First of all, why is everyone freaking out? No disasters have been caused by the slowing yet! I just don't understand why this is happening. I feel like this could potentially happen in real life, but at a slower rate. It IS happening, and HAS been. The Earth slows down 4 centimeters a year. this has been happening for BILLIONS of years! That's a whole lot of centimeters! There was some false information about certain religions... I really think this is a cool book, even though there are some flaws.
