The Age of Miracles
Karen Thompson Walker
A slow-moving apocalypse brings mankind undone. Many of the changes are glacial, others at breakneck pace.
All viewed through 12-year-old Julia’s eyes, The Age of Miracles tells the story of a changed world as perceived by a young woman emerging slowly into adulthood as she matures physically, emotionally and through the forced changes imposed on her by a world in upheaval.
I forget where I saw the recommendation for this, but as a novel of an apocalyptic future, it takes a more sensitive, intellectual approach than many of its genre contemporaries.
I give it a 4/5.
