    One thought on “The Dead of Night”

    1. boof - reading these quick books to cleanse the brain-palate before diving into proust4 means i get awful far behind in my reviewing! i am really liking this series, which is fortunate because i have once again done the thing i do, which is to buy all seven before reading the first one. dumbass. (untruth: book six is in the mail on its way to me - somehow out of print and hardish to get. but i got.) dunno - i like where this series is going, and from what i gather about twilight and some other t [...]

    2. The Dead of Night continued to affirm just how screwed I'd be if it were me instead of Ellie hunkered down in Hell."I love camping! I’m gonna go read up right now on which plants I can eat and which ones will kill me.”Not that I don’t enjoy the occasional nature activity, it is just that my first reaction to being asked to go camping/kayaking/hiking is suddenly getting The Lemonheads “I Lied About Being the Outdoor Type” stuck in my head. I can’t go away with you on a rock climbing w [...]

    3. Our poor heroes aren’t so plucky and full of bravado anymore, not since Corrie was shot in the back and Kevin took her to the hospital. But the gang decide they can’t sit around forever: they need more supplies for living in Hell, and they want to see if Corrie’s OK, and they need to take some action against the army that invaded their land, took over their homes, and took their families prisoner.This book is much slower than Tomorrow, When the War Began. Our teen heroes are despondent, de [...]

    4. First Read: February 6th 2010Re-read: February 27th 2018 The second novel of the Tomorrow series written by John Marsden, it continues and picks up right where the first book ended. In the wake of losing Corrie and Kevin, and not knowing how either of them are faring in enemy territory, the group's morale deteriorates. Homer suggests the group attempt to track down Corrie and Kevin. They release a smoke bomb into the hospital and investigate during the evacuation. They discover that Corrie is co [...]

    5. I quite enjoyed this second instalment in the Tomorrow series. I will admit, both books have been incredibly difficult to get into. I find myself bored and uninterested until about 50-100 pages into it, and then I cannot put them down. That's about the only flaw I can give these books.This was raw and real, I loved the way things are unfolding and the new things that happened in this book. I like the discussions about heroes, villains, and humanity. I really enjoyed that these teenagers are stil [...]

    6. Plot summary: Following the invasion of Australia, Ellie and her friends are back in their secret valley, Hell, and dealing with the loss they suffered at the end of Tomorrow, When the War Began. But they can't stay in Hell forever. As colonists start to arrive in the Wirrawee area, they decide to take action. They're still not giving in without a fight. Thoughts: As with Tomorrow, When the War Began, it's been years and years since I read this. I liked it. A lot. But it's never really stuck wit [...]

    7. SPOILERFREE REVIEW (as long as you know what happens in Tomorrow, When the War Began)Plot (the first book)Eight teenagers go camping in the bush, when they come back, their country is invaded and war is about to break out. Now they have to fight to win back their homes.Stuff I Want To Get Out Of My HeadOkay, first off: I have not read the first book Tomorrow When The War Began, only watched the movie (I KNOW, I KNOW)Everyone who's read the book (or watched the movie), knows that it ends in a pre [...]

    8. What's NOT to love about this series? Maybe I'm biased being an Aussie girl who read this and all of the others in high school and because John Marsden was the very first author who I ever had the pleasure of doing a writing workshop with (lol I was in the ninth grade and was thrilled to be forced to write two paragraphs without using the letter 'A' under his instruction) or maybe it's just because this is straight-up story telling magic…. I don't know but this is my go-to series when ever I h [...]

    9. The Dead of the Night sees us return to Hell with Ellie and her friends as they struggle to come to terms with the great loss they endured at the end of Tomorrow When the War Began. It is a story about moral choices, about finding the courage to put yourself at risk time and again and most importantly, it is about endurance.Ellie, Homer, Lee, Robyn, Fi and Chris all return to Hell. At first they are all lost to their shock and anger that the enemy managed to damage them so cruelly. The time come [...]

    10. THE DEAD OF NIGHT is the second book in the amazing Tomorrow Series. It picks up where TOMORROW, WHEN THE WAR BEGAN ends and is just as exciting!Ellie and her friends continue to battle against unknown invaders. They are forced to act like a military force without any of the training. Even though they are sticking close to home, they feel they are contributing to the fight and causing the enemy some hardship.In an attempt to locate an alternate escape route out of Hell, the teens stumble upon wh [...]

    11. Interesting note, apparently New Zealand has been very helpful in this war. Coming immediately to the aid of Australia and fighting for her. Really?All I know about New Zealand/Australia relations comes from Flight of the Conchords and they gave the impression they were not fond of Australia and thought they were “subtlety mocking their accents” whenever speaking with an Australian. I really enjoyed the first book in the Tomorrow series but you know how 2nd books can be a bit lame? Dead of N [...]

    12. The Dead of the Night takes place not too long after the events at the end of the first book, Tomorrow When the War Began. It has been a couple of months since the invasion of Australia and the group of committed teenagers decide that they've had enough of sitting around waiting for something to happen and instead band together to change their dire situation.The Dead of the Night contains many of the familiar elements we came across in the first book - action, adventure, survival, and a little r [...]

    13. This second instalment in the popular Australian YA series is everything a sequel should be. The characters more focused, the danger heightened, and the plot twists just as interesting. Like the first in the series, I read this in one sitting and can't wait to start book three, luckily which I have already bought. This entry is very similar in plot to the first entry, with the kids sizing up and taking down a target within the invaders base, but this time we get to hear a little more about who t [...]

    14. The Dead of Night was quite phenomenal! Throughout the whole book, I was intrigued and was being entertained. Being the second book in John Marsden's 7 book series "The Tomorrow Series", my expectations were extremely high after reading the first novel "Tomorrow when the War Began" and it did not fail to meet them. The adventurous, action filled novel begins a couple of weeks after the devastating events of that concluded the last book. The brief brake between both books really added a good effe [...]

    15. A direct continuation of the events of the first book which means the rules of a sequel go out the window when reviewing. This is a slower much more character driven instalment, the calm before the storm so to speak. The only issue I had was with the ending which ramped up in similar fashion to the previous book. The final kick in the stomach to the audience is also similar to leaving two of their comrades behind. I really hope things get a shake up with the next book, we deserve that much. As a [...]

    16. In the first book you saw some action (view spoiler)[ how the group rescues Lee (amazing), or how they blow up a bridge(hide spoiler)]. In this one, the are more action scenes and they are more exciting (view spoiler)[ they are going to find sneak to the hospital to see Corrie, attack a convoy, find and lose a group of free Australians (Harvey’s Heroes), and finally arrange an attack to a military residence area(hide spoiler)]. The action scenes are described in a way which is better than a mo [...]

    17. Recently I read Tomorrow When the War Began because I missed out on reading it when I was a teenager. Which left the story unfinished and I felt I wanted to know what was going to happen. So I’ve now completed book 2; The Dead of the Night. I actually preferred this book over the first, the innocence of the kids is now gone, while still having to struggle against the enemy that now have to struggle with sexual desire too (actually I don’t think the struggled they just ‘hopped on’…so to [...]

    18. Me encanto el final, exactamente como a mí me gustan💞 no sé por qué tarde tanto en leerlo por qué amo esta saga y aparte es un libro corto.

    19. Actually pretty good, a little bit of second book itis but the filler was entertaining. Quick, easy read and loving the development of all the characters.

    20. Contains minor spoilers for Tomorrow, When the War Began.This book began with a bang. It was fast, confronting, action-packed, much more exciting than the first book. However, the second half was as boring and repetitive as first book. The characters really hit the fan in this sequel and did nothing put piss me off. Ellie was the main problem, though Lee wasn't much better and Homer was worst of all. He just faded into the background and did nothing. One of my favourite aspects of Tomorrow, When [...]

    21. 4.5/5What John Marsden does really well is create an action-packed story that also has heaps of depth sprinkled in between. The character development is just phenomenal--you really get to know the gang inside and out, and their relationships are realistic and drawn out. In the second book of the series, they find out what happened to Corrie and Kevin; encounter a group of adult survivors; burn some more things; and cope with the effects of war. As they see their hometown being colonised, they wi [...]

    22. There's something infinitely scary about re-reading a series that I loved as a teenager. Did I love them because they enjoyed them at that particular stage of my life, and have my tastes and expectations changed with age and experience? I felt tense when I re-read the first book in the series a few months ago, and although I loved it just as much as I did ten plus years ago, I felt that same tension when I started reading In the Dead of the Night. The story picks up a little after the end of Tom [...]

    23. This is the second book in the Tomorrow series Marsden, it was an okay continuation of the Tomorrow series by Marsden. Ellie and her five friends are still struggling to survive after unknown enemies invaded their small Australian town. Two of their friends have been taken behind enemy lines and Ellie and Homer work together with the other to mount a rescue mission. They are all struggling with the larger question of how to make a difference and fight this invasion on their own terms. They are a [...]

    24. A few months after a foreign force invaded their homes, Ellie and her friends remain in the hidden safe haven of Hell. They have fought against the invaders, and two of their number have fallen behind enemy lines. Now the remaining six will hunt for their friends, and in discovering a new group of survivors put themselves at greater risk than ever before. Following on from Tomorrow, When the War Began, this book begins a couple of weeks after the devastating events of that concluded the last boo [...]

    25. This book is a very good follow-up novel to 'Tomorrow When the War Began'. Ellie and her friends have returned to Hell after the horrific finale of the last book and have been there ever since. They haven't ventured out too much and the few news they get on the radio have made them depressed and angry. It's been a couple of months though, and they start to think that they should get out there again to try and help the war effort. The invaders have a strong grip on the country as there is not muc [...]

    26. I have to say, after being a bit dissapointed with the first book, I wasn't expecting this to be any better. When I started the book, I was glad to find that the start wasn't nearly as slow, even being a bit tense in some parts as the characters sneaked around the enemy solidiers.There were more exciting parts in this compared to the other book, but I still found it slow paced and lacking in the action I was expecting. As with the first book, plenty of the story was spend describing the characte [...]

    27. Desde Tomorrow, When The War Began me parece que la historia avanzó mucho.En The Dead of Night los personajes son más maduros, han aprendido a comportarse mejor y aunque se siguen enfrentando con sus propias culpabilidades, no dudan en ningún momento al tener que hacer algo que les ayude a sobrevivir."Estábamos viviendo una extraña y larga pesadilla en la que teníamos que inventar nuestras propias reglas, inventar nuevos valores, tropezar desorientados, esperando no cometer demasiados erro [...]
