Chronics revealing the link between the rain and the music, the erotism or the sacralization of the world, this essay is anything but a manual of meteorology.
Philosophical and poetic, this book an apology of the rain.
To achieve this, the author does not hesitate to use weapons of novelist : imagination and magic.
The tone is serious, and constantly nourished by historical, artistic and scientific works, which are likely, if not true.
Martin Page does a resolutely proselyte work : he wants to convert the reader to his passion for precipitation.
When you will know that rain is a « gentle monster », « carries with the genes of childhood » and « allow to fall in love without purpose », you stand up your eyes to watch the clouds.
This praise on the love of rain is as refreshing as sparkling.
