My 8 year old son and I read this book together. We both really enjoyed it and it kept our interest. Very nicely done! Solid 4 star rating with high recommendations!

My rating system is as follows:

5 stars - Excellent, Worth Every Penny, Made It Into My Personal Library!
4 stars - Great book, but not a classic.
3 stars - Good overall, generally well written.
2 stars - Would not recommend based on personal criteria.
1 star - Difficult to read, hard to finish, or didn't finish. Wouldn't recommend

A good story for kids who like computers (what kid doesn't?) The 'live' computer characters reminded me somewhat of the old "Tron" movie. A quick read that kids will enjoy.
I received my copy from NetGalley for an honest review.

Zuto is intended as an allegory about the workings of computer software and viruses. The story takes place primarily within a minute or so of time in our world, which of course represents many clock cycles in a computer world.

Zuto: The Adventures of a Computer Virus is the middle-grade debut novel of Udi Aharoni. The story is set inside of a boy named Tom's computer and follows a Zutrog-33 virus named Zuto.

The Writing of Zuto really made reading the book a breeze. The style is definitely aimed at a younger audience with short chapters and cute illustrations every ten pages or so. There is also a "Zutopedia" in the back that defines some of the computer

"Zuto: The Adventures of a Computer Virus" by Udi Aharoni is a fabulous, quirky and imaginative book for youngsters. Tommy’s computer has a virus - Zuto to be precise. But Zuto is a laid back, inoffensive one who rides a motorcycle. He is happy to hang around with his friend, an outdated media program, Super Media 2.0. There is a friendly but dodgy calculator program in Newton and also Silver Shield, a virus fighting program. This extremely likeable but less than promising group join together to ...more

It's a great book

I love the adventurous characters and the theme it's about a nice virus and friends who live in a computer.I would recommend the book to someone who likes computers and adventure books.It's not educational and kids hate that
