Si vous aimez la science-fiction, il n'est pas toujours facile d'y trouver un lien avec la réalité. Dans ce cas, ce livre, écrit en 2002 donne à la fois la sensation que l'auteur a vraiment bien travaillé son sujet, disposait d'une certaine vision du futur et aussi d'un bon bagage technique. Pas de vaissaux, de galaxies our de super-héros, rien que du bien concret.

L'avantage de l'approche est que parmi les acteurs, certains sont des "béotiens" dans le monde de l'IT ce qui laisse l'occasion à l'auteur d'expliquer pas mal de termes et de concepts du monde du "hacking". Ceci dit, rien d'extraordinaire pour les gens du métier.

Les méandres de l'intrigue (tout comme certains rebonsissements) surprennent et fascinent dans un premier temps, mais à force de répétition, usent occasionnelment la patience du lecteur. Ceci étant, le final justifie cette patience.

Attention : le vocabulaire employé est très riche pour un non anglophone. Un dictionnaire (papier ou en ligne) sera nécessaire pour clarifier certains mots que j'ai pour ma part rencontré pour la première fois.

Une traduction française (ou qui sait demain in bon film) devrait donner accès à un plus large public.

Fast and well-thought 19 mai 2001
Par Rob Lawrence - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book surprised me on many levels, and I start by saying that I highly recommend it. As a person who likes to savor books, I read this one in two evenings. After Speaking in Tongues, I was a little wary of getting excited about another Jeffery Deaver's book. But as a programmer, I decide to pick it up because it is about something I have an interest in. Wyatt Gillette, a convicted felon, and the California Computer Crimes Unit attempt to stop a man, and an unknown accomplice, who uses his computer for the ultimate evil: murder. Jeffery Deaver throws out a few curve balls to keep the reader guessing, but avoids the unbelievable twists that seem to be rampant in thrillers. Generally I find that hi-tech fictional works are usual laughable in their portrayal and explanations of the technologies involved. Along this line,I have long felt that Michael Crichton is one of the best authors in researching his topics. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Mr. Deaver did a great job in his own; all-in-all, his events and explanations were realistic and they reflect his opinion that the reader is not stupid, without going so far as to be a textbook on the subject. It is a very fast moving book, and there are complaints that the characters are not deeply developed. I attribute this to two things. It would take away from the quick pace of the story, and furthermore it is unnecessary. You learn enough about Wyatt and Phate without needless filler. Don't get me wrong, there are a couple of spots where I crinkled my nose in disbelief, but it is a work of fiction and it is a very good one at that.

A first rate thriller! 2 mai 2001
Par Debbie Lee Wesselmann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
From the moment I cracked this book, it became my downfall. I couldn't leave it, even for a few minutes, without longing for its fast-paced, utterly addictive plot. From the first paragraph to the last, this novel captured my imagination so fully that I wanted to skip meals and postpone sleep, much like the hackers portrayed in its pages.
The novel begins with the murder of a highly security conscious woman. From the first few pages, the reader knows this is no ordinary murder, although the chapters to come will reveal exactly how extraordinary the killer is. When the police suspect a skilled hacker who has taken his role-playing games into the real world, they enlist the aid of a convicted felon and "wizard" (an expert hacker) who is granted a temporary release from prison. At first glance, this is not a novel premise, but HOW the cracker accomplishes his murders elevates this story to the level of pure creepiness, reflecting the level of technology our society has acquired and our blind confidence in it. The killer's intelligence and intimate knowledge of code make him a particularly elusive and dangerous suspect.
Deaver's plot twists and turns so many times, giving false clues in the best spirit of genre and then dropping new ones, so the reader makes dozens of guesses about the outcome but probably will come up short. Although Deaver does make some clumsy moves (for example, dialogue often takes unnatural directions for the sake of exposition, and sometimes his facts are slightly off the mark) and can be repetitive, all in all his slips don't detract from this in-the-throat thriller. Yes, the characters aren't fully realized and verge on being types, but hey, you don't read this kind of book for characterizations. You read it to lose yourself in a suspenseful plot, and Deaver certainly delivers here. Deaver is such a good storyteller that he can make you both gullible and paranoid at the same time. Right now I can't even type this review without a hitch of doubt.
Next time your computer crashes, or your typing seems sluggish, or you meet someone in the street who looks vaguely familiar and who reminds you of who he is, you'll break out with little beads of sweat, wondering if the world really is how it appears. This residual effect is Deaver's greatest triumph.

Terrific plot 24 décembre 2003
Par Dan Ronco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This is Jeffery Deaver's first venture into a cyberthriller and he does a pretty good job. The strength of the novel is its plot: a no-holds-barred contest between two hackers. Wyatt Gillette is doing time for a few minor computer crimes when he is offered a temporary reprieve if he helps the state police track down a murderous cracker called Phate. The plot takes one turn after another, building suspense as Phate searches for new victims and Gillette tries to stop him. Why is Phate committing these murders? Who is his partner? Who's the traitor within the police? Is Gillette really a good guy? Plenty of mystery and suspense to keep you turning the pages.
Although the plot is terrific, the story has a couple of weak points. Deaver is not a computer pro and it shows. Although many of the inaccuracies are minor - only a technically sophisticated person would notice - some of them were really ridiculous (Gillette's fingertips are so strong from fingertip pushups that they crush keyboards during coding sessions).
Another problem is that Phate turns out to be a stock character - I won't give away the details, but you could probably put together a description without reading the novel. It's too bad because he starts out as an interesting, mysterious adversary. Still, the Blue Nowhere is a good thriller, well worth reading.

Blue Nowhere Goes Nowhere 26 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Maybe it's because I've been in the computer business for 20 years that this book bothered me so much with it's inaccuracies. Since the plot of the book is based on interaction with computers, the computer terminology and capabilities are the primary basis for the action in the book.
Let me give you a few examples of inaccuracies: his referrals to "IBM clone". It must be 10 years since I've heard that term, who uses that anymore? "PC" or "Windows-Based" is the generally accepted connotation these days. Then there is the computer "wizard" who boots his computer to the "blinking C: prompt" - why does a wizard use DOS? Beats me. Okay, say he has his reasons (like when booting off a "boot disk"), in reality the C: prompt doesn't blink, the cursor does.
Not real serious (yet), how's this: the hacker who runs a DOS program called "Detective.exe" - first of all that's an invalid filename in DOS (it must be of the form 8.3 - meaning 8 letters maximum for the first part of the name) - even if it were valid, you don't have to type "Detective.exe" to start the program, "Detective" is enough. A true hacker would have called the program "d.exe" anyway, saving typing and not revealing the program's purpose by giving it an obvious title (see TRAPDOOR next). There is also the "TRAPDOOR" program (which Deaver erroneously calls a "virus"; a "trapdoor" is a way of entering a computer system and has nothing in common with a virus). This TRAPDOOR program asks questions to elicit an action from the user. This is a pretty lame program for a "wizard" to come up with. Using mouse detection one doesn't have to answer such questions - you click a button to start an action. When a hacker writes a program he makes it as cryptic as possible so if someone else stumbles across it they won't know what it's for or how to use it - you don't put in a MENU detailing it's (possible or probable illegal) actions!
I also had problems imagining how a convict assembles a computer without a monitor but with a modem, using only the odd parts he finds lying around his prison cell (and he's in solitary too).
I don't understand how a book that is so geared towards computers gets published without a real computer expert to check it out first. {I love the movie Jurassic Park, but the computer scenes make me cringe - this is a Spielberg production! What happened there? Was accuracy sacrificed for artistic license?)
Deaver throws around a lot of terms like "Linux" and "Unix", but he doesn't have the basics down. I won't even go into the more advanced technical problems with what the so-called expert hacker in the book does (for example, Deaver treats all computers as if they were servers directly connected to the internet). Maybe I'm a little sensitive here, after all I am a hacker, NOT a cracker, and I know the difference.
I was so turned off by the constant mistakes I gave up reading after 70 pages. I just couldn't get into story. I've enjoyed other thrillers from Deaver such as The Bone Collector, Hell's Kitchen, etc., but he's really off the mark with this one. I can't recommend it.

Another Great Novel! 15 mai 2001
Par Zane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
There are some people who are mediocre at what they do and then there are masters. Jeffrey Deaver is the master of suspense in my humble opinion. No one weaves a thriller together quite like he does. His latest novel, The Blue Nowhere, is no exception. Phate is a killer, a killer that finds out every intricate detail of his victim's life beforehand by snatching the root directory of their computers. He is a hacker, the best of the best, a wizard and there is only one person that can stop him: another wizard.
Wyatt Gillette is trying to quietly serve out his three-year sentence at a federal penitentiary for computer tampering. However, he jumps at the chance to help track down a killer when the local authorities arrange to get him released for 72 hours. He gets even more excited when he discovers that the killer is one of his old running buddies. Wyatt and Phate had founded The Knights of Access together, both geniuses in their own right. But there was one slight difference: Wyatt did it for fun, just to see if it could be done, and Phate did it for evil. So they parted ways and now it is time for them to have the ultimate showdown. Typing more than 100 words per minute, trying to outsmart each other, the police fade into the woodwork as they go after each other for vengeance, glory, and for the love of the game.
This is not a good novel. This is a great novel. If you have never experienced a Jeffrey Deaver ride, this is a good place to jump on the bandwagon.
