"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 wrote it well, and made it believable to even be a non-fiction piece. It was a little on the lacking side, in the sense that this woman's life was just outlined, there wasn't much of an apparent conflict and life went by smoothly. The later years put some strain on the life being lived, and that's when my interest was most grabbed.
It's a good introduction to this author, I think. I'm sure given more words to work with and space to expand a story, I'll enjoy more of this author's work in the future.
It's a simple story but a touching story to read. The author didn't go into a lot of details of Anne's life situations. Like the title of the book says, it was a matter of just looking back at the life she lived. It made me think about my life and looking back at how fast life passes us by. And missing the people that are no longer with us.
I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a short story to read. It will make you look back at your life and how things change through the years..
In this story the author shares a look at her life as she conveys the emotions of select times, places, people and events.
Comparisons of her childhood to present day are exemplified in remembering the games played so long ago. Beautifully crafted continuance of her story reveals parallels of her life to the following generations as they too grow, marry, have families of their own and consistently value family supporting and encouraging one another.
Dealing with the life altering event of the death of her beloved husband was revealed in a beautifully shared overview of loss, grief, family support, reaching out with others to survive. I do not say overcome or recover from such a loss. It seems she survived and learned to go on healing as much as possible.
I feel she will always have that spot in her heart that aches as she misses the husband who had been one with her through so much of life even as she finds joy and appreciates the love and concern of her family.
This is a touching short story concisely presenting a lot of heart. It leaves me wishing the author all the best in life and hope for happiness in what ever life provides in the future.
