"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.

“Because he’s family.” – Harry
You would think that would mean something, but the two families at the heart of this story, the Lintons and the Earnshaws, could not be more different. Ray Earnshaw works at the mine, but with the looming strike times are very hard. The Lintons are wealthy, cultured and seemingly have everything. Cathy is a young child when her father brings home, Heathcliff. Cathy’s mother, Shirley, is already worn out being a miner’s wife barely scraping by, so she is really not interested in an extra child. When she leaves, rather than going to school Cathy and Heathcliff spend their days together in the blue hills. Thus begins a relationship (obsession?) that will destroy the lives of so many around them.
Cathy just wants out of the Heights. She is tired of everything being dirty and shabby. One day, Cathy meets Isabelle and Edward Linton, whose father has moved the family here to shut down the mine, but Cathy just sees Edward as her way out. He has money and a future and she wants it. How many people will have their lives ended or destroyed by Cathy’s selfishness or Heathcliff’s obsession?
At the time, Wuthering Heights, got mixed reviews. The darkness and near evil were too much for some readers and captivating to others. To have two thoroughly unlikeable protagonists was and still is uncomfortable. Emily Brontë’s themes stand the test of time and this collaboration is a compelling tribute. Definitely recommend. Five stars.
