THE END OF THE WORLD started quietly enough for Tane Williams and Rebecca Richards. . . .Tane and Rebecca aren’t sure what to make of it—a sequence of 1s and 0s, the message looks like nothing more than a random collection of alternating digits. Working to decode it, however, Tane and Rebecca discover that the message contains lottery numbers . . . lottery numbers that win the next random draw! Suddenly Tane and Rebecca are rich, but who sent the numbers? And why? More messages follow, and slowly it becomes clear—the messages are being sent back in time from Tane and Rebecca’s future. Something there has gone horribly wrong, and it’s up to them to prevent it from happening. As they follow the messages’ cryptic instructions, Tane and Rebecca begin to suspect the worst—that the very survival of the human race may be at stake.

The concept behind 'The Tomorrow Code' is very interesting however apart from that I don't see anything in it that would make me want to recommend it to anyone. The beginning of the book was quite slow and I got really bored with it until I made it over halfway through.

The book follows the story of the two main characters Tane and Rebecca as they delve into the depths of (well I'm not quite sure what to call it because it isn't exactly time travel but it does involve manipulating time) wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff and try to stop the world from ending. There are quite a few problems they have to overcome along the way such as people not believing them and not understanding messages and dangerous mist... Who would've known something would go wrong when one environmental activist tries to save the world with her friend and his brother. Reading this book all I could do was sit there and wonder, "Why didn't they tell anyone?" Because seriously, why didn't they?! It's not like they were told they couldn't or else someone would die. Ok so they may have been told not to tell anyone but how are people from the future going to know they told anyone until who knows how many years later.

One good thing about this book was that I wasn't able to guess the ending which I find I am able to do for most. Like with the Divergent trilogy, I didn't even have to read the whole second book to guess the ending, which was good because I didn't even like the books anyway. I liked the first one though but that's not what this is about. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen something changed, even so I still would not recommend it as a book to read. 

Romance: There is a bit of romance in this book but the book doesn't focus on it at all which is a good thing if you don't want to read that kind of book.

Interesting: The author uses real peoples names as characters in his books. Brian Falkner visits schools and runs competitions and the prize is having your name in one of his books which I thought was cool idea on his part. 

2 1/2 stars actually. I was just indecisive and changed it after I made this... I also can't work out to colour half the star only.

Did anyone notice the doctor who reference?

Till next time,
Erin xoxo.
