    Very interesting short read on time travel. My kids, ages 10 & 14, and I both enjoyed Dorso's adventures as his computer is hacked and takes him through time as the hackers engage in a game that could bring serious changes to the future's timeline.

    The Time Hackers by Gary Paulsen is a very intriguing book. The book is staged in a world where bringing back images from the past is possible. For example, if you wanted to, you could see the Gettysburg Address if you wanted to. The main character of this book is a twelve year-old boy named Dorso. Dorso has a friend named Frank who is always trying to find a way to get around the blocks that prevent you from seeing naked women in the past. Dorso has been getting holograms from dead animals in [...]

    Woolley mamoths, pirates and Bethoven all in the same story? That’s what you get when you travel trough time.

At any moment, the boys can get sent back in time which problem because they never know when it is going to happen. Dorso Clayman and Frank Tate teenage nerds who are not noticed by anyone Both boys t [...]

    Author Gary Paulsen does a great job of explaining the science fiction aspect of this book for me, since my aptitude for this genre is pretty weak. Aimed at children 10 and up, The Time Hackers carries the reader through countless historical events, such as the Revolutionary War, the time of the Wooly Mammoth, pirate ships attacks, Cro-Magnon cave paintings, and the Crusades. Main character, Dorso, and his friend Frank are unwittingly brought into a time-travel game concocted by 2 gamesters. Dor [...]

    I really liked this book. It is a mystery in a way. I always wanted to keep reading because I always wanted to know what was going to happen next because there was always something about to happen and a piece of the puzzle about to be put together. It was very interesting because it seemed like it could be happening now because of how things are but in the book there is so much technology. It is funny how they act like that kind if technology wasn't a huge breakthrough and how it is a part of th [...]

    Intriguing premise: a time-traveling mystery involving middle school kids that starts in the future. One caveat: the author reiterates the sidekick's PG-13 obsession with unclothed females excessively, to such an extent that it's distracting, no longer funny, and increasingly creepy as the story unfolds.

    FebruaryThe Time HackersGary PaulsenDorso keeps getting pranked. A lot. He has discovered with his friend, Frank, that someone out there is violating the time paradox and messing with history. Scientists have theorized that it is impossible to go back in time and kill and ancestor of yours because then you wouldn't be alive to do so. Dorso is walking to school with Frank one day when everything flashes white and they find themselves on a pirate ship with people fighting. Then after a minute or t [...]

    It was fun, at least at some parts I think that Gary Paulsen did a lot better on other books, but not this one. I only liked some parts of the book, like the end, and probably the time where they were traveling around through time.

    The book could have been better in my opinion. It was very slow at times, and it felt like I was falling asleep at others. The book did have some good parts though.

    I picked up this skinny little book at a booksale at one of the libraries I frequent, saw it was about time travel, and decided to give it a shot.  While I was not really disappointed in the book, that could have been because I wasn’t really expecting much from it in the first place.  The book itself is only 87 pages long and the text is pretty big so I already wasn’t expecting much from the plot.  The characters were kind of boring, being stereotypical static young teen boys.  But it wa [...]

    Draft FourBook Review by VivianThe Time Hackers by Gary Paulsen What would you do if one day you open up your locker and a dead man is hanging in there and disappears a few seconds later? And what would you do if you and your best friend were traveling back and forth in time? Find out what two middle school boys will do in The Time Hackers by Gary Paulsen.A middle school boy, Dorso opens up his locker and finds a dead body in it. This is not the first time that things have been appearing in his [...]

    The Time Hackers, by Gary Paulsen, is a fantastic read that combines such suspense between its very little pages.Time Hackers is about two boys, Dorso and Fred, who end up finding out that the situation that there in could change the whole world.This book takes place in the future, so all of the common things we do today are history and a bore in there world. Like TV for example, is watched by no one. Same with writing, everyone writes electronically now on tablet notebooks.Long story short, Dor [...]

    Never thought Gary Paulsen would disappoint. This is a little time travel, science fiction thing he wrote and I don't like it. I own it, along with several other works by Gary, but only read it today because of three of the sweetest fifth grade girls you would ever want to meet. They all approached me at my desk on Friday at school with concerned looks. Two of them explained that they had both checked out separate copies of the book at our school library on Thursday afternoon. One had already fi [...]

    The blocks of the time paradox have been breached! The fate of the universe rests in the hands of two middle school boys. The book The Time Hackers by Gary Paulsen was a tale of two boys wrapped up in the elaborate scheme of two extreme gamers. In the story, figures and items from the past can be brought back into holographic form in the future. When this technology was invented, people used this to their advantage, but not in a positive way. People used this to view pornographic images, and and [...]

    I read the Time Hackers by Gary Paulson. It all started as Dorso Clayman discovers a medical cadaver in his school locker ("It was an old cadaver. Runny").discovery of a "hologram projector chip" has led to "time projection": anyone with a laptop could now "pull images from the past and project them anywhere." Yet this technology is supposedly governed by the "paradox of time"; individuals can view the past but cannot physically be transported back in time so as to be able to alter history.I lik [...]

    MontanaLibrary2GoWaste of time. Fortunately not a lot of time, as it's only 96 pages and so only wasted half an hour of my evening. The characters are annoying (yes, I get that 12 year old boys want to see naked ladies. I do not believe that there are many 12 year old boys who are so consumed and obsessed by the concept that it takes precedence over all else, including the amazing events happening to him and his friend here. Additionally, if he wants to see naked women, why do they have to be na [...]

    This book was certainly no Hatchet. The first half of this very short tale dwells on the pranks and obssesions of adolescent boys-excrement and dead rats in a nerd's locker and their desire to view famous ladies of the past in the nude on their computers because a time line has been discovered in which past events can be viewed on screen as they happen. No one is allowed to disturb the past for many reason, but when one of the two boys finds himself interacting with Custer and a woolly mammoth, [...]

    I just noticed that I never wrote a review of this bookI stumbled upon it when search for Gary Paulsen's The River at the library. Having just become an avid watcher of Doctor Who, I thought it would be fun to read a young adult fictional tale of time travel.At under 80 pages, this is a very quick read for an adult. Unfortunately, it's not Paulsen's best. Since I read it two months ago, I admittedly don't remember too much about the details of the book. It was cool that people in this fictional [...]

    The Time Hackers was a great short book. It was long enough for me to get my house cleaned which is all I really needed it for. Dorso and his friend Frank have been chosen to receive crazy "jokes" by an unknown person or people. They can show up anytime and there is no way to tell when or to stop them. The time line can be shifted by most anyone and you can pull then transmit anything from the past. Along with this ability there are rules that are to be followed or there might be some pretty bad [...]

    This had a clever premise which became less and less believable as the story went on.In the not-so-distant future, technology permits the viewing of the past via your laptop computer. Oddly, you can get both sight and smell of the past, but not the other senses, through a form of projective hologram.A middle schooler begins finding surprises in his locker, apparently things projected from the past in strange ways. This leads him and a friend into a bizarre adventure in which someone appears to b [...]

    Quite a departure from the other Gary Paulsen books I've read, but an engaging, quick read. Scientists have discovered how to look into the past, so anyone can view the actual battle at Gettysburg or see what Cleopatra really looked like. Then Dorso (what on earth is up with that name?!?) discovers that it's possible to actually go to the past and change the course of history. (Guess whose fault it is that Beethoven went deaf!)There is some talk (by 12-year-old boys) about trying to see famous w [...]

    This book was a little too fiction for me. It's about a boy named Dorso who gets his laptop fixed but didn't know it had a time travel chip put inside of it.It causes a lot of chaos with sending things from the past to present [with the smells and everything] and making Dorso and his friend get caught in events in the past [some of which they could've got killed in]. After everything, (stopping the other fools who had stolen chips from their creator to play with time and possibly mess everything [...]

    Good sci-fi read for fifth grade and up. In the future, we can observe past happenings with our computers. You can visit them, but you can watch a hologram of what has happened. Of course, there are restrictions to what you can watch, kind of like how movies and TV are rated today. But someone has figured out how to bring the events to life. It is no longer a hologram, this someone is playing practical jokes on Dorso and his friend Frank.As the pranks begin to escalate, Dorso and Frank have to f [...]

    REQUIRED AUTHOR: GARY PAULSEN Dorso and Frank are seventh graders. And they've stumbled upon something huge. Someone has been playing jokes with the time line. But the jokes aren't funny anymore. It is up to Dorso and Frank to stop the pranksters and return the time line to normal.The idea of The Time Hackers was really interesting and clever, but the narration felt very, very rushed. I felt like I didn't know the characters at all and Paulsen didn't take the time to make me care about them, whi [...]

    Dorso Clayman, 12, is suddenly the victim of several practical jokes. Holograms appear in his locker and he can SMELL them--worms, deada fish, and dead bodies. The jokes get progressively more extreme, until he is being taken back in time and put into dangerous situations, stuck in the middle of a deadly game being played by a couple of time hackers.Dorso's friend, Frank, tries to help him catch the time hackers before it is too late. Action is fast-paced, but there is little character developme [...]

    This was a book I did not see to be interesting, but don't judge a book by it's cover! This was a short, intriguing book. I liked it because as the problems grow, the book makes you start to imagine whats coming up next in the book. The book had a weird mystery-like tone to it. The two main characters were Dorso, a responsible leader; and frank the loose, laid-back type of guy. This would be a good short book for someone who likes to read upcoming-like stories where you can't just preedict what [...]

    This was in interesting take on time travel. The historical details and the actual time travel tended to drag the story a bit, but I guess Paulsen used this vehicle to show the inevitableness of fate and history, and to create a background, tools to help the main character step out of his comfort zone and become engaged in the world. He learned to take a stand and decide what was important enough to him to risk. I can relate to that not wanting to leave your comfort zone. That's probably why I r [...]

    Oh, this is hilarious. I like Paulsen's stuff anyway but had never picked this one up. It looked just right for filling in a wait while I was working at the library and I was exactly right. I especially liked the younger sister's persecution of the family cat and how it's described. It's not always the case that tech ages well in books, but this is still fine and communicates what's intended. I'll have to talk this one up more to kids.

    An extremely short story that was made as a novel. In a way it felt more like a synopsis than the whole story. I found myself wanting to know more about Dorso (and his strange little sister Darling) and his best friend Frank. I also wanted to know more about the "gamesters" and how everything worked. It was an ok read (fairly quick as it's only 87 pages long!!). I just feel like there was so much that was missing.

    Dorso and Frank, normal ten-year-old boys, live in a time when technology has advanced enough to allow anyone to watch historical events as they happen. Sadly, someone is playing practical jokes on the two boys, and they are popping in and out of various time periods, unexpectedly. Their goal is to find out what is going on and who is behind it.This is a sort of Hardy Boy mystery with a cool sci-fi slant that is sure to please any young boy who hungers for adventure!
