One day or 24 hours or 1440 minutes. What would happen if the earth slowed, if a day suddenly started to last longer. The Age of Miracles is a captivating sci-fi teen story about the effect on humans and the planet, the slowing of earth has. The British weather makes part of the story relatable, in summer we seemingly have endless daylight, making it difficult to sleep and in winter have perpetual darkness making it impossible to get motivated. Seasonal effectiveness disorder is definitely real and definitely something I can struggle with, I couldn’t fathom 2-3 weeks of constant black to be met with 2-3 weeks of constant light.
