My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The story of Robert Munro isn't fiction. It's the story of every man and woman who has a family to provide for. The conflict of drawing the line and not bringing work home in a bag or in your mind. The juggling act that no one really wins in the end. Wife, child, self.
Of all the characters Dermot Davis has created, this is one that I connected with the most. Stormy Weather is a compelling story about a therapist who interprets dreams for a living only to soon realise he's about to become his own client. What a great premise. While the writing wasn't as sharp as Brain, it kept my attention throughout the book.
Robert Munro is as damaged as they come and was an amazing character in this quirky plot. Stormy Weather definitely managed to squeeze all emotions from me and that to me is proof of a good book. The old cat man says, young or old, you must read this book. You may not like the story, but you'll discover something about yourself.
