Tomorrow when the War began

Could be interesting, I remember reading the book years ago. Must re-read it now.

I disliked the books when I read them aeons ago because, being targeted at a young adult audience, they failed to go into details regarding the military hardware being used. Or the identity of the invading country... (I assumed it was China).

And they got kind of silly after the third one... the whole premise - they were evacuated and then sent back to perform a secret mission on behalf of the New Zealand military.

Also John Marsden is a creepy-looking bearded middle-aged man writing in first-person perspective as a teenage girl, including her crushes on boys, and first sexual experience. I think he's a paedophile. He looks like one.

I've never heard of that book.

And I can't take that trailer/movie seriously because that girl used to be in Neighbours, and I cringe at the fact that I know this just by looking at her.

I know, right? Go back to Ramsey Street you stupid no-talent harlot!!
Not that I have anything against the girl, I'm sure she's quite nice, but I'll stomp on her throat.

To be fair, the movie actually looks like a fairly high-quality production for an Australian picture without any big Hollywood stars. Last one of those we had was Wolf Creek.

I had the same issue with the vagueness of who was attacking in Children of the Dust when I read it aeons ago... By which I mean 2007.

I played a corpse once. A reanimated one in some University film. Everybody else got pale make-up, but they said I didn't need it. smile

Yeah, all the stuff pertaining to New Zealand's involvement is cringe-inducingly naive. Same goes for the US sitting it out. In fact, none of the geopolitics in the books have any resemblance to the real world. I realise he needed to do it for the plot to be even remotely plausible*, but has he not heard of the ANZUS Treaty at all..? As for the enemy never being named (I pictured Indonesia at the time of reading), it will be interesting to see how they're going to get away with it in the film.

DrT is right, too. I read the books in high school, as they were released, but I didn't see Red Dawn until a few years ago, and it is virtually the exact same story. My opinion of the Tomorrow books went way down after that.

Chay, as far as vague involvements go, yours is pretty vague. tongue

* - "foreign country invades Australia, USA's treaty obligations are called into play, foreign nation gets its ass kicked into next week by the Pacific Fleet" wouldn't make for a very good backdrop to a teen coming-of-age story.

Now I'm sure they'd be happy to send their one helicopter to make some kind of a token effort.

True. Although... if it were China that might be slightly more plausible than it first appears (only slightly)... although more so today since they've buddied up with Russia.

They'll be Asian. That much was at least given away in the books because the kid with Asian ancestry was able to pass himself off as an enemy soldier, on account of him "looking like them".

It already has. Just quietly is all. Through economics, corporate investments. Military treaties. Bases and other large-scale deployments... They're here. It's the 52nd state. Half an hour's drive from where I live their warships float around like they own the place... which they basically do.

They fear our spiders more than anything else. Even the harmless huntsman sends them into a shrieking fit. Mwuhahahahahaha!

'Course... they have bears and cougars and stuff.

Yeah. I don't get that. A huge bear is about to come crashing through their house, and a spider they could easily squish crawls out from under the couch and they faint, get eaten by the bear, then pissed on by the spider. laff

The above encounter may not have actually happened, nor may it ever happen. Please make a note of it.

That was part of the 'nor may it ever happen' thing..because I don't know. The thought of a spider taking a piss behind the pub after a night out is pretty amusing though.

Well, I must be magic, cause I've seen that trailer. As I said, about a month ago.

Also, what's with the hate frown

My "Fuck Off" in the other thread was at the crazy photo, not at you, like a "Shup up!" type thing.

Friends again?
