls whole. We may have to use some fire to get that big guy to tell us where he hides his gold, but we want him alive to talk." Jake starts to step forward, and the brute king shouts at him. "Don't move unless I tell you to, or we'll blast your legs, you won't need them again anyway. You girls come from behind him. Nice. After me and the men are done with you maybe we'll give you to the boy. Walk up to me nice and slow, I want to enjoy this." Jane and I don't need to look at each other; there is no way we can delay until backup arrives. I hope Bill can get one for us, he may not know Jane, but he knows what I'm about to do. We walk forward slowly. "Leave my sister alone," I say drawing his attention "I'm the one you want."

Product Description

About the Author

"Civilization's progress has always been initiated by individuals balancing demands within their intimate groups against their personal needs for independence and identity. Social engineers and central planners always err at this point. What they endeavor is to convert humankind from small, intimate, flexible tribes into a collective with one mind (their mind of course). -- They want to make all the complex human herds and packs composed of individuals into a single hive of drones. They have always failed, they will always fail; for outstanding individuals will continue to emerge - imagining and accomplishing exceptional goals - changing everything." Allan R. Wallace

3.0 out of 5 stars Social Commentary May 14 2011
By KnitLit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hacker School is a combination of science fiction and biting social commentary, which is unsurprising given its dedication to Julian Assange of Wikileaks. Like most Sci-Fi, this story explores a couple of interesting "what if" questions: What if the sharing of innovations continues to be controlled by a small group of people? What if all our digital information becomes lost and we have no books as back-ups? What if the only way to preserve our way of life is through allowing the open exchange of information, with no secrets held back?

Unfortunately, the story line and potential to explore an interesting possible future get left behind in the author's obvious desire to get his point across: all secrets are bad. This is delivered in the form of dialogue between characters who all agree with each other, leaving little room for character or plot development, and certainly never exploring a differing point of view.

His points are interesting and thought-provoking, but could have been even better if written either in an outright treatise or hidden artfully in excellent science fiction. Unfortunately, the book was neither.

Having said that, it was a quick read, and I don't really regret the time I spent on it. I guess I'd just like to see the author develop his talent into something great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but bland. July 21 2011
By L.Santos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is interesting, the plot however is very bland. It is not very well written and there is no contradiction within the characters. The dialogue is confusing at times, and my concentration strays. Overall, it's a fair book, can do with or without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading May 25 2011
By JML -(o_0)/¯ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Set in the future, Hacker School is a place for young hackers to access information that has been withheld from the people for a long time. These hackers must be smart, but also able to survive in a lawless society.
While somewhat lacking in character development, I am hoping that the next books in the series fill in the gaps. I definitely want to continue reading on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Credible & significant future June 26 2011
By P. F. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this because it was free on the Kindle, but after reading it started recommending it to people all around me. It is not that well written, but what was really riveting for me was that based on my insider knowledge of the information professions and the decisions being made by current leaders in those professions, the future predicted in this short book is very similar to the worries and concerns about the future of information access that nag at me daily. The story's premise is very realistic and plausible, and that is what makes this an important read. If you read this book, consider also reading the excellent nonfiction work Transparent Society by the rich thinker and contrarian, David Brin.The Transparent Society: Will Technology Force Us To Choose Between Privacy And Freedom?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a great book. March 5 2013
By Blocktopia9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book may sound good, but is simply not a good book. The idea is great, but the book is written terribly. The only reason I don't give it one star is that I love sci-fi books. Please don't waste your time on this book.
