"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 first page you’re immediately drawn to Fallon. She’s a recovering addict and struggling the same way many of us do with trying to stay away from the temptations that make us feel good or more like ourselves.
Fallon is an extremely talented drummer but her addiction became so inter-weaved with her lifestyle that is nearly destroyed her. She was lucky to have an old family friend to help her create a new persona that ultimately saved her life. She drives herself every day to become Fallon Dunbar and leave Fae Dunham in the past with the chaos that was her life but can she really just split herself in two? Will her closing herself off from her true self enable her to heal?
Her family life leaves much to be desired. Fallon lost her police officer father at a young age and never forgave her mother for marrying her father’s partner. She even suspects they were having an affair prior to her dad’s death. She buried herself in music and was fortunate enough to see success. I also believe that lead to her eventual down fall. There were so many times while reading this book I just wanted to reach out and hug this girl. She couldn’t see how strong she was in being able to survive and persevere where many others have collapsed under that kind of turmoil.
When she meets Dane she’s immediately attracted. What’s not to like about a man that works full time, plays in an up and coming band and is easy on the eyes? To top it all off he’s a sensitive and strong man beneath the rocker exterior with his own pain. He doesn’t shy away when Fallon unloads her situation on him during multiple hang out sessions. He’s the full package, even if the package is damaged but then again aren’t we all damaged in our own way?
The chemistry between these two characters makes the pages sizzle. You feel the heat! This is a couple you want to see last the test of time. It was very much like reading about friends you see together that make you smile with how in tune they are with each other. The passion and intensity of both people just explodes when they come together. It does seem fast in the beginning but not for long, you begin to see there was never a chance for these two people not to collide.
The musically aspect of the story is written in so well you forget that the story is about two rockers, or at least I did from time to time. I just saw the two people. It killed me to have to set the book down at night or when my lunch break was over. Fallon and Dane kept running through my head demanding I finish their story and I couldn’t let them down!
One thing that hit me in the story that made me stop and reach out to the author was her reference to the book Loving Mr. Daniels. I happened to download that very book a few months back off amazon for free and fell in love myself. I’d never known anyone else to read it and thanked the author for actually referencing a book I was familiar with as well.
I highly recommend this book to everyone over the age of 18.
The most important things in books for me are the writing style and the heroine. If I cannot connect with either of those things, that's usually not a good book, or even a DNF for me. Luckily, this wasn't the case in here, and I really enjoyed reading about Fallon and Dane.
I knew about the blurb that it involves drugs, alcohol and bad decisions, so I knew that it won't be easy on me emotionally. But every once in a while, I like to read deep, angst filled stories. If the book is well written, characters in those kind of stories can develop a lot, and the story is real and believable because of the pain and hard things the H/h are going through alone and together too.
And Hysterics was written in dual point of view, which is my favorite too.
I loved the back and forth between Dane and Fallon, I loved both of their characters, the storyline and everything in between.
The Hysterics was my first book by Kristen Hope Mazzola, but it sure won't be the last.
The characters are troubled musicians with dark pasts that seem to haunt them. They however can't help but be drawn together making you want to believe in love at first sight and fate. Thru their short time together in this book, so many obstacles are thrown at them. Although their pasts try to over take them, together they fight thru. I love how the past was covered just as well as the present. It really made me feel connected to the characters and to understand their struggles.
I really liked a lot of other characters that you are introduced too. They have good personalities and many of them seem like their might be a lot more to them then what the surface shows. Also, at the very end a lot happened all of which left you begging for more. Wanting to know why? Why had all this happened and what will come from it. I really hope that the author considers making this into a dark series. I see so much potential and an endless number of book possibilities from following the characters.
I highly recommend this book and can't wait to read more by Kristen Hope Mazzola!!
Fae and Dane are so well written, their characters alone are trying to find their way in life but she gets a second chance in life, when Fae gives up who she was in her past is when their paths crossed and the chemistry was strong. Music was deep in their souls and the passion led them into a romance that was not always easy with her trying to hide who she was in her past and trying to stay on the lowdown off the radar in the music world.
Grab this up enjoy the rock romance with a few unexpected events that will lead you to fall in love with these characters
