The Age of Miracles

The Age of Miracles - Karen Thompson Walker this book was very interesting but fell a little short for me. There wasn't a real direction with the story, more of just a snapshot of life with no real story movement or progression of a plot. I did enjoy seeing a girl who wasn't given everything in the story just cause she was the main character, though.

For most of the story I was so distracted by all of the symptoms of The Slowing, wondering if that is really what would have happened. I wonder how much research the author put into what would really happen.. if I would have known that she had done her research beforehand (maybe in a Author's Note or something) I think I would've been able to let go and enjoy the story for what it was more.

I found it odd that the ending ended in such a random time/place. Nothing was resolved and people were still moving through time. The book had no plot to really resolve and because of that the ending just felt like it was placed randomly.

I did enjoy it though, and I identified with Julia's voice a lot
