"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.

Having never read any previous works by this author, I didn't know what to expect. I can live with some editing oversights, and even expect it when reading a freebie. However, the amount of grammatical errors in this book was atrocious. Surely the author could have had a friend proofread it or something if the cost of a professional was out of reach. The plethora of mistakes was overwhelming and extremely distracting.
I'm not talking about misplaced commas or a few misspelled words here and there. I'm talking about frequent errors, sometimes multiple errors on a single page! I can't imagine that most of these mistakes wouldn't have been caught by the most basic spelling and grammar check program. For example, their vs. they're, employ vs. employee, etc. Bidet was misspelled as baday. In several spots words were just completely left out, leaving me trying to take a guess at what should have been there to make a complete sentence. I could go on and on.
If you can make it past all that, you'll find a story about a girl with about as much depth as a kiddie pool. Seriously, this girl was quite possibly the dumbest, shallowest, most immature heroine ever! She was supposed to be 18 or so, but had the mentality of a 13 year-old on her best day. I can't think of a single appealing quality that she possessed.
As far as the two main male characters in the story are concerned, their characters were so poorly developed that they felt like complete unknowns, even at the end of the story. Supposedly, she's in love with Blaise, after some rather forward groping at a party where she lays eyes on him for the first time. Next thing you know, she's sleeping with this totally random stranger and professing her love! Give me a break!
Roman is the secretive boss. I think his character was supposed to come off as elusive and sexy. Instead, he just seemed like an inappropriate creeper that would never answer a question. Nope, not appealing, just infuriating!
Add in frequent giggles, insta-love, lukewarm sex scenes and a whole lot of poor decisions, and you've got the gist of this story. The big mystery to me was how this poor girl had managed to survive to this point at all. In comparison, the plot twists and big reveal at the end seemed far more obvious!
The only reason I'm giving this book a second star is because the premise of the story actually had some potential. It was just so poorly executed that it would need a complete rewrite, along with new, appealing characters to be worthwhile. Any mild curiosity I might have regarding how this series will play out is completely overshadowed by my feelings of dread at the prospect of having to read another book that is so poorly written.
way to go Ashley can't wait for the next one.
