I hardly ever get the chance to read things that bring me to tears with emotion, I usually find myself on adventures and falling in love with characters so it was a pleasant change of pace for me reading The Boy Who Loved The Rain. Gerard Kelly is an exquisite writer, the imagery, emotion and characters were beautiful thought provoking and completely enthralling.
The novel is about Colom a teenage boy who is having nightmares of his sister drowning before his eyes, the dreams torture him and secrets are being whispered to him, but he just can't grasp them, let alone understand them. Being a mother myself the thought of a young man being in so much emotional pain really got to me and the way Gerard portrayed this was captivating.
The underlying theme to the book was rain, yes rain, such a simple natural thing, how can such a thing be a theme in a book well it can, it's done in a way that leaves you curious but yet so enlightened. I really enjoyed the quotes about all rain at the beginning of each chapter that was really a nice touch to have.
Overall The Boy Who Loved The Rain is a beautiful, emotional novel of secrets, deception and starting over, its wonderful, captivating and well worth a read.
