"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.

Anyhow, this book was very emotional for me because of what both main characters, Jon and Morgan, experience in their lives. Character development is probably the author's strongest writing skill, although he's excellent just about every other literary technique he uses. I love the way he describes each setting and the characters' reactions in such a way that you feel like you are part of the story, like your witnessing the story unfold firsthand.
I don't want to give anything away (unfortunately, another reviewer got carried away and revealed too much) but I will say that you will laugh out loud in some parts (Heather and Chad scenes, specifically at the company picnic), get angry in other parts, and cry your eyes out as well.
I hope you all read this book, as well as the author's other books, because if not, you are missing out on incredible stories told in such detail, with real characters, in realistic situations that most of us can relate to in some way written by an author who seems to understand human emotions, human behavior, and justice better than most people and it shows in his story telling.
Enjoy and don't forget to leave your own review!
It's very well written in a style that's a bit different from a lot of the books I've read. You will have no trouble picturing everything this author is describing. Jon, the hero here, is a beautiful, caring, deep character you will love.
I don't want to give any spoilers. That would take away from this awesome read. So, I will just say, don't miss this beautiful, shockingly heart-wrenching story of real love and loss. Keep the tissues handy.
This is my first book by this author, but it certainly won't be my last. I would like to see more about how Jon's life turns out.
Additionally, I felt there were times when he included scenes that just didn't add a thing to the story, like the couple who were in Morgan's parents' beach house when she and Jon went there for a break. She'd just suggested to Jon they go there for some R and R because her parents NEVER rented it out. When they arrive, there's a family all snuggled in, who beg him not to tell the rental manager. I thought this meant there would be some further action around this, but no, it was just to set the scene for Morgan and Jon to spend a lovely night on the beach. Whatever!
Not a bad story, but easy reading that I'm glad I didn't pay much for!
