Hacker - Ted Dekker

5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
My name is Nyah and I'm a hacker. I know things most people would never believe. Things that shouldn't exist, but do. Seventeen year old Nyah Parks is a genius hacker who makes a living by cracking the firewalls of the world's largest corporations. But when the biggest job of her life goes wrong she's plunged into a desperate situation with only one way out: one last hack that will either save her or kill her. So begins Hacker, a modern day parable that examines the staggering world around us, the seen and unseen, and reminds us that there's far more to who we are than meets the eye.

MY REVIEW - Excellent!... as usual. I know I keep telling you this and I probably sound like a broken record, but - if you have not tried Ted Dekker yet - you really should! This book unfolds in a style that Ted Dekker is so known for.
This is on-the-edge-of-your-seat writing, if there ever was a book that keeps you on the edge - this is it. It hooks your right from page one. It had me hooked immediately!

I loved the characters - Nyah is awesome! So smart and brave, and totally selfless. Everything she is doing is for her mother. She literately risks her own life for her mother's. She is a true heroine!
Even the very strange and quirky Austin was a very likeable character.

Here are a few quotes for you.
I loved these passages so much, I think I would write them out and frame them!
"Its how God works. I realized that life was beautiful, perfectly ordered, and death and suffering can be as well, in its own way."
"Suffering's not beautiful," I said.
"Necessary. Without it, growth would be impossible. There would be no opportunity for our hearts to unfold, to blossom, like they were meant to. The only thing that truly crashes our hearts is our unwillingness to let go. Let go of our need to control. Let go of our need to know the answers to our questions. No amount of suffering is truly heavy enough to crush us completely unless we let it. It only has the power we give it."

"Death isn't death. It's not the end because we aren't just our minds or our bodies. We're far more than just physical beings having a spiritual experience. We're spiritual beings having a temporary physical experience." ~ Wow! words to live by.
This is a great book that only gets better and better!
