And the next Thing You Know . . . (Why You?) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
"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 unexpectedly loved this book, even with it's flaws.
I jumped into And the next Thing You Know . . . totally blind. I've never read anything from Chase Taylor Hackett before, and I didn't realize that it was even part of a series (Where Do I Start? is the first) when I requested it. And the next Thing You Know . . . started off a little weird for me as well, with its running internal-monologue sort of style. It was rambling, and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it at all.
And then I did. I really, really did.
This book is for all of you out there who like prickly MCs who start off hating each other. For people who like MCs who are all piss and vinegar and who have to WORK at each other. Over and over again. If you MCs who are all snark and bite and fire.
But then, underneath, you start to see hints of vulnerability. Just hints. And they make the whole thing worthwhile.
This book is in no way perfect. I forgave the MCs for some pretty crappy things they said (some questionable thoughts about whether men could rape one another - YES- and some other stereotypical, icky other things). There is also absolutely no sex. Not even fade-to-black. Sure, sex is implied, but it is implied like in a PG movie. Like they leave and go into a room and shut the door cut to the next day. However, I didn't mind that much.
When it comes down to it, though, this book gave me oodles and oodles of feels. I LOVED the snark and banter, and I ADORED the chemistry between the two MCs. I even got that tightness in my eyes and throat at the end of the story, I was so happy, and that tightness, that emotion, usually equates to 4+ stars in my book.
And the next Thing You Know . . . won't be for everyone, but people who connect to the writing style and the MCs will love it. Oh, and although this book is part of a series, it also works well as a stand-alone so don't be afraid to dive in. I was so happy that I did.

Seriously, I found myself laughing out loud (embarrassingly often) at all the clever situations Hackett contrives for these guys. Amazingly fresh and creative, I truly couldn't guess what would happen next and it was a blast.
Also, I've gotta say, as a NYC resident it is so much fun to read stories that take place here and it's clear Hackett enjoys this unique place as much as I do. As a transplant from Minnesota I could completely identify with Theo - we mid-westerners really do smile and talk to strangers and most New Yorkers are very welcoming and receptive when it happens. That brunch scene, the description of the tables basically on top of each other and all six diners having a conversation...! Some of the most interesting people I've met have been just waiting on line or riding on trains.
I've got to go back and read Where Do I Start?, I'm sure it's fabulous. Clearly you can read And the next Thing You Know . . . as a stand-alone since I just did, or read them out of order as I shall.
Huge kudos to Chase Taylor Hackett, great job!
