AGE OF MIRACLES

KAREN THOMPSON WALKERage

Something is wrong. The earth’s rotation is slowing down. And it is causing a myriad of problems. Do people use clocks or the sun to tell time? The tides are increasing. People are getting sick. The earth’s magnetic fields are affected. Gravity is increasing; birds that can no longer fly are dying. People are scared; friendships breakdown.  Whales are beaching themselves at unprecedented rates. But young  people are still falling in love and in lust.

An interesting dystopian novel that is also a coming of age story.

I did have problems with the faulty science. Gravity is a factor of mass not rotation. There are other scientific issues as well. But it is well written and a good read. Ultimately an allegory of global warming.
