As soon as I finished this book I couldnt wait to start the next. The series is fantastic - I dont really have a favourite book - each is as good as the next.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Night is for Hunting to be better than the print version?
I've never read the books only listened to them, but they're on my wish list.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes...and I did.
Any additional comments?
I've already suggested this series to everyone I know as a great listen.
This book starts with them still in Stratton, Ellie is worried about the street kids they have found whilst staying in Stratton and goes off to try and help them with Lee. In the end they rescue the kids and have to flee Stratton because the enemy is after them. Where do they go? the only safe place they know is hell so that's where they go. The kids don't make it easy, they make it to the bush but the kids don't want to stay.
Its not all about the kids though, although of course its a huge part of it. Trying to look after them and keep them safe whilst staying safe them self and fighting this war. They decide to celebrate Christmas, to keep them all going and give them something to live for. This plan doesn't go as easily as they hoped, you still get some action as some of the teens go off to raid for food. The question still remains, are they safe in hell? maybe they can't take it for granted anymore...
This story will keep you wanting more, it might not be as action packed as some of the others but its still good. Its not easy for anyone and they are all struggling, war is hard and it changes who you are.
Highly Recommended. As we have said about his other books in the series, these books are suitable for all and not just for teens. We are adults and we have enjoyed every single book in this series. The author writes brilliantly and pulls you into the story and the narrator well she is fantastic too. She adds to the enjoyment of the book and we couldn't imagine these books being read by anyone else.
definatly well worth the purchase, it is a shame to see it come to a end eventually but, John Marsden really makes you feel a part of the book through his ability to write.
The good part is being able to pick up the book after a few days and know where you are as i only listen to it on the plane to and from work
I read some of these books in primary school,but I'm finally past where I got up to then, and the suspense is real, as is the surprise with the twists and turns in the narrative. The narration is perfectly paced, and brings the story alive with both humour and suspense brilliantly executed.
