The Age of Miracles

“Later, I would come to think of those first days as the time when we learned as a species that we had worried over the wrong things: the hole in the ozone layer, the melting of the ice caps, West Nile and swine flu and killer bees. But I guess it never is what you worry over that comes to pass in the end. The real catastrophes are always different—unimagined, unprepared for, unknown.”
― Karen Thompson Walker 

(Devo dizer que tem sido uma desilusão este livro. Vou a meio, pelo que ainda tenho esperança de vir a valer a pena.)
