Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The adventures of five Australian teenagers continue in the sixth installment in the Tomorrow series, The Night Is for Hunting by John Marsden. While trying to care for a group of ungrateful orphans, Ellie and her friends struggle to survive against enemy invaders.

Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Marsden continues the saga that began in Tomorrow When the War Began (Houghton, 1995), in which Australia was invaded and occupied by an unknown enemy and a group of teens organized a guerrilla campaign against the invaders. New Zealand has since been drawn into the war, but the setting of this sixth installment is largely in "Hell," a part of the Australian outback used by the young partisans as a safe haven when they aren't launching attacks against the enemy. Ellie and her comrades take in "ferals," children who have been left to run wild in the streets of a nearby town. The kids are not receptive to being cared for, and the teens' attempts at building a sense of community and family sometimes allow for a few lighthearted moments. The war, of course, is never far away. There are plenty of dramatic, fast-paced battle scenes with lots of action and carnage, which is vividly depicted. Ellie wrestles with her conscience throughout the story. Does she have the right to kill others in order to survive? Marsden offers no definitive answer to such questions, leaving readers to make up their own minds. Although this story picks up where Darkness, Be My Friend (Houghton, 2001) left off, it stands on its own well enough for readers unfamiliar with the series to appreciate it. The main audience for the book, however, is likely to be those who have followed the war from the beginning.

Format: Paperback
Had the first half of this book not been bogged down by chasing idiot kids through the bush and kept focus on the war and the main characters, it would have been much more enjoyable. The children seemed to have been thrown in the mix to make our teen guerilla fighters a little less rough around the edges, but what the author seems to have done is tossed in five useless characters that needlessly get in the way.

It's not until the second half that the story picks up and returns to the character interaction and heart pounding excitement this series is known for.

Ellie and her crew are still battling the forces which have overtaken their homeland: here their rescue of a band of near-feral children almost exposes their cover and endangers all their lives. Ellie faces some hard truths about her changing personality in the face of constant war and conflict and Marsden remains true to his riveting action and fast-paced style in this ongoing story, which is hard to put down and accessible to newcomers to the plot.

I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars for the endless search that takes up almost half the book for the feral orphans. However, the rockin' motorcycle rescue/chase pulled me into the last half of the book. Also, the description of the "Christmas" they all celebrated.

I think the book deliberately slowed down so as to provide a big punch for the final novel, especially with its cliffhanger ending. I hope so, at least! Go, you Aussie rebels!

I was first introduced to this serioes at school, we were assigned to read it for English, before this book all books assigned to us in school were all garbage and I expected the same, as did most the other students in my class, most wouldnt bother to read it, so the teacher read it aloud in class, for most of it upuntil the half way mark I ignored most of it, until it dawned on me that this book was actualy sounding o.k. When I got home i got my copy from the bookshelf and actualy started to read it, and I read at any chance I had, and when I finished I read the second and third and then had to wait while the rest were written and released
The amazing story starts off with a group of teenagers going camping, and when they return the find the Australia has been taken over by another country, they go to the bush again to hide, but can't just sit back and do nothing and decide to fight back in what ever way they can, although unconventional, when all is said and done and the series is over they made a huge impact on the war, sometimes planned, sometimes fluked, of coarse not all survive and with every loss you can not help but feel the emotional pain of the others, it is the best comming of age story I have read, and although it is listed as a young adult series, it will be unforgetable to all ages and you will develop a bond with Ellie, Homer, Kevin and the rest of the gang, I have never fell in love with any fictional charactors the way I did with these guys, not even in T.V series
A story like this comes along once in a life time, do not, and I mean do not missss this book

Format: Paperback
This book is definatly one of the best. It is an adventure thriller, it captures you, and never lets go.The descriptions vivid. The night is for Hunting is about a group of kids, who in the first book of the series, learn after camping, their country has been invaded. there are 7 books in the series, along with a series after the war. I recommend you buy all of them. you wont be able to stop. Not only is it a Thriller but throughtout the series the main charecter has to struggle with emotions, and the growing violence inside themselves. These people stay with you, and you start to feel they are real, and you know so much about them. They become a part of you, youll hate to leave them. I know I did.

Format: Hardcover
This may be the weakest volume in the Tomorrow series. It is still a non-stop page turner, but it didn't have the action you'd expect after reading the first 5 volumes. The story is mostly about dealing with a band of feral orphans of the war. They cause constant trouble and frustration for Ellie, and the others. This is the only book in the series that leaves a cliffhanger at the end to get you crying for the finale...which I will start to read as soon as I finish this review.

I have just read this series of books in a very short space of time, and think it is a great story. There are a lot of Australian colloquialisms though, which may be confusing to North Americans.

Out of all the books, this was the one with the least action, but still a good car chase and a 'breather' in the action of the war...

I recommend the whole series.

This is the story of the century. This is a definite must read. This is part of one of the most phenominal series of this century. This gripping story will have you guessing. The details will set a scene all its own. With a cliffhanger, it will leave you begging for the next book.
