"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.

Set in Cape Town, South Africa, and centred around the world of theatre, the story stays true to the modern African entertainment scene. I could relate with the story and the setting. The main characters are not stereotypical as the author takes an angle that’s not often explored – i.e. a powerful, financially stable woman who has power to make or break the hero's future.
The characters are the strongest aspect of this story. Both the hero and heroine are well-rounded with strong backgrounds that form the foundation of their personalities and aspirations. They celebrate modern-day South Africa without being cliché or whitewashed. They have vices that add to the story and help the reader appreciate their growth over the course of the story.
The cover has an artsy appeal and a very African character, which will attract a certain crop of African readers. However, it does not convey romance and may, therefore, be passed up by non-African romance readers.
*Disclaimer: I received an eARC and voluntary choose to review this book.*
Andile is a hardworking, kind man who does the best he can. He is also handsome and can have any girl he wants, yet he seems to be holding out for something special. He was a pleasure to read. Innocent in a way but also very swoon-worthy. Thuli was a great character! Deep with some secrets, but yet endearing. Both these characters were complex and owned it!
The story is set in Cape Town, and the author doesn't shy away from very South African traditions, words and customs. It feels as real as it can get, and I could see myself in many of the locations.
If you are looking for a romance where the man isn't the successful one and sweeps a woman of her feet by buying her luxuries, then this is your book. Strong female charactes that is kick-ass! Love a good reversal of the tropes we see so much these days.
