Publisher's Summary

The sixth volume in the award-winning Tomorrow series.

"I lay there, heart still pounding from the shock of seeing the man surrender and then get killed, the shock of seeing so much blood, more blood than I'd even seen from one person before...."

They are the enemy. And they're still out there. They're in your street, your home, the safest places you know. You feel their hot breath, even in the depths of hell. Ellie and Homer are out there too. Lee and Fi and Kevin. They've forgotten what it means to be safe. Sometimes they feel like there's nowhere left for them. They may be right.

Critic Reviews

"There are plenty of dramatic, fast-paced battle scenes with lots of action and carnage, which is vividly depicted. Ellie wrestles with her conscience throughout the story." (School Library Journal)

So, NOT, Red Dawn

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.

For those who want, Action & Suspence this is it!

This is one of the best series of books I have ever come across, I know people that never read books that have read this series and loved it. Its wrote for young adults but people of all ages enjoy these books, and the Narratar of the Audio series is great. Each book is as equaly as good they all have plenty of exitment and suspence and are fast paced. My favourite Character in the series other then “Ellie” is “Homer” Though all the Characters are likable

Leaving Stratton and heading back to hell...

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.

Fantastic Series, Well worth the listen

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

Gripping story, perfect pacing.

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.

Got through it for the next one

This book feel like Marsden ran out of ideas and just needed a filler. I am looking forward to the next one and hope it is better.
I also feel as though Ellie should be maturing a little more than is written (man she is irritating).
As usual, the narrator was pretty bad.
