"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.

I must admit that I didn't expect to be hit with so much political drama between kings and queens and princes and princesses. Almost all the relevant characters are royalty. The romance between the two main characters felt forced and heavy at first, and I just couldn't emotionally invest in it. Romance and marriage politics are personally not my favorite subject matter (I'm here for the unicorns and magic, which, to be fair, there is plenty of in this book), but despite this I still kept looking forward to my next chance to pick this book back up and read for hours when I did. In the end, it's not too much of a detriment to one's enjoyment of the story even if it isn't something they prefer to read.
As far as writing itself is concerned, the one issue that stood out to me is how much characters 'grumbled' and 'paled' throughout. The frequency was enough to take me out of the story for a moment when it happened, but otherwise the writing flowed smoothly and was nice and easy to read. The writing was at it's best when magic is involved - whenever the main character used the meditative magic known as the Arts, I truly got lost in the story. The description of magic is, in my opinion, the strongest part of this book and very well done.
In conclusion, this book is a good read when you want a little escape from the modern world!
And, of course, the unicorns! Who doesn't love unicorns? A great escape from reality book.
The tale grabs you by your shirt collar as you are abruptly catapulted into an awful nightmare.
I liked how each chapter was told through different characters and how they intertwined to bring the story to life.
It was hard to put down!
I’m reading it again!
