"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.

McMullen makes a lot of difficult-to-write stuff seem easy. This world-building is terrific: an alternate version of our modern society that is rich, vivid, and complicated, yet always clear and straightforward. McMullen knows how much to tell us, when, so we pick up a lot but never in painful bursts of exposition. For me the proof of successful world-building was my level of dissatisfaction when I'd finish reading and find myself back in junky old reality.
The characters are memorable, distinctive, and fun to spend time with - credible as people who just happen to have some very special powers and backgrounds. Different chapters present different points of view - a lot of them! - but I always knew whose head I was in. I liked every character in the series, but need to give special shout-outs to those low-rent thugs, the demons, and the ever-bickering darkside/lightside teens.
An important component of this series is the author's gentle sarcasm, which manages to poke fun without hurting feelings.
Cliches become cliches because they hold truths, and I mean it when I say: I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.
McMullen did it again. She managed to create a perfectly serious story while adding hints of humor that makes it a much fun read.
In this last installment, our friends need to find a way to stop the surge of discordant escaping the fissure from destroying their beloved city. I don't want to give spoilers but I can tell you that this single book has more twists than all of the others put together. McMullen outdid herself and I'm wondering how she can still be whole and not stricken down with one of the biggest headache in history.
Like the other books, each chapter is told from the POV of one of the main characters and if you missed Bogie in Friends Without Benefits, you'll be more than happy to know he's back and kicking. What can I say? I absolutely love this lesser demon. But to be honest, I also loved all the POVs without exception.
Probably yet the best installment in the series. If you liked the previous ones, you will love Frack You.
‘Frack You’ goes overdrive on humor and quirky dynamics. The fourth wall is almost totally demolished at some points. Tropes are used and admitted. Everyone gets their shining moment, and those moments are rooted in the type of humor that is the standard for the series.
And it all ends nicely. There are moments that look maudlin, and they are, in truth, but it doesn’t drag the story down. It’s a lull of somber tone that is the prelude to a solid resolution that feels highly satisfactory. Definitely recommend it and the entire series!
