"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Unfortunately, the story never takes off. Perhaps the use of the first person narrative limited the scope of what could be told. The main character, whose name I can’t even remember, is lonely, rootless and really not very interesting. He spends a lot of his time defining words (“define rock”, “a hard substance, mineral...”) and giving names in his head to his interlocutors. The dialogue is flat. I felt nothing for the characters. The descriptions of the surroundings are repetitive. And nothing really happens. Oh well.
One good thing though, it is short, so at least it doesn’t require a lot of time to read it if you must.
Similar stories have been told before but this one goes into depth, painting the Convergence and addressing the questions philosophical and other raised by cryogenically storing humans ... Telling the tale in first person where that I doesn't interact much and most of it is thought based makes the story drag somewhat ... But still, a very good book
