"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.

Each receives a call from a historian who has discovered they are descendants of four men who buried a safe in Richmond, Virginia at the beginning of the twentieth century. Each has a key that’ll unlock the safe and reveal the secrets hidden inside.
The story moves along after just a brief introduction to the characters until mayhem ensues and the chase is on. One of the four has an agenda of their own which becomes compounded by an interested party.
For me the middle of the story dragged as the four characters went about their regular lives after opening the safe without much thought to why a secret had been buried and why they were selected to reveal it. Then they are off together to discover that secret. And what a secret it is.
The ending, though sad in one regard, was satisfying and left wide open for a sequel. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Quite honestly, the characters failed to peak my interest. In the middle of the first chapter, I realized I did not care about them or why they should find a stupid key. Perhaps it was a plot failure or maybe Maruska's writing style is not for me.
In any case, I have decided it was not worth torturing myself anymore. This book is officially crossed off my list.
On the bright side, reading the comments for this book have provided endless amusement. Thank you kind strangers!
