On a small Caribbean island a woman joins the newest reality TV show: 24/7. For Dana Kirsten, winning the $2 million prize could mean saving her child’s life. But while the country watches her every move, Dana is entering a fight for her own life–and a conflict that will shake the world. . . .Vassa Island has been rigged with remote control cameras, a surveillance satellite system, and the most powerful television transmitter ever created. And that’s not all. For a small fee, anyone with a computer can access any of the 638 cameras live twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week–and vote as twelve carefully chosen contestants struggle with each other and the island. But only fifteen minutes into the first live broadcast, the show’s host and crew die a ghastly death. The shell-shocked contestants hear a voice echoing from hidden speakers: “I am Control, and this has just become the ultimate reality show.”Suddenly the voice is hurtling the contestants through a maze of traps and macabre, individually designed puzzles. And when the world-wide audience votes one person off the island, it isn’t just a loss . . . it’s death.With every day unveiling a new terror, and as one man from the outside races to crack the Vassa mystery, the only real way to win 24/7 is to find Control. And stop him. But Control has plans beyond the desert island, spinning a dark plot that could hold the entire world hostage in a grip of death.A thrilling, original mix of action, mystery, and reality TV gone wild, 24/7 will grip readers from the first page to the last, as it builds relentlessly to an explosive finale.

Jim Brown has the ability to keep you on the edge of your seat and never gives anything away, so you just have to keep reading to find out what happens. I love his style of writing and you can see his personality seeping through in some of his phrases and discriptions. If you like suspense, action and a story with a twist on what could really happen, then you WILL enjoy this. Another great book, thanks Jim. If you get the chance, read his latest 'BOOM', it's amazing.

I loved this book. The pace is astonishing fast and the characters riveting, especially the lead a single mother who will do anything for her daughter. The plot lines are unique, enthralling and amazingly, all tie together in the end.
The premises is a live reality show that turns deadly when the contestants are infected with a virus lethal in 24 hours. Each day there will enough injections for all but one. The person who dies is decided by on line voted. Using just around the corner technology Brown creates a program that cannot be taken off the air.
The nation is both enthraled and appalled. And the Navy, forced to blockade the island to ensure the virus doesn't spread, has been given a time limit after which they will blast the entire facility to bottom of the sea. Meanwhile the contestants must continue to play the game but with deadly consequences.

And that's just the beginning. Once you start reading it's hard to stop.
Brown should be commended for writing a book that is compelling and at the same time, layered. It's only after you close the book and begin to think about what you've read (and you will think about it) that you realize how deeply layered the story truly is. What, on the surfaces is a fun, rollicking novel also contains profound social commentary and sounds a disturbing warning we all should hear.
I haven't been excited about a new writer since Judy Mercer and I can't wait to see what Jim Brown's next book.

Previously I had read Jim Brown's novel <em>Boom</em> (click <a href="http://mcmaenza.blogspot.com/2011/09/book-review-boom-by-jim-brown.html"><b>here</b></a> for that review) and loved it. It has taken me awhile but I finally picked up a copy of his 2001 novel <em>24/7</em>.

<em>On a small Caribbean island a woman joins the newest reality TV show: 24/7. For Dana Kirsten, winning the $2 million prize could mean saving her child’s life. But while the country watches her every move, Dana is entering a fight for her own life–and a conflict that will shake the world. . . .</em>

The setting of the book is Vassa Island, with a whole <em>Survivor</em> meets <em>Big Brother</em> type of scenario. Contestants are monitored all day, every day, with constant surveillance cameras that broadcast their every actions and conversations around the world. But within minutes of the first show of the new season, things go horribly wrong and the contestants are fighting for their lives to survive.

It is up to one lone camera-man turned reporter to unravel the pieces of the puzzle in time, before each contestant is picked off one by one.

The story is fast-paced, engaging and pulls the reader right in. It makes a strong statement about how we have become a voyeuristic society and how we'll judge people based on what facets they put across.

As a fan of reality TV shows for a long time now, especially the sociological aspects of the contests of <em>Survivor</em> and <em>Big Brother</em>, this novel was right in my wheel-house. I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend it to folks who like the similar.

I am a fan of Jim Brown. His novels are great,fun to read, and contain characters who are people you want to love and hate. 24/7 is no exception.

12 contestants are brought to an island. They must each face a terrifying personal challenge and in return, they will be awarded little red glass stones called Safety Stones. What are these stones for? Each stone will subtract 10% of the votes that contestant receives. Why would you want to subtract any of the votes? Well kiddies, in this reality gameshow, being voted off means you die a horrible death. Each contestant has been given a deadly virus and must take an injection every 24 hours, at 12 noon, in order to survive till the next day. The island is rigged with cameras and each contestant is wearing a choker around their neck that also has a camera built in. Each day at 12, all the contestants meet and whoever gets the most votes dies.

This is a fresh, fun concept. I really enjoyed this book. The ending was a little silly, but the rest of the story more than made up for that. The personal challenges were wild and the death each loser faced was horrifying. This is an edge of your seat novel.

For those who like reality television, this book will amuse and entertain you. For those of you, like me, who can't stand reality shows, well....let me just say 2 words, poetic justice.

Join Dana, Cory, Justin, Nerine and the rest of the cast as they work together and against each other to survival another day. Oh, I forgot to tell you, the US Navy is out to destroy the island to keep the virus from spreading and one of the contestants isn't playing by the rules. This is survival horror at it's finest......enjoy!

I was given 24/7 as a Christmas gift and, not being a big fan of thrillers, did not expect to like it. I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, surprise seems to be the word that best describes this novel.
Mr. Brown has a wonderful, if twisted, imagination that makes it all but impossible to anticipate what will happen next. His plots are so compelling that you forget you are reading and if you're not careful, will loose an entire night's sleep.
Despite the large cast I felt connected to the main characters and frequently found my heart in my throat.
On two occasions I gasped out loud. Even as a frequent reader (I read at least two book a week) I can count on one hand the number of times that has happened in the last five years.

But perhaps the most surprising aspect of 24/7 is the plausibility. It could happen. Which makes this book compelling and frightening.
I recommend it for anyone who loves a good story.
