Tomorrow When the War Began – tomorrow!

September 1, 2010

Tomorrow When the War Began was such a huge part of so many of our childhoods. With the movie coming out (tomorrow!) we pulled the original copy from the office bookshelf to reminisce. I remember, when I was 8 or 9, reading it cover to cover one night, getting into huge trouble as Dad wakes up at five in the morning to find me hunched over in bed racing to finish the book, its pages worn and tattered after only a few short hours and me thoroughly sleep deprived for school that day.

We here at Booked Out were lucky enough to be invited by John Marsden to a special preview screening of the movie for Candlebark parents and friends on Sunday. With great enthusiasm (and some relief) we want to tell you that it was fantastic and we highly recommend it for young and old. We are so proud of John to have created a story which continues to captivate the imaginations of so many people.

So, this weekend, go and see Tomorrow When the War Began, not only a stunning adaptation of a classic Australian novel but a great film in its own right. Then, like me, revisit the original novels and get hooked all over again. Just make sure you get enough sleep for work the next day.
