  2. It was unthinkable but it was very possibleThis was a kind of dystopian with plenty of actions and, surprisingly, ample supply of food Story their town was invaded overnight These kids were left free because they were camping in remote mountain area, appropriately or inappropriately up to you really , called Hell.That sounds promising enough although I kept wondering if it would have been a better book if the group picked someone else other than Ellie to write their story down That s so meta of [...]


  3. I find myself giving weird, abstract, and emotionally based reviews for books that have billions of reviews saying pretty similar things to each other So forgive me for this weird, abstract, and emotional review I do agree with the others this book is an incredible social commentary on war, and you ll be on the edge of your seat, etc blah blahAfter reading this book for the first time, I watched the recent movie adaptation In doing so I realized, with shocking clarity, what the story isn t about [...]


  4. It s like I m reading a Movie into novel I didn t no while reading it s picturise as a movie or not But that s a movie stuff for sure After reading I have searched and found that it has been picturised and that s great This thing has been written for a film After reading the very 1st chapter I m sure of it Not so extraordinary but an enjoyable read In this life of froth and bubble,Two things stand like stone,Kindness in another s trouble,Courage in your own.


  5. Finished it a few days ago Definitely one of my favorite stories of 2011 This is the first of a seven book YA series by John Marsden, and I m going to let this one review cover them all Spoilers for Book 4 of the series areincluded.I discovered this series via The Book Smugglers post on hype Then it was like, where has this been all my life I see the first book is supposed to be a major motion picture Says so right on the cover I have my doubts Can the movie version possibly begin to approach th [...]


  6. Ellie and her friends Corrie, Robyn, Lee, Kevin, Homer and Fi live in and around a small rural town in an undisclosed part of Australia They decide to go camping, to go feral and spend a weekend over the Christmas holidays up the bush instead of at the showgrounds with the townsfolk Some of them, like Ellie and Corrie, are close, but not all, so over the weekend they get to know each other a lot better Ellie and Homer are both from farms and Ellie s family s property is the closest to the trail [...]


  7. 3.5 stars but I am marking it 4 because, well I do love this book This is such a fun start to a series I feel weird writing fun when the story deals with a foreign invasion of one s country and home grown gorilla groups responding to the invasion But it is fun Tomorrow is told from the point of view of a high school girl Ellie, she is one of 8 kids hiding out in the wild and unpopulated area outside of their hometown The theme is somewhat similar to Red Dawn if Red Dawn had been done better, tol [...]


  8. Updated since watching the movie Red Dawn4.5 stars Tomorrow, When the War Began starts off with a group of teenagers going to camp out at a place they call Hell By the time they get back, their country has been invaded and they re the only people left in their town, as their families and friends have been taken prisoner Now they re faced with a decision they can flee or surrender Or they fight.I was pleasantly surprised with this book, i picked it up because i wanted to watch the movie, since bo [...]


  9. Recommended for ANYONE Especially those disappointed in today s dystopia Sci fi adventure novels and readers wanting a fast paced, action packed realistic thrill ride with fantastic characters.Bonus points interracial couplings, realistic teen speak, your worst fears realizedBack in 2003, I was a communications student living and studying in Auckland, New Zealand My newfound best friend Kelly was obscenely obsessed with Lord of the Rings Like, she needed help still does But while I had only a va [...]


  10. Like many, many others I was captivated by Suzanne Collins s THE HUNGER GAMES It hooked me with its pulse pounding action, nightmarish vision of the future, and most of all its strong, capable female lead and wouldn t let me go I finished it in one sitting Unlike many others I was less impressed with the sequels Thankfully the books I wanted to read exist After a very average first instalment John Marsden s TOMORROW SERIES is the series that THE HUNGER GAMES promised to be.The school holidays ar [...]


  11. I can t help comparing this to Hunger Games, which I read first then I came across this one and thought, Oh This is what a really good YA survival story is Because although Katniss goes about with the doomed air of a tragic hero, Tomorrow deals refreshingly with a band of realistic Aussie teenagers, with a believable level of independence They re trusted to go camping without adult supervision in the bush for several days, and emerge to discover that their homes are empty of people and their ani [...]



  12. Opening Line It s only half an hour since someone Robyn I think said we should write everything down, and it s only twenty nine minutes since I was chosen, and for those twenty nine minutes I ve had everyone crowded around me gazing at the blank pages and yelling ideas and advice This was very good and had I read it when I was a teenager I know I would have loved it Back in the day this would have been comparable to The Outsiders or the movie Red Dawn sigh young Patrick Swayze I ve actually hear [...]


  13. Personally, one of the scariest reading experiences is going back as an adult to read a book I loved as a teenager What if my growing up has changed my opinion of the book will I ruin a good memory, or reinforce just why I loved that book so much that the paperback I had eventually fell apart from so many re reads These were exactly the worries I had when I started listening to the audio of Tomorrow, When the War Began I read the first book a few years after it was first published, when I was 8 [...]


  14. I m really torn about this one It s a fairly interesting examination of teens trying to decide what to do when their country has been invaded by a foreign nation Do our Australian heros go to war Do they run and hide Do they just hook up with each other and get their freak on out in the Outback Eventually, they do all three in one form or another, but I never really got attached to the story It s written as a journal entry by one of the girls, 17 year old Ellie, so it reads as though it s been w [...]


  15. When Ellie, a high school senior who lives on a ranch in rural Australia, gets the idea to invite all her friends to go bush and spend five days in the outback wilderness, they think it will be fun to get away from everything they know for a short while But they never expected everything to change while they were gone After returning from a fun, successful trip, the group of seven kids Ellie, Corrie, Kevin, Homer, Robyn, Lee, and Fi discover that something really bad has happened Their first sto [...]


  16. 5 Highly recommended for readers young and old.I ve been late to the party in reading John Marsden I ve enjoyed his interviews and seen coverage of his school, Candlebark, north of Melbourne candlebarkfo In this 1993 novel, the kids are in their early to mid teens and show the kind of resourcefulness that I imagine Candlebark is hoping to instil in their primary school students, without the homemade bomb capabilities, though In my girls rural high school, one of the boys was funny and very well [...]


  17. More like 3.5 starsI love survival tales and this is an exciting and different spin then I have been reading of late No apocalypse, no zombies and no little children dying horrible deaths Ellie and her friends are in their last year of high school and decide over the break to go on a week camping hiking trip deep into the outback This was a great start, I love to read about camping but to be clear I do not camp Gah Its the worst, I am miserable the second the word tent is mentioned Anyway they h [...]


  18. Looks like I m in the minority here.Tomorrow, When the War Began is a written account of Ellie and her friends, who after going off on a camping trip for a few days, return to discover that their family and everyone else in their town is missing, and soldiers are patrolling and looting I m starting to think survivalist stories aren t for me.First reading and hating Gone Home, and then this one This time my dislike rested with the dreaded r word Romance Even worse Teenage Romance.In the midst of [...]


  19. 3.5 starsWhenever I hear a random, not easily explainable boom, there is a small part of me that wonders if that noise I am brushing off as a transformer going out or random firework is actually something much sinister What if it is in fact not a benign blast but the first act of war There I ll be, wandering around in my safe oblivious bubble with electricity, plumbing, shelter and easily obtainable food and that boom was the moment my normal world changed forever That is what happens to Ellie [...]


  20. Eight teenagers who go camping in the bush for a few days, only to return and find that Australia had been invaded by an unknown enemy They then spend the next five books fighting a guerrilla war against the invaders The story is narrated by Ellie, who is elected to keep a written record of what happens to them However, her record quickly turns into something closer to being a diary.I read this at a much earlier age than I was supposed to at about eight or nine rather than fourteen or fifteen As [...]


  21. I ve lost track of how many times I ve read this book But I never get tired of reading it Coming to the Tomorrow series rather late in the game I d hazard I was 16 when I first picked it up , I suspect if I had read it earlier it would have had of an impact on myself Even so, the book s impact is great The writing is perfect, the premise of the book that Australia has been invaded is breathtaking, and the characters and their actions are unforgettable I ve been on a real teenage YA kick lately, [...]



  22. I really ended up liking this It took me about 50 pages to get into it but I think it was really good It follows 7 teenagers who go on a camping trip in the Australian bush and when they come home they find out that their town has been invaded by an unknown foreign country and everyone is gone so they start fighting a Guerilla war of sorts It s told in the style of someone after the events writing down what happens and I really liked it I found her tone really well done and I think that the MC h [...]


  23. I liked the premise, but it fell flat for me I wasn t really invested in the characters and I would have liked to get answers about why the invasion happened, who did it and all that jazz I m assuming this is answered in the next books in the series, but I don t really think I ll continue it.


  24. I love that Tomorrow When the War Began is set in the 90s first published in 1993 It is refreshing to read about teenage lives without the technology we are so used to, like high speed internet or smartphones I couldn t help but wonder what it d be like to have my country invaded and not be able to text or call to see where my friends and family were, read the news on my iPhone, or head straight to Twitter to see what other people are saying Technology is such a huge part of our lives now that i [...]


  25. My main issue with this book is the voice Marsden s writing is dry, non descriptive, and oh so masculine, but his main character is a girl He made her analytic with a bit of an ego to try and compensate for the guyness of her, but even girls who are analytic than emotional are still girls We still think like girls and act like girls There is nothing girl about Ellie I read her as a girl with a man s voice narrating her story because there was no way a girl would have those thought processes.Non [...]


  26. A very long time ago in my case probably literally half a life time ago I stumbled upon this book in my local library I read it and it stuck with me ever since Now I found it again this time in the English original and I decided to give it another try and see if it still impacts me the way it did all those years ago So did it Let s see.Tomorrow when the war began is the first in a series of YA novels about how ordinary teenagers deal with being thrown into the impossible situation of a war.The m [...]


  27. So, I ve read this a couple times and it does hold up on my re read This book is the start of a seven part series that is basically a book version of Red Dawn, except with Australian teens and a bit less death For the most part I really thought the teens were fairly realistic, but did get annoyed at Ellie s wishy washy romantic feelings between both Lee and Homer And there was a part where I think my head just snapped back, after Ellie tells Lee to disregard their kiss and just write it off as h [...]


  28. I originally read this series when I was in school Nearly 20 years after it was first published there was a film version, which for the record, a lot of people hated.Except me.I freaking loved it.Maybe because I was living overseas at the time and I was pretty excited about an Aussie action film based on one of my favourite childhood books.Maybe because it was quite a good adaptation that identified and then improved upon the characteristics of the main characters Maybe it was because there was [...]
