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

Containment is only a novella which rumbles along. It however lacked depth in its plot and science detail and generally lacked description of the settings. For example, no views of Earth or the moon from space and few descriptions of the spaceships inside or out. There was also nothing unique in the orbital space station’s culture that would attract the interest of SciFi readers. This resulted in a very simplistic story, which I found a little disappointing. The characters were also not overly developed and so the interaction between them at times was quite two-dimensional lacking emotional depth and connection to the reader. On the plus side, the story did have tension and drama and an unexpected twist, along with a hint of a future romance. But we’ll have to wait and see. Overall, I had no difficulty reading the book and I won’t hesitate to purchase the sequel when it comes out.
This book was pretty good for the beginning of a series, though I wouldn't have minded it being a bit more fleshed out because the story line felt very rushed to me. Besides that I didn't really warm up to the main character much, it seemed like he had a huge chip on his shoulder plus a major case of holier-than-thou. I've enjoyed Ms. Jansen's other series' more because I really felt like I got to know the characters, I wanted to learn even more and hoped for good things for them. But Jonathan might chill some now that his life is changing again due to his actions at the end of the book.
There were a few twists that I wasn't expecting and besides finding out what happens next for Jonathan and Gaby I really want to know what's up with the mysterious objects that may or may not be heading towards Earth. Seems like a lot could be coming concerning if the military is on the up and up, so I'm giving Ms. Jansen the benefit of the doubt and hoping that the next book in the series fills in more about the characters and fleshes the story line out more.
