When Ellie and her friends go camping for a week, they return home to find their country has been invaded. Ellie and the other survivors face an impossible decision: They can flee for the mountains or surrender or they can fight. World War III becomes an unstoppable reality in the action-packed first installment of the Tomorrow series--an international bestseller in an eye-catching new paperback.

When Ellie and her friends go camping, they have no idea they're leaving their old lives behind forever. Despite a less-than-tragic food shortage and a secret crush or two, everything goes as planned. But a week later, they return home to find their houses empty and their pets starving. Something has gone wrong--horribly wrong. Before long, they realize the country has been invaded, and the entire town has been captured--including their families and all their friends.
Ellie and the other survivors face an impossible decision: They can flee for the mountains or surrender. Or they can fight.

This book is about a group of friends going camping to 'Hell' for a couple of days. When they are camping they hear fighter jets flying low overhead. They go back home and nobody is in sight. The friends realize that everybody has been held hostage at the showground. They have to find a way to get their families back, but how? The best thing about this book is that it gets straight to the point and doesn't drag on. I didn't like the way this book ended because it doesn't show how everyone is freed. Then I realised it was the first book in a series. A good place to read this book would be when you are alone, perhaps your bedroom. If this book was a film, I think the actors would be Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and the other actors from Harry Potter. I give this book a 5-star rating for its excellence.

This book is very interesting and filled with suspense. The heroine is faced with many challenges filled with action, along with her friends. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in a nail-biting adventure.,

READ IN DUTCHThere is an edition which includes the first four books of the Tomorrow Series. I first saw the book in 2006 and after that I've been willing to read the book. Unfortunately, I never bought the book, because I thought it was a bit too expensive for a series I completely didn't know yet. A few weeks ago I went to my library and there it was (I had never seen it there before). Needless to say, I took it home and read it (during my final exams, which was not the best idea I ever had). The story is about a bunch of teenagers, who happen to be camping while a war breaks out in Australia. Therefore they aren't put together in some sort of camp, but are still free. They become guerrillas in order to free their country...I read it and I loved it. I liked the way it was written, liked the story. I couldn't put the book aside. For me, it is a 5 star rating, and I immediately started to read the second book of this series.

Tomorrow When the War ...

Tomorrow When the War Began by Australian author John Marsden is the story of a group of Australian teenagers who go into the bush for a few days of camping and return to find their country invaded, their town captured and their families held as prisoners. They have a choice to either surrender, or flee back into the hills. I felt that the author was able to capture the bewilderment, suspense and adventure of this situation as we read of how these teenagers cope. As a group they work through the stress, terror and desperation. While there is plenty of action to be had, Tomorrow When the War Began strikes me as more of a character study. The author develops his characters throughout the book, and by the end, these are very different people then they were when they first started out on their camping trip. The book is presented as a journal written by the main character, Ellie. We see the events through her eyes, and the author never lets us forget these are teenagers, as her written account gives as much attention to the age old teen questions of "Who is interested in who", and "Does he/she like me?". As the account is written by Ellie, what we hear about is strictly what Ellie sees and knows. As she openly admits, she didn't take any interest in current affairs so we never learn why the country is invaded or even who the invaders are. By the end of the book, these eight teens have come to realize that their lives have changed, probably forever and they must make a final decision, do they hide or do they fight? As this is the first book in the series, everything is not neatly wrapped up but the author gives us a powerful, poignant ending. I am looking forward to the next book and continuing on with this adventure.
