"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.

This surprising pleasantness lasted through the first 11 (of 12) chapters, and I would even have enjoyed a few more chapters in this vein. The author, however, disagreed, and drew it all to a rather abrupt close. An author, of course, knows her characters and their limits better than the reader, but I was disappointed in Reverend Matthews' reaction to the news revealed in chapter 12, feeling it was out of character with the direction of his development.
So it is a good read...much better than average...so you must read it and be the judge of Reverend Matthews - and write your own review!
Reverend Matthews is the new vicar for a small mining town in England. He’s extremely hesitant about his new post, but soon discovers his predecessor left a ledger in which he wrote all the town peoples’ secrets, some aren’t really secrets as such, while others definitely are.
I really enjoyed reading about all the interesting people of this bustling 1970s mining town, the author does a wonderful job in her character and landscape descriptions, so much so I almost felt like I was there, walking down the road with the vicar.
My only reason for the 4.5 star review has to do with ending, it seemed a bit abrupt and I didn’t feel like the story built up to the reasoning behind it—my apologies as that’s a bit of a spoiler…but I wouldn’t pass this book by for that reason, it was a truly enjoyable read!
Typically I receive books for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, however this is a verified purchase.
