"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.

With a professional, conceptual editor, this story could sell well for the author. VanDyke, takes a new twist on the negative that can arise from positive intent. He has taken care to remove more "cockroaches" (ubiquitous typos, cut & paste, and grammar errors) than most authors. Yet the book could use some work in character depth as well as follow through (the whys) on plot lines that both continue and end .Support of alternate storylines could yield greater depth.
The main characters were smart, well-meaning; likeable people, who then became push-overs to Daniel's leadership. When I imagine the possible concerns of thoughtful scientists, family men and women, and veterans, I think that more characters than Skull might have split off to follow their own vision, complicating the story later on. With the pushback against GMO foods in today's world, it seems unlikely that so little resistance to the plague's invasive modification of the human body/psyche would arise -- even for the best of reasons. A plot is often enriched by the diversity of action taken by the "good guys."
As a woman and an author, I thought VanDyke's female characters looked a lot like caring men. A woman's hand might flesh-out the female characters and appeal to more women readers.
I'm confused by a review that found religion unnecessary to the plot (though in his defense, the reviewer has read later books). Humans exhibit innumerable beliefs that affect their choices. People of faith may honor deity, religion, atheism, supernatural forces, myth, truth, science, good vs.evil, the unknown, love, etc., while non-spiritual people find other decision-making priorities to steer their lives. Diverse beliefs make for richer story.
Overall, I recommend this book as a well-paced, suspenseful and creative addition to books available on-line. I hope to review later books as I finish them. This author is worth another read!
There is action on multiple fronts in this book, an agreement by some old team members, and some truly interesting characters. The Plague itself leads to a lot of discussions by the characters. Moral issues are argued, as well, concerning the benefits/consequences of waging war with it.
Realizing this plague virus would help countless people Danny (DJ) and Elise try and spread the virus to the population but the government and the private company working on the virus try to stop them at every turn and deem the group as terrorists. There was an unexpected (but rather enjoyable) twist at the end of the story which I'm not going into detail because I don't want to ruin the surprise. The story is told well, made very believable, and I'm looking forward to reading the next installment of the story.
On a side note the author is very professional. I had an earlier comment (which later I removed) about finding errors in the book and the author sent me an updated version for free. I wasn't expecting a response like that. Most of the time things I've edited have never received a comment from the author.
The further I got into The Eden Plague (and the follow-on books) the more I got interested in the many other aspects of the novels. This is an intriguing series that I do recommend. Just ignore the jarhead bravado.
