The power and unpredictable nature of weather has captivated us for centuries. Charlie Connelly’s supremely interesting book is born of our meteorological obsession and imparts some amazing facts on a range of phenomena, beginning with rain.
With the downpours we’ve had this summer, who’d believe that London is the sixth driest city in Europe? And apparently, on average, each square kilometre of ground in England and Wales is hit by lightning twice a year. Far from feeling like a stuffy science lesson, Connelly’s lightness of touch ensures an entertaining read. I have just one gripe, though: in this abridged version of
Bring Me Sunshine…
there’s little mention of intoxicating summer heat.
By Charlie Connelly, read by Stephen Mangan. The writer sets off on a meteorological journey exploring Britain's national obsession - the weather. He sheds light on all aspects of the climate and the weirdest events surrounding it, the first forecast and why people once thought firing canons at clouds was a good idea. In the first edition, he looks at everything to do with rain. From 2012.
