"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 loved just about every part of this book and think I’ll read it again pretty soon. It was a very short read. You can probably finish it during a long lunch break or siesta if you’re lucky enough to have those. I didn’t find that to be a problem for this title. It honestly made its point in its eighty-five pages. I sat up late one night reading til about three in the morning, laughing like a madman. I honestly don’t have any negatives unless you count that this book has made me a little self-conscious of my own writing. Good books always tend to do that though so I just need to work on my humor more and read more good books.
What I liked:
+Scary possible future
+Interspersed with humor
+Clever ideas and imaginative world
+Outlandishness grounded in reality
+Zombies are different
+JADEN WINSLOW: ZOMBIE ROCK GOD
What might turn you off:
-Short book length (though the pacing does feel good)

It might feel that way because the author put everything in it: the beginning of the virus, how it spread, what happens as it spreads, what happens after and so forth. We even have some kind of an overview of the 'after'. I have to admit I'll have to re-read that last part because I'm not too sure of what it implies, however, it didn't change my opinion of this book: I loved it.
McMullen presents her story through the eyes of everyone key to the outbreak, from the responsible who caused it, to the innocent caught in the middle and she uses panoply of styles to do it too, which clearly shows how talented she is.
I'm not usually a fan of short stories, but it didn't feel as if I was reading one. You have to read it to understand.
Christina McMullen has produced a very fascinating series of interwoven tales that follow a single catastrophic decision through to it's apocalyptic conclusion. We watch through the eyes of a number of important, and mundane people as they try to uncover the truth of what is happening around them and then survive it. The occasional news clip, or news article just ads to the atmosphere, and reveals a lot about the nature of those going through the events. I hate to say it, but a lot about our current state of affairs, and humanity itself is revealed.
This book definitely deserves it's five star rating
