0.4 by Mike Lancaster

From Goodreads: It's a brave new world. 'My name is Kyle Straker. And I don't exist anymore.' So begins the story of Kyle Straker, recorded on to old audio tapes. You might think these tapes are a hoax. But perhaps they contain the history of a past world...If what the tapes say are true, it means that everything we think we know is a lie. And if everything we know is a lie does that mean that we are, too?

O.4 is one of those books I've been meaning to read for ages, and now I have finally read it I have no idea why I didn't read it sooner.  It is seriously good!

The story is told through Kyle Straker's tapes and intercepted with the occasional narrative of the editor. Kyle's voice really shines and I loved having the story told from his perspective.

The story is really creepy! And very different from anything else I have read. I absolutely loved the concept - I was completely and utterly engrossed. I'm trying not to give anything away as it's one of those stories you really need to go into without knowing much about it and just let it unfold.

Clever, well written and with an ending that will make you really think! I still can't decide what I would do. I can't wait for the next book, 1.4 when it is published in May.

This book completely surprised me. I really didn't expect to be sucked in as much as I was. Really looking forward to reading more in the sequel..
