Book Review – When the Rain Stops by John Callas

When The Rain Stops by John Callas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Growing up in the ghetto is tough. And when John’s mother sends him off to military school, he is left feeling like he isn’t wanted anymore and so begins his journey into depression.

When the Rain Stops by John Callas is thought provoking, emotional, compelling and despite its serious nature, has a smattering of humour. The author interjects some insight as he tells his real-life story about his early years, the bullying he suffered, the injustices he witnessed, and his attempted suicide.

I noticed while reading this story that there were people who reached out to John, and showed him they cared in every step of his journey. I felt like they were true guardian angels for him, and while John couldn’t see it at first, there was always someone on his side, wanting to help. Thankfully, he came to this realization. He met people who showed him a different way of thinking, and he took that positive energy and turned his life around for the better.

This truly is an uplifting story and I believe this perspective may help someone who is struggling.
