If you just need to get a few items from the JSON object, I would use Json.NET's LINQ to JSON JObject class.

=== For example:

JToken token = JObject.Parse(stringFullOfJson);

int page = (int)token.SelectToken("page");
int totalPages = (int)token.SelectToken("total_pages");

I like this ap...

I am getting the k_BackingField in my returned json after serializing a xml file to a .net c# object.

I've added the DataContract and the DataMember attribute to the .net c# object but then I get nothing on the json, client end.

public class LinkedIn
   public string ID { get; set; }

    public string Industry { get; set; }

    public string FirstName { get; set; }

    public string LastName { get; set; }

Example of the returned json:

home: Object
<FirstName>k__BackingField: "Storefront"
<LastName>k__BackingField: "Doors"
