Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Tomorrow, When the War Began - John Marsden While I really liked a lot about this book, I finished it feeling a little disappointed at the lack of answers and plot completeness to the story - it almost feels like a prequel.

The book is written as an account by Ellie to record the events shortly leading up to and immediately after the invasion of her hometown, and while this method worked well, I found it funny that she would write so much about her feelings and insecurities regarding her relationships in this format. I also wish that I was able to develop a deeper connection to the other characters - getting inside Homer's head during this time would've been fascinating.
