I didn´t think i´d like the book first, but that was before i read it.
Now i read the whole "tomorrow" series and i love them.
too bad i can´t buy "while i live" e.d. here
It's a really great book, i've read the whole series and they're verry good. How the relationships develop within the book and the war's changing and their resistance against the war grows.
The series in order:
Tomorrow, when the war began (1995)
The dead of night (1995)
A Killing Frost (1995)
Darkness, be by friend (1996)
Burning for revenge (2000)
The Night is for Hunting (2001)
The other side of dawn (2002)
there is one more
"while i live"
I LOVED this series. I really connected with Ellie, and her internal struggle was real. It is a very vivid series, and I am a big fan of Marden's writing style.
I enjoy the books just as much as an adult as I did when I was a teen.
I just finished this book, and i hope i can get the next version of it!!
I really like it on the last few pages how KEVIN reacted on that they shoudnt just leave Corrie in front of the hospital :D !!!!!
The thing of the book that it is so atractive to me is that there is a lot of action in this book, and i really like some of the characteristics of the people in this book. such as how shy but "full-minded" LEE can be and stuff like that :D
I really like this book because alot of the things that Ellie talks about relates to me and it's like she's a real person and is so honest about alot of things.
I think it's interesting and grabs your attention with all the action and the way the author describes the characters and enjoyed reading it.
What country do you think invaded Australia? I was thinking China but another person reviewing the book thought Indonesia was the most likely. Why do you think the author didn't say what country it was who attacked?
In the movie they made the invaders Chinese. When reading the book I thought they would be European.
From the hints, I'd guess they would have had to have been some other race since I think it mentioned them looking different. (That would probably mean none of the European countries could have invaded) They were also from a country with a high population and a big military.
I hope the movie is good. Unfortunately, I don't know when(or if) it will come out in America. Maybe I'll be able to watch it online or something.
I don't really think that John Marsden had a specific country in mind, I think that he was just saying an 'outsider', something (and someone) that the main characters weren't used to.
have any of any of you guys read this book
This sounds exactly like the movie Red Dawn.
I have read the whole tomorrow series, and enjoyed them all immensely. However, I think that the first three ("Tomorrow when the war began", "The dead of the night", and "The third day, the frost") were the best.
I recently watched the movie remake of this book, then went online to read reviews and found out it was originally a book. Judging from what people are saying here they definitely need to go on my 'to read' list.
