"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.

The short version is that the heroine is an idiot. She spends the ENTIRE book not knowing what to believe about anyone or anything, even when presented with plenty of evidence to make the determination, particularly toward the end of the book. At the place where I abruptly stopped engaging in the story she had a long-lost someone return from her past with all sorts of information and she still, even then, couldn't pull herself together. It was utterly unbelievable. It was one of those moments where the author wanted a specific ending, and in order to facilitate that ending she forced her heroine into idiocy. Nobody, absolutely nobody, is that. Stupid. I did finish the book, but the last 20% took me 4 days, and was met with a lot of annoyance and derision.
I give this story 4.5 stars. This is a well-written, full of historical facts, interesting, and so-called "clean" story. The king is a very likable individual; Eleanor, at 18, is good, young, but so naive! Eleanor does not believe one thing told to her by the king, or anyone else in Wales. Its very annoying! She is continually told not to look at everything so black and white! "There was no right or wrong, only the slippery gray muck in between."
I admit I was wanting her to behave more mature, which is probably unrealistic of me! The story is what it is! I found it be to a good read and I will definitely be reading more by this author, Julie Daines.
