The whole series is absolutely amazing, I swear, I lost my life for 2 months reading these books. You probably don't need any filling in on details of what actually happens in the book, but I'll give you a brief introduction... A group of teenagers take a little holiday and come back to see their country has been invaded. Ever since I finished, (a good 2 months ago) all I have been thinking about it the books, I want to go to hell, I want to experience what they experienced myself... It's amazing what this book does to you.
Marsden has made no mistake in this book, he gave amazing descriptions, that when I saw pictures of what he had wrote about it was just what I had envisioned. When I finished I felt as though I knew the characters personally (I don't know if this was just because of the length). Dude, what more can I say, these books are amazing, they mess with your mind, you don't know how many Tomorrow Series dreams I've had since finishing, lol.
But yeah, if you walk past one of the books in your libary, or at a book store, GET IT!
I can't say I was too hapy with the sequel, 'The Ellie Chronicles', bit of a waste of time, IMO, I think if the ******* (you know what I mean, if you have read the book) happened again, just for one book it would be good.
I'm done... Now it's your turn, get it!!!
I started reading this series when the fifth book was released and had an agonising wait for the sixth and seventh books to be released. This series is one of the best ones that I have ever come across written especially for teen readers - and John Marsden writes a gritty and realistic fiction that leaves you exhausted and satisfied at the same time. Ellie and her friends will win you over and make you hate them a dozen times over as their stories progress.
This book will grab you and shake and make you wonder how safe you really are. In this case the country that was invaded was Australia, but it could just as easily have been New Zealand, or Hawaii, or Britain, or ... At times I cried, at times I cheered, and at other times I just read about their lives and was grateful it was not me living that life.
You have got to read this series, even if it is just so that you can talk to your friends about it. The one word of warning is that you have to read the series in order or it will ruin parts of the story and be somewhat confuding.
I was very impressed with these resourceful teens and the book was full of action, suspense and adventure. Marsden has beautifully captured the essence of being an Aussie teen in the country and has drawn the characters extremely well. I would happily recommend this book to any teenager or young adult, but also to any adult who likes a cracking read.
Unfortunately, the Kindle version of the book contained no fewer than 45 typos, which greatly detracted from my reading experience. I daresay that this book may have been converted to an e-book in Germany; on a number of occasions "the" was replaced with "die". How disappointing for Mr Marsden to have his book marred in this way.
