When Ellie and six of her friends return home from a camping trip deep in the bush, they find things hideously wrong -- their families gone, houses empty and abandoned, pets and stock dead. Gradually they begin to comprehend that their country has been invaded and everyone in the town has been taken prisoner. As the horrible reality of the situation becomes evident they have to make a life-and-death decision: to run back into the bush and hide, to give themselves up to be with their families, or to stay and try to fight. This reveting, tautly-drawn novel seems at times to be only a step away from today's headlines.
Australian friends return from a camping trip in the outback to discover that enemy forces have invaded the country and imprisoned everyone in town. A gripping tale, told with Marsden's customary incisiveness. Ages 12-up.
Love this series!! I have read all the books 5 times each!!! Best series ever, must read :)
Very good but unbelievable at parts
Tomorrow When the War began is a good read with many action packed pages. However, the book is often slow at times and many of the characters are hard to like. All in all, this book is slightly better than average and reading it is a good way to pass the time.
I've heard the first few chapters on audio book and seen the movie, I known the book is so much better. 6 out of 5 stars (:
