Perfectly paced with a gripping plot, Six Stories has a uniqueness to it which is unlike anything I've read before. It has a distinctive structure, as it is written in the form of a podcast and is told through six characters giving their take on the events that took place twenty years earlier.
This modern twist made the book very realistic and I felt as though I was actually listening to the podcast. Each character had an individual voice which enabled me to picture them and the events vividly.
As the stories unfolded from the different characters perspectives, it became apparent that they were all trying to present themselves in the best way and would avoid the truth to do this. There were secrets aplenty and each interview made me all the more desperate to find out what had happened to Tom.
I really liked the way the ending left me to draw my own conclusion. It felt fitting considering the presenter, Scott King, had encouraged this throughout the book.
Overall I'd give this book 4.5 out of 5. It's a brilliantly modern and gripping take on the classic thriller. I'd definitely recommend giving it a read.
