"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The truth about the Handlers and who/what they are? Absolutely ridiculous. I don't know, maybe it was the way it was written, but I literally laughed out loud and said "Are you SERIOUS??" while rolling my eyes. I'm not sure if it was meant to be scary, or thrilling, but it certainly didn't come off that way.
You're left with so many unanswered questions, and the history of the Handlers is never explained or explored. You're just told a few facts about their past on Earth, then nothing more. Judging by the ending, it seems the author has set this up for a sequel, probably turning this into another trilogy or series which seems to be all the rage right now. If that's the case, then I'll never find out what happens as I do not plan to read anything else from this author. Recommend maybe for tweens, but that's about it.
WOW I was mind blown about 60% in....I so was not really expecting it to be like that.
Before I get into the review I have to say there was a part in the book that bothered me a bit. There are camera's everywhere. Yet when Lainy and Cole are discussing family they are talking freely like nothing is there. To me that seems weird as it seems Cole is very observant about what he says around the cameras. Though this little thing won't affect my review of 5 wineglasses!
The world as we know it is no longer the same. It seems that cities are divided into quadrants and there is a curfew. You can not be out at night though during the day it seems to be a Utopia world.
Cole is a normal teenager or at least to normal as you can get to one. When his best friend goes missing Cole along with his best friend's brother go out to search for him. What they uncover is nothing that they would believe actually goes on.
There is a world underneath their world a world that no one is who they truly seem and you have to fight to move on.
Cole will not go down easy and we see how he truly tries to do the right thing even if that means leaving those he has gotten close to behind.
The title of this book says it all Handler. What could that mean exactly? Well you have to read the book to find that out.
I literally read this book in one sitting and at the end I was wanting more! Now I have read this author's work before when she co-authored with someone else and I loved her writing then. To be able to read another book by her and love it shows the talent she has.
As far as characters went the only one that truly got on my nerves was Lainy she felt way to clingy in my opinion!
The rules of the above ground socity is pretty crazy like one dessert per week! My question is how if they know you have more than one?
Now if you like a bit of sci-fi mixed into the world of dystopia than pick this book up! I think you will really enjoy it!
Looking for a whole new take on dystopian end of the world where humanity is on the line? Look no further. What begins as a cool utopian world quickly takes a few turns toward something totally different & engaging. We’re talking layers upon layers of action packed discoveries. My mind leapt from one possibility to the next as the scenarios played out. Thawer was a step ahead the entire time though, & I was impressed.
The characters are not dull or ordinary. Their world a complete mystery to be unveiled. Even when it seems to be piecing together we are diverted with another twist. And...when the truth begins screaming from the dwinn tops you will want to listen, & follow to the end. Where I was begging for any little glimpse of what is yet to come.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!Handlers is a must read!!! And I will be on the lookout for its sequel!
Handler is centered around a post apocalyptic world, but we soon find out that everything is not as it seems. I have mixed feelings about the main character Cole. There are times when he comes across as a little weak, but then there are other times when he shows that he can be strong - in the end, he did what he needed to do, so major props for that. It wasn't an easy decision to make at all.
The mystery in this story is written very well. I spent a lot of this book confused, but it wasn't in a bad way. There is a lot going on, with a lot of secrets, so it was hard to gauge who you could trust and who was telling the truth. As things started to come out, it made more sense. There were a few instances where my mouth dropped open in shock because something happened that completely took me by surprise. I also like that there was a little bit of romance and some humor throughout the book as well.
My only real complaint is that, to me, it felt like the story wasn't finished and there was more to tell. Just when everything was starting to come out and fit together, the story was over. I don't know if there is going to be a second book or not, but I was left with a lot of questions about what was going to happen next.
All in all this was a really engaging, mysterious book that is sure to take you for a ride!
