Breakout by Kurt Petrey is a great escape into the world of artificial intelligence and its implications for humanity. From the first page, I was gripped by the intense storyline, as Jason and Taylor navigate a world where the line between AI and human control becomes dangerously blurred. What I appreciated most about this book was its ability to blend suspenseful action with ethical dilemmas. As I followed the characters through dark corridors and vast reaches of space, I found myself questioning the nature of freedom and the limits of human control. Breakout kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end, leaving me pondering the implications long after I finished reading.
