The Tomorrow Series by John Marsden

Post by makoto kino. on Wed 24 Sep 2008, 2:20 pm

From Wiki.

The Tomorrow series is a series of invasion novels written by Australian author John Marsden, detailing a high-intensity invasion and occupation of Australia by a foreign power. The novels are told in first person perspective by the main character, a teenage girl named Ellie Linton, who is part of a small band of teenagers waging a guerrilla war on the enemy garrison in their fictional home town of Wirrawee. The name of the series is derived from the title of the first book, Tomorrow, When The War Began.



I started reading them around year 5, and re-read the entire series through to year 9. I then went on to read the Ellie Chronicles, which follows Ellie's rehabilitation into normal life after the war.

Any one else read them?

I really liked them. I read the first one in year 7 for a book project and it kinda almost scarred me. whatnow? O_O
LMFAOOO it freaked me out. and then I had to read it again in year 8 for another project Rolling Eyes and I read the whole series from then. Halfway through the Ellie chronicles. I really like them. LMFAOOO

The Ellie chronicles are like, the shitty younger sister of the Tomorrow series.
I mean its good because I wanted to know what happened to everyone, but its like, the war never ended.

I've only read the first one.
But I found them hard to read, like, hard to keep motivated.
I think it had something to do with how many kids there were.
I was like "Dammit, I can't remember which is which. Mad"

lol@chu But it had a good storyline.
