One of Maugham's most famous short stories, Rain unfolds in a soggy tropical paradise marred by self-righteous hypocrites trying to force their moral beliefs on a girl who basically just wants to have fun. At a running time of approximately 2 1/2 hours, it is too long for inclusion in a Short Story collection. (Summary by BellonaTimes) (1 hr 44 min)

Great story, good recording

(4 Sterne)

A great, disturbing story. I was quickly drawn in by the reading. The American-sounding male reader does caricaturish versions of some characters' voices, but not to excess -- in my opinion it's very effective.
