An enthralling read

This audio book kept us wrapped in the story during a long drive from the centre of France. My son,15, my mother (over 65), and myself,52,all enjoyed listening to this well-written book. The narration is excellent, and draws you into the story with an appropriate voice for the characters. I have put the others in the series as my 'next listen' choices.

Listen, you won't be sorry...

I highly recommend this book to any and all. While it is listed as a young adult book, the description of the Australian wilderness, and the human reaction to death and war is right on for all ages. While starting a bit slowly it really gets moving after the war begins. The narrator is great and the story moves right along, making you want to hear what happens next.

BEST 4.99$ I EVER SPENT!!!!

Loved this book!

If your old enough to remember the movie Red Dawn and liked it... you should really enjoy this.If your too young for that then Hunger Games fans should enjoy also.
2 Warnings 1-This is YA (PG13 for violence/teen drama) 2-This book does leave you hanging(1st in 7-8 books)
++This book is currently being made into a movie.
