In The Age of Miracles, some of the ideas disagree with my own. If the end of the world was coming I would not be continuing through life normally, I would start taking risks and experiencing all the things I had one day hoped to. In the book, the government asks people to continue as normal however, I could never do something like this. I find it interesting that the main character was willing to continue through life normally. The main character is only in seventh grade so to her the world is a very small bubble, however, she will soon reach the age where her mindset starts to change and I am interested to see how much she questions the world around her. Also, I'm not very religious so I can't relate to the Christians and Mormons gathering together. Altogether, I think the book is very interesting and am excited to read more.
