The Age of Miracles is an interesting combination of stories. On one hand, it's a pretty crazy apocalyptic story, and has some of the bleakness of Nevil Shute's On the Beach. On the other, it is a depressing coming of age story. The writing is slow-paced, but the creeping dread that pervades through the book makes this slow ride worthwhile.
