The Silence of Six by E.C. Myers

Max is in his school hall, watching the presidential debate in front of him when his best friend Evan comes on the screen and shoots himself in the head, after saying "what is the silence of six? And what are you going to do about it?"

The whole book is filled with hacking, technology, FBI chases, murder and fast-paced action and I loved every second of it. I can't help but feel as though if I was more interested in hacking, I'd have connected a lot better with the language used and content discussed as well as the characters, but that's purely my own opinion. I still loved this book and feel as though almost everybody would enjoy it. The fast-paced thriller kept me gripped throughout and I read it in two sittings, eagerly wanting answers and to understand what was going on. 

The way each aspect was carefully woven together was impressive - E. C. Myers definitely did a good job piecing everything together whilst giving nothing away. I'm fairly pleased with the ending; it tied everything up neatly and was a heart-warming ending, considering the fast-paced nature of the rest of the book. It left no questions unanswered and I enjoyed reading about the world the characters were a part of (even if it did make me feel as though I need to step-up my laptop security). I'd definitely recommend reading The Silence of Six, it will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you begging for answers.
