One thing I enjoyed about To Hunt a Sub was the technical reality Murray created for both the scientific and military elements of the book. I completely believed the naval and investigatory hierarchy and protocols, as well as the operation inside the sub. This book is just as convincing as the first but with the addition of a battleship. The operation, acronyms, and lingo were technical, realistic, and occasionally over my head, but never to the degree that I was lost. Rather, I was thoroughly convinced that Murry is a submariner!
The science behind both reads is well researched and felt completely authentic, from cutting-edge military science and technology to the capabilities of artificial intelligence. The first book introduces the reader to Otto, a computer-housed AI. He was effective and fascinating but not terribly engaging. In Twenty-four Days, Otto gets a mobile body and the algorithms necessary to acquire a personality. He becomes a captivating character in the story and was one of my favorites as he participates in problem-solving and saving the world from war. The whole cast of characters is well drawn, their personalities, emotions, and relationships believable. There isn't a lot of downtime to get to know them deeply though - the main reason to start with the first book.
All in all, a thrill of a read - 5 stars and highly recommended. I'm already looking forward to the next one!
This book has a multi-leveled plot that keeps you clicking those Kindle pages. The tension only drops to give the reader a well-deserved breather before it’s off and going full speed ahead.
The characters are engaging, and you worry for them. You hold your breath when they meet the overwhelming challenges both on the scientific front and the military one. I loved Paloma above all, and she’s someone I’d want in my corner any day. Otto was perfect. Please give me an AI of my own just like him. The relationships between the men were so real, and I particularly fell in love with how Murray handled the romance—nothing over-the-top, everything in keeping with the tone of the book. She had me wanting to reach into the book and strangle a few terrorists, but I was very happy to let her characters take charge.
While I’m not in any way familiar with Navy procedures or terms and I absolutely do not have a solid background in science, the story utilized both for authenticity without pulling this reader out of the story. That take some excellent writing.
