The first green rain produced a result which some considered almost comical: everyone caught out in it was turned green, and there was no known way of changing back.

The result was predictable: emergence of crackpot cults, religious prophecies of doom, and something tragically new in racial violence.

I thought this was one of the worst SF novels I had ever read. The cover sounded very intriguing. Deadly green rain from the sky! That sounds like a world-wide panic filled dilemma. But I found the charcaters to be dull and boring and the tale just seemed to drag.

Luckily for me this edition only cost 35 cents at a used book store.

Typically this is considered SF but it's not very realistic. A green rain occurs and turns people green, and this causes all kinds of havoc in race relations. It was enjoyable and kind of funny but not very realistic in how it portrayed the likely effects of the green rain.
