** Rain by Cynthia Barnett

You don’t have to live in the arid West to long for rain but Rain: A Natural and Cultural History can be somewhat disjointed, with some chapters lacking focus (why end the book on the author’s entirely missing the Indian monsoon?) and others defying logic (grunge music was successful in Seattle because of the rain? What?) My advice: if a chapter bores you, just skip to the next and feel refreshed.
