This slim novel contains the inner mental ramblings of discontent from various people who are spending their holiday in rental cabins located in Scotland. Many of the occupants have family vacation cabins and have been coming here for years so they know that it rains but none of them expected a week of solid drenching rains. Imagine a remote area with no real wifi (except a mile away at the pub), no real tv reception and everyone stuck inside with just each other's company. All of them are doing their best to put up with the one noisy cabin filled with immigrants (that no one is able to pinpoint their homeland correctly) who play their music loud and party til the wee hours. Inbetween these bouts of crankiness there are short passages about the nature that is going on blissfully all around them. The writing is extremely atmospheric when it is about the surroundings and even though I was able to connect with a few of the characters it didn't mean I liked any of them.
It does come together in one unifying event but I would have loved to have seen that built up a bit more. 3 1/2 stars
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
