I worked my way through this book quickly. It is sparsely written, in keeping with the main character's situation - nothing extra, no feelings, "Just the facts". Although the premise is a little farfetched, it is well presented and keeps you guessing along with the narrator. Recommended.

I LOVED this book. Got some really good action with coolness. Its going to be a great
ride for you if you read this book.

This is a well-written suspense novel, but based upon the super-creepy premise of training a teenager to be a pscyopath. So many books in the YA category portray the heroine or hero (main character) as a sociopath or trained psychopath - - it is really disturbing. Maybe those articles which mirror the novel by Dean Koontz titled, "Relentless" should be perused quite closely? Five stars for the writing; one-half star for the premise of this book. (In the adult category we see the same thing with many of the novels by Thomas Perry, with the sociopathic killer more or less stumbles into it? And is heroically or sympathetically portrayed?)

Action packed, thriling, and FUN! I loved this book. There is a great deal of suspense, and it's really cool to see how Boy Nobody handled the tech. (His iPhone is wicked). There is also a great mystery and the ending was awesome and shocking. I totally recommend this book if you want something kickass and entertaining. There's also a great female character in Sam that will totally take you by surprise.
