    Hey someone tell me if I’m overthinking or overlooking something but doesn’t the rain throughout the narrative suggest that at least in some places in the world its still warm enough for mass evaporation to occur and thus warm enough to support life? Is the rain supposed to be a sign of hope in the novel?

    Yes. Rain is a sign of hope. So is the whiff of cattle that the man and boy smell in a barn. So are the apples that have grown on a tree and are still good enough for them to eat. So is the fresh water they find (in a cistern if I recall). So is the last sentence of the novel: In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.
