"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.

I will concentrate on this book: I found Lizzy to be so out of character as to be almost unrecognisable. There was little in the way of impertinent speech, but much in the way of lamentation and misery. She spends so much time fighting back tears and actually holding her breath, it is a wonder she survives to meet Darcy.
Oh, she definitely has a lot on her plate with a prostrate mother and (for a fair portion of the book) an absent—rather than just indifferent—father, but her behaviour is very unLizzy-like.
The author is very big on informing us about every little move the characters make in an effort to set the scene, eg: Elizabeth squinched her eyes shut and pursed her lips. I like to get inside a scene and read these little asides, but so many of them in this story were difficult to picture the characters we know and love doing, or were just plain silly.
The Lizzy we know is graceful and ladylike...this Lizzy is clumsy and often, most unladylike. For example, her favourite chairs are footstools, and she plops down onto them in a most unladylike fashion. Her clothes are always getting snagged on things and she often stumbles and has to catch onto something to save herself. Certainly not the girl with the light and pleasing figure who drew the eye with her easy playfulness.
The characters of Jane, and Mr Bennet are much as we know them, and Kitty starts off as Lydia's pawn, but improves out of sight when she begins to receive the attentions of her older sisters, Lizzy in particular. Mary too, benefits from being recognised by Lizzy, other than as someone to make fun of. Yes, Lizzy is often unkind at the beginning of the book. Lydia is Lydia still, untamed, unabashed,, wild, noisy and fearless. And totally, totally selfish!
The very end of the book finds Lizzy and Darcy meeting up in Longbourn's woods: Darcy is on foot and is lost and he too, uncharacteristically gets his coat snagged on a bramble. Even if Darcy wanted to stretch his legs after a long carriage ride, why would he wander into unknown woods, and not stick to the road! It seems as if Darcy has a very poor sense of direction.
I have bought the third book in the series, thinking (hoping really) that the characters become more IN-character, but alas: I have just read a review which says the third book in the series is the worst! Woe is me!
