I’ve read a couple of books that have computer hackers as main characters in before. This book was kind of darker than I was expecting, but I actually did find it to be really well-written and the plot was intriguing enough to hold my attention throughout.
I don’t like multiple first person viewpoints, but I do like first person perspective if it’s just one character and I felt that Wick was a character I could really relate to. Some of the things that happened to her (and other characters’ reactions) kind of brought some bad memories back for me, though, and that was a bit difficult to read at times.
The other characters were fairly interesting as well. I liked Wick’s relationship with Griff and I found it believable, including the conflicts that rose. I would have liked to know a bit more about Griff’s past and motivations, but I felt it was sweet how much Wick wanted to protect him and he wanted to protect her… but I have some mixed feelings about them as a couple, even though I did like the relationship.
I’m really not a fan of love triangles, but Milo was an interesting character as well. I just kind of feel that love triangles have become too prevalent in books (especially young adult ones), so I can find them a bit off-putting when I’m reading about them. I had a conversation with my sister about them fairly recently, actually.
I would have liked to see more police officers. The only one who really appeared was Carson and although he was a character with a bit more depth to him, I really couldn’t see him as one of the good guys and I have seen a lot of things that make the police into villains.
I did get a bit confused about all of the different bad guys and their relationship to Wick. By the end of the book, I think I had a bit more understanding over who was what. Also, by the end of the book, I didn’t really like Bren that much… though that’s probably because I felt very protective of Wick through the book and that’s always a good thing.
I felt that this book touched on a few different genres and I also felt that there were some things in this book that came as a bit of a surprise to me. I’d like to read the first book at some point in the future, as well as check out other books by this author.
So don’t let anyone tell you a BA degree will keep you unemployed.
