TBTB = Throwback Thursday for Books
Remember those books you’ve read before blogging, or during a time you just weren’t in the mood to write reviews? Let’s talk about them now.
„The Silence of Six“ by E. C. Myers
I’m not a hacker (but a hacker would probably say that too, you’ll learn that in the book), but I am a professionally trained software developer. I took the job because computers were always my passion, my hobby, just like books are, but the two things never really seemed compatible. Until the Silence of Six.
This book is everything a computer nerd like me could wish for, and everything all you not-computer-nerds should want.
It will make you question a lot of things you do online, and how our current social media society might threatennreal life situations. It might freak you out a little about using the internet, but you will walk away from it smarter and a lot better informed. You will definitely walk away from it changing a few passwords.
And all of that is packed in an interesting and scary story, with characters that don’t reveal much about themselves until the end. But that’s the charm and magic of it.
The book is honest, real and not real, but it reveals so much truth about the computer geeks of the world. Spoiler alert: none of them spend 24-hours in a cellar, trying to rob your bank account.
So, what is the Silence of Six, and what are you going to do about it?
I’ll tell you what you should do about it: read this book. Learn something. Get smart. Question things, question everything.
