    1. This took me way too long to read, because it wasn't very good. It's not one of those books that makes you keep reading it. The beginning was the most interesting part.In a drought-ravaged world, a wacky rainmaker may or may not be responsible for turning things around too well - nonstop rainstorms that flood the earth. Some guy, our narrator, makes it to some kind of survivor's camp, but then leaves on an inflatable raft with a woman he meets, Sonya. She's a dancer, and although they were broug [...]

    2. I thought there were a couple parts thAt were pretty greet, but the majority of this book was quite DRY hahaha get it? It's about the flood happening again, get it? The end wrapped up incredibly quick too, I liked the ending but wish it woulda later longer. (My ex wife says the same thing :/) but I will say I loved the "tigers of jealousy" part and I'll type it out here. not a spoiler"Now the tigers of jealousy began to invade my mind, and I was too weak to keep them out.Company would have helpe [...]

    3. The cover, sadly, has nothing to do with the story, since it's set in England. Too Bad. Basically, it's a 'what if the Flood happened today' (well, a couple years in the future of 1958). It starts out pedestrian enough, though it's clear there's no science to be found at all the book implies it rained for about 2 years straight. First we see what's going on in London, then the main character eventually ends up on a raft with his new girlfriend and 6 others, and hilarity ensues sort of. I THINK i [...]

    4. When an attempt to cause rain during a drought in Texas goes a bit too well, it doesn't stop raining. Ever. Gradually the waters rise and society grinds to a halt. The bulk of the story involves a group of English people trying to survive the flood. The main character has a bit of a stroke of luck in my opinion, in the way he survives, but I guess someone has to in these situations! The second half of the book is more slow going and the behaviour of the characters becomes increasingly odd as the [...]

    5. Well, this time I picked out an old paperback from my box of 60s +70s science fiction pbs, and, even though I stayed up late to finish it ( fell asleep, then awakened, then struggled on to the end),I think this one would have been better left in the box.SPOILER ALERT--the picture on the cover had nothing to do with the story,except showing flooding, but it is the best part of the book. Mainly, it's about a bunch of people-all Brits-sitting around on a raft following a worldwide deluge--and nothi [...]

    6. The premise was interesting enough: Unstoppable rain. For a very, very, very long time. Cities were covered with water, leaving only those who could find a way to survive on some sort of water craft with limited supplies. And then the rain stops. And the door is wide open for a wonderful way to explore human nature at its most desperate. But, alas, the author did not deliver. The writing itself is technically good, but it lacked much substance. I was dying for some sort of connection to a charac [...]

    7. Wow, did those of you who rated this actually read it? I found the author's style superb and I couldn't stop reading this short book set in I believe England. A book that reveals who people are and what they become. The rain continues to fall, flooding everything uninhabitable and our way of life changes. What do you do? Do remain and wait out the rain? Do let go of your old life and set off for an adventure? Do you seek out people or isolate yourself in attempts to control everything? Do you le [...]

    8. I read this a long time ago but just recently picked up a copy of it. It's a post apocolyptic novel in which enduring rain leads to a world wide deluge. I don't remember a lot about it. It may be better than my 2 star rating, but here's how I arrived at 2. I know I didn't hate it or I would have remembered that, and I know I didn't absolutely love it or I would have remembered that. But since I've kept it on my list for this long I must have liked it OK. So there you have it.

    9. This is definitely a case of not being able to judge a book by it's cover. I have had this paperback a long time and finally got around to reading it. It was not what I expected. Spoiler alert, the cover is the best part of this book and it doesn't have anything to do with the story. This is more a social commentary about a group of strangers/survivors. I was very disappointed. It is not your normal disaster/end of the civilization story.

    10. As far as post-apocalyptic books are concerned: the plot's not great. But damn is the writing style entertaining. It's much more a book about the human condition, and how our judgements change to our circumstances.
