Summary

The third book in the internationally best-selling Tomorrow, When the War Began series.

What's the biggest danger you can think of? This is bigger. What's the toughest challenge you can imagine? This is tougher. What's the greatest fear you have? You're about to find out.

"How long do you think they'll keep looking for us?" I asked Lee, as we lay there. "Until they find us," he answered grimly.

They came in summer. They fell upon the land swiftly and suddenly. Through autumn they spread, like locusts, like mice, like a plague. Now its winter. They're still here. But so too are Ellie and Homer and their friends.

Not just for teenagers, brilliant third book!

Firstly we loved the first and second book and couldn't wait to start the third book in the series. This series really does keep you wanting more and its written so well, the narrator also really adds to the enjoyment of this audiobook. Its by far the best series of books we have enjoyed in a long time and we thank the author for coming up with such a great story line. As for this book in particular the book covers the obvious fatigue in fighting and surviving the war without trying to get caught. They are always on edge and do their best to help the war effort to get their country back. This is no easy task and in this book they come across a lot of hard challenges and have to deal with some rather difficult situations. We feel the book is written incredibly well because often you feel like you are personally involved. It explores themes such as the killing of people and the guilt involved no matter what the reason for doing it is (such as self defence). It deals very well with situations and emotions that have to be buried as its more important trying to stay alive, but obviously these feelings will come out at some point. This book is all about their desperate need to survive, hoping for help and to escape the war but also struggling with the weight of the responsibility of fighting the war and feeling like someone else should be in charge as they are just teenagers after all. You've got to remember they are always on edge of being caught, scared of being killed or their families suffering for their actions. This book certainly throws a lot at you, lots of different situations that will keep you griped. This is one of the most emotionally intense books on the series and because of that its probably one of the most interesting. Highly recommended and don't forget this book is suitable for far more than just 11-13 year olds, we are adults and we love this series!

Any additional comments?

There are some quite climitac storylines here. The emphasis of this was lost with the way the story was read and portrayed. There needs to be room for some dramatic emphasis or indeed pauses.
