"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Having lost both of my parents, the ebb and flow of painful grief that Archer moves through felt immediate, intense, and most importantly, very, very real. I ached right along with him. The journey that both of them take through grief felt almost too private to read, yet was so important to who they are as individuals and, ultimately, as a couple.
I read this book in one sitting, because it flowed along so lyrically that I couldn't bear to put it down. It would be like stopping a beautiful piece of music, mid note. But then I sat on it for 24 hours before writing this review, because I was so personally invested that I wanted to keep it to myself for a little while. To hold on to my feelings, tight against my chest, and remember and savor them, before putting them down in public words.
I don't think I've come close to doing this book justice, but I needed to try and express how truly wonderful it is. Five heartfelt, heart aching stars.
-The tone of the story. Nash Summers’ writing here has a quiet, melancholy, poetic feel to it that I love. The tone and pace matched the characters and their story perfectly.
-The characters. They were fleshed out and experienced character growth as the story progressed.
-Relationship development. If you’ve read my reviews you know I love a slow burn, and this is one of the best I’ve ever read. From the start, their relationship never felt paternal; Archer has been through so much that he’s an old soul at heart. Theirs was a friendship that grew into more, and while those feelings were growing, they stole my breath.
-Angst. This story was emotional and packed a punch at times, but it never felt so overwhelming I thought about taking a break.
-The time lapse. When you read it (and you all need to), you will know what I mean.
-The climax was perfectly executed. There’s nothing I hate more than a drawn out, overdramatic conflict- not so here.
-The end. They’re in it for the long haul, and I would love to read a Christmas novella-I practically salivate at the idea.
Do I have any negatives? I don’t; this was perfect.
There’s no way I could do this book justice in a review. It’s beautiful and heartfelt and one you should read and experience for yourself.
This is going on my Top Ten for the year. 5+ Stars!
Reading this book was a great experience, it had a lot of sad moments but along with the sorrow there was a lot of hope. It was a bit too slow pace but it work fine considering the emotions portray by the main characters, there were a few moments when it was bothersome but overall I enjoy it.
I loved how the book didn’t try to force the idea that love would conquer everything. They love, but they still struggle with their emotions. They still have a long way to go to overcome grief, but it seem easier by the side of a beloved one. Mallory and Archer’s relationship felt realistic. The age gap was something I generally wouldn’t feel that much comfortable with, but I didn’t find any problem with it, they were just two people in love and so perfect for each other. I just wanted them to be happy, it feel like they deserve it.
It was a great book, there were very few things that I didn’t liked, among them sometimes the pace, and sometimes too Danny’s attitude. None of them important enough to make me like it any less.
2) This story is rich, vivid, emotionally charged, and left me thinking about it long after I finished.
3) Heartfelt and never less than engaging, peopled with realistically drawn characters, this novel makes for some very satisfying reading.
4) A superb storyteller, Nash Summers gives us characters who enthrall, and a soft-spoken story that speaks to the reader's heart. This is a must read romance, full of emotion, well-developed arcs, and a happy, satisfying ending.
5) I loved everything about this story. The writing was excellent and tight. It has everything one could want in a story, the feels, the hope, the romance, even the age gap was done with care. I love reading about a broken man being put back together with love and care, but two? Even better! I loved how their story was built slowly and carefully. This.Was.Good!
