    The City of Ember is a young adult novel that is a fantastic allegory for spiritual awakening, though I have no idea if it was intended as such The story is of a girl who lives in an underground and completely self contained city created by the Builders The population of the city knows of nothing outside the city, in fact, though they speak English many of the words in it like sky are not understood in any terms but

    DuPrau makes a typical first time novelist mistake throughout this book she doesn t trust her reader to infer In other words, she often over explains, following up dialogue and action sequences with redundant descriptions of a character s take on what just happened Another disappointment is that the mystery of Ember unfolds in an entirely predictable manner There are no great surprises DuPrau s characterization of Doon is one d

    Before The Hunger Games 2008 there was The City of Ember 2003.Well, that s not exactly true because, to be completely honest about it, before HG there were the Japanese novel 1999 and then movie 2000 Battle Royale from which only the blind would say that HG isn t based upon or at least heavily inspired by Which, don t get me wrong, is totally fine inspiration comes in every shape and form, and if a great book movie inspired HG author Suzanne Col

    My 12 year old son just knew I would love this book He s been hounding me to read it since early last spring Finally, I have read it and Jacob my son was right Omigosh What first hooked me were the vivid character descriptions that show than tell, so the reader can draw their own conclusions The story is told in third person, limited in two different perspectives Lina Mayfleet, twelve years old, sat winding a strand of her long, dark hair around her

    This book was a huge thing when I was in the fifth grade The film was coming out, and it was one of the pioneers of the YA dystopian genre My sister told me I should read this one, despite my adamant hatred of the similar The Hunger Games I m glad I gave The City of Ember a chance because it s an inspiring, spectacular tale of friendship, shady politics, horrid underground conditions, and the story of how humanity rises again.
