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

It is clear that the author has done his research, and has even included first-hand aviation knowledge in a subtle and entertaining manner. I’ve always wanted to learn to fly a helicopter, so those scenes were particularly exciting to me. I learnt a few bits and bobs about several different things that only added to the experience.
The characters are rather likeable, diverse, and well developed. They are very human, ever so slightly of a bumbling nature, and easy to relate to as mortals. I’m also pleased to learn that some of them have made it into his next novel, Harry.
It was a great caper all the way to the end, with several surprises thrown in for good measure. The conclusion was rather fun, and a little unexpected. Anyone who enjoys a modern, thrilling adventure novel will love Stansfield’s Fishing for Stones.
There are a lot of characters, but each one is carefully introduced, and by the end, you feel like you really know them all. Steve and Andy are probably the most relatable, the regular guys, but most of the characters are intriguing, each in his own right. The technical details were a little much, especially the war scenes in the beginning, but that's just my personal taste because I'm more interested in the main plot and relationships between people. Others would find the details fascinating, I'm sure.
The book is well-written, and when it all comes together, you can't help but have a smile on your face. I look forward to Stansfield's next one.
It kept it up to the end. I'll be looking out for Glen's second effort. Enjoy.
