Review

Overall I found the concept interesting, there is a flood (no pun intended) of zombie apocalypse books out at the moment but the idea of the rain being poisoned was different. The characters were likable and flawed and it was realistic in the events that befell them all, no super powers to save them here! (NetGalley)

Tense, scary, and high emotion, The Rain will have you on the edge of your seat and afraid to step outside. (dark-readers.com)

Distinctly British dystopian survival thriller. Great page turner, and I particularly enjoyed the very normal heroine after so many Katniss-lites. (The Bookseller)

A gripping- page turner with moments of surreal humour and great tenderness - not to mention dread as the raindrops fall. (The Bookseller)

Is not a novel about the English summer but a nightmare vision of the future where a single drop of rain can kill. (express.co.uk)

The Rain' left me speechless! It is such a unique thriller that was very fast paced - I would recommend this book to all teens as it is quite something out of the ordinary! (11horncastlea.wordpress.com)

I can't stop thinking about this book. Virginia Bergin's The Rain is unlike any apocalyptic novel I've read, mostly due to the hilarious and quirky but utterly believable narrator Ruby Morris. (ashleighonline.wordpress.com)

Utterly brilliant... loved with a passion. (lizlovesbooks.com)

The Rain is just wonderful, there is no instalove, there is just plain getting on with it with lots of shoplifting, attempting to drive and trying to survive whilst making sure you look nice! I really think you should read this book, you need to remember it is written from a 15 year olds POV, there is a lot of moaning and being selfish but it's funny, heartwarming, cringy, sad and terrifying, it is truly amazing. (redheatherduff.blogspot.co.uk)

The Rain was hilarious and really well written from the viewpoint of a teenager. (heyhollyjune.blogspot.co.uk)
