Scattered Screams: (The Disruption, Book One) Kindle Edition
"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 my comments you probably think I didn't like the book. That would be wrong. I did like the story but I didn't love it. Perhaps in the sequel the author can fix some of the problems I have identified and some others that existed as well. I hope so because I would like to read the sequel. All i all this was a good read, an enjoyable read for the most part, pretty well edited, with few noticeable errors. I think the author missed an opportunity in this book to make real people out of his characters. There were many places he could have added a paragraph of descriptive terms about the characters which would have enhanced the story. Still I recommend the book for people of all ages. There is no "obligatory sex" involved so it could be a tweens book as well as a teens book with ease.
I loved it, and the twist at the end ... cannot wait for the next installment.
Want to know more about what the book is about, read the first few chapters. :-)
The idea presented in the story is absolutely wonderful and I love where it begins to go, shaping itself and you're right along for the ride, like a choose your own adventure book with the characters- begging the question: what would you do in this situation if you weren't sure your family survived during an apocalyptic event? Would you make the same choice as the characters? Stay in groups or head out alone?
The idea is fascinating and I love where the author is going with this narrative. However, there are a few times in the book - where I question the point of certain conversations between characters: what's so important about discussing Jordan's and Nike's? I'm from NY myself but I think that would be the last thing on my mind while I'm trying to outrun creatures. In those instances, the narrative seems to come to halt for something so trivial and unrealistic. At other points, the writing can become erratic in a way that will make you question what just happened and there is no answer that you can stumble upon- like when did a human grow wings and Why? But if he keeps flowing with the story, tighten up his writing a bit in the next part of this story- this is a very interesting read and I look forward to the next title in this series!
