April Fool's Day is controversial, painful and heartbreaking, yet has a gentle humour. It is also life-affirming, and, above all, a testimony to the incredible regenerative strength of love - how when we confront our worst, we can become our best. April Fool's Day will change the way you think.
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.
