"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.

Then we meet Sergeant Dale Franklin, who observes the scene, realizes the heinous scene has gone viral, and almost immediately in Maktau, Kenya one Jacob Ngali comes into focus (his purpose in the story surfaces later) followed by reports of like incidents in Thailand and disparate regions around the globe. `A deadly viral trend is infecting teens across the globe, causing them to slaughter their loved ones and end themselves. In the face of indescribable blood lust and violence, an international team of America's finest and Britain's clandestine services must race to find the cause and stop the slaughter for good before it is too late.'
Few writers can use the coarse language to such descriptive and necessary extremes as David Graham. This is gory reading but the story is so perfectly paced with a `cast of thousands' that the reader begins to feel like the only one with remaining sanity. Perhaps not a book for everyone, but for those who love being challenged by gruesome absurdity written to a fare-thee-well, this book is a must. Grady Harp, December 14
The Screaming is a thriller that is fast paced and graphic (for those of you with weak stomachs, this might be one to preview first.) Both the murder-suicides are written in gruesome detail, but also the scenes inside the teenager’s heads depict an awful environment that leads to their own destruction, which is necessary but intensely sad. While well written, I still found myself having to willfully suspend my disbelief at some points, as it felt like a rehash of the whole cell phones will melt your brain urban legend that surfaces every so often, and the pop culture references, while amusing, made me wonder if the plot could be just a little more sonic… In short if you are pro-gay love and anti tech, this story will resonate (pardon the pun.) If not it’s still a good fast read, with insight into the British royal family that will make you wonder if they are both telepathic AND werewolves. And for those of you Americans reading this, yes the author is British. He did a good job, but as a native Missourian who knows how Kansas City operates, I pick up on these things, in addition to the British spelling and terms, so I’m afraid both Dale and Steve at best sounded like Captain Jack Harkness in my head. An apt comparison, now that I think about it!

I waited 2 days to read this book because it was too late to start it, and, according to the blurbs, it was pretty scary. Well, that's the way I read it anyway.Read more
