Charles is a complex and frustrating character and he really pisses me off. I understood his need for revenge and hurting the person who hurt him, but he should have realized that there was no way to hurt a woman who willingly gave up a son. He's also offered so much love but never accepts it, but I understand he is a giver of love but not one who accepts it you will understand exactly what I mean when you read the book. He frustrates the crap out of me, but yet I am sympathetic towards him.
If I were in his shoes, I wouldn't be very forgiving either. Overall, this book is a series of twists and scenes, that are harsh in its realism but fulfilling because of that. It's a lot more than gay fiction, it's a great freaking read. Charles, and every character from this book will leave you spellbound and then break your heart, it's just that intense.
Though Charles was a pawn in the game of adults and was left suffer, he still possesses the capability to love. I think it's for that reason why I like this book so much. I would love to read about Charles again, the ending left too much to the imagination. That my friends is a very good thing, so give some support. Jul 27, Christy rated it it was amazing Shelves: The emotions this story wrought in me left me silent and dazed, drained of all usefulness until I could ruminate on my responses.
The writing is stunningly beautiful and reminiscent of Southern authors such as Harper Lee, Flannery O'Connor, and Pat Conroy with all its subsequent family hatred and love. Interwoven within this prose is one man's horrific struggle of revenge against the one person who should have loved him unconditionally. Charles is fourteen years old when he is caught in compromi The emotions this story wrought in me left me silent and dazed, drained of all usefulness until I could ruminate on my responses. Charles is fourteen years old when he is caught in compromising circumstances with another boy.
Thrown away by his mother, Charlotte, to a mental institution, he spends the next ten years enduring the worst that humans can do to one another, suffering through electric shock, beatings, and abuse. But it is there that he also meets some of the gentlest people he will ever know, lost in their delusions and drugs. Released, finally, from the institution, Charles struggles to live free, staying with the father he's just met. But when that father dies, Charles flees to New Orleans attempting to discover any secrets he can about his mother to use against her in his vengeance.
I've never met someone as consumed with hate and bitterness as Charles is. It feeds him, appears to have always fed him. His relationship with his mother is frightening in its intense disgust, rage, and overwhelming need to exact revenge on her, not just for his confinement, but also for the deaths of people he consigns to her responsibility because those men loved him and Charlotte couldn't allow that.
In his hatred and revenge he doesn't seem to realize that he's made himself into a mirror image, a twin, of his malicious mother. This beautiful story made me think. It made me cry. It made me mourn. This book was provided by the author for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews. Aug 21, Wayne rated it it was amazing. The story of a family that fuses love to hatred and life to death and rolls those two fusions together, so that it is impossible to ever separate them.
Though only a few scenes take place in New Orleans, The Value of Rain echoes the southern gothic tradition, entangled and hidden bloodlines and all. Indeed Flannery O'Co "There are dead people in my head. Indeed Flannery O'Connor and Eudora Welty would be comfortable in this world, and would be envious of the writer. The characters are strong in their weaknesses, and their strengths always betray them. A first act of physical love propels a young boy from his already precarious existence into the living hell of a psychiatric hospital for a hideous 'cure' for his gayness.
Charles's non-chronological narrative of his journey through that hell, and all that follows, is told with an unerring eye for detail, both physical and emotional. The Value of Rain also shows the strong emotionally warping effect of revenge; given the chance to escape, to just be loved for himself, Charles finds he can not let go of the emotional and deadly pas de deux with his mother Charlotte. This is a lyrically beautiful book, masterfully woven with intense emotion, insightful and frightening in its clarity.
Sep 24, Gregory Allen rated it it was amazing. That which breaks us in our youth can take a life time to heal. Brandon Shire has displayed that very sentiment so eloquently in this impressive debut novel. The language at times poetic I discovered the book this morning and devoured it in a few hours even though at times it was uneasy to get through because of the exposed, horrific moments young Charles encountered in the institution. But this is when Shire shows what an intense author he is; unafraid to pain That which breaks us in our youth can take a life time to heal.
But this is when Shire shows what an intense author he is; unafraid to paint vivid pictures for his readers so they can live inside of that appalling world that Charles calls 'life'. With each turn of the electronic page, I found myself pulling for this protagonist on his quest of self discovery and years lost. I may never walk out into the rain and see the annoyance that I've often felt in the past. Feb 14, Alp Mortal rated it really liked it. Powerfully emotive characters, plot and dialogue - this is no page flicker; be prepared to work to fully appreciate the story, it's layers, and the message of possibility I almost could not read on at some points because I couldn't process the emotional responses quickly enough.
I read it one sitting - I think I had to to fully engage. I think this may well be the first book by Brandon Shire that I have read; it won't be the last. May 22, Riley rated it it was amazing Shelves: A very painful read that has no real moments of levity to temper the angst, then again it wasn't supposed to. It's an exhausting and intense read that will haunt you for days afterward. While it's certainly worthy of a reread or twenty, I don't know that I could. I think I spent at least half of it with tears in my eyes. It's not an easy read, but it's definitely worthy of your time if you choose to do so.

The Value of Rain is a book like a glass of ice water to the face, to the heart. The writing is as spare, unforgiving and mean as the story it tells. A torrent of horror and atrocity pours down with the vigor of acid rain. The extreme cruelty and apathy of the adults veers perilously close to caricature The Value of Rain is a book like a glass of ice water to the face, to the heart.
The extreme cruelty and apathy of the adults veers perilously close to caricature yet this very exaggeration serves to cast a spotlight on the harsh reality that is the central premise of this unforgettable book: At fourteen, after being caught in the arms of his first love, in aftermath of his first gay experience, Charles is committed, remanded to the first of two consecutive psychiatric institutions—institutions that are part warehouse, part torture chamber. Both institutions, more cemetery for the barely living than hospital, uniformly fail those in its custody.
One youngman, Snow, cuts himself, the reason for his incarceration, yet he regularly finds razors and continues to cut himself, eventually slitting his own wrists. Another youngman, forced to eat his own shit, also succumbs to despair and engineers his own escape. That Charles himself survives at all is a miracle and a puzzle. Finally the release he deserves, the release we find ourselves hoping for, occurs and he moves out into the greater world. The Value of Rain is a difficult book to forget. Jan 29, Caddy Rowland rated it it was amazing.
This is the second book I've read by this author and I have to say he's a favorite of mine. I'll be reading everything he writes eventually. What I like best about his writing is that he doesn't shy away from writing it real. I don't like watered-down stories and I don't require a HEA in a book. Brandon Shire writes gay fiction, and it's always packed with drama and realism.
This story is not pretty in any way. It's brutal and unforgiving. Right away it graps you by the throat and doesn't let up This is the second book I've read by this author and I have to say he's a favorite of mine. Right away it graps you by the throat and doesn't let up once throughout the whole book. I like that in a story, and I like when an author doesn't disappoint me.
Charles, Charlotte, and all the others are well thought out and developed. Hell, the whole story is conflict, so that's certainly not missing. I don't know if everyone will like this book. It's very dark and disturbing. For those of us who thirst for those types of books it works very well.
Make me think and feel. Oh, Brandon Shire, you do it so very, very well. The one thing that did bother me was something that might be a small thing to most. I really would give this a 4. The continuous use of peoples names in dialog. Hardly anyone refers to someone by their name over and over in a conversation. There may be a few, rare people who do this. I could see Charlotte being irritating enough to do it. But all of them do it, and it constantly pulled me out of the story. It jarred me and made me think of those old Publishing Clearing House letters from Ed McMahon, where he addressed you by name about twenty-five times in his form letter.
Error 404-NotBranded occurred
It rang false in those letters and made the dialog less believable here. When two people are talking, we don't need to be reminded who one is talking to. However, I strongly ugre you to not let that stop you from reading this book. It is worthy of your time, and there are many instances where the thoughts in this book made me stop and savor them.

Years upon years in a place where he entered fully sane and watched people get electrocuted, drugged, abused and gradually become INsane. When he finally meets a psychiatrist who realizes he shouldn't be in this place at all, he's finally released. Charles, rightfully so, is filled with hate and vengeance. He will get his mother back. From this point on, the story kind of lost me.

The main protagonist is Charles who at age 14 is in love with his best friend Robert and the first time they do anything about it, they fall asleep only to be discovered by Robert's mother. The story kicks off proper as Charles is committed to an asylum at first you believe it is by his uncle but then the realization that his Mother Charlotte was behind it.
Charlotte is the darkest of dark characters and she is unremittingly evil in all she says and does, we are told in the first chapter that she is dying and the story is told in fits and starts as glimpses into the past. I usually hate this style of storytelling but this seemed to work and apart from the unrelenting darkness of the 'fractured characters' it was the only thing I could fault the book on.
This book is definitely not an easy read because it is unrelenting and without giving away the end, there is no HEA. Maybe different people will take different messages from this book, personally I thought it was about forgiveness and the value of 'letting things go' no matter what the other person did or thought - maybe I am wrong, maybe the author had other messages to give I am not sure. I think I should give this 4 stars out of 5 - amazing for a first book but the style of it was not to my taste.
Jan 15, Vespasian rated it it was ok. The ending was a pleasant surprise, and struck the right tone.

And all the just-too-convenient connections. Lisa was Robert's aunt? Okay, plausible, but is it really 2. Okay, plausible, but is it really possible this information wasn't known before?

Sad to say, we don't get a real sense of just how long a period this is. It reads as a far more brief period of time. Another issue I had: Usually I can look past a few without being pulled from the story. Too many cases of "passed" being used when the correct word is "past. Too many cases of missing quotation marks altogether. I didn't dislike the book. It just didn't come together as well as I hoped. May 18, J. James rated it really liked it.

At first I liked the way the story jumped back and forth from the present at the hospital with his dying mother to various events in his past when growing up. Some of the scenes and situations were shocking and I had to stop and re-read just to be sure of what I had read. However towards the latter part of the book I found some of the scenes to be too unrealistic I am not sure if they are real events or not and I was easily confused.
I felt the pace was too quick and so the lack of depth at times resulted in some events appearing less authentic. A dark read but one that I found really enjoyable and certainly I felt I could learn from the style of writing used by the author. I am looking forward to reading more of this authors books.

Torn from the arms of his first love, and viciously thrust into an asylum for "people like him", Charles' story is a tough one.

His only motivation throughout the entire story is to get back at the one woman who caused him all the pain, Charlotte, his mother. Being in Charles' head isn't easy. However it is engrossing. What I really enjoyed about this book was how gorgeously it deals with the ideas of family life and accepting yourself. Yes, Charles is gay. Yes, this book does have sexual scenes between two men. Which, if I may add, are really tastefully done.
However this story is about so much more than just being a gay adolescent. Charles comes from a deeply broken family that is buried in secrets. The trowal creates the portion of an occluded cyclone known as its comma head, due to the comma -like shape of the mid-tropospheric cloudiness that accompanies the feature. It can also be the focus of locally heavy precipitation, with thunderstorms possible if the atmosphere along the trowal is unstable enough for convection.
Downwind of islands, bands of showers and thunderstorms can develop due to low level wind convergence downwind of the island edges. Offshore California , this has been noted in the wake of cold fronts. Rainbands within tropical cyclones are curved in orientation. Tropical cyclone rainbands contain showers and thunderstorms that, together with the eyewall and the eye, constitute a hurricane or tropical storm. The extent of rainbands around a tropical cyclone can help determine the cyclone's intensity.
The phrase acid rain was first used by Scottish chemist Robert Augus Smith in Sulfuric acid is derived from natural sources such as volcanoes, and wetlands sulfate reducing bacteria ; and anthropogenic sources such as the combustion of fossil fuels, and mining where H 2 S is present. Nitric acid is produced by natural sources such as lightning, soil bacteria, and natural fires; while also produced anthropogenically by the combustion of fossil fuels and from power plants.
In the past 20 years the concentrations of nitric and sulfuric acid has decreased in presence of rainwater, which may be due to the significant increase in ammonium most likely as ammonia from livestock production , which acts as a buffer in acid rain and raises the pH. Specifically, the primary types are A, tropical; B, dry; C, mild mid-latitude; D, cold mid-latitude; and E, polar. The five primary classifications can be further divided into secondary classifications such as rain forest , monsoon , tropical savanna , humid subtropical , humid continental , oceanic climate , Mediterranean climate , steppe , subarctic climate , tundra , polar ice cap , and desert.
They are widespread on Africa , and are also found in India , the northern parts of South America , Malaysia , and Australia. Most summer rainfall occurs during thunderstorms and from occasional tropical cyclones. An oceanic or maritime climate is typically found along the west coasts at the middle latitudes of all the world's continents, bordering cool oceans, as well as southeastern Australia , and is accompanied by plentiful precipitation year-round.
The climate is characterized by hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. Rain is measured in units of length per unit time, typically in millimeters per hour,  or in countries where imperial units are more common, inches per hour. The standard way of measuring rainfall or snowfall is the standard rain gauge, which can be found in mm 4-in plastic and mm 8-in metal varieties.
Plastic gauges have markings on the inner cylinder down to 0. After the inner cylinder is filled, the amount inside it is discarded, then filled with the remaining rainfall in the outer cylinder until all the fluid in the outer cylinder is gone, adding to the overall total until the outer cylinder is empty. Any of the above rain gauges can be made at home, with enough know-how.
One of the main uses of weather radar is to be able to assess the amount of precipitations fallen over large basins for hydrological purposes. Radar-derived rainfall estimates compliment surface station data which can be used for calibration. To produce radar accumulations, rain rates over a point are estimated by using the value of reflectivity data at individual grid points. A radar equation is then used, which is,. Rainfall intensity is classified according to the rate of precipitation, which depends on the considered time: Euphemisms for a heavy or violent rain include gully washer, trash-mover and toad-strangler.
The likelihood or probability of an event with a specified intensity and duration, is called the return period or frequency. The Quantitative Precipitation Forecast abbreviated QPF is the expected amount of liquid precipitation accumulated over a specified time period over a specified area. Terrain is considered in QPFs by use of topography or based upon climatological precipitation patterns from observations with fine detail.
The forecasts can be verified through use of rain gauge measurements, weather radar estimates, or a combination of both. Various skill scores can be determined to measure the value of the rainfall forecast. Precipitation, especially rain, has a dramatic effect on agriculture. All plants need at least some water to survive, therefore rain being the most effective means of watering is important to agriculture.
While a regular rain pattern is usually vital to healthy plants , too much or too little rainfall can be harmful, even devastating to crops. Drought can kill crops and increase erosion,  while overly wet weather can cause harmful fungus growth. For example, certain cacti require small amounts of water,  while tropical plants may need up to hundreds of inches of rain per year to survive. In areas with wet and dry seasons, soil nutrients diminish and erosion increases during the wet season. The previous dry season leads to food shortages into the wet season, as the crops have yet to mature.
Cultural attitudes towards rain differ across the world. In temperate climates , people tend to be more stressed when the weather is unstable or cloudy, with its impact greater on men than women. In dry places, such as India ,  or during periods of drought ,  rain lifts people's moods. In Botswana , the Setswana word for rain, pula , is used as the name of the national currency , in recognition of the economic importance of rain in its country, since it has a desert climate.
The source of this scent is petrichor , an oil produced by plants, then absorbed by rocks and soil, and later released into the air during rainfall. Rain holds an important religious significance in many cultures. The northern half of Africa is occupied by the world's most extensive hot, dry region, the Sahara Desert. Some deserts are also occupying much of southern Africa: Across Asia, a large annual rainfall minimum, composed primarily of deserts, stretches from the Gobi Desert in Mongolia west-southwest through western Pakistan Balochistan and Iran into the Arabian Desert in Saudi Arabia.
Most of Australia is semi-arid or desert,  making it the world's driest inhabited continent. Since rain only falls as liquid, in frozen temperatures, rain cannot fall. As a result, very cold climates see very little rainfall and are often known as polar deserts. A common biome in this area is the tundra which has a short summer thaw and a long frozen winter.
Ice caps see no rain at all, making Antarctica the world's driest continent. Rainforests are areas of the world with very high rainfall. Both tropical and temperate rainforests exist. Tropical rainforests occupy a large band of the planet mostly along the equator. Most temperate rainforests are located on mountainous west coasts between 45 and 55 degrees latitude, but they are often found in other areas. The equatorial region near the Intertropical Convergence Zone ITCZ , or monsoon trough, is the wettest portion of the world's continents.
Annually, the rain belt within the tropics marches northward by August, then moves back southward into the Southern Hemisphere by February and March. Its poleward progression is accelerated by the onset of the summer monsoon which is characterized by the development of lower air pressure a thermal low over the warmest part of Asia. During the fall, winter, and spring , Pacific storm systems bring most of Hawaii and the western United States much of their precipitation.
There is also evidence that global warming is leading to increased precipitation to the eastern portions of North America, while droughts are becoming more frequent in the tropics and subtropics. This amount is more than what falls in many cities in a year's time. Rainfalls of diamonds have been suggested to occur on the gas giant planets , Jupiter and Saturn ,  as well as on the ice giant planets , Uranus and Neptune.
