Read the book before watching the movie. Captures the imagination,
This review is from: Tomorrow When the War Began (The Tomorrow Series) (Paperback)I was first introduced to this series 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 up until 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, these kids 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 a T.V series
A story like this comes along once in a life time, do not, and I mean do not missss this book
