    1. An SFF book published in the year I was born I read this book a very long time ago when I was pretty young I m thinking it was well over thirty years ago and I may have been around ten So the fact that it has stayed with me all these years has to mean something The central crisis, the thing that delivers the post apocalyptic stage on which events play out, is original and in many ways poignant Something happens that leads everyone normal to succumb to suicidal urges The only survivors are odd ec [...]

    2. All fool s day is an early dystopian science fiction novel by an Author that I am strangely fascinated by.The story is dated but that did not really bother me, after all it was written before I was born In 1971 strange sun spots started appearing and marvellously warm summers started occurring in England These factors continued for a decade and as they continued suicide rates rose These suicides became known as Radient Suicides and after a while population levels dropped so dramatically that civ [...]

    3. This falls into the cosy catastrophe sub genre of science fiction, and in many respects feels like it could have been written by John Christopher or John Wyndham The story tells of life in the UK a decade after solar flares flooded the Earth with a previously unknown form of radiation, which affected the minds of conservatively inclined people and caused them to commit mass suicide Now, Earth s human population consists only of the supposed transnormals, the obsessionals, the eccentrics and the [...]

    4. This has to be my most favourite of Edmund Cooper novels and he has written a few good ones We are once again in a post apocalyptic Britain This is often Edmund Coopers type of brave new world Each apocalypse is a different type of thing in most of his stories Perhaps it was his desire to destroy the real world and invent many types of new one hence his regular sci fi formula of after the disaster In this, particular dystopian world there are sun spots that cause mass suicide and only the menta [...]

    5. Post apocolypitic mayhem in rural 70s Norfolk Very strange premise, worked really well All too brief for such a fun trip Some outdated views which blemish it only slightly.

    6. This is a cracking book if you like old school post apocalyptic fiction along the lines of something that John Christopher might have written The book begins with a couple of examples of scientific papers that suggest that the premise of the story is possible, and although I find it a bit unlikely, I think the idea is refreshing after reading about a hundred books where the world ends through plague or nuclear war.Anyway, the book begins with unusual activity in the Sun causing the Earth to be e [...]

    7. This is a good sci fi novel that reminded me a lot of I Am Legend, as far as the post apocalyptic setting and the flawed yet intelligent protagonist So in All Fool s Day all the sane people have killed them selves off The sun has sent off sun flares that no one seems to understand, but their effects on the human population soon become clear enough They make those who would generally be considered normal people, want to commit suicide This goes on for years until the fabric of society has been co [...]

    8. I knew nothing about the book when started to read it I was a bit shocked at the beginning by the brutality in some segments, but overall I would say it is a good essay on mankind essence, a bit rough sometimes but written in a very good style.

    9. Liked the concept, liked the writing, didn t finish it Due to the nature of the story, the book is pretty heavy on brutality, savagery and let s not avoid the word rape.
