Five hackers—an Anonymous-style rabble-rouser, an Arab Spring hacktivist, a black-hat hacker, an old-school cipherpunk, and an online troll—are detained by the U.S. government, forced to work as white-hat hackers for Uncle Sam in order to avoid federal prison. At a secret complex known only as "the Lodge," where they will spend the next year working as an elite cyber-espionage team, these misfits dub themselves "the Zeroes."
But once the Zeroes begin to work, they uncover secrets that would make even the most dedicated conspiracy theorist's head spin. And soon they're not just trying to serve their time, they're also trying to perform the ultimate hack: burrowing deep into the U.S. government from the inside, and hoping they'll get out alive. Packed with electric wit and breakneck plot twists, Zer0es is an unforgettable thrill ride through the seedy underbelly of "progress."

Starts out great turned out bad
The story started out very well and accurate to real world stuff then turned into weird terminator scifi. Very poor one.
The ending made no sense.
This book was fantastic all the way until the last three or so chapter which were confusing and rushed.
I’m not a big fan of reading books, but decided to buy this because it was recommended on iBooks and I tend to enjoy adventure/mystery/thriller novels. This book is a little bit of a let down if you enjoy reading brain-intensive intriguing novels, but if you are just looking to pass time, it took me around 2-3 hours to fnish. The plotline isn’t extremely complex and the writing is easy to understand. The main issue I had with the book was that the writing was merely on par with that of a high-school student. The ideas were too simple and seemed like something I would read in a piece of fanfiction rather than a book selling on the iBooks store. Maybe I’m too picky, but this novel made me feel like I was going through the motions of reading a book rather than actually being drawn into the plot. It feels like a book written for those aged <15 years old but in my opinion includes some notions inappropriate for those age groups. Maybe if you’re the type to read one book a year because you’re too lazy to read/ hate reading, then this book is not too bad because it kinda puts you in a vegetable-like state.
