Booking Through Thursday
What’s your book with weather events? Hurricanes? Tornadoes? Blizzards? Real? Fiction? Doesn’t matter … weather comes up a lot in books, so there’s got to be a favorite somewhere, huh?
My favorite book is Crime and Punishment, and while it does take place in Russia, it's during the summer. The opressive heat gives the book another layer, and helps to unhinge the main character, Raskolnikov.
Also, The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy has great atmosphere created mainly by the weather.
