The Age of Miracles

The Age of Miracles Free read × 2 Karen Thompson Walker ☆ 2 Summary With a voice as distinctive and original as that of The Lovely Bones and for the fans of the speculative fiction of Margaret Atwood Karen Thompson Walker’s The Age of Miracles is a luminous haunting and unforgettable debut novel about coming of age set against the backdrop of an utterly altered world “It still amazes me how little we really knew Maybe everything that happened to me and my family had. 25This is yet another rating I really struggled with because though I can t say I really enjoyed it the novel is beautifully written in a very evocative way that makes you want to write down a uote every few pages But it comes back to that whole writing vs story matter that has stopped me from giving many prettily worded books a high ratingThe dystopian aspect of The Age of Miracles creeps in slowly and in a mostly subtle and non threatening manner Basically the normal 24 hour day begins to slowly lengthen first by minutes then later by hours Scientists from around the world appear on TV discussing this strange occurrence how could this have happened Why did no one see it coming Eventually subtle and weird changes begin to happen to do with the Earth s gravity birds dropping to the ground unable to fly cars colliding in accidents that would have easily been avoided beforeThis is one of those slow moving stories the major plot line is that these changes take place but the subplots that should be what happens when it does how this affects people s lives they are small and seem rather undramatic particularly for this genre that needs a little oppression some serious danger a very real threat I read this novel feeling like no one was in any real peril and that the most tragic event was that Julia the eleven year old narrator grew apart from her best friendI guess that the intention of the author was to show the subtle effects to lives when people experience fear and uncertainty Walker wanted to show how relationships break down and people change and she did do that But there s no real sense of catastrophe here no panic the fear they feel is a touch of nerves over what might happen than it is a spine chilling terror It s too gentle too subdued too focused on what I didn t care about The description would have you think that this is a science fiction kind of tale where the Earth s rotation starts going crazy hardly it s the day to day problems of a suburban Californian family and how badly they deal with their routine being disturbed Also the ending is highly unsatisfying and read like the bullshitting of someone who doesn t have the answers to the uestions they ve opened up Unless your idea of a good reading experience depends totally on the languagewriting I recommend

The Age of Miracles Free read × 2 Karen Thompson Walker ☆ 2 Summary Nothing at all to do with the slowing It’s possible I guess But I doubt it I doubt it very much”On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb Julia and her family awake to discover along with the rest of the world that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow The days and nights grow longer and longer gravity is affected the environment is thrown into disarray Yet as she struggl. Starts off well but uickly fizzles into a pretty benign coming of age story Also while I m not necessarily a stickler for hard science in my sci fi it seemed like the author was too lazy to research the actual effects of the Earth slowing and just ignores the basic laws of the physical sciences So much so that it really did take away from the story The whole apocalypse angle was incidental and unnecessary to the plot A bland story all dressed up with nowhere to go The Face on the Milk Carton coming of age story Also while I m not necessarily a stickler for hard science in my sci fi it seemed like the author was too lazy to research the actual effects of the Earth slowing and just ignores the basic laws of the physical sciences So much so that it really did take away from the story The whole apocalypse angle was incidental and unnecessary to the plot A bland story all dressed up with nowhere to go

Karen Thompson Walker ☆ 2 Summary

The Age of Miracles Free read × 2 Karen Thompson Walker ☆ 2 Summary Es to navigate an ever shifting landscape Julia is also coping with the normal disasters of everyday life the fissures in her parents’ marriage the loss of old friends the hopeful anguish of first love the bizarre behavior of her grandfather who convinced of a government conspiracy spends his days obsessively cataloging his possessions As Julia adjusts to the new normal the slowing inexorably continues. I loved The Dreamers so decided to read the author s backlist book While the apocalyptic theme is similar the execution is very different The earth s rotation has slowed and the lengthening days and nights affects everything from gravity crops tides and animals to human behavior Julia a 12 year old is the narrator and she must deal with a very altered uncertain world and future while also navigating the challenges of life as a tween I don t typically enjoy child narrators but Julia stole my heart and I was very taken with her The author writes beautifully with a uiet thoughtful prose that appeals to me It probably won t satisfy a fan who reads only apocalyptic and sci fi but I d recommend it for those who enjoy literary fiction coming of age novels that offers something just a little different
