    One thought on “The One-Way Rain”

    1. Had a hard time getting into the book because I thought the premise was so incredulous But the current events of Gaza, and the history of Apartheid and the Civil Rights Movement re oriented me What the people in SAPID deal with on a daily basis is not much different than the examples I just named And for a dystopian read it hits rather close to home So let s get into itWhat I liked The book was at it s best when it spoke from Lore s perspective Lore was the most fully developed character and it [...]

    2. 2013 Brilliant book In an America gone wrong in 2023 there s exists an apartheid state Right here in New England, people of color are living in an inland forced work camp area, making the products the rest of us consume Back on the other side of the wall advertising, now called Pop Show, is everywhere, and Sterling is a secret saboteur, working sometimes for years, just to take down a few jumbo tron like screens of advertising for a few hours When Sterling white female meets Lore black female no [...]

    3. I couldn t put this book down The author s rich descriptions and deep characters hooked me from the get go I enjoyed seeing the world from several characters perspectives The One Way Rain is eerily close to our own near future, and holds many lessons within its pages I struggled alongside characters in the book, who were coming to terms or not with privilege and racism, action and inaction The story delved deep into these ideas without being forced or preachy Great, quick read.

    4. I won a copy of The One Way Rain in a LibraryThing member giveaway last year, but circumstances prevented me from engaging with it fully and finishing it until now At long last, I can fulfill my promise to publish an honest review as recompense for the free read As it turns out, author Cathy Jacobowitz s little known dystopian novel commanded my high regard by the conclusion This is a great novel that introduces the fine craftsmanship of a writer destined to attract a substantial fanbase if only [...]

    5. Powerful, devastating, galvanizing.In the great sci fi tradition of Derrick Bell s The Space Traders, this story doesn t flinch, prevaricate, or apologize as it drills into the horrifying truth of the ease with which humanity fades away under the relentless pounding of casual, indifferent hate Crisp, vibrant prose creates a cityscape suffused with the caterwauling of corporate interests, where ignorance and shallowness hold the populace in thrall It is a future that seems far too familiar and fa [...]

    6. I won this in a First Reads giveaway.I have to be honest I had a hard time getting into this book I found I was getting lost throughout and it often took me longer to figure out what was going on than I care to admit, only because it bounced around too much for me Hence, the lower rating It was ok.I did like the concept, as disturbing as it was I did feel like I was reading a compilation of Armageddon, the Holocaust and Martin Luther King wrapped into one A world wrapped up in material items and [...]

    7. I received this book as a gift from the author I read it immediately and had to pass it off to my friends because it was such a curiosity It reminded me a lot of the handmaid s tale where the dystopia is so deeply rooted into the culture that you can see almost no way of righting the wrong, at first glance.The story is a bit jumbled feeling, and the beginning could be a bit stronger but I do believe this is the most comprehensive and inoffensive racially conscious dystopian books that I have eve [...]

    8. In a segregated world, Sterling Teacher strives to make a difference in the cover of the night Lore Henry stands up and offers nonviolent resistance Both battle for justice in their own way, but the government and big business threaten to smother them and snuff out any voice that speaks out against them Is it worth the struggle or even death This is a dystopian novel that takes place in 2023 A future not so far away and frighteningly not so unrealistic I had trouble getting into it at first, but [...]

    9. This slim book was tangled, and not as clear as I would have liked There are three people whose stories we follow in a jumbled fashion They are tangled, with time treated as just another ingredient in the mix Things happen to one character, then to another much later in the story, and when the event is the same for both, it gets a little strange I am glad I don t live in this imagined world I don t care for the massive amount of intrusive advertising that currently exists on the world wide web I [...]

    10. I won this on.I read this in one day and could not put it down Cathy Jacobowitz paints a dark picture of a United States with apartheid like laws separate white consumers who are almost brainwashed by brands and blacks who work in factories with slave like conditions or live in a no mans land with no rights at all As bad as like is, there are still people brave enough to make a better life or to love.

    11. I received a copy of this book through first reads.This was a gripping and extremely well written novel of a future America gone wrong A powerful, emotional read I did struggle with the concept, perhaps the future could have been 50 100 years down the road instead of less than a decade As I was reading I was thinking to myself, there s no way this could happen now maybe it s the Canadian in me.But all in all, a good story worth reading.

    12. I couldn t stay with it at first, but am glad I did Powerful, disturbing and pray to God that is not our future Thank you Cathy
