New Orleans Rain by Michael Verrett is a book of pictures and poems centered around New Orleans. In this book, Verrett shows pictures he has taken in the rain. All the pictures are from places in New Orleans, Louisiana. I wanted to read this book because I have always wanted to visit New Orleans. It has always fascinated me and is on my bucket list of places to visit. Michael Verrett has allowed me to take a small trip there through his images. There were a few pictures in New Orleans Rain that I really liked. The cat looking out the window was by far my favorite.
The pictures of the streetcars was another favorite of mine. Some of the pictures allow you to see the beautiful architecture in New Orleans. I wish that some of the places were labeled with their location so that I could know exactly where they are in New Orleans.
The font used for the poetry was a little hard to read on an e-reader, but all of the poetry in the book is also about the rain. Instead of multiple poems, it is one continuous poem that flows through the book. Basically, this is an artistic book dedicated to rainy days in New Orleans. New Orleans Rain has revived my interest in visiting New Orleans even more. I am very happy to have read this book so I know what to expect when I visit.
