The second of my birthday books gone - only one more to go!The problem with the Tomorrow series is that the books are like action movies. The car chases, suspense and other action sequences are exciting, but oh, so inevitable. Each new adventure seems to be a case of "what can do this time that will be different enough to shock and amaze? How can we top the last one?"Fortunately, John Marsden is a fantastic storyteller and there's enough balance that I don't mind the action sequences. And this one, with its emphasis on children, adulthood and responsibility, has its own special pace. Each book contributes a different aspect of living in a war. This one was a bit of a surprise - but then they all are.And this time, the book ended on a cliffhanger that quite clearly signalled the finale - the final climax. It is clear that there were never intended to be more than seven books. But now I have to wait for another year to find out "what happened?" How does the war end? Does Australia win? Or do they have to accept that Australia belongs to someone else now? Only a year to go before I find out...

I found book 3 at a library sale. It looked interesting, so I found the first two at the library. These are very enjoyable reads about six teens in Australia who are camping when their country is invaded. Circumstances force them to become partisans. Marsden writes with good suspense, action and leaving you looking forward to the next volume. I have two compliants - 1. By book six we still don't know who invaded. This seems unlikely for even the most geographically ignorant. 2. In spite of numerous clashes with the enemy the group never accumulate an arsenal of weapons.All-in-all these are good books.

I saw the movie and noticed that is was based on a book, so I came to B&N to look for the nook books and was excited to see that it was a series of 7. Please read series in order! This is supposed to be a youth/teen book, but they did not write them this way when I was young. I recommend that parents glance through these books to be sure they think that their child can handle the "war time" theme. But anyway, i loved the series and really was sad when it was over!! In it's own way, this is educational on survival that unfortunately may be needed one day.

I loved this book, I really liked the way that it was set up and the way that it ended. If you started the first book then you should really read this one.
