One For Teenagers

Tomorrow, When the War Began - John Marsden

This book is definitely for teenagers. I had a different idea of what the book was going to be like, so I was a bit disappointed. The story, itself, was okay, but the teenager waffling on about love in the time of war was a bit annoying. It was written from a teenagers point of view, so I can see why Marsden wrote certain things, but I found some parts unnecessary. The character would say something then explain what she meant as if the reader wouldn't get it the first time.
'Tomorrow When the War Began' is about a group of kids who go camping in the bush and come back to find the town has been taken over. The concept was okay, but I think it lacked substance. Maybe that's why it is for teenagers to read. I did enjoy their trips to 'Hell' and some of the action scenes in the book. I give it 2 and a half stars.
