  •     One day you are talking to someone you never met. You get so interested that you are going to meet that person.Kate did that and while talking to a person BB-9,finds out this guy is a alien.......
  •     I read this book ages ago when I was in the 5th grade and loved it. It was one of the first books that I flew through due to the presence of the theme: opening up a world to a child through the computer.What has always amazed me is that the book was written in '86, but you could read it today and understand how the computer worked because of our current usage of the Internet. That said, the author didn't foresee the common dangers of online computer usage today.The Computer Nut had an impact on me as a child, but decades later, it just isn't modern enough to deal with the on-line issues that children are presented with today.Upon a re-read in the seventh grade, I found the book to be boring. So I'd put the age of the intended reader somewhere between 10 and 12.
  •     I thought this book was not as great as i had expected i to be. I had to wait for 3 weeks for the book to come and I was so exited and then when it came it was a total disappointment. I thought that the alien B-B-9 was to simple and Kates friend Linda was not really needed. If you like mystery or adventure this book is not for you.
  •     The Computer Nut is about this girl named Kate who was using her dad's computer in his office for homework. Suddenly, a message pop up from nowhere.
  •     Pretty good story. Linda gets Kate into deep trouble, like... well, you can find out if you read the book.
  •     Although somewhat interesting, this book misses the mark. If you like computers and aliens, consider reading this book. It is poorly written.
  •     It's Surpising, I couldn't put it down. I wanted to keep reading and reading until I read it 5 times. One of the best I read since I could read chapter books!!!!!!
  •     While this book is fantasy and a good read, my wife and I pre-read the book due to it being assigned by our sons elementary school. He is 9 and in the 4th grade. I wasn't ready for him to be exposed to some of the underlying issues in the book. First, THE BOOK STATES that the tale of Santa Claus is a lie. So if you aren't ready for your kid to stop believing. Skip this book. The book is also based on someone that the children meet online by themselves. While it is funny to me as an adult, there are concerns about children surfing the net meeting very bad people who will try to convince them to come meet them just like the "Alien" does in this book. So if you are going to by a book for a young child to read on there own, buy something else.
  •     corny, but entertaining. This book was a classic. A girl, finishing up homework on a buisness computer gets contacted by an extraterrestrial life form who suggests that he is...
  •     The computer nut is great, and that is all I have to say. You can't read the story here. Go ahead! Buy it!
  •     The Computer Nut by Betsy Byars was funny and interesting, becuase Kate told jokes in the book. The charater BB-9 was funny too. Kate met BB-9 on her dads office computer when she was drawing a self-portrait for fun. I think, the author wrote this book for people who are into Fantasy. BB-9 was a robot that come down from a weird sounding planet. I give this book three stars becuase, the character BB-9 talked way diffrent from people from earth and, he acted weird so, that made it difficult to understand.
  •     I thought the book was okay. Some parts were boring. Some parts were funny. The parts BB-9 was not in the picture were the boring parts. If you are one of those people who can wade through boring parts, this is the right book for you!
  •     This book is about a girl named Kate who keeps getting sent messages on the computer. You will enjoy The Computer Nut if you like books about about aliens. I recommend this book for its thrilling comedy.
