April Fool's Day

Written by Helen on May 30th, 2007

  • Book Rating: 4/5

There was much about this book that I thought was wonderful. I became very attached to the characters and found the story intriguing and informative. The subject was fascinating and elicited a variety of emotions. I also feel that there was a lot of repetition and at times I found the frequent changes in narration quite confusing. It is very detailed - 16 CDs! and I think that less repetition and fewer 'points of view' would have made the story more poignant and more dramatic. Saying this, I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
