Australia has been dried up by a devastating drought, and it seems that everyone has up and left the small town except for Bill and Tobe, who plan on sticking it out bar hopping, I mean where else would they go, besides the local watering hole? In The Rain Never Came by Lachlan Walter, the story of two best friends trying to overcome mother nature as well as authority will have you cracking up, and flipping the pages until the very end.
As the drought seems to last forever, Bill and Tobe must find new ways to entertain themselves, and to get back at the authority that they are so desperately trying to avoid. When unexplainable lights form in the sky, things may not be what they seem for Bill and Tobe, and the rest of the townspeople who decided that they didn’t want to escape the drought.
Told with a flowing and captivating narration, this near-future tale will have you on the edge of your seat. It’s not necessarily a book that I could toss into one genre, and that’s what I like about it, plus Bill and Tobe will have you chuckling non stop. Sometimes they don’t know what they are doing with their lives, and sometimes it seems they have it all figured out.
I adored this book, even though it isn’t something that I would normally pick up. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was quite funny, and I loved all the different Australian slang, made me feel like I was part of the country. Thank you to the author for sending me this book!
