Summary of the Story: ALL SUMMER IN A DAY

The prescribed story is a part of science fiction. A science-fiction is an imaginary story of the future, based on some scientific discovery. So such kinds of stories arouse our keenness to know more about scientific facts and discoveries and at the same time, it satisfies our imagination. This story deals with Venus, a planet in our solar system. Venus’ is called the twin sister of the earth because of lots of similarities, in shape and size, between them.


Though Venus is without any sign of life, yet the existence of the atmosphere has been traced there. Based on this scientific fact, here Bradbury starts his imaginary flight. He imagines some people from the earth have gone to Venus and formed a civilization there. The children are in school.


It always rains on the planet. Every seven years the sun appears there and that too for an hour. People normally live under the ground in some tunnel house. So, especially for the children, the sun is an object of the greatest wonder.

When the sky gradually becomes clear after the rain stops, they wait eagerly and expectantly for the sun to appear. When the sun appears, their joy knows no bound. They laugh and cry, run and play and thus enjoy to their heart’s content. The warmth and light of the sun are magical to them. But after an hour when gradually the sun fades away and the rain starts again, they become disheartened. A little girl starts to cry. Again they have to wait for another seven years for the sun.
