How to deserialize a JObject to .NET object

According to this post, it's much better now:

// pick out one albumJObject jalbum = albums[0] as JObject;// Copy to a static Album instanceAlbum album = jalbum.ToObject<Album>();

Documentation: Convert JSON to a Type

From the documentation, I found this:

JObject o = new JObject(   new JProperty("Name", "John Smith"),   new JProperty("BirthDate", new DateTime(1983, 3, 20)));JsonSerializer serializer = new JsonSerializer();Person p = (Person)serializer.Deserialize(new JTokenReader(o), typeof(Person));Console.WriteLine(p.Name);

The class definition for Person should be compatible to the following:

class Person {    public string Name { get; internal set; }    public DateTime BirthDate { get; internal set; }}

If you are using a recent version of and don't need custom serialization, please see Tien Do's answer, which is more concise.

Too late, just in case some one is looking for another way:

void Main(){    string jsonString = @"{  'Stores': [    'Lambton Quay',    'Willis Street'  ],  'Manufacturers': [    {      'Name': 'Acme Co',      'Products': [        {          'Name': 'Anvil',          'Price': 50        }      ]    },    {      'Name': 'Contoso',      'Products': [        {          'Name': 'Elbow Grease',          'Price': 99.95        },        {          'Name': 'Headlight Fluid',          'Price': 4        }      ]    }  ]}";    Product product = new Product();    //Serializing to Object    Product obj = JObject.Parse(jsonString).SelectToken("$.Manufacturers[?(@.Name == 'Acme Co' && @.Name != 'Contoso')]").ToObject<Product>();    Console.WriteLine(obj);}public class Product{    public string Name { get; set; }    public decimal Price { get; set; }}
