Enumerates an unnamed narrator's encounters with that most quotidian of subjects: rain. Mourning her recent disastrous breakup, the narrator must rebuild a life from the bottom up. As she wakes each day to encounter Vancouver's sky and city streets, the narrator notices that the rain, so apparently unchanging, is in fact kaleidoscopic. Her melancholic mood alike undergoes subtle variations that sometimes echo, sometimes contrast with her surroundings.

Mesmerizing vignettes chart inner and outer weather over the period of a messy break-up. I loved this.

Ugh. Depressing and annoying character who neglects everything but herself. She interfered with the authors' beautiful prose about rain.
