    1 thought on “The Long Rain

    1. A dark and tragic story of human failings. However, I could not put it down. I struggled between rooting for and against Jason.

    2. I had little motivation reading a story that's own jacket cover says the main character can't win. But I tried for about a fourth of the book, then did quick scan up to the last six or so pages, which I carefully read. The ending to the story was better than I imagined it could be, but it didn't inspire me enough to read the previously scanned pages.

    3. I'm glad that read this book without reading the synopsis. I suggest you do the same. What you can expect is a lot of information on how to make wine, which surprisingly doesn't terribly interrupt your read. I gave it three stars because I could not put the book down once I got past the halfway point. But my interest completely dwindled once I reached the resolution.

    4. The Long Rain by Peter Gadol is a great suspense novel that explores relationships, morals and guilt. Jason Dark is putting the pieces of his life back together. He’s moved to a family vineyard, opened up a small law practice in the rural town and is renewing relationships with his estranged wife and troubled son. But then things go awry. On a rainy night on a country road he accidentally runs over and kills a teenager. No one is around for miles and miles.What would you do?Maybe the answer is [...]

    5. A man returns to the defunct family vineyards and winery to lick his wounds after a divorce. The plot is extremely predictable - he decides to restart the winery, becomes a bit of a community leader, his wife and kid come back to him, bad thing happens to threaten it all (the flap tells what the bad thing is, a big mistake in my opinion, because it takes half the book to get to the bad thing), the man covers up the bad thing so that he can keep his happy life, and of course he pays for covering [...]

    6. It's never explained how a PhD art history student drives around in a sports car, but everything, everything, about the production of wine is explained in explicit detail. The vineyard is mentioned briefly in the blurb, but nowhere is there a hint that it dominates the text inside. The oenology talk, and the rest of the story, smacks you across the face with heavy-handed symbolism.Great if you want to learn to make wine, not so much if you were looking for anything else.

    7. Wow I mean the message of this book is really big. And I could ponder over all the hidden meanings and themes for days. Weeks even. You just really gotta read it to know. And I mean especially the end. It's not predictable, but it's real. It's real life and it's beautiful in a way. This guy. He's just going through a rough season.

    8. This is one of the most memorable books I've read and i might want to read again. I'm surprised I can never find any of his other books at Chapters.

    9. at first I wasn't too sure on the book and it did take me a while to get into the story but I really enjoyed the ending. It wasn't quite what I was expecting

    10. disturbing - walking in the shoes of a screw up guy. following his pathetic choices and incompetence while conveying the sense that he could be just a very jinxed guy next door.

    11. The characters are vivid. I felt a genuine affinity with their struggles.It's the only book by Peter Gadol I've read, but it won't be the last.Martin :)
