    2. What a tease Reading this has now made me want to read the rest of the series I m looking forward to new science fiction Update I read Crewel and was HORRIBLY disappointed Terrible main character, stupid moony lovesick girl, two dimensional characters So disappointed.

    3. This story is part of Gennifer Albin s series Crewel World, which I had not noticed when I started or I would likely have picked a different story as I am not familiar with the series I am however glad I read it it was a good story with a very strong mood.Throughout the story weather is very very important, but it never quite becomes clear why, other than the fact that it is clearly manipulated and clearly someone is messing with people s mind The setting has a strong 50s sci fi feel to it with [...]

    6. This review and can be found at The AP Book Club I love short stories set in known worlds, so I was really excited when I found out about this one Crewel was one of my favorite books this year, and I am so glad I was able to learn a little bit about Arras and its people before Altered was released It definitely helps to ease the anticipation This story was a lot tame than Altered, but I think it still gave the same message that things are not always as they seem Instead of a young woman, we f [...]

    7. This one was definitely an interesting novella, and it once again had some familiar faces slotted into the words, only revealed as you read along If you haven t read the Crewel books and decide to read these shorts first, I think it still works, it would just have a different impact on you when the characters show themselves I almost wish I had read the novellas first, to get a sense of how strange this world is an how the rain is a lie, though it d be all that confusing without a little backgr [...]

    8. This story, set in the Crewel world, stands alone from the remainder of the series Although not an awful lot happens, this novella gives a nice insight into some of the rules governing the city of Arras.I really like the concepts behind this series It s interesting to have a group of people who control the things that happen in the world even down to the weather This story basically explores the loopholes in this idea questioning what s really real.I liked James, a young boy questioning the make [...]

    9. I m normally not a fan of short stories that are written to get people to read a novel They tend to read like the first chapter of a novel, incomplete and lacking as a coherent narrative The Rain Is a Lie does not have that problem It s a very short, self contained story about a boy who remembers a rainstorm that apparently never happened, set in some sort of high tech world that adheres to bizarrely rigid gender roles Albin very elegantly builds the narrative s ominous mood with one bit of dist [...]

    10. I have to admit that after a while, I ve found myself thinking about the Crewel world and wondering how stories may continue, what else might be happening in a world where everything is possible as long as you can imagine that Probably.The Rain is a Lie is a short short story, be it fanfiction I wouldn t open it, but as I knew what world to expect, I ve enjoyed seeing another possibility of the world.Haven t read the series Know nothing about the world so far Go and try this short piece If it ca [...]

    11. Despite not really enjoying the actual Crewel books, the short stories are really intriguing So I keep torturing myself with tidbits of an interesting world that I don t actually want to read about In any case, the 1950s , yet futuristic vibe is strong with this one, and it s always fun to see how rebellions leak into the public sphere Remember, the rain is a lie.

    12. So GOOD First time reading a Tor short and it left me wanting What a cliffhanger The brief time I spent in James world was sweet, curious and teeming with an underlying mystery I d love to know .

    13. I liked this book, and although the wording of it seemed kind of odd to me, its setting was unlike any other and the characters were great.

    14. Another little piece of information about how things run in the world of the Spinsters This one deals a little with the falseness of everything Interesting tidbit.
