"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

We also get a parallel story which takes place in 1250 BC. Krieos, an angel, fell in love with a human, and she died in childbirth. The decisions he makes after that affect him and his daughter and an innocent village. We meet his old friend, Yamanu, who he trusts to help him hide from the Seer. This part is interesting but the book ends before the two storylines intersect.
I enjoyed reading this story. I didn't feel like I got enough with this part to have strong feelings about any of it, though. Airel and Michael both seem likable, but they're still in the get to know each other stage and haven't had any kind of heart to heart yet. I like Airel's friend, Kim. It seems like she'll add a lot to the story. I'm always interested to see how male authors portray teenage girls and I think they're doing a great job so far! I'm also interested in learning more about Krieos. I feel like this is just the beginning and this part ends on a cliffhanger, so as soon as I can, I'm going to read more!
[I've actually had a paper copy of this book for a couple of years. When it was pretty new, I met one of the authors, Aaron Patterson, at a Costco signing and I purchased a copy which he signed. I kept meaning to get to it, but didn't, so I was excited to see a blog tour for it. For this tour, I read the Kindle version which I received because I was a little confused since it was smaller than my paper copy. My paper copy is the first four parts of this story and the Kindle copy is the first part, so my review only covers part one. It also appears that the Kindle copy has quite a few revisions from the paper copy I have (including the very end--Kindle version is much better!).]
Content: Mild swearing
I received a Kindle copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.
If you didn't enjoy reading that paragraph, you won't enjoy reading this book.
The entirety of the book can be summed up as: Girl sees super good-looking new guy. They are into each other. Girl is going through weird supernatural puberty. Girl gets scared by mysterious murderer. The End. It's a lot of blathering about how good looking the new kid at school is and bemoaning how awkward she is around him.
The book is quite obviously written with little action so as to encourage you to buy the rest of the books in the series to see what actually happens. WELL, I AIN'T BUYIN'!
