"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.

From the Back Cover
In the blink of an eye.
Everyone except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not a single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Gone, too, are the phones, internet, and television. There is no way to get help.
Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day.
It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen and war is imminent.
The first in a breathtaking saga about teens battling each other and their darkest selves, gone is a page-turning thriller that will make you look at the world in a whole new way.

I enjoyed the narrator and thought he did a great job. The one thing I didn't enjoy was how he kept saying "he said or she said". It became a little repetitive and was unnecessary because he voice for the other characters was spot on and easy to tell who was talking.
Overall I love sharing this series with everyone. I was thinking about who I recommend this series for and it turns out everyone who enjoys to read. I sat down and counted all the paperbacks I have bought and given out as gifts and it turns out 13 copies I have purchased. I do enjoy the new covers especially the green one. I will continue spreading the word about the Fayz because I need more people to talk to about it.
"Fear: A Gone Novel" is the fifth book in Michael Grant's Gone Series and while I confess there are times when I've thought the series has dragged on long enough by the end of this book I realized I don't want the series to end. By now readers who have read the entire series care about these characters (or hate some of them) and Grant uses this to his full advantage - he does not hesitate to kill characters off. In many ways, this seems like one of the gorier books in the series (although all of them were pretty gory). Grant gives readers their first extended look at life outside of the dome and this works brilliantly in several ways. For one thing, it shows how parents (and the government) react to what is going on. Even though there has been many deaths of characters I care about in the series, the scenes with the parents reminded me (again) that they are still children and many children won't be coming home (if they ever do make it home). Also, if they do make it home, Sam, Astrid, and the others will never be the same. The glimpses outside the dome also show what happened to the few children who managed to escape. I never thought I'd feel sorry for Diana but, to me at least, she is a sympathetic character in this book. Grant walks a fine line between horror and camp in a few scenes with Diana and her baby - it was almost humorous until you realize how brilliantly Grant portrays Diana's fragile state of mind.
"Fear: A Gone Novel" is another wonderfully creepy book in the Gone Series.
