"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.

Most of this is a pretty decently plotted tale-albeit a little far-fetched, of a recently married commando couple- Alton and Mallory who get a call from a girl they knew in Afghanistan, while they are on thier honeymoon. She needs help and quickly, or she will be killed by her Al-Queda uncle. The intrepid couple springs into action and puts a plan into place that will bring the girl to the U.S. THe plan involves their going to Afghanistan to collect her, but by the time they arrive she's nowhere to be found, and there is evidence of foul play.
This kicks in the cult subplot as Alton and Mallory start to try and find her. They quickly figure out that it wasnt the obvious evil uncle who abducted her, so who did?
THe narrative here is strong and fills in gaps in the dialogue adequately.
Dialogue is clunky- they dont speak like real people. Particulary the young girl who is being held captive.
Formatting and verbiage are all decent.
Characters- a little wooden. You would never meet any of these people
Bottomline- an ok read that follows a formula pretty tightly.
