BOOK REVIEW: City of Ember (Scott B.)

Posted on October 2, 2008. Filed under: Reading | Tags: , |

I read the book The City of Ember by Jeanne Du Prau.  This book is the first part of a series called Ember.  This author has also written People of Sparks.  

This book is about two kids who live in an underground city and they have to find a way out because they were running out of food and clothing.  The lights in Ember were going out so they have to find a way out of Ember.  They find instructions in one of the character’s grandmother’s closet to get out of Ember, but they get ripped up and have to piece the instructions together to figure out what it says before the lights go out in Ember and nobody would be able to get out.

This is a good book because it is an adventure/mystery book.  I think this because it has a lot things that they have to figure out and places that they go to find their way out of Ember.  When I read this book I felt in some parts I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next.

I would recommend tis book because it is a fun book to read for anyone who likes adventures and figuring things out.

Scott, sounds exciting indeed, but I was wondering do the lads get out ok? I don’t like to read books with unhappy endings.

I think it’s wonderful that you enjoyed this book. I loved it, too. I think it does a great job of showing how dark and claustrophobic things are in the city of Ember!

Nice review! How did you feel about the ending? Did you want a more “finalized” ending or were you okay with the “cliffhanger” the author ended with?
