5.0 out of 5 stars Prehaps the best in the series, 6 Aug. 2009
I have read all of the tomorrow series, many times, and this is my favourite. I love this book. I cant really say much else. If you havent read the series, you are missing out and read them! But be prepared to become very attached to these bunch of hero's. They truly are amazing.


While I Live (Ellie Chronicles)
While I Live (Ellie Chronicles)
by John Marsden
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 6 Aug. 2009
If you are looking for a book, which will send you through a rollercoster of emotions, then this is the book for you. This books takes you through it all, the suspense at the start is heartbreaking when you know what really happened. Throughout the book, you see Ellie go up and down with her emotions trying to balance her life. By the end of the book, i felt that the Ellie from the tomorrow series had made it through the tradegy which happens so early on in the book. I do recomend that you read the tomorrow series first before reading this book. I loved it. Thank you Mr Marsden, your books are a deleight to read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic book From J.Marsden, 6 Aug. 2009
Fristly, i would just like to say, that i have read all of the Tomorrow series,more than once and i loved them. I think that they are one of the best series i have ever read and that Marsden is a throughly fantastic author. If you have not read, the tomorrow series, then though this book will hopefully be enjoyable, I dont think you would appreciate the story and the history of this amazing bunch of people.
I read the book in a day, and enjoyed every minute of it. It is the continuation of story, where a country tried to rebuild their lives after they were ripped apart by war. Ellie returns again, looking after Gavin, and they both find themself caught up in another thrilling adventure where Ellie once again is battling for her life. I think Ellie is a fantastic character and i love her to bits. Gavin is, though very distrubed (you find out why!!)boy, is helpful, friendly and loving character.
I pay credit once again, to a fantastic author who has sent me through a whirlwind of emotions making me both cry and laugh. This is another stunning book from a truly stunning author. As soon as i get paid, i will buy Circle of Flight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Point brillant......., 22 Dec. 2004
Point Blanc is the second is the alex rider series and it is as just as good as the first one if not better. The book is well written and it is full of suspense, drama and of course, loadz spy stuff.
Alex Rider, tennage spy, is back and better than ever before. Two important people are killed in suspsious circumstances and they have one thing in common, their sons both go to Point Blanc. Point Blanc is a school set in the French Alps for boys to learn how to be gentlmen. To find out what is going out there, Alex poses as a rich man's son. Alex finds both friends and foes there, but what is really going on?
Point Blanc is a must read. It is thrilling and the plot is very good.. The book is well written and well put across.
I have read the entire series of Alex Rider and hope that Anthony Horowitz will write another one. They are very good. If you are an Alex Rider fan then READ THIS BOOK. IF you just want something to read then READ IT !!
Have fun reading!!

5.0 out of 5 stars If your looking for...., 21 Dec. 2004
If your looking for answers to unanswered questions then this is not the book for you. However, the autobiography is truly amazing and it is very well written. If you are a fan of Lemony Snicket then this is a MUST READ. You will not be dissapointed if you get the book, but do not except anything lower than the best from Lemony Snicket.He tends to trail off the point but that is what makes his wrting so good.He is a mystery writer and keeps his readers in suspense.The Autobiography is very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars downhill to uphill, 21 Dec. 2004
This review is from: The Village by the Sea (Paperback)
I did not enjoy this book that much. The plot is good and the storyline is good but it doesnt quite flow together. The second half of the book is very enjoyable and i liked reading the later half. Overall an ok book.

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Deadly Review....., 21 Dec. 2004
Deadly Dare is a good book full of mystery and family loyalty. To some people, the plot will be very unusal but for me, the plot was good.
New girl in town, Angelea, has introduced a new game to the class, Dare. You have to write a dare down on paper and then all the dares are put in a box and handed out. On the night, Theo , is supposed to do his dare, his best friend Ricky, goes missing.
Will the 'Dare Game' be discovered and will Ricky be found in time?
You pick up the book and have to read it to the end. An unforgettable book by brillant Author, Marloire Blackman.

2.0 out of 5 stars I was not impressed....., 20 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Martyn Pig (Paperback)
This is book is certainly very strange and very farfetched. I did not really enjoy this book, though some parts were good. The book starts off ok but it goes downhill.
It is about Martyn Pig, a boy who lives with his drunken father. His only friend is Alex a 14 year old girl living next door. One night, his father gets very drunk and something happens, the boy will never forget. From then, the events unfolds and it all goes too quickly. Everything is extremely farfetched. If you like that type of books then i recommended this to you. Overall it is an ok book.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Eye for a book and yet it is such a small book, 20 Dec. 2004
This review is from: An Eye for an Eye (Paperback)
This is a small but good book. It is the second book in the 'noughts and crosses series'.
Sephy is black and she is six months pregnant. The father, Callum was not only white but he was excuted.. So the baby will have a white dad and a black mum,and this is a serious issue in a world where you race matters, it could be the difference between life and death. The book is where Callum's brother ,Jude, finds Sephy and is hungagry for revenge because he belives that she was responisble for his brothers death. Little did he know that this was the night that Sephy sister, Minerva, decided to visit her. The book is only 52 pages long but those pages are filled with hatred, revenge and family loyalty.
