    1. This book is the story of an inquisitive young boy who, becoming bored at school, turns his attentions to learning how to hack -- except he's not a hacker of computer networks. The story takes place in the early 20s, and the boy figures out how to hack into the phone system. However, his conscience prevails when he realizes the extreme destruction that could be wrought were a less scrupulous person to figure out the same things he's discovered.

    2. Spurred on by the discussion of Alexander Graham Bell's theory of eugenics in Victoria Thompson's latest Gaslight Mystery, I reread this deliciously picaresque tale of Bell, Edison, Tesla, some pigeons and a deaf hero named Vole. It is a fantastic, informative, adventurous and humorous plot all rolled into one crazy adventure to trick the newly spawned communications industry in early twentieth century America.

    3. It has some unusual way of portraying biography. It starts with one story and dramatically ends with another. Minor details in the Little Egypt's life and his mindset is well captured. I think, author should have given some more information or details about Little Egypt's concepts behind his work. Some language is technical which might be the problem for some readers. Furthermore, focus on the rest of the characters is discontinuous.

    4. An intriguing mix of fact and fiction, with a liberal dose of scientific history. Set in the early 1920s, at a time when the telephone network was the information superhighway of the era, the story investigates the activities of the world's first hackers.It's the sort of book that makes you want to find out more - to work out where the boundary between the fiction and the facts lies.

    6. When I finished this book I applauded. Erudite, whimsical, funny, a slight tendency to go on tangents but always comes back, sometimes sad, but always hopeful.

    9. The book was decent, the writing solid, but the overall flow was a bit choppy, and didn't pull me in as strongly as I had hoped to.
