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

Synopsis: When a woman is kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight, Jack Reacher’s in the wrong place at the wrong time. He’s kidnapped with her. Chained together and racing across America toward an unknown destination, they’re at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because Reacher’s female companion is worth more than he imagines. Now he has to save them both—from the inside out—or die trying…
Lee Child did not miss a step from one book to the next. In a sense, picking up right where he left off. Reacher is still drifting and still finding himself in a bit of trouble.
Of course, this starts right off with the action. The only downfall here is that there is a lull in the action for a bit. It’s not much, couldn’t be any more than forty to fifty pages, but there is a lull all the same. You get through it and you’re golden.
There was a change in the narrative for this one. Third-person gave the ability to show more of what was going on. There was more going on in this story than just Reacher accidentally stepping into a problem.
I loved this book. It has all the elements you need to keep the readers involved. I’m more pissed that I waited so long to read these books. If I didn’t have other books I am reading as well I would try to read all the Reacher books in a row.
Again, a definite read for anyone. Strongly suggest you make this your next book.
I don't mind admitting that I've read literally hundreds of books since I got a Kindle-mainly because living in the Czech Republic does limit the choice available in English language .I've got plenty of favourites and Lee Child's books are near the top of my ' to buy' list. Cost does come into the equation-sometimes one has to wait for the cost to subside. This was around eight dollars-ok by me. It's quite a lengthy read, so value for pleasure!
