"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.

In this book Unfrozen, an orbital prison (for women) from Earth is torn through a wormhole and crashes on an unknown planet. Lydia, the protagonist of the story, and seemingly the only survivor. has special body characteristics that made her a subject for experimentation on the ship, and her escape is somewhat liberating. But in this new world, she has to determine quickly what would eat her and what she must eat. She shows later that she has a tremendous appetite which must be satisfied to keep her energy up, as she steals away to find food and water. Lydia experiences wild beasts and a climate contrary to Earth; ice versus her warmth. She endures these and she discovers more challenges as the ice city she gets to seems uninhabited, except for Kai, a native who is fascinated by this strange creature from the sky.
They set about engaging each other. learning their language, and merging skills to defeat danger, and to restore the natives to their former life conditions. Only Lydia can save them but she must face and overcome physical obstacles, and adverse reactions of the restoration. She and Kai get closer together in learning and understanding each other, and he is sworn to protect her. In the process of facing many adventures and saving his tribe, Lydia and Kai fall in love.
I like the characters in this book. Lydia is strong, brave and loyal; a true heroine not killing as in the usual sense of war, but saving lives. They both see as ‘strange’ words and actions from the other, and perhaps designating it as such removes a lot of interpersonal friction. Kai has physical characteristics that will surprise you in their effects. With Kai’s constant promise to protect her, and her own resolution, she exposes herself to death in rescuing his tribe. Kai matches her strength with a lover’s tenacity, and the two make for a tense but warm story. The story is well written and told at a clip that holds the reader’s interest with wonder (and humor) at the safety of the heroine and the natives. In the end, it’s all Happily Ever After. Dangerous yet playful...
Kai is as fascinated by Lydia as she is by him. His planet has been frozen over and Lydia, with her warmth and special powers, is the only one that can save the natives, restoring them back to their old selves. This is a wonderfully written story; both characters see each other as strange and fascinating, taking out the discomfort and friction from their interactions.
They become strong allies, standing together when everything seems lost, and it looks like Lydia may not succeed in saving Kai and his planet. This is a really warm and toasty story that's so realistic and relateable even though it's sci-fi. A total must read.
