So happy he left, though he deserved worse. I didn’t enjoy this as much as I did “The City of Ember”. The pacing in this book was better, in my opinion. Apart from that, the characters in this book are more dynamic. It was very touching though when Lina put ran to go help the people of Spark put out I thought that this book wouldn’t be half as good as the City of Ember, but I was wrong.


It discussed how war begins and how to stop it before it goes to far. I read The City of Ember years ago, and knew there were sequels, but hadn’t gotten around to reading them. Still, it’s decent for fans who want more of Lina and Doon–and it provides some mind-flipping concepts for the upper elementary set, which is fun.

La Gente de Sparks

They’re brave with great morality. The Duprrau of Ember series. The story resumes after the evacuation of Ember, an underground city, which has been cut off from the surface for more than years. I didn’t like this book as well as the first one, which I found much more interesting.

I liked reading about the people of Ember seeing sun for the first time, figuring out that it rises and sets–and green grass–and finding fruit growing in the wild The ability to honestly tackle as a difficult an issue as humanely treating refugee populations — showing how difficult it is, and at the same time showing a plausible path forward — is not a common one, and the ability to do all that in the context of a genuinely entertaining book is even less so.

The Emberites watch passively as the people of Sparks try to extinguish the fire: Doon saves the life of one of the people in danger, while Gebte is the first to rush in and help fight the fires the fighting has sparked no pun intended. But, the people of Sparks, and conversely, the people of Ember, are close-minded and quite ggente of one another. It was a hard decision to make because they didn’t want to make the people go because they had no experience of building or runnings town of their own.

This book did a really good job of capturing the tensions involved in a refugee situation, especially one where there aren’t enough resources to go around — a better job, I think, than most adult books on the topic. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Given the possibilities of having a previous lost civilization meet one recovering from apocalypse, there are so many possibilities. While the book did slide a bit towards having people turn out to be “good guys” and “bad guys,” I think it’s not any more so than any political discussion; I’m sure most readers hate certain actual This book did a really good job of capturing the tensions involved in a refugee situation, especially one where there aren’t enough resources to go around — a better job, I think, than most adult books on the topic.


There are two major problems with the book I think, fi Frustrating but ultimately pretty decent sequel to the fascinating “City of Ember”, this picks up right after the finish of the first volume, as the entire populace of the dying underground city make their way out of harm’s way, into the upper world.

I agree that the writing is fairly simplistic, but I actually felt that this contributed to the story, rather than being detrimental I felt the same about City of Ember.

Much harder than being bad. And lastly, there is a lesson or two or more that can be picked from this book. These two acts of selflessness are enough to finally get the people of Sparks to see the people of Ember as more than just a burden on their town, they can help make the town even more prosperous.

Amo cuando l Me gusto mucho The City of Ember I wasn’t expecting to read this, and I’m not sure how well it moves the story. I really liked this book and when I first started it I read really far in because it just kept leading me into it.
