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

The entire storyline is completely unbelievable. Jill being a pediatrician has absolutely nothing to do with the book at all. The medical references were incorrect and irritating. The sick child did nothing for the storyline except for take up space. Do we really need to know what each person is wearing from head to toe on every page? All through the book the characters acted a certain way, then in the last chapter everyone had personality transplants. Very inconsistent!
Extremely disappointed in this book.
The ending is sappy and quite predictable. Even the fact that she goes undercover for the FBI to get her husband's killer to confess is really no surprise in light of all that has gone on before. To me, this last part of the plot seemed unnecessary. It didn't change the story much and seemed to be an attempt to tie up a loose end that, on the whole, didn't seem to need wrapping up.
Overall, I thought this murder mystery lacked suspense. It was only when she and her daughter almost got killed that suspense entered the stage. In addition, I hated the way that quotes others say pop into her head in the form of italic print. They would seem to indicate some introspection but if it was happening, it got lost before finding it's way to her brain. I kept feeling like something was missing. Maybe it's that I didn't feel like I really got to know the main characters; what they're like, how they really fit in together in the plot. It felt a bit disconnected.
Like I said, this was my first Scottoline. Not my last. I don't like to judge any writer by one work and I know she's well-respected in the field. I just couldn't get into this one. It's just one person's opinion and I truly hope you enjoy the read.
