Tomorrow When the War Began Book Review by Darcy Meares P2
Imagine being at the end of the road, the end of the time when you will never see your family again, the end of your life. This novel, Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden is an absolute thriller for book lovers who like an engrossing story, with exhilarating plots all throughout the story. So why is Tomorrow When the War Began such an intriguing, inviting and infatuating story? Because it has a stimulating story line complete with interesting characters and also because of the way it has been written from one young girl only 17 years old, giving her opinions on an increasingly dangerous war.
When you open this book you will instantly become a part of seven very different teenager’s lives-Ellie, Homer, Fiona, Lee, Kevin and Corrie, who decide that it would be a fun and wild to go on a camping trip to a nearby mountain area commonly known as Hell to the people in the small Australian farming community of Wirrawee. After their four days in hell they emerge, back to reality wanting to get home to find out how the Commemoration Day show went. This plot of when they find that soldiers of another country have invaded them will capture your attention like a herd of cattle and a petrol explosion demolishing a rickety old bridge.
The author John Marsden expresses the point of view from the down to earth farm girl Ellie Linton brilliantly. In the way of how everything is so dramatic to the way it is delivered beautifully, in the sense that you are actually in the story and all the happenings are happening to you, the war, the fighting, the love, and the different stories expressed by John Marsden on each and every character.
This is the first book of the Tomorrow series done by the incredible John Marsden. Marsden’s book has a lot of drama and action to keep you pondering on what the outcome will be. However, why do some people not like this book? Well, some people believe that there is not enough opinions on others characters, where as other perceive that if the novel was full of opinions and thoughts of others there wouldn’t be enough action to captivate the reader and put all their thoughts on the drama of this increasingly dangerous war.
This best seller is fantastic because it has a inclining story line with compelling characters with a first person view done by seventeen year old Ellie Linton, giving her opinions on an increasingly dangerous war and all that’s in between. Read this book to find out what happens in the end, and just think what would you do if you were in this position would you fight or to hide in Hell?
Tomorrow, When the War Began: Review
Imagine, going on an innocent holiday with your closest friends. Imagine being happy and enjoying freedom. Now imagine going to Hell, and coming back to war. 'Tomorrow, When the War Began' is an excellent novel by John Marsden telling the story of how eight teens went through just that. It is the first of an enormously popular series of well written and thought out books with incredibly realistic characters and plot.
The book has a very smart plot. The friends leave and when they come back, there has been an invasion and almost everyone has been captured and taken hostage. I love how it all happens on Commemoration Day. It is a smart idea and having the characters talk about it while in Hell makes it even better. The way the events all roll out is very smartly done; it leaves readers often wondering what will happen next. The story makes a reader stop and wonder what would happen if there was an actual invasion, where they would go, who and what they would take, how they would survive. The plot was so well written that the reader could actually see it happening.
The characters are described so well that readers can actually picture them in their minds. It was quite incredible, being able to close my eyes and see the characters come to life. Readers feel the characters emotions and understand their thoughts as if they were their own. The Author did really well making them all seem like actual people trying to survive through a war. Even all of the characters facial expressions and movements are brought to life. They couldn't have been written better to express all of these feelings and emotions. It was like it was written as the point of view of the readers themselves.
Some readers dislike the story, for several reasons. Some say that they don’t think it is written realistically enough. If you look around, read the newspaper, watch the news or even just look it up, war like this has happened so many times in the past and may even happen in the future. The author would not just make this sort of stuff up as everyone knows that would make it unrealistic. The book was written so it seemed like an actual event by showing all of the characters actions and emotions and the plot demonstrated what dos, in fact happen in the world. People who say otherwise clearly have not been through something like that, so how are they right?
'Tomorrow, When the War Began' is an amazingly well read book and uses very realistic events and characters to capture the reader’s attention. It is a book that should be shared around so that all may witness the author’s excellent skills. It makes us all think, What would I do if a war began tomorrow? It makes us wonder about things that we never would of thought about without it.
Imagine… you just experienced the most amazing and extravagant camping trip of your life. You were isolated from the outside world and just having a blast with your mates. Suddenly… you come home to find an unusual silence in the atmosphere. Something isn’t quite right and then… you notice your pets are dead. Your family is gone, all power and electricity is cut and no one else is to be seen. You discover… Your country is at war. Tomorrow When the War Began is a novel written by John Marsden. This is a well written book that includes romance, action, drama and knows how to keep a suspense. The characters will tell the story incredibly. I suggest this book for any teenagers and adults.
There is no other story like this one. Tomorrow When the War Began is a magnificent and unique novel. It has such a different storyline from any other book anyone has ever read. How often do you find genres of love and war in one story? And there isn’t only one love story, but 3 plus a love triangle. Who doesn’t love that little twist in a book?
There are so many different types of characters in this book. With each character’s unique and individual personalities, you are bound to relate to at least one. They have such a diverse range of personalities; it makes you love the book even more.
Others may say that this is a book that lingers on and takes forever to get to the point... That’s the best part! It keeps you hanging off the edge of a cliff! That’s the most exciting part of it all; you never know what’s going to happen. Who wants to read a book where there are no cliff hangers and gets to the point straight away?
Once again, Tomorrow When the War Began is truly an incredible book. There are so many amazing characters and twists leaving you with such excitement, suspense and just makes you want to read more.
