"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.

The author tries to give an impression of what the main character's thought process was like as a 12 year old but way over shoots his target and just makes her sound like she's 4. "Stay away from mama! You made mama cry!" *Eye-roll*
Then when Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru....I mean Mamma and Pappa... are killed in their desert home, she embarks on her journey of revenge.
The traitorous human bad guy actually says, "Well, well, well, what do we have here?". Then they capture her instead of just killing her on the spot, like he's some kind of James Bond villain, and when she awakens from her unconsciousness he then says "Well well, the sleeping beauty awakens". Jesus...talk about crappy dialogue. I just had to stop.
The author is also repeatedly guilty of "Telling" instead of "Showing". For instance, we're TOLD that she is arguing with herself about whether to attack or flee because she's out numbered, when the author could have SHOWN us in any number of ways.
This is the first e-book I've ever returned for a refund.
This is a post-apocalyptic, very gripping story about a long and bitter war between the remaining humans and their foes. Unlike most stories of this genre, there's hope, humour and help in the form of entertaining and engaging personalities (trying not to create any spoilers).
The characters are extremely well developed and you will feel their tragedies and triumphs as if you were there. This is a very hard book to put down. I suggest you take a day or two off from work. It's just that good.
Once lost technology, help from powerful allies and a stubborn refusal of humans to ever give up until the last drop of blood has been spilled makes for a sad but compelling story with just enough hope that one feels there maybe, perhaps, is a small chance for us after all.
There are also very modern and timely messages (metaphors) hidden in the text. It's not preachy but Evan feels we can do better as human beings especially when it comes to how we treat one another.
Knighthood starts a bit slow but builds to a satisfactory conclusion. As with most of Evan's stories there is always another chapter that is ready to unfold. I have found that his character development is quite satisfying and I am always amazed at how is protagonists are usually strong female characters. Knighthood is no exception. I am ready for the next chapter.
