“It seems like suffering's the only time we can see what's essential.”
The sixth part of series. Five friends still hiding in main character grandmother's house. In young people are born instincts and behavior, which previously had no idea - a desire to help the youngest members of society, which are devoid of families are hiding in their area.
Whole of course is full of action, which is quite abstract, as in the previous parts and I don’t know if it doesn’t begin to irritate me. The release of the children at the hands of soldiers, daring action deliverance Homer using motorcycle, fighting with eight soldiers in the mountains... I was wondering if the characters of this book are not accidentally bulletproof. They have lucky, it’s fact, but the bullets flying around, there is a lot of dead bodies (in the ranks of the enemy of course), and they always come out alive. I'm not saying that in every part has one of them die, but I miss some time drama of this whole war situation. But I’m able to blind eye on what annoys me, because the whole is a really interesting and above all, a wise position for youth, contains so many thoughts and relevant conclusions, which really missing in contemporary youth literature.
Also Australian strangeness of nature adds a lot of atmosphere, which I haven’t mentioned even once wrote reviews from previous parts.
Now left for me with sadness reach for the last part of this incredible journey into the world of youth and courage, and I hope that I say goodbye to this book with a huge regret and tears.
“When it's all said and done, the only thing that matter in life are so damn simple. Family, friends. being safe and well. I think before the war a lot of people got sucked in by the crap on TV. They thought having the right shoes or the right jeans or the right car really mattered. Boy were we ever dumb.”
