I had heard lots of talk about Karen Thompson Walker's The Age of Miracles. That is what prompted me to pick it up when I saw it sitting on the shelf. It is in interesting premise - Julia, a teenager, wakes up to find that the world is changing - drastically, in fact. The earth is slowing - days and nights are growing longer, gravity is also being affected, and it affects every part of her life. Even her mother, already not coping with the change well, contracts a disease related to the slowing of the earth. I have to say that it kept me intrigued - great idea for a book. But I have to admit that it didn't draw me in as much as I had hoped. The characters didn't grab me - even though the storyline is a great idea. Give it a whirl and let me know what you think - I love to hear what others think!
