The Tomorrow Series is, without a doubt, the best in the world. Marsden is a brilliant writer and I hope the series gets made into a movie!!!

If you want profiles of the characters in "The Tomorrow Series" you can check out the following. - short (2 or 3 lines) but just about all the main characters

or - extensive review of each character, but limited to Fi, Lee, Homer, Corrie, Robyn and Chris. Currently missing Ellie and Kevin. Ellie cause she is hard to do justice to, Kevin cause I have trouble looking past my dislike of him.

If you want JM's bio, there is a link to it on, there is also a link to a very good interview with him on the same page.

If you want a detailed description of how he came to write the various novels, then you want the books "Marsden on Marsden". Most libraries in Oz will have a copy of you can find it via the bookshop links at

John Marsden's Tomorrow series is so powerful and in depth that when I read the books I feel as if I have become the characters experiences their feelings. I recommend everyone to read them, but not only read them once. Read them over and over agian, study them, and they only become more powerful.

Why read books when you can see the movies?
Well, for one thing many books never have movies made of them.
Secondly, books don't have ratings, so a book meant for a young adult may well be classified MA+, because of supposed 'adult themes'. If this book was meant for young adults, why then are young adults too young to see it?
Movies often lack plot or depth of character, and it's often quite impossible to see truly what the protagonist is thinking.
Sorry about the lecturre...John Marsden is inspiring, especially the tomorrow series, but I have to say that he is not the best. His language is a bit simple, but he writes about issues that affect teens, even if they are in strange situations like an invasion of Australia.
