The Age of Miracles - Karen Thompson Walker I found The Age Of Miracles a difficult book to drop into a slot. It’s a matter-of-fact coming-of-age story, seemingly poised to attract both adult-fiction and YA reading audiences, set in an environment that’s familiar and unrecognizable at the same time...and Walker seems content to leave many of the mysteries of that environment unexplored. The “slowing” is somehow a both catalyst and a mere backdrop, and isn’t explained or developed anywhere near enough to call the novel “science fiction,” but I can see how it might be shelved there. Its protagonist/narrator is clearly several years beyond Julia’s age during the events of the story; it’s not stated just how much later it is when she relates them, but the voice is much closer to adult than child.
