John Marsden accidentally put himself through the perfect training to become a novelist.
He read vast numbers of books, acquired a love of language, and became insatiably curious about other people. He also had a variety of jobs, 32 at the last count, including working in abattoirs, hospitals, morgues and a haunted house.
In 1985, rather to his own surprise, he found himself teaching English in the Australian bush, at Timbertop School. Noticing a complete lack of interest in reading among his Year 9 students he tried his hand at writing a short novel that he thought they might enjoy.
The rest is history. John Marsden, author of the Tomorrow series and Ellie Chronicles, is now the world's most successful author of teenage fiction. He has sold a million and a half books worldwide, and has won awards in Europe, America and Australia. His first love however is still teaching, and he spends most of his time running writing camps at his property, near Hanging Rock, Victoria.
This is the sixth in a series about a war of occupation in Australia. The series is tightly woven, and the listener will want to follow from the beginning as a band of teenagers turns into guerilla fighters. Suzy Dougherty is masterful at portraying the lead characters. She also manages the peripheral players with sufficient distinction. Both the story and its delivery are so powerful that listeners can almost feel the rumble of the jets and smell the bush fire. American teens will enjoy the sparkling rendering of the Aussie accents and the distinctive English spoken by their counterparts. Adults, especially those close to high school kids, will also find this series compelling. M.C. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
